6 months!

I'm a bit behind on posting Colton's 6 month update. So I figured I would do it right before he turns 7 months :) So this really should have been up on 2/6 but hey, we are still in the ball park :)
This baby. I have heard several times that "Having children is a woman's decision to forever have her heart walk around outside of her body" and I could never understand that until this sweet, frustrating boy came along, and I'm sure he will prove that again and again.
Colton is absolute hilarious. His favorite thing is to get people to laugh. He will feign being bashful, giggle, squeal, flash a huge dimply smile, or simply stare almost everyone down until they look at him and laugh. He has the funniest screechy sound of joy. He will get the biggest smile and inhale and screech and that's when you know he is thrilled with life.
He is super chatty, and loves to carry on conversations with himself while he is playing on the floor. He also loves to bang his toys on the wood floor to see the different sounds they make.
His favorite song in the whole world is Uptown Funk. He loves watching the music video, and will get up on all fours and rock back and forth to dance along with Bruno Mars. If Colton is upset in the car all I have to do is play "His song" and soon he is cooing along from his car seat. It is hilarious. The other day we were in Kohls, and he was done shopping and just whining at me, when Uptown funk came on over the store speakers and the high pitched squeal of laughter followed by staring at the ceiling for the next 4 minutes was all the time I needed to finish up our shopping :)

Colton has yet to sleep through the night. His poor mama hasn't has and uninterrupted night's sleep in over a year. I guess pregnancy really does train you for having a baby. It has only been in the past couple of nights that he is only waking up every 4 hours. Before that, since we moved to Utah, Colton had been waking every hour and a half and screaming for a good 15 minutes. So we will take the 4 hour stretches! He will, however go down for naps very easily, and naps are stretching for an hour or more these days, which is a welcome change from his former 30 minute naps.
He is a little mama's boy. When Colton is crying he will babble "mamamama" until I pick him up. He loves giving mom big slobbery kisses and stuffing my hair in his mouth every chance he gets. But toward the end of the day when we have been together all. day. long. he gets pretty sick of me and starts looking toward the front door just waiting for his daddy to come home. Dad makes him laugh so hard and he loves it when dad looks at hims and says "BUBBAS!!" He has really loved eating from his bottles and snuggling with dad while he drinks.
He only likes to be held facing forward, none of this "baby on the hip" nonsense. He hates that! He loves eating yogurt dots, puffs, and green beans, but doesn't enjoy peas or sweet potatoes very much. He is so curious and will just stare at things with the most serious look on his face, trying to figure them out.
I may be biased but I really think Colton is the cutest baby in the whole world, and I am so blessed to be his mom. He has really turned into this sunshiney happy boy and my days with him are filled with laughter. (and let's be honest, sometimes mom pulling her hair out as he is crying in his crib ;) )

  1. He is adorable!!! Isn't amazing how babies have a favorite song?! I love how his little legs tapped right on beat with the music in your video. Can't wait to play with him (and you guys too) this summer!
