HALF A YEAR OLD?! Since when did I have a baby HALF A YEAR ago? We have such a sweet boy who we love so much. It’s so much fun to see how much he loves Kurt and me.  His little bashful grins, his full on wide open mouth smiles, they way he gets excited when he sees us {he starts breathing really fast and goes, “huh-huh-huh-huh-huh”} all are some of our favorite moments of the day.

At 6 months, Chad:

>> Goes from sitting up to full on lunging face-plant in less than a second

>> Goes “Mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm” after every bite of solid food {for those who follow me on snapchat, you’ve probably seen many videos of me feeding him}

>> Fits in his jumper with just 1 blanket under his feet to make him tall enough

>> Actually jumps in his jumper {like crazy…he takes after his cousins, Dallin & Michael who were jumping champions}

>> Had his first Thanksgiving {spent with his aunts, uncles, and cousins}. He loved the mashed potatoes!

>> Experienced his first snow fall

>> Loved having Babci come visit for a week {I’m seriously obsessed with how much my parents get to see Chad.  It’s such a blessing that he has grandparents that live so close.}

>> Recognizes the voices of Mom, Dad, Dziadziu & Babci

>> Occasionally cries for no reason

>> Chews on everything  he can get his hands on

>> DOES NOT SLEEP THROUGH THE NIGHT. For the last month, Chad wakes up about every 1.5-2 hours during the night.  Kurt and I are always exhausted.

>> Got his first 2 teeth {#1 at 6 months and 2 days old, #2 at 6 months and 4 days old}

>> Has {somewhat noticeable} blonde hair

STATS:

>> Height: 27.5″ (82%)

>> Weight: 18 lbs (57%)

>> Head: 52%

Not being fed fast enough • Being cold • Rolling over • Face plants • Getting put in his car seat • Getting his nose wiped {it’s a traumatic experience for all of us} • Being left alone • Having his toy too far away from him {since he refuses to roll over and he can’t crawl he just gets really  angry} • Teething

Our blue eyed, babbling, happy baby boy is such a joy to be around.  He is the biggest flirt at church and is always giving people bashful smiles.  He fights sleep like crazy and has become a little bit of a cuddler since his teeth started coming in.  I’m taking in ever bit of it because he isn’t usually like that.  He got his 6 month shots today and was such a champ.  He gave the nurse a big gummy grin when the nurse looked at him and said, “You are so brave!” {He loves compliments}  We are such proud parents.

If you follow me on Instagram, there was a short little video clip on there that I posted yesterday.  The video above is the whole thing.  Enjoy!
