6 months

Seriously?!? How can this boy already be so old? I feel like the time is flying by me. It was just a second ago, I was swaddling him & listening to those newborn sounds. Now, I feel like I'm going to blink and I'll be watching him graduate.

Maybe since he's my last baby, I try to cuddle him a little longer, rock him a little more, and take lots of pics of this blue eyed stud muffin. I think he's pretty cute and it may be just because he's mine, but I do get a lot of compliments on how cute he is when I take him around town. I love this age. The gut laughs, the rolly legs, the squishy arms & tummy. I can't get enough. 

This boy is such a delight. He really is a good baby. Here's his stats at 6 months:

Height: 26.5" (50%)
Weight: 17 lbs (40%)
Head: 17.5 (70%)

Here's what he's doing now:

slept through the night at about 4 months
rolling front to back, back to front
pushes up on his arms
pushes himself backwards on his tummy
laughs & is super ticklish on his ribs and shoulders
still no teeth
started solids @ 4-1/2 months (my earliest eater)
takes a sippy cup of formula (between 4-6 oz/day)
eats 2 jars of baby food/day (stage 2) - the boy can eat!
still nursing every 4 hours (during the day)
loves to cuddle 
adores his Daddy & brothers and sister
babbles really loudly...loves the sound of his own voice :)

We love you Bode. Please don't grow up too fast!
