6 months

I am enjoying every second I have with this boy! He is SO incredibly sweet, patient, & cute!! I love his face- I know he's not chubby at all, but I love his plump cheeks- we call him "Fat-fatty" all the time because of them :). I guess I should write about some of his milestones, huh??
At his Dr. appointment today he was 27in. tall and weighed 15lbs. He's on the same growth curve for height, but dropped a little in weight (I don't understand how that can happen! The kid eats like there's no tomorrow). Speaking of food, he loves rice cereal, sweet potatoes, carrots, green beans, and ANY kind of fruit. So far he doesn't like peas or corn, but we're working on it. His 1st tooth broke through this weekend & he's trying his hardest to scoot around on the floor. He started saying "Mama", but only says it when he's whining or sad- it's still pretty cute to hear him say it, though! He loves to hear his daddy sing- seriously, the kids face lights up & he can't stop smiling when Anthon sings to him. It's adorable to watch!
I seriously can't believe Sterling is half a year old already! He wasn't an infant for long was he?? & I'm betting his baby phase will go by just as quickly... he'll be a toddler before I know it! SO sad :(. I was thinking the other day about eternal families & how lucky I am to know that I will have mine forever. I love knowing that my children will always be mine! But then, I realized that my boys are going to be adults in the eternities, and it made me SO thankful for the chance I have to know them as children- the sweet, Innocent, adorable little boys that they are! That realization makes me want to cherish every little milestone, even more! This time with them is so precious, and I'm so thankful I have it to spend it with them!
