Happy 6 months!
Happy 6 months to my sweet baby boy Scout!
Life seems to finally be *somewhat* under control... or as much as possible with three young-ins. We are loving the time we spend together as a family and really enjoying seeing all three of the kids interact. Faith Clare is constantly up in Scout's face, rubbing on his cheeks, squishing them together and saying "hi baybeee". He usually likes it and doesn't make much of a fuss when this happens... Deacon LOVES making him laugh and has recently been trying to get him to talk saying "ba, ba, ba, ba", "ma, ma, ma, ma". It is sweet to see him feel so accomplished when Scout reacts to him and does what he says :) Scout is definitely proud of himself when he talks!
Dear baby Scout, at 6 months the joy that you have brought into our lives is immeasurable. You are such a fun, silly, active, determined little boy. You are an easy smile which makes everyone that sees you react in kind. You love to squeal, yell and move all around. You took the prize (from Maddox) for being the most active child in my womb and you are holding strong and proving you know just who you are. You are a very proficient roller, going front to back and back to front with ease. You have decided that side-sleeping is usually best, but we'll often find you flat on your tummy, tiny blue blankey within reach. You still take your soothie pacifier, but as of late it has become more of a chew toy and we are waiting for that first tooth to appear sometime soon.
If it were up to you, you would be held and carried all the time... because it gives you a pretty good vantage point for all the action and you are... well, super nosy. You still aren't sitting totally unassisted, but we think that it's because you are too much of a mover :) You definitely have the strength, but balance doesn't seem to be your thing quite yet since you are trying to grab anything in reach. You still love the excersaucer, have really started jumping around in the jumperoo, and adore being outside, especially in the swing.
You can sleep through the night but it hasn't been consistent yet which officially makes you the latest one to reach this milestone... the one mommy is waiting for with fingers crossed! Our sweet, sacred time together ended a little over a week ago and although we have encountered a few issues with formula, I think we have it figured out. You weighed 15lbs 12oz at your appointment this week so you are right in the middle of the pack, in our family as well as nationally.
You are a precious boy that definitely adds more spice to our family... and spice we can't imagine our lives without. We love you to infinity and beyond Scout, and we can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for your life!
