Isaiah John 6 Months

On March 13th our little buddy turned 6 months old. I can't believe it's been half of a year since he was born. He has grown and changed so much. We are so thankful for every sweet moment we've had with him. Isaiah is starting to get up on his hands and knees and trying so hard to crawl but isn't quite there yet. We're hoping he'll make some more strides to crawl while we're in San Diego this next week.

He continues to eat a ton! His favorites are broccoli, pears, sweet potato and apples. He likes avocado too, but the texture seems to weird him out a little. I have had so much fun making his food and it's so easy to steam up some broccoli and puree it for him. 
"feed me mommy"
I'm sure we'll run into some attachment stuff later on, but right now he is extremely flexible and adapts to different situations really well. I am so thankful that he takes after his dad in the adaptation department. I'll admit, I am not a very well adjusted person. With Andrew's job being what it is, this kid doesn't really have a choice. We can't go anywhere having to do with church with out someone wanting to snatch him up and hold him. For now he goes with the flow and smiles at almost everyone. 

Happy baby boy!
His hair has calmed down. I am a little sad that the Mohawk is gone, but his smile more then makes up for it. I mean this kid smiles at anyone and everyone. And when his two bottom teeth show while he smiles it is the cutest thing ever.

Quick Isaiah Facts:

favorite food: pears
sleep habits: sleeps 12 hours a night (7 to 7) and takes two 2.5 hour naps per day
favorite hobbies: eating, sleeping, and sitting in the stroller while mommy goes for a run or a walk
teeth: 2 teeth and more on the way
weight: 17 lbs 3 oz (43%)
height: 27.3in (76%)
favorite soothing method: sucking his thumb. We love this! His thumb can never get lost or fall on the ground and it doesn't cost any money. We know later on we might have to work hard to break the habit, but for now, we'll take it.
Cute huh?!
first comment that's usually made about him: "that hair" or "that smile" although the mohawk is gone, his hair is still very unruly. And I'm telling you, this kid smiles at EVERYONE!! It's very endearing and makes people feel good :)
firsts: riding in the stroller without the infant attachment. And Isaiah had his first Valentine's Day!

Such a big boy in the stroller

Valentine's Day!
Tomorrow we are off to San Diego to visit the Esqueda's! We are so excited and a bit anxious to get this first flight over with :)

Isaiah John 5 months

*I wrote this post a couple weeks ago and never clicked "publish" oops! 
How is this happening? 5 months already?! Time is flying and we are loving every moment with our little bum. Lots of firsts this month...

5 months old! 2/13/14 
First sippy cup~he loves it!

 Isaiah experienced his first southern snow day(s), pictured below. He doesn't look too happy, but I think he's just taking it all in. During the snow storm it was the perfect time to start solids. So, on Jan 29th Isaiah had his first bite of rice cereal. And he LOVED it! He's already a foodie :)

I love the snow!
I love food!
Daddy feeding baby Isaiah

This was the best year for Isaiah to experience the super bowl because MY team won. Go Seahawks. The three of us dressed in our bright greenish yellow and dark blue to represent. It was such a fun party with some of our best friends.

Last, but certainly not least, those teeth. Plural. Not only did the kid cut one tooth, he managed to get another one in a couple weeks later. We had a few rough nights, but just one week before he turned 5 months old I saw that the first one had popped through. These teeth make feeding time a little interesting, and sometimes painful :(

We love you little Isaiah! You are precious!
