Love Overflowing

Month 6

on July 22, 2010

6 months. 36 weeks. 193 days. 4632 hours. 277920 seconds. The amount of time Zachary has been in our lives. Such a short time in the grand scheme of things. These past six months have FLOWN by! It’s hard to believe that we celebrated his half birthday on Monday. I delivered dinners to a couple of new moms last week and got to see their newborns. It seems like ages ago that Zachary was that small. Funny how that happens.

17 lbs 5 oz (47%)
27 3/4 in (89%) (Although I think he’s longer. He wouldn’t stretch his legs out fully. Stinker.)
HC: 44cm (58%)

He’s really put on some weight since starting solid foods and that is definitely a good thing! He’s still long and skinny though. Speaking of solid foods, during month 6 we started Zachary on vegetables and a fruit or two. He started off with green beans, peas, squash, carrots and prunes. The green beans are the funniest thing to see him take the first bite of. You know how make a face and shudder? He does it with his whole body. Makes me laugh every time!

Month 6 was full of fun. We celebrated papa’s birthday, cousin Tim’s birthday, Father’s Day, 4th of July and had a Prince/Princess picnic with some friends. We finally had some decent weather so we could spend some time hanging in the backyard and at the park. Zachary took his first ride on the swings and loved it! We also made it to the pool for the first time this summer. The jury is still out on that one though.

Zachary is such a smiley boy. His laugh is contagious. You should hear him laugh when I tickle him and sing the beans song to him. He LOVES his feet and toes. He is always trying to play with his feet or get them in his mouth. Whether you are changing his diaper or trying to feed him, you are dealing with feet.

The boy is definitely mobile. He’s been rolling over since he was 3 months old but he is now EVERYWHERE! It was a sad day when I realized that it was time to pack up the play mat and put away the swing. You can put him in the floor of his room, walk away and come back to find him playing with the a/c vent, hanging out under his bed or banging on the diaper champ.

Zachary is a very active, very happy little guy. He is always smiling when I go to get him in the morning as well. He will wake up and play for the longest time. Now if we could just teach big sister that we would be set!

Half a year gone already…..Wow. That was fast!
