6 Months

Cayden turned 6 months on Saturday! How is my child half a year old??? Every month I can't believe he's older. The time just keeps flying by. Every age is my favorite. I love watching him interact with us. He loves watching his sister play. He has the most precious belly laugh and is so ticklish.

He's in size 3-6 clothes but they are starting to get a little tight so we might be changing over the closet soon. (Have you noticed that some brands like Old Navy and Circo run small but better brands like Gap and Gymboree seem to run bigger?)

He plays in the jumperoo at the sitter's house and she says that if he has his socks off (so his stocking feet don't slide on the hard wood) he'll jump and he really gets the hang of it. We've gotten the exersaucer out and he likes to sit in it but it doesn't seem to really stand or put much weight on his legs while he's in it. He also doesn't try to stand on our laps when we hold him. He'd rather curl his little legs up and cuddle. I'm sure the standing will come soon enough. He can shimmy himself off of his little play mat. He can roll over but doesn't do it often. He gets almost rolled over (except for one arm) all the time, but he doesn't do a full roll over much. He's honestly content where he's sitting/laying so I think he might take longer to move.  He loves his small Sophie teether and his lovies and some other small rattles. He's got quite a grip.

I think he's teething for how much he's chewing and drooling all over everything. Since he was 8 weeks old he has slept through the night every single night (the only exception is when we have been traveling and he hasn't been in his own bed).  For the past week he has woken up between 4 and 4:30 every single night. I don't feed him because I don't want him to get used to eating during the night. I don't even get him out of his crib. I just put a paci in his mouth (which he doesn't even use the rest of the night) and he goes right back to sleep. It makes me wonder if it's his teeth. The only times Adalyn woke up during the night as an infant was when she was cutting teeth. I guess we will find out soon enough!

We have another week and a half before Cayden's 6 month appointment so I don't have any stats yet, but I do have some adorable pictures! (I threw in some old pictures too. It's crazy to see how much he has grown!)

As soon as Adalyn saw me carry the camera up to Cayden's room, she got Cayden's pillow out and put it in the middle of the carpet and then laid down to get a picture with him. She knows the drill!

Amazing how much they have both grown in 6 months!

I love seeing how much Adalyn loves her brother. She loves hugging and kissing him and comforting him if he's crying. It will be awesome to see them grow up together. So sweet.
 This picture makes me laugh.

I can't believe they are all turning .5 year old! Where is the time going? Mine is drooling all over everything too and I'm still wicked jealous of his sleeping habits. I take comfort in knowing that Janine is still enduring the once a night wake up with me :). Love all the pictures - especially the ones with big sister. Miss y'all.
