I’ve been putting off doing this letter, because I am in denial that my baby is 6 months (he’s 6.5 as I write this) old already!
You have grown so much, you started out as this tiny 6lb 9oz bundle of perfection, and have quickly grown to a 15lb, 6 month old.
We have had over 20+ doctor visits, 2 OR visits (only one was for surgery), 4 teeth (although you only have 2 now), and more rolls than your brother ever had (its adorbs).
Every time I see you I try to picture who you will be. Will you be tall, or short? Red hair or brown (I think it will be red and slightly curly)? Beautiful blue eyes. Handsome like your daddy.
I am always amazed at what you are able to do, your current tricks are being able to roll from your tummy to your back, and from your back to your tummy.
You are thisclose to being able to sit by yourself.
Your favourite things in the world are: your big brother, Daddy, Mommy, Bear, Monkey, and that mesh food soother thing.
You giggle and smile and “talk” at the drop of a hat, making me laugh till I cry.
You like saying the letter “M”. I often hear you saying “mmmmm, mmmmm, mmmmm” it is pretty much the cutest thing you do.
You refuse to eat pureed food, only wanting “nanas” and “doughies” (bananas and avocados, as your big brother calls them) in that mesh soother. Which by the way, is a PAIN to clean.
We have to have you completely weaned off of your bottle by the time we go for your palate surgery, so we introduced you to a sippy cup. You nailed it. First try. You would way rather feed yourself, than let Mommy or Daddy feed you. Except when you’re tired, then you don’t care.
You love the toys on your exersaucer, especially the crazy bird.
You love your jolly jumper, yet we rarely put you in it because your brother thinks that spinning you around is the.best.thing.ever.
Daddy loves your toothy grin, I think it’s precious.
You are a drooling like boy, who can go through bibs faster than you can say bibs.
You adore playing with your brother; you think it’s hilarious when he tries to carry you.
I am so proud of you my sweet baby, thank you for being my little ray of sunshine. I adore you.
