Holy smokes he's 6 months!









Where did the time go! Wasn't he just born? Harper is officially no longer a blob. He is rolling and scooting everywhere. He has got some fast hands that can swipe anything. He loves to stand but oddly enough he still isn't sitting up on his own(oh well). He is a very smiley boy. I think he is constantly waiting for someone to just look his way so he can throw you a smile. He has been eating solids. He likes pears and sweet potatoes. He dislikes avocado(i can't blame him). He is my first child that i haven't had to work at all. There for he is pretty spoiled. He does not like bottles, he is usually being held by me and he has horrible sleeping habits. I take full responsibility for this. I know I need to crack down and start doing baby wise. Despite the no sleeping thing he is a good baby. I think I will keep him.

great pictures and I love this swing idea. I really didn't think Harper would get all the month mark pictures, but you are a very diligent mommy, Lucky Harper, he will not be the forgotten third child. PS check my Schultz House mothers day Blog again I posted a video of Ollie at the end of it.

I'll take him if he is up for grabs (but not between the hours of 10pm-8am) Such cute pictures. He is so stinking cute!!

Its so unbelievable how time flies by. He is darling! He takes after his two cute older brothers!

Ruth-he is so handsome. I can imagine everyone stopping him! Love the pictures, way to stick to those motherly duties. I can't do the baby wise thing, but then again both of my kids are good sleepers.

oh my gosh. too cute. he is a beautiful baby. xoe saw these pictures and said..."Gosh mom, he just reminds me of someone that I can't think of...maybe it's Uncle Scott." Don't know if she's ever overheard us talking or what but she was seriously contemplating it for a long time. He really DOES look like scott. And what a great baby for you to have as your 3rd. Hope it works for me. :)

I did the baby wise crack down at 6 months for Hannah, and 14 months for Gavin. I'm so bad...

He's soooo handsome! Nice pics too Ruthy! Your photo skills are getting quite fabulous! I wish we would've hit all of Sloan's month marks. Such fun pics in the swing.

6 months old i can't believe it. it is so amazing how the time goes by so quickly. when i was in highschool and thought about something that was a year away, it seemed like forever. now when i think about a year from now it seems like tomorrow. having children makes the time go by much faster. i guess it's true that time flies when you are having fun. miss you and wish our kids could play. maybe next summer.

Oh Ruth... I just put Phillip in his bed a week ago for the night for the first time. It was heaven! Why didn't I do this earlier??? He is already sleeping 8-10 hours without waking up. If I would have known it was going to be that easy I would have done it long ago! Good Luck... He is so darling.

Are you kidding me with the swing idea! You could make some sweet moolah art directing photo shoots.
