Six Months Old!

My baby boy is 6 months old! It's crazy to me that just 6 short months ago, we were welcoming Mason into this world, and that in just 6 more short months, we will be celebrating his 1 year birthday. He has developed and changed so much!

Mason, 24 hours old:

Mason, 6 months old:

I'm not sure of an exact weight yet (we missed his 6 month check up last week because of car troubles) but it's close to 20 lbs. and length is close to 30 inches. He babbles and says "da da," and is a very happy baby. He eats about 8 ounces at a time, and has tried some solids. His favorites are pears, and apple and sweet potato yo baby yogurt. He just tried peas, and is getting used to those as well. He also has tried real banana in his mesh feeder and seemed to really enjoy that too. Last night, hubs tried sitting him up, and he can balance for a few minutes at a time sitting up. He started creeping occasionally a few weeks ago, but has gotten incredibly better at it these last couple of days. He is ALL over the place and into everything he can get his hands on! And when you take something away that he isn't supposed to have, he has quite the little 6 month old temper tantrum! But, he can be easily distracted and is happy again in no time. :-) He has 4 teeth! He takes good naps for he during the day, and night time sleep is okay. Not terrible, but could be better. I'll take what I can get though at this point! He loves to play and jump in his jumperoo, loves being outside, and loves interacting with his brother and sister or anybody, for that matter. It doesn't take much to get a big, drooly smile out of him. ♥

Happy 6 month birthday, Monkey! ♥ ♥

Awwh. What a beautiful baby boy! Happy half birthday Mason!
He's gotten so big. I can't believe that he's already up to almost 20 lbs and can say Da-da! DS is working on that.
