Today marks 6 sweet months of Felix.

Today marks 6 sweet months of Felix.

Pre-K orientation under the belt, and one last ice cream before summer is truly over.

Pre-K orientation under the belt, and one last ice cream before summer is truly over.

26 weeks (+1day).
Officially sitting on his own (for short stints)!
Third tooth has broken through!
He liked avocado yesterday.
Sleeps in a crib in “the boys’ room”, as of last night.
Has some bad heat/diaper rash that comes and goes :(
Felix seems back to his happy self finally after that ER trip/virus/teething nonsense that lasted for weeks!
I can’t believe he is 6 months old tomorrow! Six months seems like a serious milestone; infant-hood is being left in the dust!

Finished off the summer just right.

These photos are terrible, I know, but look! Bee is in a toddler bed.
It took me over 3 hours to assemble it myself (no directions. It was Lars’ before and was stored away) with all the kids home and Felix teething. Daniel took them for a walk when he finished work and I was able to finish assembling it and take apart the crib in about 20 minutes.
Bedtime took about an hour longer for Bee. She escaped 5 times and I ended up sitting in there with her til she fell asleep (I didn’t do that when she slept in a crib). I’m already sort of regretting this, but she is 2 1/2 and we need the crib for Felix the Tank who is way too big for the co-sleeper!
Tomorrow’s project is to assemble the crib in Lars’ room (it’s going to be the boys’ room), and give away some of the toys in there.
