Sam is Six Months Old!!

Today I took Sam to his six month check-up.  The little man is growing so much!  He weighs 17 lbs, 7 oz (49%), is 27” long (71%), and his little head is 17” round (33%). 

What is the little man up to?

Sam is sitting up so well now!  He can sit for a long amount of time.  I think he loves seeing the world from this new position.  Yesterday I let him ride in the car at the grocery store with Reese for a little while.  He was smiling and laughing the whole time.  He didn’t make it the entire time but I know once he is better at sitting longer they will love riding together.


His bottom two teeth will be coming in any time now.  He has had a couple of bad days with his mouth hurting.  He is a drooling machine and has a runny nose.  I feel so bad for him and all I can do to help him is hold him.  He will chew on any thing that is near his mouth.


Yesterday at the park I put Sam in the swing next to Reese for the first time.  He LOVED it.  He smiled and giggled while looking for his giggling sister.


He is super inquisitive.  He reaches and tries to grab anything that passes near him.  At the doctors office she had a hard time listening to his heart because he kept reaching for the stethoscope.  He is constantly trying to grab the spoon when I am feeding him and this makes for a big mess sometimes.


This little guy is such a flirt.  He will smile at any one who looks at him.  He is such a happy little guy!


I am behind in posting this but last Sunday we had Sam dedicated at church.  Us being the fabulous parents that we are forgot our camera.  My mom brought hers though so hopefully I can get copies of those soon. 

Sam is such a special blessing to our sweet little family! 

Happy Half Birthday, Sammy!!
