Luke: 6 months old

Sunday, we celebrated Luke's half-birthday by staying home from church because all of us (except him) had a horrible allergy attack. Oh Tennessee, why do you do this to me every Spring and every Fall?

But, back to this cutie-pie ... I cannot believe he is 6 months old. Where has the time gone?

So what is going on this month?

-Luke is all about grabbing things ... any toy within reach, earrings, necklaces, hair. And once he gets it in his sweet little hands, it is going straight in his mouth.

-He is wearing 6-9 months clothing and size 3 diapers.

-He is eating 6 ounces of formula every 3-4 hours, a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast and a fruit or veggie (maybe mixed with oatmeal) for dinner.

-He is sleeping from 7:30 p.m. to 7:30 a.m. (That's 12 hours y'all!)

-He does not like bananas at all. And who can blame him? Baby food bananas are pretty gross.

-He is rolling all over the place (both directions).

-No teeth yet, but I expect one to pop thru any day now.

-He recognizes his name.

-He smiles when he sees a familiar face.

-He is almost sitting up unassisted.

-He is started to put his knees underneath him in the crawling position. Crawling will definitely change life as we know it!

-Favorite toy is definitely the jumper (the kind that hangs in a doorway). He will play in that thing for a long time. At least he is getting good exercise.

Some of my favorite photos of the month.

Sweet smile!

Sitting up ...

... then falling over. Are you trying to crawl??

Look at those thighs! Keep on jumping baby!

Loving the jumper.

Hanging out with the big kids.

Open mouth, insert toy. That's my mantra.

Even better ... open mouth, insert foot.
