Six Months: Happy Birthday, Henry!

Oh, Henry, you are pure joy! You seriously bring immense gladness into our hearts.

You changed so much from 5-6 months. You are essentially crawling! I say "essentially" because it's more of an army crawl, but you can get anywhere you want to go, and quickly! You love to crawl all around your room (and over obstacles like pillows), and you even crawled from your room, down the hallway, through the dining room, and to the very back of the kitchen.

You've also started pulling up into a standing position completely independently. Although you can sit for short periods of time by yourself, you really have no use for it. You would rather crawl around and explore the house. When I asked the pediatrician what percent of babies are able to move like you at your age, he said only five percent. I honestly think it's all the Montessori we do at home.

You also sprouted two teeth! First, your right bottom one broke through, and your left bottom one followed very close behind. You've eaten rice cereal, avocado, sweet potato, and banana. You love it all! You love holding the spoon by yourself and drinking out of a real glass.

Hoss still continues to be pretty much your favorite thing. You want to watch him and crawl to him all the time.

It's fun to make you laugh. It's fun to blow raspberries on your abdomen. It's fun to play peek-a-boo. It's fun to watch you smile at yourself in the mirror.

You are getting so independent with your Montessori floor bed! When you wake up from naps, you crawl to the toys on your low shelf and start playing. If you wake up in the night and start crawling around, you sometimes crawl back onto your bed and fall asleep!

We are so thankful to have you in our lives, and we work really hard to be the kind of parents you deserve.

All our love,

So cute! I love that he's consistently trying to eat his birthday flag.
