Ford you are six months (and Mom is LATE as usual!)

Wow, I absolutely stink at posting these on time! Any who... my baby is six months.....well now, actually he's six and a half months..... gosh it just goes by so fast! Wasn't I pregnant with him like yesterday???? But for blogging sake, today we are celebrating Ford's six month milestones! 

Ford- You are such a cutie!!! You have such a big personality for such a little guy. Mommy and Daddy already know we're going to have our hands full- you are so stubborn. You grab at everything and when we pull it away, you go for it again, and again, and again. You are relentless!

You are also one large baby! At six months old you are already wearing mostly nine/twelve month clothing. In your six month picture your wearing a twelve month onesie, holy smokes child- STOP GROWING! Weighing in at twenty-two pounds you are one heavy kiddo! Mom is definitely getting a workout. No flabby arms here. 

You are also discovering new foods daily. Your favorites so far are bananas and sweet potatoes. You also love mint! If I add fresh mint to any of your green veggies, you gobble them up!!! As for aversions, you are not such a fan of avocado. I'm not sure if it's the flavor or the consistency but when we try to get you to take a few bites the faces you make are priceless (I know Mommy and Daddy can be evil sometimes:)). 

Finally, let's talk about crawling. Kiddo you are SO there! You now get up on all fours and rock back and fourth, but still no forward movement. I said this last post, but geeez- you are SO there!! It's gotta be any day now!!! Definitely by Turkey Day so you can chase after your cousins. One thing I will mention is how much we've worked with you on this.... You think it's hysterical when I get down on all fours and try to mimic crawling. I swear, your just putting it off so you can laugh a few more days at your silly Mama. 

Little, you are becoming such a handful, but gosh, such a joy! We love watching you grow and discover new things (so far, this is my favorite stage!). You are a constant reminder of just how sweet, this life truly is. 

We love you.
