Happy Half Birthday Brayden B!

My baby is 6 months old! It’s seriously crazy how fast time flies. But, what’s even crazier is how much one little person can change in 6 months. He went from being a little blob who did nothing but cry, sleep, eat, and poop to a little man who can smile, laugh, roll over, almost crawl, and jump. Well, he still eats and poops a lot, but now he has such a huge personality!

We went to the doctor yesterday and Brayden is 18 pounds and 14 ounces, which is only in the 80th percentile. He is 28 1/4″ long, which is the 95th percentile. And his head is 18″, which is also the 95th percentile, but that’s because he has a big brain!

I did a list of Brayden’s likes and dislikes a couple of months ago and I’m going to do that again this month.

Likes:

Trying to crawl

Bath time

Eating rice cereal

Spitting rice cereal all over the place

The breeze

Flying

His brother

Five Little Monkeys

Getting Tickled

JUMPING in his jungle jumper

Owen and Emma

Photo shoots with Mom

Obama

UCLA Football!

Admiring himself in the mirror

The Olympics!

His grandparents

Dislikes

Trying to crawl

Sitting Up

Elmo

Getting his nails clipped

Gas

Being in his car seat for too long

Anything USC

He’s still a really happy little guy for the most part. He’s getting harder to entertain and needs my constant attention, which makes getting any work done during the day next to impossible. I’m learning to really take advantage of any free time I have and get work done and not surf on the web!

I know what you all are going to ask. Where are the chair pictures? Here are the problems I have with the chair. He’s way too big to lay on it and he’s nowhere near sitting up. What I will probably do is put it in the background the next time I find a good place to take his picture. I’m going to try to do it next week, but I’m SO crazy busy right now that I’m not so sure that’s going to happen. We’ll see. For now, here is a photo shoot I just did with Brayden last week while he was trying to crawl.

He starts out happy…

And this is how he ends up after a few minutes

So then he goes into his jumper

And then after a few minutes he gets sick of his jumper and starts to roll around again

Happy 6 month birthday B! I love you!

    This is totally my nephew who will be 6 months on Friday! He’s finally learned to roll over and when he does he tries to push himself up, only to get tired and cry and drool all over the floor! Aren’t they just amazing? I love that Brayden loves UCLA. He’s such a smart boy. It must be because of that big brain of his =).
