6 Months

Max, you are SIX MONTHS old! Half a year...crazy! You are so fun right now, and it seems like you are learning something new every day. Just yesterday I left the room to get the laundry, and when I came back you were almost in the kitchen. Gotta start working on all that baby proofing the cabinets! You are such a joy to be around, and you are such a happy baby...except when you want to go to out! I love coming to get you out of bed every morning and seeing your little head poke up over the side of the crib, and I love waiting to see what you'll do next!

Here are a few things about you this month:

-You weigh 18 lbs 13 oz (70th percentile)
-You are 26. 5 inches long (50th percentile)
-You are loving solid foods. You eat twice a day, and you'll pretty much eat anything. Even if you make terrible faces, you just keep coming back for more.
-You love playing on the floor.
-Sophie the giraffe is your nemesis. You have a love hate relationship.
-We got you a door bouncer, and it's the best decision we ever made. You LOVE it.
-You stick out your tongue and laugh every time you see your dad. If he's in the room, it's hard to get you to concentrate on anything. Even your bottle!
-You are taking a great morning nap, but afternoon naps have been rough the past few weeks. I'm not sure what's going on there, but we're lucky if you stay asleep 30 minutes.
-No teeth yet.
-You sleep about 11 hours a night. We had a rough couple of days when you thought 5:30 was rise and shine time, but you seem to be getting over it. Knock on wood.
-You went to the park for the first time, and you LOVE the swing. Too bad we don't have any trees, or we would get you one here.
-When you see another baby in the church nursery get a bottle it does not go over well. They just have to go ahead and feed you even if it's not time because you think that's your bottle, and that baby has no business eating if you aren't!
-You like to run errands and be in the car. At least I think you haven't told me that.
-You like people, and you like to smile.
-And you are super least we think so!

Oh my, seriously the cutest thing ever!! How are you going to ever get on to that sweet face? I'm so smitten with Shane that I'm afraid he's just going to be a booger to deal with when he's older...oh well, they're only this little once:)
