About Me

My photo
I have two kids - a girl and a boy - and live in north-central Minnesota, land of snow and ice. Well, for 9 months of the year, that is. I work full-time for a local government, and on my "free time" I enjoy cooking, baking, hanging out with my kiddos, and RELAXING.

Easton: Six Months

Vital Stats
Easton weighs 19.5 pounds and is 28 inches. Mommy pulled out the 12-month jammies yesterday! He is getting so big!

Milestones This Month
Easton is a fairly proficient roller, and can almost sit unassisted. Mommy has seen him get up on his hands and knees only once, so it will take a lot more time and practice before he is crawling.

There was an unfortunate waking-in-the-middle-of-the-night phase that lasted about two weeks. After that there was an almost-as-bad waking-before-the-crack-of-dawn phase. Mommy finally figured out that yes, Easton CAN hear her walking around at 5:20 a.m. and put a big, noisy fan in his room. The first morning after that he slept until 7:30 and Mommy sang praises to Jesus.

Easton is almost ready for stage 2 baby foods. If he knew it was coming he would probably be excited! He appears to be very tired of the same old, same old sweet potatoes and bananas. How about some variety, Mom? Easton eats three meals a day, with an occasional mid-morning and/or mid-afternoon bottle, and a bottle before bed.

Easton babbles!! This is new for Mommy because big sister Natalie almost never babbled, and certainly not at this age. Mommy loves hearing Easton’s “dadadadadada”! Easton is also a master at expressing excitement, especially when it’s time for a bottle. It’s a perfect mix of anxiety and anticipation: “Give it to me NOW, Momma. NOW, NOW, NOW!” (Cue waving/grasping hands and frantic expression.)

Play Time
Easton is playing with toys on the floor more and more, much to Natalie’s dismay. Yesterday Mommy told Natalie she had to let Easton play with some of her toys, and, with a very concerned look on her face, she stared at him from the corner of her eye. Easton also still enjoys his bouncer and jumperoo, but he isn’t as content for as long as he used to be. Much more like how Natalie always was: ready to be on the move!
