1/2 Birthday!

Gosh, so much has changed in a month! We have a VERY busy baby! It is so rare for him to sit still and I LOVE it! As you can see in his picture, I had to move the sign above him this time. Everytime I tried to tape it to the lamb he would instantly try to grab at it. :)

Connor at 6 months you:

-weigh 17 lbs (39%)
-are 26 1/2 inches long (51%)
-have a head that is 44 cm around (56%)
-have 2 teeth coming in on the bottom!!!!!! They are so cute. I look at them everday, but also kind of tear up. You are growing WAY too fast!
-have started sleeping like this:
and while I think it looks terribly uncomfortable, it is so precious.
-found your toes on your 5 month birthday and became fast friends.

-chose your 1/2 birthday to start sitting up and mastering the army crawl. Now if you see something you want across the room you will slowly make your way towards it. 9 times out of 10 it will be something you aren't supposed to have, which has been a common theme these last few weeks.
-are still an unbelievably happy baby. You love attention and will reward whoever is giving it to you with a smile.
-have really started giving us big belly laughs more. They are like music to our ears!
-started recognizing babies and little kids and love them! You usually try to grab them and will sometimes even talk (or yell!) to them! I took the following picture while he was Your Baby Can Read.

There is a little girl on there that makes him do this every single time she is on the screen.

-give kisses. You will leave my face a slobbery mess afterwards, but I definitely don't mind!
-have gotten much better about your naps. Some days you will take them both without a fight. Some days you play in your crib until you fall asleep. I love those days. If I could hit record on my video monitor I could probably win a million dollars. Your favorite thing is to lift the bumper pad down to monitor your bedroom. I think you just know something is going on outside of your crib that you might miss! Here he is in action:

I also woke up one day last week and checked the monitor to see if you were awake. This is what I found:

Who knows how long he had been like this!
-have started reaching out for me! Sometimes while I am cleaning house I will put you in either your exersaucer or Johnny Jumper. When you want me to get you, you will grab my leg when I walk by. It never works...yeah, right!
-experienced your first UT game.

I think it was your Daddy's proudest moment :)
We have definitely decided you are going to a handful and for that we feel so blessed! (check back with us in a year..ha!) Everyday brings something new and I thank God for allowing me to be this sweet boy's momma!
