Month Six

Silas' sixth month included some BIG changes -- both for Silas and the whole family! This was the month of our big move. We sold our house back in October and had to move on December 3rd. So much of November was spent packing (when not celebrating Thanksgiving, of course).

Well, after some drama (you know, because things are never simple at our house) we ended up moving on December 4th -- Silas' 6 month birthday.

Silas was a good sport for me while I played around in our backyard.
Jo Anne and Bill came down to see our house one last time before we moved, so we took Bill to see the Big Dam Bridge. Not going to lie, taking Silas up there gave me a panic attack. Quite literally. Thankfully, everyone was going with me strapping him in VERY tightly to the stroller. And keeping full control of said stroller. haha. 
Just one of the many fun pictures I get from Tyler while they hang out before I get home from work. 

Silas has continued with oatmeal cereal. We have even added a few veggies (sweet potatoes, peas and green beans). So far is NOT a fan of anything green. But we just keep on trying!

Again, cute picture from Tyler :) 

Tyler took Silas to Walgreen with him one day, picked up a bag of Haribo peaches, and quickly learned that Silas was a big fan. Such a big fan, in fact, that he screamed every time Tyler tried to take them away. 

We enjoyed a game night with Bo, Bess and John. Although the kids pretty much went straight to bed, I know they had a blast. 

He started becoming MUCH more mobile this past month, resulting in getting caught a few times in his play mat. 

We were so excited to get to go to the wedding of one of my dearest friends, Leslie. It was such a fun reunion with a group of girls I literally grew up with. I swear, these girls knew me most of my entire life, and still somewhat like me. So I consider that both a miracle and a blessing! ha!

Ethan and Silas meeting for the first time.

Thanksgiving was wonderful this year! We headed up to NWA to spend it with both families. Thanksgiving day, we were able to spend our time with the Herriman family, and got to see almost everyone!

Silas with his great-uncle Bill.

Love our family! 

It was so great to be able to spend some much needed hang out time with Josh and Rachel.

No words for this one. It's obviously a favorite!

We spent Friday with my family, playing board games and eating way too much.

This was one of my favorite outfits, put together by my wonderful husband. He was going for practicality rather than looks. And yes, I had to meet them in public and Silas was seen by complete strangers looking like this!

It's amazing to me how quickly Silas will "learn a new trick." Within a week he went from barely being able to hold himself up for a few seconds to fully sitting for more than 10 minutes!
It may be hard to tell in this picture, but he has begun pushing up on all fours and rocking back and forth. Makes me nervous we will have a crawler in the near future! Yikes!
Well we are loving our new house! Seriously, it might sound strange, but living in a smaller house has been the BEST. Tyler even commented that I seem happier (guess I was a nightmare! ha!). Being in a smaller house means less to clean. It also means we are all together a bit more and don't  have to march across a huge house just to get a glass of water. I'm so thankful we are here for this time!

Again, just another fun photo shoot with my sweetheart! So glad I got to capture this grin! It's my favorite!
