6 months

It's been awhile since I've written anything about our little Barty-warty. He is now a chubby little 6 month old. As I said before, I feel like these 6 months have gone by so fast. Bart is still a little angel child. He sleeps anywhere from 12 to 14 hours at night and takes 2 or 3 naps a day. He is a trooper wherever we go, whatever we are doing. Either just sitting quietly in the stroller or hanging out in the ergo. He has finally mastered the art of eating from a spoon and is currently enjoying rice cereal, bananas and sweet potatoes. Bananas are the clear winner as far as favorites go. He likes to "play" on the floor, and can roll both ways. Although, he seems to have forgotten how to roll from his stomach to his back, because he gets mad when he has had enough time on his tummy and refuses to just roll over to remedy the situation. He likes to talk/scream, view the world from his bumbo chair, have his big brothers play with him and make him laugh, to be tickled and given lots of lots of kisses, and to suck/chew on anything he can get a hold of.  He has been getting lots of attention from the ladies these days, and he seems to already know how to smile just so.  He has the softest, squishiest skin, I just can't get enough of it. I know I am just a teensy bit biased, but I am pretty sure that he is just about the cutest, sweetest little guy that ever was seen.  See...

This outfit was my brothers.  Cool huh?

We sure love this little guy.

Happy November 1st!!

Wow! I can't believe that it is already the first day of Novemeber. This year has flown by, and this semester has especially gone fast. This morning, we walked outside to go to the library, and the air was icy. We had to break out the hats and gloves for the first time today. Then as we walked past Columbia campus, they were putting up the Christmas lights!! I couldn't believe it. Seriously, is it really almost the Holiday season? Don't get me wrong, I love this time of year, and am already SO excited for it (I'm not gonna lie, I'm listening to Christmas music right now. It happened by accident, but it was nice, so I left it on. Don't judge), but it still feels like summer just ended. I mean, we just took our a/c units out like 2 weeks ago.

Anyway... I am excited for Thanksgiving, and the fun things we have planned. I will probably hold off on the Christmas music for a couple more weeks. Although I can't say that I appreciate Nate's bad attitude toward it, and that is not the reason I am holding off, by the way. Nate tends to be a bit of a scrooge when it comes to holidays in general, and it makes me a little sad (hint hint Nate).

I hope you all have a wonderful fall day!

P.S. I hate suckers. Could there be anything more sticky and gooey??
