Six months!

Collin is six months old today, and it's pretty amazing to see how much he has changed and grown recently! I can't wait to get his height and weight stats at his appointment next week.

Collin is now a pro sitter - doesn't need a pillow behind him anymore - and he's had all kinds of food! The only ones he dislikes so far are peas and squash. Favorites include bananas, pears, carrots, applesauce and yogurt. He also loves prunes, but we learned the hard way that we must limit that intake (yuck!) :)

He is still the sweetest, easiest baby ever, and he sleeps from 7 p.m. - 6:30 a.m. during the week (because we have to wake him up for school) and he'll often sleep til 8 or 8:30 on the weekends. I am grateful every single day that we have good sleepers. I hear stories from other parents at their school, and I don't know how I'd make it with some of their children!

In addition to sitting, Collin is rolling all over the place, and his legs are working like crazy, trying to figure out how to crawl. I'm in no hurry for this stage, but I can tell he desperately wants to be able to chase Sydney around. They are still the best of friends, and I love seeing them play together. No one can make him laugh like she can!

Collin is wearing 9 month clothes and filling those out quite well. His hair is growing slowly but surely and it's looking lighter everyday. Could I really end up with two blondies?! How unexpected and hilarious that would be.

Life with two has become so much easier now that Collin is out of the infant stage. I am LOVING this age for both of them. Sydney is hilarious and keeps us on our toes, and she's also a huge help with her baby bro.

Happy half birthday to our sweet son!


  1. So cute!!! They seem like super happy, easy-going kids.

  2. They look like best friends! When will Collin be moving up to his next room?

  3. Thank you!

    Jenn - He moves up August 13. I'm glad he's moving to the room right across from Jan so I can still see her every morning :)
