John David at 6 Months Old

Hi friends! I thought I'd pop in and write about my little man John who is almost a seven month old! How on earth does time go by so quickly? I honestly can't believe it. Seems like just yesterday I was holding a newborn. Even though I miss that stage I'm also absolutely loving this stage. He's at the stage where he's so fun. In the last few days he gone from the army man crawl to an actual crawling on all fours. He's also sitting up on his own which is so fun to see!! I have loved watching him learn new things and every month he learns more and more. Human life and progression is truly amazing and to watch it first hand is so special to me.

Last week we finally bought a play pen since of course he gets into everything. It really comes in handy for when you're in the kitchen cooking or in another room and can't keep your eye on them. It's funny how outlets and cords are so much more fascinating to a baby than a toy. I feel so much better knowing he can't get into trouble when he's in the play pen. Huge lifesaver. That and the exersaucer. He loves that. The one we have has a lion hand puppet on it that makes him crack up. It's super cute. He especially likes it when I pretend to have it talk to him. :)

This month we also starting giving him solids after his 6 month check up. So far he's had carrots, sweet potatoes, winter squash, apples, apricot, pears, watermelon, blueberries and oatmeal cereal. He has liked everything we've given him so far. It's been so fun having him try new things. The faces he makes are just too cute. Especially the first time we gave him fruit. He liked the sweetness. :) Boy after my own heart for sure.

Being a mama has been something I've always wanted ever since I was a little girl. I am so happy and I'm so very thankful for my sweet baby boy. Here's to 5 more! ;) lol I think my husband would have a heart attack. He says two more kiddos, but I say three. Four kiddos would be my perfect number, but we'll see! :)

PS Aren't John's eyes just the prettiest shade of blue? Whenever we're out and about people always comment on how pretty they are. Also, how happy of a guy he is. I'm one lucky mama! :)
