6 months!

Dear Sawyer,

You are 6 months old today. Half of a year. WOW! And this has to be one of the most adorable ages. I'm seriously loving it!

You still continue to be the happiest little guy...always smiling. We can just make eye contact with you and you will crack the biggest, cutest grin ever!

You currently weigh around 20 lbs and are around 26 inches long.

You are wearing size 3 diapers. You are wearing mostly 3-6 month clothes and sleepers but you are squeezed in to most of those so it's time for the next size.

You've been eating cereal for about a week now. We started at night and have now moved to twice a day. You love it! You still take two bottles at daycare - (between 6-7 oz.), and nurse 3 other times a day. You eat cereal at daycare in between your bottles and at night around dinner time. You nurse/take a bottle every 4 hours usually.

You love playing in your jumperoo. You love sitting up. You are getting good at this. You are very alert and love taking it all in. You have also become really interested in toys. You have become really vocal and jibber jabber all the time.

Sleeping through the night is back and forth. We've moved up your bedtime because you don't nap that great at daycare...usually about 4 30 minute catnaps. So, you usually go to bed around 8:15-8:30 and sometimes you will sleep till 5:00 or 6:00am. But more times than not you still wake up sometime between 2:00-4:00am. You just nurse and then go right back to sleep so it's not too bad. It can be exhausting but I just try and keep it all in perspective and be thankful for a healthy baby!

You are my buddy! You are the most precious thing in the world to me! And I love you more than I ever even thought I was capable of loving!

Here are some pictures of you at 6 months:

Look how much you've changed in the last 6 months. You just keep getting more and more precious!

So hard to believe that this little guy is already 6 months old! He's changed more than I realized after looking at all 6 months of pictures. He's adorable and I love those little curled up toes! Precious! He also has the sweetest smile. :) Can't wait to see him and you all in a couple of weeks.
