I can't believe you are already 6 months old. I feel like I just gave birth to you, but that was a half year ago. In my eyes, 6 months is a milestone. When you were first born, I wondered what you would be like at this point in your life, and I have to say that this is such a fun age so far. Your personality is really starting to show, and you can do so much more.
You're such a great eater! You've been eating solids for awhile now and you've had rice cereal, oatmeal, green beans, peas, sweet potatoes, squash, carrots, pears, and bananas. You've loved everything, and I think your favorite was carrots. Unfortunately, carrots give you a terrible tummy ache, so you can't have those again until you're a bit older. I'm excited to give you more fruit and eventually meat. You have shown a great interest in what mommy and daddy are eating and drinking in front of you, and you love to touch and try to eat our drink glasses! It's been fun seeing what you like to eat, and so far you are not picky like your parents! You still love to nurse and are doing that every 2 hours, sometimes a little bit more or less.
You experienced your first Thanksgiving in November! We went to daddy's Aunt Kathy and Uncle Jimmy's house and spent the night at Granny's house. You did wonderfully, even with 2 big dogs and a ton of people and noise. You don't sleep so well at other people's houses though, just like mommy. Speaking of sleep, you are getting much better at home! You've been going to bed earlier and doing some longer 5-6 hours stretches some nights, and then other times you sleep 3-4 hours at a time and then want to nurse. Either way, it's a lot better than getting up every 2 hours like you were doing for awhile! You are also getting more consistent with your naps and you are taking longer ones.
At this point we're pretty sure you are going to keep your big, beautiful blue eyes, which you got from mommy. Aside from those eyes, you look more and more like your daddy every day, especially when you smile. It's so interesting to watch you grow and change and see what kind of person you are becoming.

Landon, these first 6 months have gone by so fast, and I know we will be celebrating your first birthday before we know it. Your daddy and I have had a blast getting to know you and taking care of you. You are such a blessing to us and we really cannot imagine life without you. We love you!
