6 months

The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation. ~ Ray L. Wilbur

Half a year!  What the heck?

My little man had quite a busy sixth month. He is growing ever bigger, and more expressive.  **Update- Ephraim is 18 lbs 3.2 oz and 28.5 inches long.  That puts him in the 50th percentile for weight and the 95th percentile for height.

Ephraim is quite mobile.  He loves to army crawl and is very efficient at it. 
He's an adventurer and already wants to get all the things.  We are definitely in trouble with this one :-P.

He can sit up, but prefers to be on his tummy so he doesn't sit up for long.

He is making more sounds.  He says 'mom' when he is crying and occasionally says "dada" when he is happy.  This mama is not so sure what to think about that :-P

He's very ticklish all over, but after the initial laughter tends to get very mad when tickled.  He had better get used to the tickles though, because his daddy is not letting up any time soon (or mommy for that matter).

He's discovered blowing raspberries and does that frequently.  It's very cute.

Ephraim has two teeth now.  He handled teething pretty well, although he was a very sad baby at bed times.

Ephraim LOVES eating solid food.  That is definitely supposed to be in all caps.  He can't get enough of it.  So far we have tried oatmeal, bananas, applesauce, avacado, and sweet potatoes.  He enjoyed all of it except the avacodo.  He really didn't like the avocado.  I'm excited to start broadening my big six-month-old's horizons in the coming months.

What Ephraim loves most is people.  He especially loves to flirt with all the ladies. 
Ephraim enjoyed a visit with his Great-grandpa Davis on our Christmas road trip in December. 

Ephraim also enjoyed spending time with Grandma and Grandpa Ison and all of his Ison Uncles over Christmas.  It was an awesome first Christmas and he got very spoiled.

He especially loves bouncing in his new Jump-a-roo.

He's also experiencing his first cold weather.  He's not so sure what he thinks about that.

This child is very loved, and this mama is loving every minute of his crazy antics.  Thanks to everyone else who loves him as much as we do.
