6 Great Months

April 1, 2009 at 11:56 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 10 Comments


I cannot believe I am writing that he is already 6 months old. It really and truly goes by so fast. We have adored the last 6 months of our lives. It has been so fun. A friend asked me the other day about what our future plans were for our next child and honestly we haven’t really thought about it. We have LOVED this time with him. He is getting soo big and so funny. I think he is really stealing his daddy’s heart 🙂 It has been so beautiful to watch him adore his daddy. They have a unique relationship that August has with no one else. It is so sweet to watch his chubby cheeks smile as his eyes watch Steven everywhere he goes. There have been moments between the 3 of us that I have felt stood still. They are priceless. He is such a joy filled child and I am truly broken and humbled that God placed him into our arms! Here are some updates on our little guy!

We just went in for our 6 month check up! Our little man has been doing some growing!! In 2 months he has grown 2 inches in length (25 in) and gained 2 lbs (18lbs)!! He feels like 25 pounds!!

He has one big tooth on the bottom that has popped up and another on the way. Oh my goodness teething has not been fun. I know we have just begun 🙂 We have Tyl and homeopathic teething tablets on hand at all times!! Poor guy.

We are eating solids now. I am trying to get us up to breakfast, lunch and dinner. He has done great! He likes: peas, squash, bananas (does anybody else have to sing that Gwen Stephani song in order to spell bananas?? haha) sweet potatoes, carrots and we are about to start apple sauce!

He got his first haircut on Monday 😦 His poor hair was getting out of control. We love his hair long but half of is was curly and half was straight. It was strange. Steven used his clippers and we used the longest guard he had and trimmed it down. The texture is totally different (it feels like a little boys hair and not so soft like babies hair) and there are beautiful little curls that cover his sweet head. This is his new haircut- you can see how much shorter it is in the back!


The other night we went to hear Steven play with the band that he travels with. It was so sweet how attentive August was. He was so calm and looked straight at the stage the whole time. I am crossing my fingers that he will love music like his daddy!!

He is trying desperately to crawl. He can’t quite figure out what to do with his stomach. He looks like a beached whale! His poor stomach stays on the floor and he is desperately swinging all limbs to try and get somewhere! He can turn from side to side and is making some good movements. Its only a matter of time!

Whenever I don’t have a toy on me I just take off his socks and he is soo excited to play with his feet!!



I love this sweet smile


Look at those big baby blues!!! I am so in love!

    P.S. If you need any more teething help, my son really likes these homeopathic teething drops from target. They have Pooh on the front and come in a dropper bottle… that’s all I know. But they are really great 🙂
