Halfway to o-n-e

Well, here we are. Carter is SIX months old. What?! You have so much personality.

I knew the day would come when you wouldn't want to sit for your monthly pictures. That day has come. You are determined to stand all the time!

We did get some cute ones though. You are so big!

This month has been full of firsts. You went to your first bonfire and were mesmerized!

You also popped your first tooth and are quickly working on the second.

Much to my delight, you also threw your first temper tantrum when I wouldn't let you eat the packaging from your new bottles.

You also went to the zoo for the first time. You loved the funny flamingos and jumped when the elephants trumpeted, but didn't cry. 

You love to stand all the time, refuse to sit, and will be cruising far too soon.

You still enjoy reading, but insist on turning the pages yourself.

And you love, love, love to eat. You handle the spoon yourself, but fingers are your favorite.

You continue to be my joyful, curious little man.

And my favorite? You said "Mamaw" for the first time. You actually started on Daddy's birthday, but I waited to tell him until the day after. ;) Love you, sweet boy!

What's new this month:
-He is rolling and scooting all over the place, both directions
-He said "mama" for the first time, even though he isn't sure what it means yet. It's still cute!
-He is determined to stand all day long, so we retired his baby swing
-He has tried 20 fruits, veggies, and grains
-He is pushing 20 pounds and threatening to outgrow his fall clothes before he's ever worn them all
-He popped his first tooth!
