6 months

I took Callan's 6 month pictures the day after he turned 6 months, but here I am posting them just one week before he turns 7 months.  
Where has the time gone?!  

These pictures are appropriate - Callan does not stay still.  He's constantly on the move.  Always reaching for something, even if it's out of his reach.  His favorite things to grab?  Cell phones, remote controls, water bottles, and the dog's toys.

Callan, please stop growing up so fast.

At Callan's 6 month check up {he was 6 months, 16 days old}, he weighed in at 15 lbs 7 oz and measured 26 inches.  He doesn't see the Dr. again until August.

Callan is sitting up on his own like an old pro, has graduated to big boy baths {always supported} and loves it - he's quite the water slapper, plays well by himself, wakes only once a night for a little "snack", LOVES music {especially Lady A} and car commercials, has a stuffed elephant named Ernie, enjoys sweet potatoes, takes 3-4 naps a day, is on our schedule {this is both a good thing and a bad thing}, adores his Ellie, reaches for and grabs faces, spends a lot of his time gnawing on his toys, loves being outside, army crawls {albeit awkwardly}...

I love my boy to no end.  He is a very special answer to prayer, years of prayer.  I love the little boy that he is becoming.  So full of spunk and personality.  
I am amazed by him, and by Him. 

I feel complete.
