TODAY MY SWEET babe is half a year old. *Insert sobbing emoji face*. But seriously, the past six months have literally flown by. I didn't manage to get a "Atticus five months" post done so consider this a recap on the past two months with our littlest boy.
Atticus is smiling left, right and center. He is SO expressive and his eyes go into these little half moons when he is smiling big. He coos and tries to mimic the sounds you make (so naturally I say "mama mama mama" to him all day long ;-) ) He gets so excited when Dada walks in the door, immediately smiling big and kicking his little legs in excitement! He also LOVES watching Finny and smiles and giggles at him all day long.
We have nicknamed him Grabicus because he is so fast and will have the glasses off of your face or a fist full of hair before you have a moment to stop him. He is rolling all the time and is so close to crawling.
Much to Finny's dismay he has started to take an interest in all of the toys, not just the "baby" toys, so we are learning a lot about sharing and taking turns these days.
He has started eating solids and is such a champ. He still nurses four times a day (every four hours) and is eating a small breakfast and then a big lunch and dinner. Meal time is one of my favourite times of day since both boys are at the table and we talk for about 30 minutes while we all eat, such a special time of getting to know both my boys even better.
He travels really well in the car and we have done multiple trips to cottages and to Montreal! He even got to go on his first boat ride a few weeks ago (which he cried and then fell asleep through haha)
Atticus is a MASTER SLEEPER. He is officially sleeping 13 hours at night + two 2 hour naps during the day. We are all feeling rested and mostly back to normal, and I am so excited to move him into the boys room soon!
Atti boy, we love you so very much. I am so proud of you and I love getting to know you better and better every day!
