Henry is 6 months!

It's hard to believe we are already half way through our first year with Henry.  He seems so much younger than we remember Andrew being at this age. I'm sure that has much to do with perspective, having a "big boy" to compare him to. Looking back on the past six months, I am amazed at how seamlessly he has become a part of our family unit. He just seems to go with the flow and happily tag along in all that we do!

Henry hasn't had his official 6 month weigh in yet, that is scheduled for next week, but I would predict he weighs about 17.5 pounds... not a giant like his brother, but still a pretty solid little dude! He is having fun sitting up (almost) by himself and has really begun to examine his toys. Henry has popped out his first two teeth (on the bottom) but seems to be taking a break before working on the top. I am happy about this because we are both getting a lot more sleep! In fact, for the last two nights he has gone from 11:00pm until 7:00am without nursing!!! He is still waking a few times, but is getting back to sleep by himself! (I really hope that putting this in ink doesn't jinx our progress!!). He is also really enjoying his first foods! I think that oatmeal and sweet potato are at the top of his favourites list.

Henry's sixth month has been a month of travel! He has made use of his adorable little passport on a family vacation to the Mayan Riviera and quick weekend in Baltimore/DC. While in Mexico he enjoyed his first dip in the ocean and charmed all of the staff with his silly grin. In DC, he had a great time meeting his Great Uncles, Kevin and Gary, and became the object of serious affection from their pup, Eddie!

Things are really starting to get fun with this little man, and I am happy to say I think we have gotten to the point where maternity leave becomes more vacation than work! Yay!!
