Six Months

Lawson turned six months old last week.  Just saying it is a little weird.  Sometimes I feel like the time has gone by so quickly and other times I feel like he has been a part of the family for much longer than six months.  He fits right in around here.  As I am typing this, the girls have their Elmo chairs pulled up by the swing and are both reading him their library books.  It is precious.  I would take a picture except my phone is plugged in to the computer!

this photo is from today when i was trying to get him to take a nap!  he is chillin' in his sister's pink swing, rockin' the paci.  not the best picture in the world, but pretty much sums up his life at six months old.

Some facts about Lawson:

Height: 26 inches.  35th percentile.  He was in like the 60 something percentile at four months...he just hasn't gotten much longer!

Weight:  15lbs 13oz.  22nd percentile.  Again, he was the 25th percentile at four months, so just a little less this time.

Lawson has been the smallest of my babies so far.  I am sure that will change at some point, but for now I like my small little man.

Eating:  This kid is an eater, which is weird considering he stays so small!  We have started rice cereal and bananas.  Sweet potatoes and avocado are right around the corner.  Truthfully, I need to be more consistent about his eating times.  It is just not super easy to remember.  I sometimes feel like all I do all day long is feed kids and wipe their butts.  Oh, and clean up after they eat.  That is a big job too.

Sleeping:  Several naps a day and at night he sleeps 8 or 9 hours, eats and then sleeps a few more hours.  I would prefer a longer stretch, but I will take what I can get.  I am still terrified of letting him CIO for naps or to get to sleep so we are one of "those" families who let him fall asleep in the swing, or rock him to sleep.

Likes:  Rolling all over the living room floor, playing with toys, swinging, and blowing spit bubbles.

Dislikes:  Being hungry, being hot, being ignored.

Lawson is becoming more and more mobile everyday.  He is up on all fours and rocking back and forth, but not crawling yet.  He doesn't like to be in a sitting position, but we are working on that.

He is still an easy baby.  He is almost always happy and quiet.  I think it has more to do with the fact that he is number three and really has no choice but to be easy going, but whatever the cause he is for sure the most laid back and easy going one of the three.

I can't say enough how much I love being his mom.  He is such a great little guy.  Happy six months, Lawson.


  1. Sweet, sweet, sweet...and handsome too.

  2. Awwww. I can't believe the time just flies. I loved seeing him the other day and getting those smiles out of him. See you in the morning...

  3. If it makes you feel any better, Haven is 14 months and we are still one of "those" families. Haha!

  4. So sweet!! There is nothing wrong with being one of *those* families :)
