We can't believe our little guy is already half a year old. Where has the time gone?! Mister Smiley has change so much in the last month, and as his Daddy likes to say, "he's becoming a little kid!" Our little man is now sitting up for a few seconds with no support and realizes that he needs to grab onto something when he starts to topple. He passes things from one hand to the other and back again. This month he became really interested in food and silverware. We bought him his own set of spoons which he enjoys playing with while we eat meals. This little guy loves to move! He always kicking his legs, rolling back and forth, putting his feet in his mouth, and grabbing for anything within his reach. He is babbling a lot more these days and his most repeated word is dadadadadada- Nick is so pleased! This month he suddenly realized we had a dog living with us and screams excitedly when he sees her and gets to pet her. (For her part, Lucy is quite gentle and patiently lets Hayden grab her fur/eyeballs/ tail.) This little guy is weighing in at 15 lbs, 14 oz which puts him in the 21st percentile. He's going to be tall, just like his parents (ha!), at 27.75 inches and in the 64th percentile for length. Hayden is currently wearing 3-6 month clothing and some 6 month clothing. He doesn't have any teeth yet, but we can tell he's working on getting those chomps- slowly, but surely. We have loved the past 6 months with our sweet little mister and are looking forward to what the next 6 bring!
