It’s so hard for me to believe that Foster is already 6 months old. Where did the time go?
Foster is such a joy- there is just no other way to describe him! After we moved past the yucky reflux stage he became the happiest baby. Even when he cries, he usually sneaks in a laugh or a smile! He smiles at almost everyone he meets. I think he may be a little bit of a ham and a ladies’ man as well. He loves to smile at women and girls.
Recently we made a trip to Nana’s classroom. As soon as we walked in to the classroom and had 25 kids ‘oohing and ahhing’ over Emma and Foster, Emma quickly hid behind my leg, and Foster stood on the table (with my help) and smiled and laughed and “talked” to the kids forever. It was like he was saying, “Yep, you’re all here to see me, I’m pretty cute, huh?” I was cracking up at the look on his face. He soaked in every bit of the attention the kids gave him.
This past month he has completely mastered log rolling across the entire living room. It is definitely time to baby proof because he is on the move. He is very close to sitting up unassisted. He has a very large head so that makes it difficult for him to balance his upper body! I’m pretty sure he’ll master this trick very soon.
Within the past day or two he has started to say “Da-da-da-da-da” constantly. Robin thinks that he’s saying “Dada.” Foster loves his new-found voice and uses it very loudly in restaurants and other public places.
He is sleeping through the night pretty well. Occasionally he wakes once in the middle of the night but is pretty easily soothed back to sleep.
This past month we started cereal and solid foods. He has done pretty well with everything we have offered. He loves to eat!
He has really started grabbing my face and trying to give me kisses. Of course, I just eat this up! I could cuddle with him all day.
I will post more pictures of Foster in a day or so but for now, I’ll leave you with these two pictures taken today… he’s getting so big!
I love you Foster! Happy Half Year Birthday!
