Everett at 6 months

One half of an entire year, can you believe that?

Look at those big feet!
 I tried to get a smile, but he wasn't in the mood :)
I tried for photo shoot #2, hoping for a smile. Nope.
This month he officially moved out of his bassinet to the crib and has been sleeping in his crib for a few weeks now. His sleep was going great, until the past week when he started waking up almost every hour throughout the night! We would put his pacifier back in and he would go right back to sleep, but it was still exhausting to get out of bed and go do that all night. He also started eating once in the middle of the night again, so we figure it was a growth spurt/sleep regression. The past couple of nights have been much better and even his daytime naps have been significantly longer so hopefully we are past it (at least until the next thing!). He has gotten much better about putting himself to sleep when we first lay him down for a nap or for nighttime. He doesn't usually cry anymore, and just falls asleep. However, when he wakes up anytime after that he has a hard time going back to sleep on his own. Hopefully that will start to get better soon. Baby steps, right?

Last week we started introducing solid foods and he loves it! So far he has had oatmeal, peas, and carrots. I've been feeding him about twice a day and most of the time he eats way more than I expect him to! I will have a little bowl ready, thinking that he will eat about half of it and then when it is all gone, he starts banging his hands on the high chair as if to demand more! He is my cute little piggy :)

Oh it kills me, seriously. I should be there for all of this!! He is SO SO cute. Really, it's not just you because you're his mom, he really is that cute. And I love the brown hair, and so much of it! He looks so much like James to me but then the hair is so different! Love it!
