Six Months Old

This past Saturday, my baby celebrated his half birthday!  I say this every time but, seriously, how is he already 6 months old?  He's now sitting up on his own, cutting more teeth, and reaching out for people to carry him.  I realize I might get cyber-slapped for saying this but my baby rocks at sleeping!  Since two months old, he sleeps from 8:00 p.m. until 8:00 a.m. the next morning.  I know, we're spoiled.  We have a bed time routine and he knows that as soon as finished his bath, a bottle is soon to come.  Hence why he gets fussy and fidgety while we're trying to dress him since he knows it's dinner time.  

We started rice cereal yesterday and he was indifferent at first but by the afternoon feeding, he was all about it.  On Saturday, we'll start feeding him carrots.  I've decided to make my own baby food and my husband sweetly gifted me a Baby Brezza and lots of baby storage containers.  Oh and not only will he start veggies this weekend but we are also planning on getting his first haircut!  I wanted to wait a year but his hair is so long that I'm having to tuck it behind his ears!

Lucas has always been very social and smiley but I love that he now reaches out for people to carry him.  Since he's teething a bunch, he reaches for anything to bite on, my jewelry and clothes included.  Since I'm not a big fan of showing up to work with a slobbery shirt or necklace, I'm so glad to have bought this Chewbeads necklace.  Lucas LOVES chewing on it and since it's a bright color, he gravitates towards it when I wear it and starts fidgeting for me to pick him up so he can start chewing.  I'm thinking of getting it in black or gray so I can wear them more often.  I love that it's functional and still looks nice for when I'm out and about with the baby.  Ladies with teething babies, I highly recommend these!


  1. Oh yes, Chewbeads are awesome! I can agree the time does go fast - mine is now 2.5 years old!

  2. He is adorable! Can't believe he is six months either! I wish I had known about the chewy beads when my boys were teething because they always were chewing on my knuckles. I was super nervous about starting my oldest on food when he was little and my doctor told us that avocadoes are the best to start with because of all the amazing goodness in them, but making your own food is so awesome! Good luck with it!

  3. 6 months already! It seems like you were just heading into the hospital. I can see how much you love him. So precious!

  4. Aww, I love it! Lucas is so handsome :) I love your hair in a little ponytail, too - so cute!

  5. Chew bead necklace?! I mean, what a great idea! Seriously, that's genius! It's a gorgeous color too :) Happy 6 months to Lucas!
