...is 6 months and 4 days old.
...is sitting on his own (my favorite milestone, I'm totally psyched).

...sits in a high chair at restaurants (awesome).
...sits in the front of the grocery cart (Praise Jesus).
...still loves a bath.

...has graduated to a big baby bath tub.

...sports a natural faux hawk.

...gagged every time I tried to feed him rice cereal, so I skipped ahead to baby food.

...LOVES baby food and has no problem eating whatever delicious fruit or veggie puree I stick in his face.

...likes to grab for the spoon when I'm feeding him and ends up with more on his face than in his mouth. Perhaps that's why his skin is so perfect.

...enjoyed his first Neiman's Christmas parade this year.

...has the sweetest face on the planet.

...smiles 90% of the time.

...laughs 75% of the time that he's smiling.
...thinks almost everything is funny. Especially his brother's face.
...is big. And heavy. And my arms hurt.
...fits perfectly into 12 month clothes and is quickly moving into size 4 diaper territory.

...would prefer that I feed him, but I'm trying to convince him otherwise.

...still doesn't have any teeth, but still acts like he's gettin' 'em.

...loves to watch people when we are out-and-about, but is really a homebody.
...is very laid back but chock full of energy. If such a thing is possible.
...does not like to cuddle.
...looks like Alex in this picture.

...makes this face most of the time (even when he's not in his high chair):

...doesn't always cooperate at naptime.
...loves to eat paper. And wrapping paper. And paper towels. Did I mention cardboard? The kid would chew on a shoebox all day long.

...loves to play peek-a-boo.
...loves to play with his brother's toys.
...prefers noisy toys that light up and talk.
...is still the sweetest baby ever. I mean ever.
