6 month old baby update

It is hard to believe that baby Colt is already SIX months old...half way to one! I'm not sure if he will ever be referred to as any name other than "Baby Colt" or "my little buddy" because well, he's my baby & my buddy and that's the only way I know him!

But before I had him, all the Mamas I knew told me to cherish every moment because it goes by in the blink of an eye. And it's true. Babies change so quickly and somehow my little man is now sitting up, has two teeth and is (almost!) sleeping through the night.

Now that we've reached the six month mark, I finally feel like we have a schedule down.  We are almost always on the go, so even though it's not very rigid, it is really nice to have a rough outline for how our day is gonna go. Don't get me wrong, I still feel like a hot mess a lot of the time. If we are out of our pajamas, all fed (baby, myself & animals included!) and out the door by 9, I feel so accomplished. ha! & I only have ONE! So I can't imagine how Mama's of multiples do it!

Baby Colt absolutely loves being in our Ergo 360 Carrier. I'm a HUGE fan of baby wearing! Mostly because it keeps him happy and close by while allowing me to tackle all my to-do's. When Colt was brand new, we used the heck out of our Moby Wrap and it was hands down my favorite! As he got a little heavier though, we switched over to the Ergo Carrier & haven't looked back! I usually face him outward in it because he loves to be able to see what's goin' on and it makes getting things done around the house so much easier. (I will be sharing more on why we chose to go with an Ergo carrier next week!)

We have started him on solids and that boy can eat! Teething has been ROUGH but his little gummy smile has officially been changed into a little two-teeth smile and it is my favorite :)
As a SAHM, days can really start to blend so we make it a point to get out of the house atleast once a day. Whether on a walk, to run errands or simply take a stroll around the mall or Target! We also love our Baby Playgroups where he gets to interact with his little friends and I get to sneak in some conversation with the Mamas that have to do with something other than spit-up, diapers and singing the same song for the hundredth time ;)

This season of life is by far my favorite. I know I always say it, but being a Mama is the best thing that has ever come my way. I am so grateful that I am able to share my journey and learn alongside others here who are experiencing the same special moments each day with their little ones. It truly is such a gift!

I wish you all a wonderful weekend & thank you so much for stopping by!
