6 months

This was a big month for Judah.  He has really started to come out and be more active.  He's not a passive observer anymore.  Now, he likes to be part of whatever we're doing.  He is such a smiley boy and laughs all the time.  He is very easy going, but if he doesn't like something, he'll let you know.  Judah still has a bit of a temper and if he's upset about something it doesn't take long for you to know it.  He has started to grab at everything.  If Micah has it, Judah wants it, and Micah is often willing to oblige (but it goes both ways and Micah likes to take what Judah has).  Here are some of Judah's milestones this month:

*He went to Grand Rapids with us and Mimi to see Art Prize.  Mommy wore him the entire time and he did so great!

*Judah joined us for our sixth (?) annual apple picking trip with the Lows.  The crop was terrible this year and we didn't even actually pick any apples, but we did go on the hayrack ride and played in the children's zoo.  And Judah got to watch big brother ride the moo choo train. :)

*Judah also went to a pumpkin patch.  He played in the corn pit, but was really not a fan.  Every time he touched the corn, he started to cry, but if one of us was holding him he was fine.  I'm sure that will change next year!

*We celebrated Micah's 2nd birthday with a Yo Gabba Gabba party.  Judah played in the jumper almost the entire time.  He loved people watching and was so excited to see all of big brother's new presents!

*Judah attended SHINE Fest at our church, Boo at the Zoo, and went trick-or-treating for the first time.  We didn't buy him a full costume because he's so little, but I did get him a Muno hat and mittens.  It worked out perfectly because he was so bundled up that you could really only see his head anyway.  It was chilly, but Judah loves being outside so he did great.

*We went to the Children's Museum Downtown.  This was the first time that Judah really got to play at the children's museum.  It was so neat to see him playing and interacting with the different exhibits.  I was lucky that Daddy was with us so that we could each play with one boy!

*Judah learned to roll tummy to back and he is a rolling machine!  As soon as we put him down on the floor to play, he rolls to his tummy.  If I leave him for any amount of time, he is never in the same place that I left him, he scoots and rolls all over.  He's also doing "baby push-ups."  I don't think it's going to be long before he starts getting his legs under himself and creeping on all fours.

*He also learned how to sit on his own this month.  He thinks he is such a big boy when he sits all by himself.  He's still slightly wobbly, but for the most part I am comfortable walking away from him while he is sitting.  It's obvious that a whole new world has opened up to him now that he can sit because he loves playing on the floor!

Judah is getting to become such a big boy, I cannot believe it.  We are really loving watching him grow up and just become more and more the person he was made to be, but I do wish that time would slow down.  The days go by so fast!

Annual trip to County Line Orchard with the Lows.  When we started this seven (we missed a year) years ago, there was four of us.  Wow, how we've grown!
