Little Dude’s 6-month lifestyle portraits

Little Dude turned 6 months old this week.  It’s such a bittersweet feeling. On one hand, I miss that tiny newborn we brought home from the hospital… so precious and fragile and new!  On the other hand, I LOVE this little baby boy and get excited about every milestone he reaches.

He’s been recovering from a cold the past couple of days, so his official 6 month portraits will probably happen next week. {Mommy & Daddy have been hammered with this cold, too. And we should be in the pics!}

With our household mood dimming down to “sick mode,” he still managed to learn a couple new things this week.

He now shakes his head “NO” – when we say no (i.e. ‘no fingers in your mouth’ ‘no, Coral!’ etc.) or when he doesn’t like something… smart little guy.  We decided it would be wise to start using “yes” more often, so we just started saying “yes you are”  or “yes I am!” and emphatically nodding our heads yes… Little Dude thinks this is hilarious and laughs about this new word: YES.

Besides that, he has learned to stick his little tongue out SUPER far and pant like a dog. At first we thought he was just hot or having a hard time breathing with his cold.  Now we are pretty sure he is thinking about his dogs (when they aren’t around). But he definitely does it when they are near him.  Too funny!

He’s super-happy in the morning…

I gave him a bottle so he could have a shot at feeding himself…

“two hands” momma says…

He is starting to enjoy frozen teethers more… before, I think he thought they were too cold.

He says “ooohh” a lot

There’s that tongue…

I think he’s saying “ya momma, stop blowing your nose. it’s getting annoying.”

Daddy Dude reading Little Dude about Monkeys not jumping on the bed… I’m sure he’ll never try that 😉
