Dear Nathan (6 Months Old)

Dear Nathan,

You are half a year old!  It's unbelievable to me that you have been in our life that long, yet impossible for me to remember what life was like without you.

You are so much fun right now - starting to really show a personality, which includes an insatiable curiosity about everything.  You love food.  So far, your favorites are pretty much any fruit we give you, sweet potatoes, and carrots.  You eat the greens, but you don't love them yet.  Hopefully you will in time.  You aren't saying too many real words yet, but you love to talk!  Mostly you say sounds over and over when you like them.  Current favorites are mmmmmmm, nnnnngoo, and linglingling.  That last one is usually said when you have your pacifier in your mouth.  It's kind of hilarious, actually.

Your skin goes through phases where it breaks out with the eczema for a few days, then we treat it and it goes away, and we have a few weeks of clear skin until it breaks out again.  Nothing as bad as that first outbreak, thankfully.

You are also showing lots of curiosity toward the dogs right now, which is great.  Kaylee loves the extra attention and Simon doesn't quite know what to think.  He'll come around, though.

Your favorite toys right now are your exersaucer and anything that talks or sings to you.  You love the crib soother that looks like an aquarium, which makes us think maybe we need to get an aquarium and some fish for you to watch.

Check out this comparison collage - 1 month to 6 months.  You've done a lot of growing, my love!
