6 months already?

How do they go from this.....
....to this so quickly?!

I cannot believe my little Levi is already 6 months old! It's so true that it goes even faster second time around! This baby is my little angel...I am so in love with him! He has such a happy laid back personality and just goes with the flow. He giggles so easily and gives everyone that he sees the biggest cutest grin! (See above)

He tried rice cereal for the first time a few days ago and didn't super love it, but I think he'll get used to it and love it soon. Levi is rolling both ways now and really gets around pretty good. He absolutely loves his little jumper and likes to spend time in there bouncing away and laughing! He loves Camryn, she can get him to smile and laugh so good! He discovered his feet this month so he's always grabbing them when he's on his back...but can't quite get his feet in his mouth because of his CHUBBY legs! He is still such a chunkster weighing in at 17.75 lbs, which is surprisingly only the 55th %! He's 27 inches which puts him around 75th for height. He's already in 9 month clothes and size 3 diapers (and has been for quite some time!)

He was a pretty good sleeper up until about a month ago. He was going from around 9 to 4 or 5, then eating and going back to sleep for a few hours, but lately he's waking up at 2 and 6...ugh! I thought we were past that! I don't know if he's hungrier or got out of the habit when we were out of town, but I need to get him back on a good schedule so if you have any good baby sleep tips or books, please let me know!

We love this boy so much! He has brought so much happiness into our little family, and we're so grateful he's a part of it.

what a cutie!! as for the sleep, grace did the same thing at the same age. the pediatrician said that she had gotten in to a bad habit of waking and eating (when she didn't need to) and that if i wanted to get back on the old schedule, to let her cry. it is so sad, but it really only takes 1 or 2 nights and they get back on schedule. good luck!

One word: "Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child" - more than a rigid technique, it gives you information about sleep habits at different ages. I read this when Blair was 4-5 months and it was incredible for me. You can skip to the age your baby fits into and go from there. I loved it.

He's such a cutie!

He is SO cute! I can't believe he's already 6 months. Lunch was fun yesterday, we need to do it more often and maybe next time without the kiddos so we can talk more AND longer! We need to celebrate YOUR bday this time...maybe we could all go for facials or something. Eventhough you just had one yesterday. I am SO jealous!:)

Oh he is CUTE!

I've been doing "Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child," too, and it has been great but I must say that Monroe also did that same thing about 6 months... he'll be back to sleeping through the night before you know it!
