6 Months Old
Nicholas was 6 months old this past Thursday. Time goes by so quickly, is this how fast time will pass for the rest of our lives? I finally realized I had an older baby today when we took Nicholas to our local swim beach, to me he was still a newborn. You can see him in the picture above, he was sitting up and playing like a big boy with out the help of me or Chris! These months have been the best, most rewarding and challenging, absolutely fantastic 6 months of our lives! Just when you think you could not love this little person any more than you already do, each day passes and you realize your love grows with him. Our lives have changed more than we could have ever thought possible, but now we cannot imagine our lives without Nicholas; he is the sunshine of our lives!
Nicholas was 16 lbs. 1 oz. and 26 3/4 in. at his 6 month appointment. He is 25% in weight and 75% in height. That basically means he is tall and skinny (hmmm...who does that sound like?) Let's see, what else does 6 months bring? Well, he has been sleeping through the night for the past 3 weeks, roughly 7pm - 6:30am. Yay to Mom and Dad! He is still scootching like crazy, he actually makes it all the way from our living room to the kitchen in a matter of a minute. He drools like a St. Bernard, but still no teeth. Much more I hope you all get to see soon. Each day brings new excitement!
Nicholas and Dad have more than just their good looks in common!
Here is Nicholas proud of himself after making it into the kitchen on his own. Philly's romper courtesy of Aunt Re. And oh yes, what a surprise, he's wearing his drool.
Nicholas is now able to sit in the turtle rocker Pop-pop made for him!
