6 months old!

Our baby is 6 months old!! A half of a year has gone by, can you believe it? Thanks for everyone who commented or messaged me for stay at home mom support, I really appreciate it! Sometimes you just have to ask for help/support and that is something that is really hard for me, but I am learning that as a parent you just have to! A lot of your suggestions I've already been implementing, so I am pretty sure the answer is just time and I think I am okay with that :) I realized the other day that when I had my first full time job I remember it was really hard to go to work every single day and I would think, "This is so monotonous, do I have to do this for the rest of my life? I only get a few weeks of vacation a year, etc...." After awhile, I completely forgot that I ever felt that way and that gives me hope that the same thing will happen with staying at home!

Anyway, James is growing and growing!!! Here are the pictures I took yesterday:

He is finally growing some hair and some chunk! Look at those juicy thighs!! A few days ago we gave him his first taste of rice cereal and he did pretty well. I don't think he minds the taste of it, but he was a little unsure of what exactly he was supposed to do with it :)

The next day, I thickened it up a little more and he did much better with it. He even started opening his mouth for more!

Things he likes at 6 months old: New sounds, lights, things to look at, jumping in his jumperoo, being held and carried, running errands with mommy, he LOVES Anthony and always gives him a big grin when he comes in the room, grabbing at faces and things he finds interesting, pulling and grabbing hair, putting anything and everything into his mouth, playing in the bath, sitting in our laps, having someone blow air in his face, and rolling over on the floor.

Things he hates at 6 months old: taking naps, being alone in a room, and being on his tummy for too long

He is getting so big!! I love his new hair:) I have to tell you, I just watched the video with my little miss and she looked up at me after a little bit with this HUGE grin and then looked back at the video and started saying 'hi', and then I could swear she said 'hi, baby'! So cute! I think the baby thing was just a coincidence, but still, adorable! Oh I wish we lived closer so they could be friends!
