Slow and Steady Wins the Race

6 months old

on February 18, 2012

A friend of mine once explained why time seems to move so much faster as you get older. I have forgotten the reason. I just know that it is true. I don’t know how it is possible that Cole is already 6 months old.

He is the most laid back child to ever inhabit the earth. Seriously.

He had RSV this past month and you would have barely known he was sick except for the fact that he was wheezing! He didn’t complain except when you sucked the snot out of his nose or wanted to do the breathing treatment (who wants a plastic mask over their face). The kid is the poster child for MELLOW. We are so lucky.

He is happy. Always happy. Except when you want to suck the snot out of his nose (can’t blame him).

Cole loves playing with his feet, chewing on  your hand/his hand/anyone’s hand, chewing on his teething key ring, standing up!, nursing, sleeping with Mommy, talking and watching the world around him.

Cole hates sleeping alone, napping, solids (yes, all of them) and having his face cleaned.

One of the things that I have found funny is that he has hit his rolling milestones on holidays. He rolled from belly to back on New Year’s Eve and from back to belly on Valentine’s Day (faux holiday). I predict crawling on St. Patrick’s Day.

6 month stats:
Weight: 14 pounds 6.5 ounces
Height: 25 inches

    Hi Ann!

    Cole is absolutely angelic and your photography is amazing. I haven’t run much in over a year, sincewe bought a (Short Sale) home last summer (read: needs lots o’ work!) and going back into a HS classroom FT in September (read: exhausted ALL the time). I find even less time to blog/read blogs, but I do love to peek in and see how life is treating you!

    Happy 6 months!

    Hugs from Orlando, well Apopka, these days……

      Hey Robin!!

      I have been wondering how you are doing. I can only imagine how exhausting teaching HS is and am in awe of your ability to deal with HS kids :). Congrats on your house purchase! Hope all the projects are coming together. Thanks for saying hello and your kind compliments on my photography. I am still working on it. Do you have a different blog you update every now and then? The turtles one hasn’t been active for a quite a while…
