Oliver is 6 months!

I cannot believe I'm sitting here typing about how my baby is half a year old today.  I can remember very vividly daddy driving me to the hospital at about 9:15 a.m. and laughing at him the entire way because he had only shaved half of his face.  Seriously, how can someone have half a mustache?  Just goes to show how excited he was, I guess.

How have you gone from this....

To this??

You have almost 2 teeth (on the bottom) now!  We have been waiting not so patiently for them to finally rear their ugly heads since you have been kind of a bear because of them.  I think just a few more weeks and they will be all the way out.

You can roll from back to front and front to back, although you're not all that interested in doing that very often.  Thank goodness you will spend more time during tummy time lately.  I hated listening to you scream bloody murder when we'd make you do it a few months ago.

You love every type of food.  Honestly, I haven't fed you anything yet that you didn't like.  I think your personal favorites are carrots, sweet potatoes and bananas.  You got to try pizza crust last weekend and you loved it as well!

At your checkup a few weeks ago you weighed 22.4 pounds so I guess we will find out your current weight when we go in on Monday afternoon. 

We are buying you size 4 diapers for the first time this weekend and I'm a little sad by this.  I can tell you're starting to slim down in some areas since you're so busy all the time but size 4 seems like such a big boy. 

You usually sleep from about 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., depending on how many mini naps you've gotten throughout the day.  We are so lucky that you're such a good sleeper!

Oliver, please know that you are without a doubt the light of my soul and I feel like I had no idea what it meant to be alive and love until I saw your smiling face.  You are truly a blessing and I hope you always know how much we love you.  I cannot imagine my life without you now.  I had a very difficult time dropping you at daycare this morning because you kept smiling and laughing at me.

I love you a bushel and a peck my sweet boy. 


  1. Oliver.....I can't believe today is your 6 month birthday!!! You are an amazing little guy and I'm so happy to be your aunt JCC. I love you to the moon and back!!!

  2. Can you believe our babies are 6 months old? In my opinion the next 6 months are even better- they just get more fun and interactive.

    I am so jealous that Oliver is such a good sleeper!
