My boy is somehow six months old today! I constantly look back in his shared photo drive and just fawn over each picture from delivery up until now. I say it all the time, but it’s true: how did we get here? How is it that time has appeared to speed up? There must be truth to everyone telling me that it goes fast because it really does. This last month Greyson’s little personality just continues to shine each and my husband always comments about the little changes he seen in him just within a day.
Date: September 10, 2016
Celebrated: my dedication at church! I loved getting on stage and hamming it up for the crowd. Also, Mommy and Daddy had their first date nights out without me while I stayed with my friends/grandparents Miss Kathleen and Dave-O. It was my first time being away from them and I survived!
Eats: kale, carrots, butternut squash, spinach, fig & bananas, and pretty much every vegetable in-between. I love food and never turn down an opportunity to eat and try and feed myself.
Enjoys: books and reading so much! I have my all-time favorite book, but I’m starting to notice my other books too. I love my new wooden puzzle toy because I get to munch on them and they come in fun colors. I also LOVE it when Mommy startles me! I just giggle so much when she hides and pops out to scare me! I also like to move around a lot more during diaper changes and love trying to tug on my clothes to take them off!
Dislikes: not being engaged with something. I have so many more preferences now and you try to get me to do something I don’t feel like doing I’m going to throw a fit! I’m also getting used to strangers and I still cry when someone I don’t know tries to hold me.
Milestones Met: I’m sitting up on my own! I’m about 99% there, but still learning. I can also grasp, handle, turn pages and all kinds of things with my hands. I love picking things up myself and am learning to transfer things to my other hand. And I love banging anything with my hands…it won’t be long before I get to bang on pots and pans!
Learning: I never really liked to roll around like other babies and decided to just skip that to sitting up. I’m reaching more ahead of me and I like to stand and hold onto tables although I can’t hold myself up. Mommy and Daddy think I might be mobile soon!
Someone doesn’t sit so well for these photos anymore. It’s like wrestling with a wild animal!
