he's 6-months old

He's eating (drinking) rice cereal. If he needs to get somewhere, he rolls there! He reaches out for Mommy. He hates being left alone. He's working on sitting up. He puts everything in his mouth. He's drooling a lot (from teething). He is still not sleeping through the night. :/ Everyone keeps saying he looks like a little person...He was always a little person to me. He's halfway to his 1st birthday. Love this lil man! ♥ ♥ !!
My parents bought Lil Man that Nalgene botttle! Mommy has the adult version! We're looking forward to when he can sip out this bottle. But until then, we're so very happy with the milestones he's hit so far.

5 months

Well...lil man is 5-months old. He still wakes up every 2 hours in the middle of the night, but we still love him. He's sleeping in Mommy and Daddy's bed. He smiles all the time. He laughs only at Mommy. He learned how to roll over; he can only roll to his right though. He grabs his feet. He loves sitting in his Bumbo chair.

We're both so unbelievably in love with him.

We still can't believe how much he's grown in the short time.

My lil man has eczema. We'll have like 2 days of nice skin, and then he'll break out into a rash, and his skin will weep. :( Felix always seems to be taking it in good stride though.

Luckily, the eczema is only really bad on his arm folds. I've been applying moist compresses to stop the weeping, but ugh, it always comes back. :( 
On another note, I've been obsessed with the Hunger Games book series. It took me about a week to finish all the books. They're so addicting! I stayed up every night to finish the books...Felix was waking up 2-3 times in the middle of the night anyway. I highly recommend reading the books! They helped keep my mind off Felix's eczema.

My lil booger...

is 4 months old!
He smiles for Mommy all the time. He's baby talking. He's laughed 3 whole times. He's figured out how to suck his thumb. He can grab objects. He loves YoGabbaGabba. He loves to kick and stand on his feet. And he's grown out of his newborn clothes...*sigh* I can't believe how fast he's growing!

postpartum hair loss

Yea, it happens, and it sucks, but it's worth it. I've especially noticed that my temples look really bald. So how to deal? Well, I got bangs.

I'm the one with the bangs. 
I was goin' for this Olivia Wilde look:
I liked the texture and flowiness of her hair. My hair is wavy, so I thought I could pull this off. I had to cut off some length though because the ends were dead. :(
I also bought some turbans from a seller on Etsy. I'll report on how that works out when they arrive.

where did the time go?

While I was shooting some pictures of Felix in his Bumbo chair, he let out his first laugh! It was amazing!!

Then 2 days later, he was 3 months old!
3 months old!
3 months old!
Felix trying to figure out buttons...
3 months old!
3 months old!
He's just too cool for 3 months!

Welcome to the World, Felix

Felix was born on April 20, 2011 at 10:50AM. I was in labor for about 15 hours, and I pushed for 50 minutes. My husband and I were both in tears when we finally got to meet our little guy. We chose to name him Felix because it means "happy; lucky." He's the best thing that's ever happened to us.
