I can barely believe my baby is six months old.
He is so much fun & has a lot of personality.

A few facts about Baby B:
(Mostly for me to remember)
He is such a good, happy baby.
He usually only fusses if he is: hungry, tired, or sick.
He rolls all over the place. 
Sits up all by himself, with an occasional spill here & there.
Gets in crawling stance... he's almost scooting!
Just started eating solids.
Is exclusively nursed-- no bottles or pacifiers for this kid (we tried...).
Loves Sophie the giraffe, books, balls, & music.
Inherited Tyson's love for the water. He goes nuts at bath time!
Chews on his thumb when he is tired.
Babbles a lot, usually says "Da da da da".
Always wants the "none" toy items: phones, remote controls, papers, & drinks are a few of his favs.
Loves his tongue-- it's out of his mouth 75 % of the time.
And his hair is getting long on the top-- so sometimes we do a little fo-hawk for fun (like in the photos below).

We love everything about our Bennett boy. Happy half birthday to our crazy, silly, happy, curious, busy, wiggly, mobile babe! 

Before we know it, you will be 1...

I love these pictures I snapped of Bennett just before sunset today. Balancing a camera & a wiggle worm wasn't an easy task, but definitely worth it. 
These photos are SO Bennett right now. Curious. Wiggly. Silly (always sucking on his bottom lip, puffing those cheeks out). And just happy-go-lucky. 
Plus those big blue eyes melt this mama's heart.

So Long, 2012.

I loved this year so much.
I am sad to see it go.
But excited to see what 2013 has in store for our little family.
Now let's review.
We made the big move to Springville, and vowed to stop moving mid-winter!

Found out baby B was a boy! Surprised, happy, & so excited.

Went on a "baby-moon" to Hawaii, where we celebrated 2 years of marriage. Hip hip!

Ali & Will came to visit Utah. We played, ate good food, & of course, crafted!

I walked in the commencement ceremonies in Logan, where my Dad was able to give me my diploma cover.

Spent our days anticipating the arrival of baby and the farewell of my swollen feet & big belly.

 Bennett was finally born (after making us wait an extra week)! 7/16/12-- best day ever.

 I finally finished my classes and was able to focus on life as a stay at home mama!

Bennett was blessed by his Daddy-o.

 Spent time as a family of three enjoying my favorite season & Bennett's first Halloween!

Bennett's first Thanksgiving (however no Turkey for him this year, maybe next! :))

Even though Bennett had no idea what was going on-- Christmas with a baby was magical. So. Fun!

Okay 2013-- show  me what you've got!
