my baby is 6 months already!

dear connor,

i say this every month but i cannot believe how fast you are growing up! you continue to be a VERY happy babby and your giggles you've even started to give me kisses! you lean real close to my face with your mouth open--i love it! here are some other fun things about you this month:

~your stats at 6 months: 14 pounds 14 ounces (10-25%) and 26.5 inches long (75%)
~you are wearing size 3 diapers and you are in 6-9 month clothes
~you are becoming quite squirmy during diaper changes, always trying to grab something!
~you like to play on the floor and you roll over, but you'll stay put entertaining yourself and playing with your toys for a while.
~every time i put you down for a nap, you look up at me with the SADDEST face as i walk out the door. it's SO HARD for me to leave you, but i know once i shut the door in just a few seconds you'll stop crying, shove your thumb in your mouth and out you go!
~you can sit up for a few seconds by yourself!
~you no longer like to take naps when we are out and about, but sometimes if you are REALLY tired you will fall asleep for a brief cat nap, but you hate to miss out on things!
~you are getting your first tooth (bottom right) and it's been bothering you a bit, but now that it's just breaking through you are doing much better
~during nap time, you like to play and talk to yourself in your crib, you've even figured out how to start you mobiles
~mommy's been REALLY lazy in the mornings these days because it is so dark and so cold out that i hate getting out of bed, so i end up bringing you in bed with us to feed you--i love spending time with you all snuggled up under the covers!
~you like to "talk" by babbling and blowing bubbles--you like to do this as the most perfect times, like during prayer time at church and MOPS ha!
~today we started solids! you didn't really know what to make of it and you made some funny faces which we caught on video. you liked playing with the spoon the best!
~you tolerate mommy as she's been taking a MILLION pictures of you lately--most of the time you like to smile at the camera!

i love you my sweet little boy!
