Happy Half Birthday!!!

Dear Brady,
Today you are six months old. It feels like it was yesterday that we brought you home. Mommy and daddy suck in every second we get to spend with you. All three of us laugh together every single day and we have you to thank for that.

You are such a lovable little guy! You love everyone you meet (except those people wearing scary glasses!) You love to flirt with the girls and are so enthralled by men. You watch Daddy's every move.
You are taking so much in. ! It only takes one time for you to see something and you do it! Grandma made the mistake of showing you how to crawl, and you have done it ever since! Mommy thinks your first word is going to be Target.

That lizard tongue of yours is always hanging out.

You love to hang with the big guys. Daddy too.

You take food seriously.
You get excited at the sight of a bottle, or even a spoon!
You had your FIRST big boy bath in the big bathtub. You were not so sure at first, but starting splashing, all while holding onto the side of the tub! Can't be too careful I guess!You smile lights up a room, and fills our hearts.
Everything goes into your mouth. Everything!

You are so strong! You can sit up for a long time now,
but even though you want to you are not quite ready to get up and go.
You look at things so intently. Books are one of your favorites. Especially ones you can eat!
Mommy already thinks you are going to be a genius!
This is by far your favorite activity. You jump up and down and squeal in delight.
You try to get every part of it in your mouth, and we could watch you play in it for hours!
You stand up so tall and laugh so loud!
Lily (dogs in general) would be your favorite toy hands down, only if she would let you.
She is getting better at understanding that she needs to be gentle with you.
She loves when you puke way more than we do!
You watch her every move and your face lights up with pure joy when she gets near you.
You are doing so many more things! You are experimenting with cause and effect, respond and turn your head when we call your name, laugh at silly games and voices, jump up and down in the exersaucer, roll from front to back, and back to front, eat your feet, move toys from one hand to another, and look for things when they disappear. You roll to your tummy in your crib, and wake up each morning smiling and talking. It is the best part of my day!
If only you could learn that we SLEEP at night.

Brady, I look at you everyday and find 100 more reasons why I am thankful to have you in my life. You have taught me more in six months than I have learned in 31 years. You bring pure joy to our lives and each day only gets better. You make our world complete.

Love,

Mommy and Daddy
