My Dearest Fynnlan,
Tomorrow you turn 6 months old, and I can hardly stand it! It seems like just yesterday we were bringing you home from the hospital. You have brought such joy to our family. I've said it before, but I never knew I could love a little boy so much. You definitely have a very special place in my heart.
You absolutely love your Papi and always seek him out in the room to just stare and smile at him. You also love Alynne too. She makes you giggle, and she cares for you so well.
You are just about the sweetest little boy. You are always smiling and love to snuggle. Most of the time you are happy, except from about 7-8pm haha.
You sleep so well! You sleep 12 hours at night and take 3 long naps during the day. Whenever you sleep, you suck your thumb, and it melts my heart every time. I could watch you sleep forever!!
You are still nursing well, and you tolerate the bottle when needed. Yesterday you got to try avocado for the first time! It was a bit too mushy for you to handle well, but you did like what you tasted. I can't believe it's already time for you to start eating solids! You're getting so big.
I feel like milestones always happen in waves. I feel you growing up more than ever this week. Along with eating solids now, you have also started some pre-crawling. You can scoot sideways and backwards (quite far), and now you have started getting up on your knees and rocking. You are so ready to be on the move and able to keep up with your big sister! I've had to start making sure small pieces are out of your reach because we never know where you'll end up now! The other day you were playing by the couch while I was sitting on the kitchen table chair. A few minutes later, I looked down and you were underneath my chair!
Some of your favorite things to play with right now are some mini books, shakers, and a taxi. You also love whenever Aly tickles you; it's not hard to make you laugh!
You are getting so big! You currently wear size 3 diapers and 6-9 month clothes. You have 2 bottom teeth that are bulging and ready to pop through! We had your 6 month check up this week, and I was convinced that you were such a huge baby and you would be tipping the scales. Well, you weigh 16 lbs 11 oz, which is only 25th percentile haha. I suppose it's still a lot bigger than Aly was though! However, you are 26.5 in tall, which is 60%! Woah, tall boy!
These last 6 months have been so wonderful with you. I can't wait to see you grow, learn, and continue to develop! God has blessed us immensely with you, and we are so grateful for you sweet Fynn!
