Dear Shepherd (6 Months)


Dear Shepherd,

I was wrong. You don't weigh 20lbs yet. "Just" 18 lbs 13 oz (75%). I distinctly remember your sister weighing around the 19 lbs mark at TWELVE MONTHS - you've definitely surpassed her! Just know to my feeble arms you are one chunky monkey. You are however in the 90% for height which is a whopping 27.3 inches! You are one tall boy who never stops growing.This is such a fun age. I am loving every day with your sweet, happy, laid-back personality.

  • You a rolling everywhere! Seriously, I think you could roll to China.
  • You go to bed happy, sleep 10-12 hours at night, and wake up happy. 
  • You still take 3, 2 -hour naps a day.
  • We have started solid foods and mommy is surprising all of us with her baby culinary skills. So far, you have tried bananas, avacado, sweet potatoes, and green beans in addition to your cereal and oatmeal. You love everything you eat. But especially love bananas and sweet potatoes. We just have to take it easy on the bananas....ok, ok! I won't talk about you being const  , digestionally challenged.
  • Your mouth is like a bee's antenna. You feel everything out by chewing on it first. 
  • You are still in size 3 diapers during the day but I'm thinking it's time to move up to size 4 for nighttime diapers. Let's just say that no one is happy when you leak through at 3:00 a.m.
  • You still love your Praise Baby!
  • You jump and jump and jump in your jump-a-roo
  • You now know what grass is. You're welcome. I finally took you outside since it had cooled down below 10,000 degrees. You love being outside almost as much as your sister.
  • You are wearing mostly 12 month clothes since most 9 month clothes are too tight because of your long torso.
  • You still think your daddy hung the moon, your sister writes the best songs ever sung, and your mama snuggles better than anybody!
  • Our greatest prayer for you is that the Lord would call you to himself that you would Know Him, and Love Him, and Serve Him. 
  • You are a handsome picture of the Lord's delight every minute of the day.
Happy Half Birthday, Shepherd Andrew. There has never been a more loved 6 month old little boy than you!
