Happy 6 Months Ethan!


Dear Little Man,


Today you are 6 months old...and today I am 29 years old!  Happy Birthday to us!

How is it possible that 6 months have passed since you were born?  Though the seasons have changed and so have you!...I just can't believe you're half a year old today!  26 weeks on the 26th!  And half a year old on my birthday.  I love that you, me and Daddy are all 26 babies...pretty cool!



Where to even begin on this last month?  You just blossom by the day and we are constantly told what a cute baby you are...and what a good baby you are!  You are always smiling and laughing...we can't get enough of you!


We stopped swadling you this past month and you've done really well with it.  You actually prefer to sleep on your right side, which is adorable.  And you're normally only wake once a night...while also taking two naps during the day.  You've also been known to snore on occasion as well!  It's the cutest!


You're so ready!


Some exciting milestones happened this past month!  You had your first bite of solid food {baby oatmeal} on the 22nd and ate it right down!  You loved it so much and would start squawking immediately for more.  You also blew bubbles with the food...which we all thought was pretty funny.  I can't wait to introduce more food to you...I'm actually hoping to give you a veggie tonight for our birthdays!  Exciting stuff, I know!  ;)



You had your first overnight with Grandma and Grandpa Schue so Daddy and I could go to San Francisco for the night.  We saw a musical and did some last minute Christmas shopping...but of course, we talked about you pretty much the whole time.  Grandma and Grandpa said you did great...not that we would expect anything less.


We also celebrated your first Christmas!  It was a winter wonderland-type of a day...complete with snow!  We opened gifts from Grandma Kidman and Great-Grandma Higgins at home and then went over to Grandma & Grandpa Schue's for more presents and dinner.  You were definitely more interested in the paper and ribbons than the toys and clothes themselves...who can blame you?  And of course, having your cuzzies around was fun too!



Last, you got to meet Bochy, the new goldendoodle puppy that Grandma and Grandpa brought home this past week.  It really made for the cuuuutest Christmas ever...puppies and babies...I don't think we can top that!  



You sit up pretty well on your own now and roll like a champ...I just can't believe how quickly you're developing.  You love your feet and put them in your mouth.  Really, you put everything in your mouth these days!  You love toys that light up and have music.  You really love music...you were even singing in church on Christmas Eve!


I am loving this stage and really trying to enjoy every single day of it, instead of anticipating the next stage, but it's hard with how much you change on a daily basis.  You're such a little love...always snuggling and smiling...we absolutely adore you and feel so so blessed to have you in our lives.



This is definitely my favorite birthday yet...getting to spend it you is such a joy.


Love you to the moon and back!
