Half a year.

 Happy 6  months to my happy little man.
He continues to change every day and never ceases to make us laugh constantly.
Tanner is full of personality and loves to be the center of attention. 

At his last appointment our little peanut weighed 15lbs and was around 25 inches.

What we want to remember from month 6

 yes, my toilet paper photo bombed this picture..but I caught him in a still moment so here we go.

 Tanner does everything he can to try and crawl but no matter how hard he tries he just can't quite figure it out. Usually his attempts turn into something that looks very similar to the dance move "The worm", and I absolutely die laughing.

 His faces.
This kid makes the best faces. He stares at most people with such intensity and never misses anything that is going on around him.

 That smile.
Tanner loves to smile and will do so for just about anyone. I love how happy he is (most days) and that I can always count on a big grin from my boy. Its one of the best parts of my day.
And also, those neck rolls? are you kidding me? :)

 He is still full on teething and must put everything in his mouth.
This month has definitely had some really rough days because my almost always happy baby
turned into a monster.
We had a few very long days and hard nights but thankfully tooth number 1 popped its way through the surface and we are happy again...till the others come.

 I can't quite tell you what it is but I love everything about this picture. I was looking at it knowing that someday I won't remember him ever being this small. Some day those tiny, perfect little fingers will turn into the hands of a man.

 Such a personality.
 That curled up lip..he has done that since he was very tiny and I finally got it on camera.
I love it, I love him.

 Month 6th has definitely brought out even more curiosity in my already curious boy. I love watching him take in this big world and try to make sense of it all. I love watching Tanner pick up a new thing and examine every inch of before trying to determine what he should do with it. Which of course always just leads to the mouth. Trying to see life through his eyes has been such a blessing as a mom. I definitely need to take more time to examine the things around me, God has given us so much on this earth to enjoy.

 Almost sitting up.
Tanner can't quite sit up without someone being close to catch a tumble but he is gaining balance every day. We practice through out the day and he makes me laugh because he has no interest, sitting is very boring to Tanner when he could be moving!

This weekend we dedicate our sweet little boy at Church. I have been praying over my son since before he was born but the heaviness of raising a child is one that can sometimes be overwhelming. Today as I watched him play I prayed that God would use these precious hands for His glory. Above all else I pray that he grows up loving the Lord above all else.

Tanner still does not sleep well. In fact he sleeps horribly. :)
We have tried the many "methods" people suggest but this week the Lord has really convicted me to be using that time to pray for him and his future. 

Tanner brings us so much joy and I am constantly amazed that God choose Kevin and I to care for him.

Tanner's life verse

Isaiah 41:10
 fear not, for I am with you;
    be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
    I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
