6 Months!

Goodness. Tomorrow marks half a year.  So, so fast..

First, it needs to be noted that we made it to summer.  Now, I get three precious months of my little sweetheart.  I know we're going to fly through it, so I'm trying to make the most of each day.  In the short week we've been off, he's already changing into quite the little person.

He's mastered sitting up.  He's definitely opinionated too.  If he wants something, he has a little squeal until he gets what he wants.  Most of the time, that is something just out of his reach or he wants to be facing the world. We have also started solid foods.  So far, he's really into oranges and loves play time with spaghetti. (For those interested in the highly debated baby food introduction/timing, this is what we're using. It fits nicely into my "go-with-the-flow" attitude, and he seems to be adapting well).

This week, we got to spend a week with Dad and the Glasgow family.  The family rented out a cottage and we had a fun-filled week in Michigan's beautiful Upper Peninsula.  We were a bit hesitant to go, as we were at the Pediatrician's an hour before we left to find that the little man had two ear infections and pink eye.  Luckily, he's a trooper and a happy baby.  He didn't let that slow him down and was quickly back to himself.

It really was a beautiful vacation.  My brother-in-law's favorite vacation was always in the UP.  It was nice to spend the week together as a family and remember him through all of the gorgeous scenery. We don't take many vacations, so it really was a nice treat.  The lodge easily fit all of us, without remotely feeling suffocated (which is hard to do with 17 people).  We even could all sit at the dinner table together!

Now, we have a brief week before we move into our house.  I'm so excited to spread out, gain a bathroom (!!!) and start making our home feel like ours.  While we're really front-loading the summer, I can't wait to be in the house so we can relax and enjoy the beautiful weather.
