Six Months Old! | Harold

Six Months Old, baby, baby boy, six month old baby

We are a couple of weeks late in posting this but Harold is SIX MONTHS OLD! It's so wild how quickly half of a year has gone by. He is so different than he was when he was first born (of course he is) and he's really starting to become a little person. I can see his sense of humor developing and all he wants to do is get up and move around.  I really tried to stick to talking about what was going on up to when he actually turned six months. A lot has happened in the past two weeks that I want to leave off until his 7 month update. The reason I left off doing this one until now was because I was waiting to get his measurements done at his pediatrician appointment, which he had last week. So if you are just looking for stats I'll tell you he is now a whopping 17 lbs. Check out the video for lots of details and of course, lots of babbling and wiggly baby action! :)

Empties | Lots of Moisturizer

The bucket has filled up again so it's time for another round of Empties! This time I seem to have a bunch of different moisturizers, probably because it's Winter. If you head over to the video you can hear all about my experience trying out the Curel Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer. I know that some YouTubers have reviewed this fairly recently (I think it's a fairly new product) but it got mailed to me as a sample so I figured I'd actually try it out the way it is meant to be used...on wet skin. I am almost positive that the reason it got mailed to me is because some magazine gave my information away to some other companies because it is completely abnormal for me to get samples sent to me by companies. Anyway, I'm not complaining because I had an extra couple of weeks before I needed to buy more of my normal moisturizer! Ha ha! :)

Blog Changes & Starting Baby Led Weaning

Hi Everyone! It has been a while since I've gotten a post up and I've been missing it. As you can probably tell, I've given the old blog a fresh coat of paint. There are still a number of changes that I'd like to make around here but there are only so many hours in the day, and Harold seems to need most of them! :)

Speaking of Harold... I can't believe that he is already 6 months old! He's had his first few tastes of solid food this week and it's going really well. Right before I sat down to write this we even found some of last nights zucchini in his diaper. That may seem a little TMI but I know I was wondering how long it would take for everything to start working through his system. We are doing Baby Led Weaning/Feeding so we are going straight to finger foods and skipping the purees. So far he's only had broccoli and zucchini and he seemed to enjoy them both.

Today's Tasty Tuesday video is a classic What I Ate and it was so fun to be able to include Hal in it now that he's joining us at the table!
