A Moment In Time...Back to School 2012

And just like that...6 months old.

My Beautiful Baby Boy is 6 months old.

It's a perfect example of the age old, "Treasure these moments, you have no idea how quickly they go". In so many ways, Nixon seems like he has been part of our family forever, he just fit right in, from the very beginnning-knowing his role as "Child #3", and being perfectly happy waiting for me to finish dealing with his much less patient brother and sister.

  So, since I can't seem to get my act together and blog on a regular basis, and some days, I'm just not quite witty enough to come up with anything worth sharing, this is the post I have to make. Being the third, I know that Nixon's baby book it going to be lacking...
Who am I kidding, it seems that is something I suck at, so ALL of my kids will likely be disappointed with my lack of documentation of their early years.

  But, regardless, this counts as effort, so at six months old, my Happy Go Lucky little man has reached many milestones, and is still waiting for a few, just so Mama can enjoy what might be my very last experience with a baby!

Nixon Daniel Spencer
6 Months Old
14 lbs 10 oz
Sitting up on his own, babbling non stop,usually waking up once in the night to eat.
 Had his first taste of food (Home made brown rice cereal) on October 12, 2012, and his very first bottle (of breastmilk) on October 10, when I left all 3 kids at home with Daddy for the first time!

Nixon has the most laid back personality, he smiles so much, makes amazing eye contact, and loves to watch his siblings run wild. He is flipping himself from front to back, and uses that to move himself around a room, or to reach toys he wants.

He loves to be held by almost anyone, but he is a Mama's Boy, which may or may not be something I enjoy just a little too much :)

No teeth yet!

I have had such an amazing 6 months with this adorable little man, and I wish time would slow down so that I could enjoy these baby days that much longer. Although, who knows, with a personality like his, maybe he can help me convince Cody that one more would be a good thing.

Just when I think I'm getting the hang of this gig...

Sometimes the slow cooker works better if you plug it in. Pouring coffee isn't something you should multi task, and a 3 year old should never be left alone with a 2 year old and an orange marker. Today is just full of lessons learned, and it's only 11 am.

My Fat Pants...

Can I brag about being back in my pre-pregnancy jeans if they are actually the jeans I wore 2 pregnancies ago, when I hadn't lost the weight from my first pregnancy?

Yes? Ok, good.

How about if my muffin top spilling out over the top of these jeans is semi-covered by a nice jacket? Still good to go?

Alright,what if I have to undo the top button to sit, walk, breathe or talk on the phone, and the second I close the front door, I peel them off and put pajamas on?

You know what? I'm gonna count it. So, yay for me, I'm back in my too tight, fat squeezing pre-pregancy jeans. Yippee!
