26 Weeks / Half a Year

I say it every month but somehow, in the blink of an eye, another month has gone by. 
We've known you for half a year.
For 6 months we've watched you grow stronger, watched you hit milestones, watched your personality start to shine through.  
You can sit up on your own for a good chunk of time before tipping over.
You've finally figured out how to eat food off of a spoon. You've had rice cereal, butternut squash, sweet potato, pear, apple, blueberries, pumpkin, banana, prunes and oats. You seem to be a fan of everything so far. 
You love banging on surfaces. We think you're going to love the fact that your uncle is a drummer. The noise you will make.
You love tangling your fists in my hair and yanking what precious little of it I have left out. When I nurse you, you also use that opportunity to reach up and grab fistfuls of my hair. You're lucky you're cute.
You've started to turn into a chatty little baby, babbling and oohing and aahing. You say na-na, ya-ya, and da-da (ma-ma once....only once, but I count it!).
You're still in size 2 diapers and have just a little peach fuzz on your head. 
You laugh when we give you loud kisses and when we smack our lips. You like peek-a-boo now too.
You've been sleeping in your own room for about a week. I miss you not being right beside me but you're only steps away. 
You've also been going to bed around 8:30 at night now, which is nice. 

Oh, kiddo.
There aren't words for us to truly convey how much we love you.
You've given us the best 6 months of our lives so far.

We can't wait to see what the next 6 months bring!
