Before I forget, here’s our weekly photo for this past week…Mommy with Jakob at 26 weeks. I have to go back to work in 14 weeks! Ugh…I want to stay home forever.
Our little monster is 6 months old today. I say this every month, but time is going by SO fast! Every Thursday we have playgroup, then I look forwards to the weekends because Yannick will be home. I just finish getting through a weekend, when whoops it’s already time for the next playgroup! I’m going to *blink* and be at his wedding, I just know it.
See that thing he’s doing with his mouth? That’s his new favorite thing. He started doing it a few days ago, and now every time there’s nothing in his mouth (finger, toes, shoes, etc) he’s got his lower lip sucked in like that.
By six months, your baby

Here’s a side-by-side of his first month chair photo compared to his six month chair photo. I’m so used to him looking the way he does that I almost can’t recognize him as the little, squirmy baby he used to be. He’s such a “boy” already!

I don’t have a good photo of him in the cabled cardigan, but I plan on taking one tomorrow so I can get started on my alterations. The sweater is adorable on him, but I’m really irked at the pattern- the sleeves are about 3″ too long, but the body is about 3″ too short! I should have expected the sleeves to be a bit long since it is a drop-shouldered pattern, but for the body? Come on! I spend the entire time he’s wearing it pulling it down so he doesn’t look like he’s wearing something too small. Unfortunately the zipper is not going to be ripped and/or a longer one put in, but I have more of the dark brown so I will pick up along the bottom edge and knit down for as long as I can before I run out of yarn. There will be a gap at the bottom where the zipper won’t go all the way down, but I’m hoping it will look deliberate.
