1/2 A Year Old

Klayton you are 6 months old!

*Wear size 2 diapers
*Wear 3-6 month clothing, sometimes 6-9 month, 3 month and you actually fit into a pair of 0-3 month pants the other day!
*On occasion you are starting to reach out when you want to be held!
*With help you can sit up and then you hold yourself up just fine!
*We have introduced single grain oatmeal and rice. You don’t seem crazy about the rice cereal and you take the oatmeal cereal just fine as long as it has a teeny bit of applesauce in it!
*You say hi or hey….
*Your 2 bottom teeth have poked through, just waiting for them to finish popping completely through.
*You love bath time and have discovered the art of splashing!
*You hate tummy time and will roll from tummy to back just to avoid it!
*You love your bouncy seat.
*You love to touch things and feel the different textures!
*Toys, you have discovered that they are fun to play with!

This Month:
*You attended Aunt Kayla's wedding, April 16th!
*You no longer sleep in the same room as mommy and daddy. The only reason you have done it for this long was because of our travels.
*You had your first friend over to play!

(This month I am posting a shortened version of my letter to Klayton, I am writing him a private letter as well. )

Dear Klayton,
6 months? It doesn’t seem possible and I know in 6 more months I will be once again saying that!
Everyday, I am overwhelmed with the realization that you are mine…my baby that God has lent to me! Does this feeling ever go away or do I just get used to it? Because I don’t know if I could ever get used to it and I don’t know if I really want to be used to it because I enjoy these moments.
I miss those days where you were light as a feather in your carseat and I could fit you into your monkey pajamas; but at the same I am loving these days where I can watch the new discoveries you make and the days where I can watch you grow and begin to form your ever changing personality.
God is so good!
Love You,
