6 Months (and 3 weeks)

James turned 6 months... three weeks ago!  Haha!  I know, I know.  I've been so busy, that I totally forgot to post about his 6 month birthday!  He is growing so fast and is such a happy baby!  When we took his 6 month pictures, he had a rash on his chin that we weren't sure where it came from.  Luckily, it went away the next day :)
At 6 months, James weighed 16 lbs and 6 ounces and was 28 inches long!  He is wearing 6-9 month clothing but is very close to having to go up a size due to his long body!  He is still the sweetest little boy I know and loves to read books, play in his activity bouncer, and squeal for mommy and daddy!  He is eating so much ALL THE TIME!  He is eating about 35 ounces of formula with two meals each day.  He has oatmeal with apples in the morning and a vegetable at night.  We are upping his meals to three a day today so we will see how that goes!  So, far he likes green beans, apples, and peas.  He does not like carrots but will tolerate them enough to eat them when he's hungry :)
He is sitting up on his own for the most part but will tumble over after a while.  He loves being outside and being pushed in his stroller :)
Just yesterday at daycare, they told me how much he loves the song "Old McDonald" and how he tries to imitate the animal noises!  He is such a smart boy!
Here are some more recent pictures of James so you can see the many faces he has

Being a mommy to James is more and more fun each day.  I look forward to waking up each morning to his toothless grin and seeing the excitement on his face when I pick him up from daycare.   Just when we think it couldn't get any better than this, he surprises us again with so much joy!
