Six Months Old

Half a year! I can hardly believe it. Spending a few minutes cuddling with him, seeing him learn something new, or hearing him laugh makes even the longest days seem like the best days. We love this little boy more than we ever thought possible!

Bergen now weighs 15lbs. 13oz. and is 27 1/2 inches long.
Some of his favorite things to play with are my hair brush, a toothbrush (one just for him to use while we brush our teeth), a washcloth, little cardboard boxes, some blocks, the pieces to a stacking pyramid, teething rings, and the phones.

We are still having beautiful weather and have gone to the park a couple of times lately. Bergen likes the swing. Actually, I think he just really likes being outside! He can be fussy fussy and I can't figure out what he needs, but if I put him in the stroller he's as relaxed as can be and doesn't make a peep. It's a good thing we've got some good areas to walk around!
I put Bergen in the crib to sleep one way, but guaranteed that's not the way he wakes up anymore. These little toes sticking out were too cute to pass up!
Bergen's a pretty good roller now and goes after things. One morning while I was getting ready, I found he had gotten himself into a bit of a tricky situation...
...under our bed that is. Since then, this has happened several times.
Speaking of going after things...I had laid out a blanket and put some toys on it for Bergen to play with. I then went into the kitchen to work on dinner. It wasn't long before he had the blanket wadded up, the toys covering much of the floor, and what was he doing?
You guessed it, eating my decorations! I think our Christmas tree is going to be in trouble this year ;)

Bergen and I got to go to the zoo last week. We went with a bunch of friends and it was a lot of fun! Bergen enjoyed watching the monkeys run around and he was very interested in the fish tanks. Other than that I think he just liked being out and watching the other kids...except Audrey may have been his favorite thing of the day. Check out the video below!
