6 Months and So Beautiful

Chase reached the 6-month mark! People often tell me he seems like an easygoing baby, and he is. Most days he is content to lie on his back, rolling to his tummy, trying to get his toys to his mouth, for good stretches of time after each feeding. He does like frequent changes of scenery, so I move him to a different spot around the house about every 20 minutes all throughout the day. :)

Chase laughs when I tickle him, and Trenton thinks it's so funny when Chase accidentally grabs Trenton's arm or hair or fingers—whatever it may be.

He still prefers four short naps a day, but thankfully, lately he is usually giving me one longer nap each day. So that helps with the sanity. :) He sleeps well at night, though he likes to resist my sleep training efforts. Oh well! For now, he goes to bed around 7pm, wakes to eat around 10, again around 3 or 4am, and is then up for the day between 6 and 7am. We still have occasional pacifier runs in there too. (Where he wakes crying but shouldn't be hungry, so I just pop in the pacifier and pray it works! Most of the time it does.)

I'll update with his 6 months stats after this week's doctor's appointment!

I love these close-ups Sarah took while she was here. They're so crisp and beautiful!

We love you, sweet Chase!


  1. I am jealous! Not only did you get a date night, but of that onsie of Chase's. We had the same one but Ethan was too big to fit in it. Monkeys for feet, right? I too pray for the pacifier to work--there's no way he can be that hungry, right? Sounds like a fun weekend.

  2. He is such a cutie! I can't wait to meet him and hold him!

  3. Wow, it looks like Chase's hair is starting to grow! So sweet...
