6 Months Old!
One of the weirdest things about parenthood is time, which I've mentioned before. On the one hand every night feels like forever, and Forrest still needs constant attention. On the other hand, half a year has gone by already! He can really play with toys now and although he's not very mobile, every now and then I look over and he's rolled himself across the room! He continues to gain weight like a champ, probably thanks to all the midnight meals, although he only weighed in at 19 lbs 4 oz and I swear he feels like he's over 25 by now! He's been smiling and laughing for a long time, but just in the last couple weeks he seems to do it all the time. Sleep, diaper rash, and cradle cap continue to be the main topics of conversation around here but if those are our biggest health concerns then we're really pretty lucky. He loves to hang out with other babies, just watching them, grabbing them, and of course licking their heads. In another 6 months I hope he hasn't gained another 12 pounds, but I do hope he changes as much as he did in the first 6 months. People always say they miss babyhood so I'm sure I will but I'm also looking forward to him being more independently mobile!
