6 months...half a year!

Yea Dylan, 6 months already! You’re such a big boy! Dylan started eating cereal this month. He began waking up at 3am hungry, so we figured it was time to start on some solids. We started feeding him a bowl before bedtime and he was not interested at all, but after about 4-5 days he began eating like it was his last meal! Now he also has a bowl in the morning and a bowl before bedtime. His daycare teachers say he enjoys eating breakfast with his friends in the mornings. Tomorrow we see Dr. Coco for his 6-month appointment so hopefully he’ll give us some guidance on continuing solids and introducing some fruits and vegetables (and just in time for Thanksgiving too!).

Dylan also started sitting up on his own this month. He looks so cute! Daddy bought him a jumper and he LOVES it. He can jump on it for 45 minutes straight with no problems. And Dylan is definitely starting to show his personality more everyday. He is reaching for toys and items he wants, and when he doesn’t get it, he will get upset. He also likes playing with Keith and I’s iPhones, and when we don’t let him play with it, he starts getting fussy. He is definitely the ‘first child’ (and only child, if Dylan gets his way). But we love the little person he’s becoming :)

This weekend we had Dylan’s 6-month pictures and some family portraits taken, so hopefully we’ll be able to see them soon. I know Sara did a great job! Here’s to a stress-free Thanksgiving holiday!!!


Happy Halloween!

Dylan wanted to wish everyone a Happy Halloween! He didn’t get to experience a true Halloween since mom and dad were both sick all weekend and he was asleep by 7:30 pm, but we still carved his little pumpkin and (as you can see) he still got in costume. He’s the cutest cow we’ve ever seen!!! Now we can move on to preparing for the holiday season...yipee!!!
