6 Months!

Oh my...he's so sweet I could just eat him!  Seriously, I don't think he could be any cuter!  And that puff on his head is my very favorite.  Ever now and then Joe threatens to cut it off and he gets a few threats right back!:)
Oh yes, I am in love with this little guy- more and more each day.  Can you believe, despite those adorable rolls, that Liam is now only in the 20th percentile for weight?  They said that it's pretty normal for a nursing baby...especially since we cut out most of the night feedings.  Yes, you read that right, he is mostly "sleeping through the night" now!  Lately he's been going to bed for the night around 6:30 or 7:00 and sleeping until 4 or 5 in the morning (and then most of the time going back to sleep for another hour or two after he eats)! AMAZING!  Sometimes he still wakes up around 10 or 11 to eat (but even that is fine with me).  And once he started sleeping longer stretches at night he even started taking less and longer naps during the day.  Some days there are 3 naps, but lately it's been most two naps (usually an hour and a half to three hours each)!  We are so thankful for more sleep!
He is babbling and blowing raspberries like a champ, rolling over more, and even starting to be able to sit.  He's still pretty wobbly though and always falls over at some point so we can't exactly let him sit on his own yet, but I'm very much looking forward to that day!  Until then I'll just keep trying to enjoy these days when he still loves to be held by his mama!
The kids are starting to enjoy playing with him a bit more as he starts to become more interactive with all of us.  And he thinks they are the best ever.  He's also been quite entertained by the dog lately.  He's still a big hair puller so Sadie better enjoy this time because once he's mobile she might be in trouble!:)  And he continues to be a great eater and is pretty much enjoying just about every kind of food we have given him (I am oh so thankful for that)!  
He loves to play peek-a-boo, swing in his doorway swing, jump a bit in his jumper, and put every single thing he can get his hands on in his mouth!  He's also really enjoyed our times outside (we took him snowshoeing in the sled recently and he didn't fuss one single time on a two hour trip and even fell asleep in the sled again)!  He really is the best baby!  He's been sick the last week and a half (he caught a bug at his "well child" check up) and during the worst of it he was a little bit fussy (not even a lot) and it made me realize how little he actually fusses.  He's just such a happy, content baby.  And I am a very blessed mama!
