so big

Is this really my baby boy?

Sitting up all by himself...

when just a few weeks ago he still needed assistance from the Bumbo...
Or maybe mommy just wasn't ready to admit he was probably old enough to be sitting by himself...

And is he really already eating in a highchair?

This one was a very hard transition for me.  I really enjoyed being his only "food source."

Wasn't it just yesterday that he was this little?
Now he barely fits in his car seat!

And now, at 6 months, he's bigger than my girls were at
one year!
He's nearly as big as them now!

I know it's cliché, but isn't there a way to keep them this little?

I'm so not ready for my baby to grow up.

Oh what a sweet big boy. For some reason 6 months just seems like a complete turning point - highchair, starting to eat food, sitting up, getting around. Wow - it happens in a flash. He's such a handsome little guy....he's going to be a heart-breaker AND he'll know how to "treat the ladies" because of his sweet sisters' influences. I can't wait for him to marry my future daughter (so I guess I'm no help at keeping him a baby).

Liz - You'd better get working on that future baby girl...

Mama Foster - He was 19lbs 3oz at his 6 month checkup! Isn't that insane?! I'm hoping he'll slow down the growth once he's more mobile.

Oh how cute!!! All your children are so stinkin' cute...but I think you're definitely going to have to fight off crazy girls with those beautiful eyes of Tate's!
He is a manly boy...Cloe weighed in at 19 lb. at one year!
Squeeze him tight while you can! I miss my babies!
My Liz will let me borrow her's!

I was excited to find your blog through Katie's (The Baby Factory). I have been to a few of your jewelry parties with Jenn Jackson, but had no idea you had a cute blog {grin}.

Just wanted to say "hi" and tell you what a cute family you have. Your baby is just adorable. Hope you don't mind if I stop by once in a while.

Oh wow!! He is really big - and so, so cute!! It does happen way too fast. And that does sound so cliche. But it's true. :)

Yeah, I hear you on this one. Joshua weighs as much as Sammy and he's 21 months younger!
