Happy Half-Birthday, Fish! Now don't go getting any older. Somehow you're halfway to, well, we all know what you're halfway to, without Mama having to mention it and go into hysterics. Just, like I said, please don't go getting any bigger. I like you on my hip, I like you immobile, I like you just the way you are, baby.At six months, you are eating every three hours. And getting hungry for more, particularly at lunchtime. Don't worry, buddy, we won't make you wait any longer for f-o-o-d.

You are riding along with your sister for Mama's runs, and today got to go for your first one by yourself in the BOB. You couldn't stop looking up at me through the little window.

You are very vocal. We're pretty sure Da-da will eventually be your first word.

You mostly take two naps.

You've been sleeping through the night for almost two weeks now, 6:30pm-6:30am. We love you.

You're in 6-12 month and 12 month clothes.

You can scoot all over and backwards.

You like that xylophone. The saucer, so-so. The highchair, about five minutes. The crib with some toys, a little longer.

Sitting up means a whole new perspective, and new things to grab. Like grass. Mmmmmmm.

You loooooooooooooooooooove your lovey. If we ever lost that thing...oh! I shudder to think.

And we love you. Happy Six Months, Buddy! Happy Birthday!

Happy 6 Months! Sleeping through the night. I can't even explain my jealousy. Joey is 8 months old & still getting up once or twice a night.
