Six months already?!?! How did that happen? Is it really already September 9, 2010? It sure is....and while time is flying, I can tell daily that things are changing. This once (absolutely perfect and beautiful) tiny 7 pound 6 ounce newborn that we brought home from the hospital. . . you know, the one that only slept, ate, pooped and cried. . . is now a remarkable and capable six month infant. Waylon now can not only roll from one side of the room to the other but he can also sit up all by himself too. He is so close to crawling it is nail biting. And while we are enjoying our very last few days of somewhat being able to keep him confined, he sure can move (and might I add QUICKLY) from one room to another in his walker (yes, the one that was way too expensive but awesome all at the same time). Of course, he is a Pearce and already getting into trouble. He can't seem to keep his precious hands away from the outlets or the trash can. He is super nosy (oh I know, I should call it inquisitive) and is always interested in what everybody is talking about and all they have in their hands, on their plate, or even in my purse. I also believe that Waylon was born with this special power that enables him to stretch his arms out way farther than he should be to in order to grab a pen if you are writing with it, your lunch on the counter or maybe even a glass of water that he wants to knock over (all over his Mommy's pants so it looks like she had an accident at Red Robin). He will spot you from across the room and give you a killer smile that is destined to knock many girls off their feet in the future. He sits at the dinner table in his high chair and tells us all about his day each night. HE IS PRECIOUS! The most amazing thing about a baby who is 1/2 a year old though, is that he has his own unique and special personality. He is strong and determined, smart and independent, happy and full of love. He is no longer a fully reliant newborn, but actually his own little person. We are just starting to see who the real Waylon Lawrence Pearce is and I absolutely in love with him.
At least 23 and 1/2 pounds
28 and 1/4 inches
size12 months clothes
size 4 diapers
size 2 shoes
Food: avocado, apples, squash and carrots...but honestly, he will eat anything!
Sport: football....we actually have to turn it off the TV to get him to eat or get his attention. And yes it is still up in the air if he is going to go with Daddy and be a Dallas fan or with Mommy and route on those Chicago Bears.
Activity with Daddy: rolling around and rough housing on the floor
Activity with Mommy: dancing and singing to Easton Corbin's 'Roll with it'
Other favorites: splashing in the bath, exploring in his walker both inside and out on the courtyard, EATING, playing with his silver ball (he is definitely in the try to put everything in his mouth stage),
typing on the keyboard at work with Daddy,
jumping in his Johnny Jump-it while Mommy and Daddy get ready,
and laughing at Mommy's moving hair (and her looking like an absolute idiot to the rest of the world).
He is seriously our pride and joy and the most amazing thing we have ever done. He makes my heart flutter with joy. I am so proud to be his Mommy and absolutely honored that God would in trust such a special little boy into my arms. I love him more each and every day. Happy 1/2 Birthday to my amazing Mini-Man!
Psalm 127:3-5 Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate.
