Wait. Hold the phone. Is that title right?! Has it really been six months?! I cannot believe my little boy is already halfway to one year old. Someone slow down time!

Green Beans, Apples, and Pears, Oh My!
I really need to get better about feeding Ethan solid foods more often, but right now we are getting in one feeding around lunch time every day. Next week I'll move up to two feedings of solids every day, and we'll go from there. So far, carrots and apples seem to be the biggest hits, and pears, green beans, bananas, and sweet potatoes all went over well. E likes to feed himself, so I'll put some food on his spoon and he'll maneuver it into his mouth all by himself. Not all of the food ends up in his mouth, but he really does an awesome job and has so much fun. :)
At the beginning of the month I was thinking that nothing much had changed from five to six months, and then, just in the past week and half, holy moly did we hit some new milestones.
We are sitting now (even though it is like E's least fave thing!).
Oh, and a little something else ... we can crawl now!!
Some things that have stayed the same from last month to this month are:
- Sleeping through the night/bedtime
- Napping/nap schedule
- Amount of formula
- Loving tummy time (he would stay all day on his belly if he could)
- Dragon pacifier
- Cuteness (of course)
And finally, finally, Ethan loves the Baby Bjorn. Oh, to say using it makes erranding easier is an understatement! He likes to hold the handles of the cart while I push it around, and helps hold things while we shop. Super fun, and he loves to be able to see everything that is going on around him.
Ethan continues to stay social and busy. He loves going to gym class and seeing his baby friends, and most times will try to hold at least one baby's hand before it is time to go. Mike and I went out on a date, and E got to stay with Ms. Laura for a few hours, his very first babysitter!! He completely adores her and they had a blast playing and hanging out. We've also set up a few playdates, which are always a good time. This month was awesome for larger social outings, too, and we had no freak outs or meltdowns at parties. Whoo Hoo!

What a busy, fun, amazing month it has been. While I wish I could
slow down time to make E's first year last forever, I also can't wait to see what each new month will bring. :)
