6 months!

Yea! Our little boy is 1/2 a year old!! And what a great 1/2 year it has been!!

This month has been lots of fun - we've travelled out of state (thanks for graduating Ted bacsi) and celebrated our first Christmas (with both grandparents, godparents, and great-grandmother!). We spent the longest time away from home (10 days), and have started on that yummy rice cereal. We also got sick for the first time - a virus (we think it was RSV)! Nate was sweet and shared it with his parents, grandparents, and more!

Nate is changing - like growing hair! yea, the fuzz is going away and longer hair is coming in! He's getting a little more mobile and likes being on his tummy. He can also sit for a bit, but eventually makes it to the "triangle" - leaning forward on his arms. He loves grabbing things, like anything in front of him, and his grandmothers have taught him to sip from a glass.

We also had his 6 month check-up this week and Nate is weighing in at 14 lbs 9 oz and 25 1/2 inches. This puts Nate in the 25th percentile for height, 10th percentile for weight (up from 3rd! yea) and 50th percentile for his head circumference.

Here are some highlights from our Christmas in Waco and Ft. Worth:

Great pictures! My mom loves to give baths in the sink. Joshua hasn't had his first with her yet, but I'm sure the next time we're in Houston, she'll be sure to! Looks like you had a great long visit with family.

Nate is too cute!! He looks like one very happy baby. Believe it or just gets more and more fun.

Happy 1/2 birthday, Nate!!
