Eli is 6 months!

Eli is 6 months - half a year old!!!

What in the world?? Where is time going??

Is it possible for every month to be my favorite? I always think "OH! THIS is my favorite month" and then the very next month proves me wrong"
Eli you were between size 2 and 3 diapers this month. Really you should fully be in a size 3 but I've been trying to use the rest of the 2's.

You can wear some 3-6 months clothes and also 6-9 months. I have some 6-12 month clothes I'm ready for you to wear but they are still too big.
You are 17.9 lbs and inches long. You had your 6 month appointment this month and got your 6 month shots.

You are just the happiest, happiest baby ever. I even asked the dr if it was ok that you hardly ever cry and only laugh and giggle and smile. He assured me that we were just very lucky to get such a good baby.

You are a scooting machine! You still won't sit up on your own but you will scoot all the way across the floor on your belly and elbows.
You are such a talker. You love to talk to your dad and me and we love to listen to you. In the morning you have start blabbering VERY loudly while we get you ready for the day. It makes us laugh a lot.

You suck your thumb, but usually only if you are sleepy.

When you go to sleep you like to have something to hang onto. Whether it be a little blanket, burp cloth or a pacifier (while you suck your thumb) you want something to hang onto.

You are very content to play in the floor, or in your exersaucer. But when you are done YOU ARE DONE and you want picked up immediately.

You have started having separation anxiety from mom. Not a lot, and not when you are dropped off at your babysitter's house 3 days a week (thank goodness) but sometimes if I leave the and you are alone you will fuss until I come back. You also do this if other people are holding you and I walk out you semi-cry/fuss for mom.

You are a good little sleeper. You take good naps during the day and you sleep great at night.

You usually go to bed around 7:30 or 8:00 and wake up around 7:00.You love to eat. You take a 6 oz bottle 4 times a day and have solid food 3 times a day. You act indiferent about all food. You don't overly like or dislike anything.

When you get really worked up when crying you say "mamamamamama" it has no correlation to me whatsoever but I still like the sounds of it! :-)

Everything you get your hands on goes straight to your mouth. We have to really watch you.

These past 6 months have flown by! You have brought so much joy and love to our lives, we are so thankful for what you have brought to our family!
