Henry - 6 Months (May 2012)

You have gotten to be such a big boy!  Not only physically, but in the ways that you observe things, handle toys, react to sounds, etc. 
You like to touch Lucie, but she's still not too fond of getting her eyeballs grabbed.
You have the funniest facial expressions.  Some of my favorites are when you raise your eyebrows while looking around a room... focus hard and stick your tongue out a little when forming words (babble)... open your eyes real wide when startled.
You are really ticklish and giggle when I wash under your arms and under your chin.
You met your new cousin, Travis, who is 5 months younger than you... but will be your size in no time.  You all liked cuddling together and sleeping.
 We moved to Northern KY and you have adapted quite well.  Your sleep was the most affected and you started waking up every few hours at night.  It was hard, but after a few weeks you went back to just waking up a few times.
 You had to say goodbye to your daycare friends (Camryn, Emaya, McKinley, Kinley) and the people who cared for you (Miss Rebecca, Jessyka and Beth).  I actually cried when I left there for the last time.  They were all so great... letting me come see you every day.  They would text me every morning to let me know what time you would be ready to eat at lunch, so that I could come feed you.  It was the best part of my day!  I really bonded with everyone at BALC and I know you did too!
Coolest Mohawk since Maddox Jolie-Pitt!
 Good side to that is I spent all of May home with you!  Even Daddy was home with us most of the time.  We spent the majority of the time moving and settling into our new home, but we also went to the aquarium, zoo,  spent a lot of time with our family and exploring our new city.

Newport Aquarium with your friend, Cale.
 You tried solid foods for the first time.  We started with cereal and  you were NOT a fan!  Neither were you a fan of bananas nor sweet potatoes.  I'm pretty sure you just don't like eating from a spoon.  You do, however, like drinking water from a sippy cup.  You spit most of it out, but at least you like it in your mouth.
 You cough before you sneeze.  I think it's because you feel the sensation of a sneeze coming on and don't know what it is, so you cough.  It's hilarious!
 You still resemble your dad, but are starting to look a little like me... mainly your eyes and nose.
I celebrated my first Mother's Day!  You and Daddy made me feel very appreciated with new patio furniture and flowers/balloons.  Of course, the balloon was your favorite part.  :)
You are so cute and learning so fast!  I love to see the world through your eyes!


  1. So good to see a post from you, girl! Henry just keeps getting cuter and that possible??? Hope all is well in N. KY. Have a great weekend!
