Big Boy Business

As a parent, you try to remember you child's first this or that. You document and photograph every. waking. moment. No, just me? I didn't think so.

C is now 6 months old and throughout the last 6 months, there have been many firsts and with each one I've made a fool of myself with the amount of praise and excitement I've associated with each milestone.

However, in the last month there has been one milestone that makes me happier than any other. Yes, it was so great when he started holding his big head up on his own. I loved watching him roll and discover things from his tummy. But without a doubt, I love that he can now sit up on his own with little to no assistance. Connor is now in the Big Boy Business.

I am sure to a little babe, the world looks completely different from this point of view. He sits and looks around and just takes it all in. Being the nosy baby he is, I am sure he is really enjoying life nowadays.

This new position also allows us to get a better look at those chubby legs and arms. Those were hard earned in this household.

Oh of course, there are those big eyes I love so much! They are a hazel color and I hope they stay that way. Everyone comments on how big and bright his eyes are.

I know so much is going to change. He will be crawling before we know it. There is going to be a time when he is too busy to sit down for more than a minute so until our lives are controlled by a mobile baby, I'm going to enjoy just sitting around, taking in the world.


  1. It's always exciting when our babies learn new things!

  2. Sitting up was so great, I agree! More toys to play with that way....can see everything....cute pics to take :)) He looks so dang cute in those stripes!
