Noah turned 6 months old this week. I cannot believe our little boy is half a year old! In one way, it feels like he was just born yesterday, and in another way, it feels like he has been with us forever. So funny how time can feel like that.
Life with our 6 month old is so much fun! He is so interactive now and LOVES to play! He has mastered sitting solo (yay Noah!), so he now spends time during the day sitting and playing with his toys. This is so nice for me because I can actually be hands-free some during the day!:) Some of his favorite toys to play with now while he is sitting are his measuring spoons, measuring cups, Sophie, his teethers and a whisk. He also still loves to stand and play in his exersaucer. We added batteries to the music part of it, and he now loves pressing the buttons and hearing all of sounds! It is so much fun for me to watch him play and learn!
In other exciting news, Noah has turned into a "Foodie Baby". We started him on solids at 5 months since he was showing signs that he was ready, and so far he has loved everything I have made for him. I am one proud Momma! He has had avocados, bananas, sweet potatoes, pears and butternut squash. I am sure we will hit some bumps in the road with food at some point in the future, but for now, it is going great. I am making all of his baby food and really enjoying it (I am sure it helps that he has liked my cooking so far!). He def. knows how to win his Momma over...gobble her food right up! I am still exclusively breastfeeding Noah, and I am very thankful that it is continuing to go so well (esp. since Noah will not take a bottle anymore). Be on the lookout for more "Foodie Baby" posts!
Noah has 2 bottom teeth, and is just about ready to cut all 4 of his top teeth (yes, 4 teeth!). His 2 top incisors have already started to cut a bit, and the other 2 teeth are right at his gum line. As soon as those 4 pearly whites poke all the way through, I will try to capture a photo of them!
