Six months


Aiden is already 6 months old! Can you believe it? I can't. It's gone by so fast and he is getting so big. I'm in love with his photos for this month. You can totally see his little personality in these photos. I had a hard time choosing which ones to include in this post. So many good ones. He is just too darn cute, but maybe I'm biased :)

At 6 months, he:

  • is huge. We'll find out Thursday his official stats, but everyone's guessing 20 pounds.
  • has started eating solid foods. We started with bananas on New Year's day (about a week before his 6 month birthday). He's also had sweet potatoes and butternut squash. Tomorrow we try avocado.
  • is taking fewer ounces from a bottle while Mommy is at work, but still nurses every few hours when I'm home.
  • is drinking water from a cup. I got him a couple sippy cups, but he'd rather just drink from my glass.

  • is pretty into standing up and wants desperately to pull up on things...he's not quite there, but pretty close.
  • sits up like a big boy.
  • is working on crawling, but hasn't quite coordinated his arms and legs.
  • has 2 teeth and is working on a third
  • is still sleeping in our room and/or in bed with me and wakes up once or twice during the night.

  • likes to play rough and be tickled.
  • still thinks peek a boo is pretty great.
  • is loving more active toys and is into banging on things.
  • still loves his blankets and stuffed animals.

  • had his first real illness, a cold that lasted for almost two weeks :(
  • loves splashing in the bathtub
  • likes hanging outside
  • is still such a cuddler
  • is quite the entertainer and kind of a ham, as evidenced by the next few pictures



  • is the best thing ever.
