6 months old!

Hulk is 6 months old today! How crazy is that?

He is doing great. He now loves being on his tummy (sometimes) and will 'swim' on the carpet. He loves the dogs - they totally crack him up. He wants to be sitting all the time, and anything that comes within his reach (and he has a LONG reach) he grabs and deposits in his mouth. He sleeps through the night (thank god) - Aaron and I have learned that once he starts rubbing his eyes, up to bed or a meltdown ensues. But he'll go to bed around 7 and then wake up between 6 and 7 AM. No complaints here! He is wearing 12 month clothing, and I've think this weekend I need to go out and get some new toys - 'baby' toys aren't cutting it anymore.

For the record, I didn't go back to bed yesterday (although the bad day continued, it just wasn't an option). I did get a pedicure, which helped a bit. Aaron picked up Hulk from daycare, and of course, the night he has him, Hulk fell asleep in the car and continued to sleep in his swing until after I got home. The good news is - one more week of Aaron coaching soccer and I won't be on my own at night 3 days a week anymore! Hurrah! It isn't that I cant take care of him alone - it's just nice to have someone else around so I can, I don't know, go to the bathroom without crankypants crying? Or start dinner before 8 PM?

Happy weekend everyone!

Happy *late* 6 months to Hulk, mom AND dad! Hulk is a sleeping CHAMP! Maybe he'll teach the others how to sleep, wouldn't THAT be amazing?!
Sorry your bad day didn't get any better. Glad you got to get a pedicure, though.

That was the same thing we had to do with E. As soon as he rubbed his eyes immediately to bed or else the same screaming fit would develop.
