Half a year old, already?!

Yes, little man is 6 months old today. Holy cow time really flies. What's next? High school?! :)
Today: February 25th...Declan is 6 months old!!
Weight: 15 lb., 8 oz+ (from last Friday)
Height: 26 3/4 inches
Things to remember...
-Can you say tall and thin? Mr. man is wearing 6-9 month shirts and 12 month pants. Future b-ball player?? I was really pulling for soccer.
-Moving on, my soccer dreams are still alive...Declan is constantly "running" his legs. Cute stuff.
-Declan has TWO teeth (and he's working on more)
-He loves sweet potatoes, rice cereal, bananas and natural applesauce. My parents call him a piranha because he attacks the spoon as it gets near him. Very funny stuff. I've gotten in a couple "laughing matches" with him...I'll start cracking up because of how he eats and then he starts laughing at me (food spraying everywhere, you get the picture).
-I love how he sits in his stroller. It's nice to ditch the snap in car seat and let him sit up. He holds on to his straps like he's on a roller coaster.
-Decs reaches for EVERYTHING. It immediately goes in his mouth.
-Thankfully, he still sleeps 8am-8pm but needs his pacifier popped in his mouth a couple times a night.

I can't believe how much they change. Just 6 months ago, he was this little peanut:


Now, he's this bigger peanut:

Ahh! We just ADORE this little man!!

By the way...I love watching him grow up. You guys deserve the world. I'm glad you got it! :)

What's not to adore? He is so handsome... And such a good little babe. So many of the things you mentioned are just starting to happen with our little guy too. I know all about the nighttime crying spurts for the paci, attacking the bottle when he sees it, and skinny babies. We have yet to try real food or see pearly whites, but I am sure that is coming soon. Ours is about 3 weeks younger, but just as lovable.

I can't believe he's 6 months either! I still remember reading your post saying he was home! Sounds like feeding time is fun! Keep up the good work with that little man, he's sooo happy!

omg Ashley he is just gorgeous! What a mushpot he is! I can't believe how much he has grown and how fast!
Bless him for the 8-8 sleeping- that is awesome! I Know what you mean about the pacifier emergencies throughout the night. We still go through that now with Swim and he's a year! But if thats the least of our problems then bring it on!
xoxox Declan!!!

Love your new header thingy. I can't wait to give Grayson a faux-hawk. Declan is super cute! And so are the pups, of course.
