big boy!

Twenty six weeks. 1/2 a year. 182 days. 6 MONTHS old today!
I honestly cannot believe how fast the time has flown. I know it sounds cliche, but truly, this has been a quick 6 months.

Little Edward has two bottom teeth.
We are still breastfeeding and he refuses to take a bottle.
He loves solid foods and is starting to eat two "meals" a day now.
Rolls both ways, and thank goodness, because he is a much better self-soother.
"Rakes" with his hands to grab at objects.
Just this week, he really started to recognize me and smile when I come back in the room.
Laughs selectively and usually only at obnoxious high-pitched noises.
I live for that laugh.
Bath time is amazing. He loves it because he gets both parents full attention.
He can sit up assisted and unassisted for a minute or so.
He will get on all fours and rock back and forth.
Sleeps on his tummy.
Feet to the mouth just last night.
Drools. Spits up after almost every meal.
Thankfully, he enjoys the car and will be silent or sleep.
He has started reaching for everything in my hands and gets very jealous if I eat in front of him.
3-6 month clothes.
Size 3 diaper.
Loves to look and smile at wall clocks.
His favorite toy is the jumparoo at his grandparent's house.
Has choked one time already. So thankful I am a nurse.
We are working on our naps.
He lays his head on my shoulder when I sing our "nap song."
I put him down for naps at 9,12,3-ish and he will sleep for 30 minutes.
Enjoys long walks around camp with the dogs.
Sleeps so much better at night now!
He will sleep about 10 hours, eat, and sleep 3 more hours!
Altogether from 630pm to 730am.
And he loves to be around people. He gets the people-watching gene from me.

He is the sweetest thing in the world and I can't imagine this life without him.
