Six months

Matthew is 6 months old!! I cant believe that we are half way to a year. His little life is going by way to fast. I feel like Cade's first few months went by so slow probably because I was figuring out how to be a mom. And he was higher maintenance than Matthew is. At six months old he weighs 13 pounds and is wearing size 2 diapers and size 3-6 month clothes... Can we say Peanut?! He is still SOO sweet and just loves to watch Cade. He now is sitting up pretty well and Cade enjoys sitting with him and bringing him toys as well as feeding him puffs. Matthew is now sleeping without the swaddle (YAY) and each night gets better and better. He isnt using it at naps either and I am so glad he is adjusting. He sleeps on his belly in a fleece sleep sack. He is now eating rice cereal and has had baby food consisting of banana's, squash, carrots and apples. He likes it all. Have I mentioned that he is ready to eat food and give up on nursing?? Yes.. well he would rather eat food than nurse any day. Therefore, I pump most feedings but have spread his nursing out to every 4 hours and he gets 2 meals a day. Here is my peanut at six months...
 I had to show 2 pictures because Matthew wanted to show you how he is sitting up so well!
