6 months...

Since Tucker turns 7 months in 6 days, I figured I ought to post his six month pictures and stats.

At six months Tucker is 27.5" (the 75th percentile) and weighs 17 lbs 14 oz (the 50th percentile). He is definitely thinning out, but we aren't suprised. He is such a wiggle worm and always on the go!
He is such a happy little guy, and is starting to enjoy Kerrigan's company (and vice versa). I LOVE LOVE LOVE watching them giggle and interact with each other.

He still has no teeth (I swear K had like 5 by the time she was his age), but he doesn't let that stop him from eating solids...he gums the heck out of little finger foods like its nobody's business!

He is obviously sitting on his own, and is trying so so hard to crawl. His efforts usually result in a backwards scoot, which frustrates the dickens out of him.

He is one chill little dude. Some call it a good nature, I personally think it is a survival instinct. The less attention he draws, the smaller the chances of getting pummelled by his sister.

While he is very good natured, he does have a temper that appears every once in awhile. It comes quick, and it comes hard. He can be way more spunky than Kerrigan was. Doesn't happen often, but he makes sure you hear him when he needs something!

Our buddy boy is still such a snuggle bug. I try to make sure at least 1 nap a day is in his crib, but 1 is also in our living room (usually being held by me). I want him to be flexible with sleep...either self soothing in his crib, or on the go wherever we are. So far it has worked for us. He sleeps good in his crib, but GREAT when he is cuddled up to mom.
I love buddy/mommy naptime. So much of my day is consumed by a suddenly very demanding 2 year old, so it is nice to be able to spend a few hours lovin' on my bubba!
I can't believe he is over half a year old! If only there was a slow motion button for life. Tucker, please stop growing so fast!!!!

*Sorry for the picture overload...these are probably some of my all time favorite pictures I have ever taken. It was hard to choose which ones to post, so you got a large majority of them : )
