Thursday Thirteen (#1)

Thirteen Reasons Why My Preemie's Not a Preemie Anymore (Happy six month birthday, Aidan!!)
1. He's rolling around on the floor
2. He smiles incessantly and I love it
3. He laughs at things like tickles and big huge rottweilers
4. He eats all his vegetables and cereal and he loves using a spoon
5. He holds his own bottle and shrieks and screams when you try to take it away and stares it down until the nipple is placed firmly back in his mouth again
6. He is in 6-9 month clothes and has huge ham hock legs and Michelin Man arms
7. He is about to sit up any day now, any day
8. He has two teeth poking out from underneath. He's been working hard on these and trust me, it's not easy work for him or for us
9. He is sleeping through the night, yay sleep! Yay!
10. He loves being outside and watching the world go on around him
11. He says "I love you". OK, he doesn't actually say it but his voice mimicks mine when I say it, does that count? It's more like a hum.
12. He tells us exotic stories of superheroes, love and life, riches and adventures, all through his extraordinary gift of babble
13. He'll only drink water from a cup, but that's ok with us!

Oh I miss the baby days! Mine are 6 and 4 now.

Great list. Unfortunately, I can't have children... but I can enjoy watching others' grow and not have to worry about the messy stuff, like dirty diapers. ;)

Looks like you figured out the link wizard. ;) We newbies can grow old together (in the Thursday Thirteen world that is). LOL

I don't care HOW my boys say, "I love you," I always love "hearing" it. Sleeping through the night? YEAH!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by my Thursday Thirteen, too! ;)

He sounds adorable! :)

I don't have any kids but I think drinking from a cup at 6 months is excellent! I have a 3 year old cousin who refuses to drink from a cup at all! Happy TT!
