On February 26th Paxton hit the halfway mark to 1 year. Wow! Well on his way to being a big boy. Uh, well, if you've held my chubby man, you know he is ALREADY a big boy. At his 6 month appointment, he weighed in at 19lbs. 15oz (only 1oz. shy of 20 pounds!) and he was 27 inches long. Both measurements placed him in the 50th-75th percentile for his age. Nice and average and very proportionate, I might add. Holden was the same exact weight at his 6 month appointment but a tad bit longer.

The doctor asked me if he was sitting up yet. When I responded with "not yet", she responded "uh-oh". So of course I got him home and started trying to sit him up. And he did pretty well with it. He tips over eventually, but he is sitting up pretty well now and he seems to enjoy the new view and independence. He can now roll either direction and daily enjoys some tummy time. He has become such a happy and smiley baby boy. With each month, I think he grows more smiley. And that smile is contagious! We love to make him giggle by playing peek-a-boo or tickling those chunky thighs. We are completely in love! There is not a day that passes that I don't thank God for this gift. He is such a treasure!

Holden is head over heels for him. He tries to straddle him and tickle his belly, kiss his head and just get as close as possible. While it could be annoying to some to have that invasion of space, Paxton just smiles at his big brother. They are completely in love and that is a joy to watch. Here are some pictures from his 6 month birthday!

It's hard to believe both or babies are halfway to a year (or, almost in Ava's case). What precious gifts!
