6 Month Pics

Dear Jaxon,
6 months old, where has the time gone? Before you know it we will be getting ready to celebrate your 1st birthday, and I will be getting ready to go back to work. Before we even start to think about that though, we are going to have a great summer together and we still have to find you a babysitter.
The past month has been a busy one. I am not sure what all we have done, but I do know that I am not sure were the time has gone. You celebrated your first Valentine’s day this past month, and you spent the day with your Gammie and Gampy while your mommy and daddy went out on a date. You also helped Hadleigh celebrate her 1st birthday and your auntie Cara celebrate her 26th birthday. You and I also spend your first Family Day together, but daddy had to work so he could not share the day with us.
We have also started to go swimming with some of your friends. The first time we went we went to Hanover with Reed and Jayden and then we have gone to Wingham a couple of times since. You have gone swimming with Hadleigh, Tyson and Luke. You are really starting to like it. We usually take some of your bath toys along with us and you laugh and splash and have a wonderful time. You will be starting swimming lessons soon, so it is a good thing that you like the water.
You also send your Wednesday afternoons at baby group with a whole bunch of your friends. We go there to talk about different topics on a weekly basis, and you love when it comes time to leave because we will sit around in a circle and sing songs before we go. You have continued your love for music, and every time you hear it you will stop whatever it is that you are doing and just listen. You have also started to like to dance. You cannot do this on your own yet, but you love it when I move and shake you to the music. I am hoping that with this love so early in life you will have better rhythm then your father does.
You continue to be an excellent sleeper and let mommy and daddy sleep through the night.
You have started to eat solids this past week. I have been trying to get you to eat cereal for about 2 months know, but have had not luck with it. You would not take the spoon in your mouth, and when I do get it in there you will just spit it all out. Someone suggested to me yesterday at baby group to add fruit with it, and you seem to like it a lot better know. I still have a difficult time getting the spoon in your mouth, but have found a secret way to trick you. You have also started to eat some veggies, and don’t seem to mind them at all.
Well Monkey, you are an ever changing little boy, and my days with you seem to go by way too fast. I love you more and more each day, if that is at all possible!!!!
