Madden is 6 Months

Where did the past 6 months go? Madden is getting so big everyday and changing so much we can hardly believe it.  Here is just a little update on what he is like.  

I'm proud to say that he is finally sleeping through the night.  It took a few months longer than I was hoping, but he is now going from about 7:30 pm to 6:00 am.  His first tooth came in right on his 5 month birthday and we can see his second one about to pop.  Rolling over is his favorite thing to do. You lay him down for one second and he is right on this tummy, rolling to the other side of the family room.  Since my last update he hadn't started day care, but at 4 months he started going to day care with Skylar.  The first few weeks were a bit of an adjustment for him.  He wasn't sleeping well and all the noise and constant stimulation from the kids was a lot in the beginning but he is doing great now and really seems to be enjoying it there.  He has already learned to hold his own bottle which is so helpful and he is very close to crawling as he scoots all over the floor when he is down playing with his toys.  He still isn't sitting up on his own, so that is the next thing we are hoping to see him do.  

He is a food machine as he is taking down big bowls of oatmeal with bananas, peas, squash, carrots, and sweet potatoes.  He is growing out of his clothes so much faster than Skylar did, as 9 months is what fits him best now.

His has the best personality!  He is always showing you his big gummy smile.  He just loves for his voice to he heard as he will make really loud squealing noises and his laugh is to die for.  Skylar is still his favorite person, as whenever she talks to him or he hears her voice he gives her the biggest smile.  

We are looking forward to seeing what the next three months bring us with our Mad Man!!  

We had a little celebration for his 6 month birthday with the traditional cake and candle.  He was in a bad mood as he had a cold and didn't want to be sitting in his high chair for cake or pictures.

  1. Madden has a super BIG smile, and he smiles so easily! He is so social and seems to love everybody. (Too bad he wasn't interested in his cake with us all coaxing him to smile.)
    You're right; Skylar and Madden don't look too much alike. We'll see what happens in the next months. Of course, they are happy, lovely little children.
    We are so blessed to have 5 beautiful, healthy grandchildren.
    Love,Grand-ma and Grand-pa
