Maddox {Six Months}

I am SO behind on this! I didn't post a five months post (I know... shame shame).  So I'm combining five and six months into one.  I've been so busy with training for my new part time job at a gym (woohoo) and trying to start my Photography and Graphic Design business back up all while keeping up with Maddox... spreading myself a bit thin.  However, I won't apologize for the cuteness overload that this post contains ;) Pictures Pictures Pictures!

Six MonthsWeight: 21lbs 12.5oz (Holding strong in the 97%) 
    *I had to take him to the doctor today for a icky cough and he now weighs 23lbs. hah
Height: 27in (75%)
Size: 6-9 months clothes.

Five and Six months came and went SO fast that I'm having a hard time remembering what happened when lol
~We've gotten a few laughs out of him and it's just the sweetest sound ever.  First one was on March 2.
~Was diagnosed with impetigo on his face but it turned out it was just eczema.
~Typically awake by 7am and takes a 2 hour nap a couple hours later.
~LOVES to be outside
~Has had peaches, pears, apples, bananas, green beans, squash, sweet potatoes, carrots, prunes, and apples with mango and rice cereal.  Basically loves anything you feed him. First gave him cereal on March 4.
~Loves the swings at the playground.  Tried it for the first time on April 8.
~Has a thing for fabric and while he's drinking his bottle, he'll rub a burp cloth (or whatever is in his hand) over his face.
~Started sleeping with his stuffed giraffe at naptime and he likes to have it in front of his face (much to my dismay).
~When he is fussy or crying, he will typically settle down if I sing to him (bless him because it's not a pleasant noise lol)
~Sometimes the sound of the hairdryer is the only thing that will get him to sleep.
~Fake coughs. Although I may be taking him in tomorrow for a real cough that I'm not liking the sound of. :(
~Such a flirt with anyone that will talk sweet to him.
~Will follow every bite of food to your mouth in a pretty pitiful way.
~Got his DOC band for plagiocephaly on April 20.  If you are unfamiliar with this... it basically happens because babies now sleep on their backs and they may prefer one side so their head flattens at one part so the DOC band will help to round his head back out as he grows.
~We are having to do neck exercises for Torticollis which is another issue from him preferring one side.  Just means his neck is really tight on one side so we have to help to stretch it out.
~He still hates tummy time.
~He'll sit up for a seconds and getting better.
~Can roll over but is lazy.
~Started sleeping on his side
~Blows raspberries and drools a LOT.

Crazy how fast they grow

Still can't believe he was that little

Thanks to Leigh Gibson for her awesome artwork on the DOC band :) If your baby has to wear a DOC band (and you are in the Charlotte-ish area)... do yourself a favor and get Leigh to paint it for you! Makes it so much easier on the eyes.  She also does amazing murals in homes so if that's what you are looking for... contact her!

Put me in coach :)

I love this...

Sweet blue eyed baby :)

I'm not sure whose facial expression I like more lol

I love this! He loves to swing!
