I seriously can not believe that my baby is 6 months old! On one hand it feels like he has been a part of our lives forever, and on the other hand it feels like yesterday that he blesses us. I recently learned about the term "rainbow baby". I haven't shared this with many people, but Colton is our "rainbow baby". For those of you that aren't familiar with the term, a rainbow baby is your second baby. A baby after a loss. I made it to 10 weeks with our first baby before I lost in on February 3, 2013. Maybe I will tell the story sometime, but right now I am celebrating my beautiful baby boy!
Colton Christopher makes us laugh everyday. He is quick with a smile and a giggle to follow. He is one of the most observant babies I've ever seen. He loves to watch us, and he watches with so much interest I just wonder what he is thinking.
He loves to look at himself in the mirror, it almost always makes him smile. He LOVES to eat. I mean seriously…just look at the boy!
He has just learned to sit up on his own. He still flops back, so I can't just put him down, but he can do it! He also loves to stand! He is very wobbly and obviously can stand on his own, but loves it all the same.
He is a rolling machine. He recently started sleeping on his side. I find myself just staring at the monitor, watching him sleep. There are so many times I just want to go in and pick him up and cuddle him.
Going back to work has been hard. It does make it a little easier knowing that he is just home with Chris, but still….I'm not home with him. Plus…I'm not exactly happy with my work situation (long story) which makes it harder to go in everyday and leave my baby at home.
But anyway….my baby is 6 MONTHS!!!
