6 months already

It's hard to believe 6 months ago today Brayden was born on a beautiful spring day. Especially since we woke up today to our first snow fall of the year. And so far it's a doozy!! The trees looks so cool with all the thick snow covering them. A great scene to look at but sure glad today it's Saturday and we are staying inside the cozy house for the day. Though Eric is at work today hopefully making a couple sales.

View outside the front door this morning.

We found one of our squirrel friends in the trees this morning.

Brayden continues to be a happy baby but starting to show some signs of "give me what I want right now or I'll scream until I get it." I have stopped with the breast milk so it's formula full time now. He's becoming more and more of a puker and formula puke makes me gag. The good side is he's loving his baby food. Haven't found a food he won't eat yet (though we haven't tried prunes). He's like a little bird when eating just sits there the whole time with his mouth open waiting for more.

Look I can hold my own bottle but not for long enough to feed myself yet.

He's almost crawling now too. He gets up on all 4's and moves his little body back and forth until he scoots forward. I'm sure by Christmas we will have a crawler. (YIKES!) His main means of movement though is rolling. He rolls everywhere until he gets stuck against a wall. He hasn't figured out how to roll the other direction yet.

I was trying to make him crawl to the bottle here. He got there but by pulling himself around.

He is still a joy to take places because he just loves to look around. And at this age he can't run away from you. He just stares and takes it all in. He is also a great sleeper when it's time for bed he gets fussy and you can put him right in his crib. This one doesn't need to be rocked for a while he just falls asleep on his own. I do miss the cuddling so I'll steal him from bed from time to time and he will sleep right on my chest. So he can be a good snuggler (and little heater).

We won't have his official weight and height until his 6mth check up which is in a couple weeks. But again 6 months has went by so fast and he has been such a great baby I could almost have more(?).

Hard to believe in 6 more months our little happy camper will be 1 and the weather should be beautiful once again!!
