Busiest boy! Now that he's figured out how to move, he never stops.
He's getting around with an army crawl. If he sees something he wants, or if I leave the room, he can make his way to it/after me.
Sitting up like a pro. He's figured out how to get from laying down to sitting up!
He's a climber! He loves climbing on me. Even when I'm holding him.
He's obsessed with dogs.
He loves eating too. Anything that isn't baby food is extremely disireable to him.
Still loves puffs, but prefers rice husks.
He's wild in his walker! Running and screaming all over the house.
He is sleeping great, he even puts himself down now!
He's in size 4 diapers and just about out of size 6-12 month pants and 9 month jammies.
He's getting so good at standing. He's still wobbly and needs support, but soon enough he'll be standing on his own?
He's so much more interactive and observant. He is really into mimicking too. And he just talks and talks. And screams. All baby jibberish of course.
He gives big, slobbery kisses too.

7 Months

Sitting up so well!
Standing assisted on things. Very assisted
Not really into crawling, he's good at scooting backwards.
Cruising in his walker! He goes around the house and then comes back to me when he's ready for more puffs.
He LOVES puffs.
He loves the bath too. He just sits and stares at and feels the water coming out of the faucet.
He's doing really well with sleep. He'll wake up 1 or 2 times a night. And most days he does great with 3 naps.
It's been a rough few weeks for teething. Soooo much drool!
Anywhere we go, he just wants to get down. He thinks he can run with the big kids.
He is loving assisted walking!
He's starting to be silly, I love it. I swear he has figured out how to fake laugh.
He talks and talks (just jibberish and groaning most of the time) he has so much to say.

6 Months

6 Months
70% Weight (18lbs 3oz) // 95% Length (29 1/4" long) // 50% Head (17 1/4")
Sitting up! Still a tiny wobbly, but pretty good on his own.
Starting to scoot around a little when he sees something he wants.
He's a pro and rolling.
We started a mommy and me class at The Little Gym and he loves it! He's one of the youngest in the class, and one of the biggest.
He loves to jump/bounce. Constantly. Whether he is in his jumper or you're holding him. He never stops moving. My arms get a great workout. 
We've added carrots and peas to the mix of food.
HE FINALLY HAS A SLEEPING SCHEDULE. A good sleeping schedule! I honestly never thought the day would come. He takes three 2 hour (give or take) naps a day, and is sleeping 11 hours at night! (He still wakes up once in the night to eat) Annnnnd he puts himself to sleep now! Seriously, it's a miracle! All three of us are much happier.
He giggles so much more now, I love it.
He's loving peek-a-boo.
He cries when Sean leaves for work and then cries if Sean doesn't pick him up right when he comes home.
He doesn't mind the car so much! He cries and wiggles when we go to put him in his car seat, but he usually settles down pretty quick. The way things were going two months ago, I would have never thought we would be driving around while he slept.
He loves paper. Especially receipts.
He thinks that anything I have is his. My phone, my food, my fountain drink cups with straws.
When he's tired, he rubs his face on my face, cutest thing.
He still loves to grab my face and hair. I don't know how I have any hair or skin left.
He's making more and more noises, it's so fun to talk to him. And he started grunting "uh-oh"! My heart can't even handle the cuteness of it. Insanely proud mama moment right there.

Playing video games with Uncle Evan.
I had my tonsils removed and my boys took great care of me! 

Hyde tried his first popsicle and thought that every time I had one he got one too.

Thank you, Auntie Jana, for the awesome print!

He's turned into quite the shopper.

Hyde experienced his first snow fall!

I told you he never stops jumping.

I like to watch him sleep.
