Before I had kids a friend told me just make it to six months and it all goes up from there. Now that I’ve had two kids this is so true. Everything starts to get really fun from six months on.
[Note, my grammar in the last few posts is atrocious. I am just going to write these in the present tense. Just know that I know that you know that I know he is not actually six months.]
The end of your fifth month and into your sixth month was defined by your pursuit of crawling.
All day, every day you try to crawl.
Your sixth month kicked off celebrating your brother’s second birthday! Woohoo! Who doesn’t like a good party hat?
I comment on it every month but you are STRONG. You were born big just like your brother but have not gained weight as quickly. I think your brother was probably just as strong but you have less weight to hold up and pull! Also your legs aren’t too fat to fit in the bumbo seat like his were.
Speaking of your brother, could you two be any cuter? I have a much older brother and then two sisters closer to my age. I never saw the “brother” thing until now, and it’s the best.
Looking back at these pictures and remembering the amazing weather has me excited for next summer and fall when you are walking. We go outside every single day, to the park or just for a walk in the stroller. Sometimes you get fussy if we are too close to bedtime and Grant will lean onto your side of the stroller to cheer you up.
The most exciting thing we did was go apple picking. We have a fun tradition of going with the same-ish group of friends every September. It’s a blast to see how many babies get added every year!
You are our sweet, easy going, determined little buddy. We love you so much!
At your six month appointment you were 17 lbs and 12 oz and 28 inches long. Long and lean says the doctor!
