Our sweet Noah turned six months old on the 8th, and I'm not sure how that happened. The time seems to be flying by. He is now 29 inches long and weighs 16 pounds 9 ounces...tall and skinny. He's sitting up pretty well on his own now, and is a very wiggly boy. I'm pretty sure once he starts crawling we will never keep up with him.
Our newest addition this month: solid foods. So far we've tried several types of oatmeal with fruit, apples, peaches, an apple strawberry banana combo, peas, green beans, squash, squash casserole, sweet potatoes, and chicken with noodles. The only thing he didn't really like the first time he tried it was peas. But when we tried them again a couple weeks later he seemed to like them. He still doesn't have any teeth yet, but I'm sure they will be coming soon.
With all the nice weather we've been having, we have been going on lots of strolls around the neighborhood. Noah gets excited when I strap him in the stroller, but he falls asleep every single time we go out.
He loves anything that makes a crinkly noise, so when I brought home a balloon for Valentine's day, he loved it. Also a big hit: a bag of white cheddar popcorn that Daddy bought. He still talks quite a bit, loves his jumper, and is overall one of the happiest babies I've ever seen. People that come to visit are just amazed at how calm and content he is. We'll see if that lasts as he gets older. I think our next big step will be baby proofing our house and blocking off all the things he shouldn't get into. I can't believe how much he's changed already, and I look forward to seeing how he changes in the months to come. God has blessed us with a truly wonderful little boy.
