Six Months Old!

6 month photos by Aunty Amy Jo of Lotta Love Photo

I have read it on so many "mommy" blogs.

...Time flies...

I didn't necessarily believe it until I woke up on October 21st...

and realized that Brooks is six months old.

Half a year.
Soon he will be a year.

And then, he will be heading off to play baseball in college (Go Cougs!).

Ok, I got a little ahead of myself there, but that is what it feels like.

The other day, I snuck over to Paradise bakery for a yummy treat,
and I saw two moms walking with their late teenage boys. One of the boys reached over and gave his momma a playful noogy. I laughed to myself.

It made me fast forward to Amy Jo and I walking around with Tait and Brooks.

Stand still, time! I demand it!

Ok, enough of that.

Brooks is 6 months old...

At his appointment yesterday, we learned that his head is 90th percentile (that explains 12 hours of labor...and 3 HOURS of pushing), he is 80th percentile for length, and 60th percentile for weight... right on schedule in his development

...and quite a little stud, if you ask his totally unbiased momma...

I don't exaggerate when I tell you, he is one of the happiest babies I have ever been around.

He cracks up when we play peak a boo, he smiles constantly, and he loves loves loves nuggin' with his momma and daddio.

What a joy. Pure joy.

My cup runneth over.

You aren't biased at all! Come on girly! That is one cute baby! And yes, time does fly. Isn't it sad it just can't slow down a tad bit? It just doesn't seem right. Love each day. Even the hard ones. That's what I tell myself daily. :) Love you friend!

Yes, it does go too fast-wait till #2... it goes even faster! And I hear ya sista--both my boys were in the 90th percentile for head circumference at birth and beyond! And just when I thought Coleson "paved the way" here came Tate with the same size head but broader shoulders and a pound and half more 'beef'. Youch. :) anyway! Neat about the doula stuff and congrats on 6 months!
