Oliver is Six Months Old!

Oliver is SIX MONTHS OLD! (gasp)

18 pounds, 5 ounces (60%)
28.5 inches long (97%)
17 inch head circumference (30%)

At six months, Oliver:

eats 7-8 ounces every 4-5 hours ... and a bowl of cereal at night
takes only one nap in the afternoon from 1-3pm
much to his parents' dismay, is not sleeping through the night (eating once at 1am)
wears size 6-12 months (snugly) and size 12-18 months (comfortably)
is EXTREMELY LONG ... off the growth charts last month!
sleeps on his belly by choice
is just beginning to sit independently (slouching over a bit)
is OH-SO-READY to crawl ... and can get up on his hands and knees
tried his first vegetable (squash) this month
sucks his fingers (just like his NeNe did)

also enjoys sucking on his toes
loves tearing paper and anything that crinkles
demands to be held during every meal
protests his infant carrier until he gets taken out of it
is still suuuuuper laid back and mommy's "easy baby"
attended two Sherando High School football games this month
thinks his big brother is the funniest person in the world
total . drool . monkey .
poops more than any baby I've ever known ... seriously!
squeals and "sings" all the time just so you know he's around
has been through a hurricane
enjoyed his first Halloween as a lobster
wears size 3 diapers
loves holding mommy's hand -- constantly 
thinks mommy's hair is the most fun toy in the universe
is still ... slowly ... earning Jackson's approval

... and fits perfectly into our family!

Happy Six Months, baby boy!

I cannot believe you've been here 1/2 a year already!
You are growing up so fast!
Mommy is proud of you and loves you with all her heart!

Oliver is one big bundle of joy. He looks so precious, makes me wish I could pick him up and hold him tight with a big ole hug. Looking at pics of him and Jackson brings tears of joy.
