Maddox is 6 months old

Maddox is almost 6 months old! I can hardly believe it.

Dear Maddox,

You are such a joy most of the time. You have your daddy and me laughing all of the time at your silliness. You are learning so much and growing so fast.
Sometimes when we put you in your car seat to go somewhere we both get a little misty eyed and comment on how big you have gotten. You aren't a "baaaaaby".. you are a baby. You know what you want and sometimes will yell at us to get our attention to it. You hate sitting in your car seat at restaurants. You like to be up in the action. When you are able to fully sit on your own, I think you will be much happier with that.

You are now in a size 3 diaper as of last week. You wear some 3-6 month clothes and some 6-9. You are long so you need the 6-9 more and more.
You go to sleep between 8-9pm and you wake up between 5-6am on average.
You take 2 good naps a day. Usually around 10am and 2pm.  You still like your second nap to be with mama. Your first one is in your swing.

You are eating alot now! You have oatmeal with fruit in the morning and at dinner we have lots of options. You like carrots, squash, sweet potatoes, peas, green beans and avocados so far. You do not really love broccoli yet. I think the broccoli is still too textured for you. We will try it later. You love to drink water out of your sippy cup. You also love to drink out of whatever cup mommy and daddy have. A lot. You fuss if we don't let you.

You almost crawl all the way. You get on all fours and kind of hop to where you want to go. Soon you will be crawling the old fashioned way all over. You are so fast right now, I cant imagine when you get the full hang of it. You love your walker and race all over the house! You love to be read to. You love your books. You will play with them over any other toy.

You love water. Baths and the pool. You have so much fun and just splash and kick. I call those your swimmy feet.

You laugh a lot. You are ticklish. Your laugh is infectious.

We love you so very much and often wonder what we did before we had you.
You are our heart and soul baby boy.
