Logan (6 months)

Don't be confused about why I am just now writing about Logan at 6 months...
He is, in fact, 7 months old now, but my slow blogging has left me needing to post about 6 month stuff before I get 7 month old memories on here. Yikes. 

Month 6 was a big one for Logan. We continue to be amazed at how strong and tough he is. Before he turned 7 months old he completely took off crawling. He is unstoppable! As soon as the motion clicked, he was off, and you can tell he loves it. He also sits big and strong on his own now. 
His spikey little hair-do is coming in thicker everyday, and his big blue eyes look at us like this all the time! He has such expressive eyes and eyebrows, and laughs so easily. He's making lots of sweet sounds. 
I think I say it every month, but we count our blessings for such a happy, calm, content little boy. He has such a sweet disposition, and rarely fusses. Besides the occasional reminder that he is hungry or tired, our guy is good to go. 
 However, now that he is fully aware of what is going on around him, he does not like to be left out. If we leave the room to do a quick task or move to a place he can't see us, he gives a good holler. (Especially this mama!) But really, now he just takes off after us. Ha! 
 Logan's daily routine and sleep patterns are still running the same as last month. After a couple of hours of being up in the morning, he needs a short nap. He takes another nap around 1 and it lasts for a couple of hours. He typically stays awake for the rest of the day. The exception to this is if he is in his car seat and we are driving or shopping. He will readily fall asleep in there. 
 Logan weighs 19 lbs. now, and is starting to feel heavy on my arm even. I need to weigh Makenah and see how much she weighs. There is less and less difference to the feel of carrying them. He's also starting to get "bossed" around quite a bit by his sis. There is a lot of practice right now in sharing toys and space. Ha!
 Logan is a great eater, and has increased his consumption of solid food quite a bit towards the end of month 6, as he has now mastered keeping it all in his mouth. He'll eat most varieties of fruits and vegetables, but he can't handle peas. Haha. Makenah loves to feed Logan, and will pull up a chair right next to his high chair and feed him his meal. He grins at her, and goes right along with it. He's so easy going. 
Our big boy is growing so fast.
We love you Logan.
