sitting strongly, no more army crawling, pulling himself up on everything, the smiliest baby ever!
AND – most excitingly, after 7 months he’s finally growing to tolerate his crib. Yeah!
6/22/14: 6 Months!
sitting but wobbly, army crawling, smiling all the time, drooling constantly, sleeping terribly, growing quickly!

Eek! I just realized I missed the month of May in terms of posting. Fear not, I managed to take plenty of pictures. It was a great month. Spring arrived, we all adjusted to me going back to work, and the big boys graduated from preschool.
Mack started rolling which quickly turned into scooting. He’s pushing up on his arms and then on his legs – and it will be a matter of weeks before he figures out how to put the two together and start crawling. He’s also starting to sit up on his own, but he’s still pretty wobbly! Mack is such a happy baby. He is still waking up at night to eat. And, like his brothers, isn’t a fantastic sleeper. He’s still a fabulous cuddler, however! And there’s a lot of baby wearing which is so much fun!
He has all of us wrapped around his fingers!
Guys. I had an amazing April. I was fortunate enough to work with a MENTOR for my photography business. She totally rocked my world. Her advice and tips were invaluable! I learned a tremendous amount. I left with two full pages of to-do’s and it’s been so fun to check them off the list! She helped me with everything from work-life balance to my website. I am beyond grateful that I found Gina. She took these incredible photos during our session. Thank you Gina Zeidler! A few of these made it over to my photography website!
We had maternity photos taken before Mack arrived, documented his birth through photos and I took newborn photos but I didn’t have any of just Mack and I. I am so thankful to have these! I’m pretty blessed…with all FOUR of my boys.
This little lover continues to be the worlds best snuggler! We can now get him to belly laugh – which is by far one of my favorite noises on the planet. It’s intoxicating. Mack has also started to find his feet – which I also think is unbelievably adorable. It’s hard for him to grab both feet, though. Mainly due to the belly size!
He weighs 17.5 pounds – whoa! Size 2 diapers but ready for a bigger size – so we decided to go the gDiaper route.
He is holding his head and torso up quite well. He feels like a big boy when I hold him. He doesn’t love the pacifier. Prior and Mason are great at helping and signing to him. Especially if we’re in the car and he’s crying. He still doesn’t love the car. He’s been on many walks in the BOB stroller and does great. Loves the fresh air!
My mom has said that he smiles as much with his eyes as he does with his mouth. I think she’s right! I absolutely love how I see more of his personality come out every single day.
WE LOVE YOU, MACK!
