Rhett’s Sixth Month

filed in:

This six month update feels like it’s weirdly disproportionate compared to other monthly updates! Why is that? Well, last month I posted a couple of sets of images that were actually at the beginning of his sixth month and THEN we photographed multiple weddings, had several trips away from home for a few days and the dads were for several days!

So! The weight of three kids and being gone and working caught up to me! But hey, this is still a win! He has some six months portraits and that’s better than nothing!! I just have to say… I love this boy. I wondered as soon as he was born if it would be different to love two different boys. Graham was my rainbow baby…. he was my redemptive gift from God and I adore him. Somehow, despite having two boys so close in age, I have such a different love for the two of them. It’s equal but it’s different. Graham is has a wonderful combination of sweetness, determination and destruction. Rhett has such a beautiful combo of curiosity, joy and being super active…. so active that he’s literally not gaining weight. He’s dropped from the 70th% to 54th%! It has to be because he never. stops. moving. He wants to stand up when he’s nursing. He wants to grab the tree in his room and the light above my side of the bed. He is almost crawling. He likes to be on his knees and rock back and forth! He’s strong and so wiggly!! He still thinks Evy is the funniest person in his life! His hair looks slightly strawberry blonde and is growing! He loves to stand and hold on to things. Overall, he’s just the most precious bundle of joy. He’s the happiest and most content baby we have ever had! Even with six teeth at six months old!!! What a champ!

Thanks for reading!
