Happy 6 months!

Happy 6 months Bentley!

[6 months was officially on 11.27, better late than never.]

You weigh 21 lb 6 oz.

You are 27" in length.

Your noggin' is 17" round..

You wear size 3 diapers & size 6 or 9 month clothing.

You are such a good eater!
You drink 6 oz bottles & eat a fruit or veggie at lunch & dinner.
Your favorite thing to eat is bananas & least favorite is green beans.
Proof below.

You are sleeping good! clockwork {knock on wood} you go to bed at 8:00, up at 3:30 {although you are doing this less & less, YAY!} for a small 2 oz bottle & diaper change, then up again around 7.
Sometimes I'll scoop you up in the morning & put you in bed with me for some extra zzz's.
This snuggle time is one of my favorite things in the world :)

You love going on walks.
We have tried taking advantage of all this unseasonally warm weather mother nature has provided lately!

You can now sit up by yourself & love to be Mr. Independent.

You love to chew on your fingers, preferably both thumbs thumbkins at the same time.

Your favorite toys are your playmat, monkey bouncer, exersaucer & Sophie.
You are in the phase where anything that is not nailed, bolted, or screwed down is put directly into your mouth.

You are on the cusp of rolling & are showing interest in crawling.
Anytime we do tummy time you belly scoot around, it's hilarious!

Your other trick at the moment is rocking from side to side.
*thx GiGi for teaching this wild behavior ;)

November was a hard month for you between teething, a cold that lasted two weeks, & a TERRIBLE stomach virus.
Two doctor visits within four days = not a fun time.
We did lots of lovin', cuddlin', & nappin'.

[that lip.
be still my heart.]

Your favorite songs are:
Row Row Row Your Boat
Wheels On The Bus
Itsy Bitsy Spider
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt

You are our bundle of sunshine little BB.
You literally are our everything.
I cannot believe it's been six months since you made your way into this world & right into our hearts.

Happy 6 months baby boy,
we love you. we love you. we love you.

ps-every little boy needs a little blue tree.

This past wknd we got our Christmas tree!

{ Bentley refused to smile...oh the life of a 6 month old ;) }
Little by little we have gotten the house decorated!
I am like a kid in a candy store this time of year but I can truly tell you that having a baby in the house puts the magic back into the season.
