Stickin' That Baby Tongue Out


How has it been almost half of a year already?!? Cruz is approaching the half a year mark and I can not believe how fast time has flown.  

I have to stick in a Cruz post before all the fall/halloween/holiday posts bog down the blog.  

Lets see, what has the baby been up too?

He can roll over and maneuver himself all of over the living room floor.

He is mostly wearing 6 months clothes and 6-9 month clothes.  As he is growing out of clothes I'm getting them ready for giving away or selling.  How is it that these boy clothes are not going to be worn by any of my boys every again?!?

He just moved from 4 short naps a day to 3 naps (one short and two long) It is glorious!! Those long naps make everyone happy!

He still sleeps in the pack-n-play in our room at night but he takes his naps in his crib during the day.  Really the kid can sleep anywhere.  He has been THE easiest baby so far when it comes to putting him to bed.  He can be wide awake and happy when I lay him down, I turn on the music, give him a pacifier and linen blanket.  Leave for a few minutes and when I come back he is out like a light!

We are praying this continues!!

He is loving the jumparoo these days

And the other boys love it when he is in the jumparoo too.  They are constantly trying to make him laugh.

We have added cereal, fruits and veggies.  I have now figured out that he likes his cereal when it is made with formula.  If I mix the rice cereal with water he refuses to eat it.  So far the only fruit/veggie he likes is carrots.  We are still working on expanding his palate.

Peaches...He wasn't a fan.
It's fun having Cruz in the high chair and having him join us during meal time.  This is breakfast with 3 boys and a baby..Pretty soon we are going to run out of chairs!

He is seriously such a happy baby! How could he not be?? He has 3 craaazzzzy brothers to keep him entertained (okay, and maybe 2 crazy parents too! and you KNOW we are crazy because we have 4 kids under 4! I crack myself up.)

oh and the kid can stick his tongue out!!! Every time he laughs that cute little tongue comes out and he usually curls it up on his lip.  Ugh, that cute little tongue...I could just eat him up.

There was a day this past month that we were all in the garage. Ryan and I were cleaning up and organizing things and the boys were riding bikes and playing.  Cruz tried out the johnny-jump-up for the first time.

Landen just LOVED it.  And kept swinging him and making him laugh.  It was so cute watching them interact.

***This isn't Cruz related but....as I was going to through pictures of that same day we were cleaning up the garage I found this one.  Vincent is helping Ryan use the saw to cut down some junk boards.  He was soooo proud that he was helping his daddy. Just look at that beaming face.***

Well these next 3 months are going to fly by just as fast as the last 6 did, if not faster.  Halloween, pumpkin patches, friend's parties, family pictures, Thanksgiving and Christmas.  I have always loved this time of year but it is ONE HUNDRED PERCENT more fun with these little boys around experiencing it all with us!
