Liam 6 Months

6 months... where did the past half year go? Time has flown so quickly since Liam was born. I can't believe he's already 6 months old. He is such a joy. I have random pictures of him inserted throughout the post. This past month with him has been so much fun!

His shirt says, "Snuggle this Muggle"
Gma did an Easter photo shoot and I think he loved the colored eggs

Liam sleeps so good at night. I am counting my blessings, crossing my fingers, and saying all the prayers that this continues. He will normally go to bed between 8:00pm- 9:00pm, and wake up around 5:00am. I don't mind the 5:00 am wake up, because that allows me to spend some time with my sweetie before I head to work.

His naps are a different story. He is NOSEY and always wants to see what everyone else is doing. So because of that, he does not always nap well for his baby sitters. When he's at home with Lee and I (we must be boring!), we can usually get him to take a morning and afternoon nap, and sometimes he'll take a little snooze during the evening, but not always. One thing we do struggle with is getting him to sleep. It's very rare that he will let us rock him to sleep. If he's going to fall asleep, its usually in the car or after we've fed him. If he's acting super fussy because he's tired, we'll sometimes even give him a 1 or 2 oz bottle because we know that will get him to fall asleep.

I happened to be home with him yesterday, and I could tell he was tired because he was getting fussy and rubbing his eyes, but he just wouldn't fall asleep. I stuck him in the car seat and drove to Dunkin' Donuts, and he was asleep before I got to the coffee shop. It was a win/win because I got a caramel coconut iced coffee (YUM!), and Liam fell asleep! He ended up napping for about 2 hours.

Over the weekend, we started giving Liam baby food (green beans), and hes indifferent about it so far, but he does love his high chair! He eats about 6 times a day, usually a 5 oz bottle. Every now and then he'll eat an extra ounce or two to sleep, or even in addition to his bottle.

He was excited about his first time in the high chair.
He is rolling all over the place, and loves tummy time. He tries really hard to crawl, and gets so mad that he can't. He's not quite sitting up on his own yet, but he's pretty close, so I won't be surprised if he does that in the next month or 2. He is drooling/slobbering a ton, and he puts everything in his mouth. He loves watching tv, being sang to, and anything that lights up.

This past month, he got to spend time with all of his grandparents, go to his cousin's dance recital, celebrate St. Patty's Day, attend 2 Easter Egg hunts, and celebrate Easter with both sides of our family. His bff Madden was born, and we are hoping to meet him in person soon. It has been an exciting month for all of us! Liam is such a happy baby! He has brightened our lives so much, and we love that he is the center of our world.
Happy Easter!
