MONTHLY MAGNUS - 6 MONTHS OF THAT #MOMLIFE - HASHTAG BLESSED
July 28, 2017
If you've been following along on instagram (and insta stories), you may have gathered that today is a very special day - we celebrated 6 months of Magnus! Half a year of living this glorious #momlife warrants a little update, what do you guys think?
My gorgeous bub on his half birthday! Whenever he hits a milestone, it is so bittersweet for us. I alternate between thinking I want him to be little forever and getting so excited about every little step he takes towards growing up. Just like every other mom ever, am I right?
He can sit now and he eats food like a champ. This will not come as a shock to you if you know his parents... Ladies and gentlemen, here we have a classic example of the apple not falling too far from the tree. Speaking of apples, apple sauce - homemade, no added sugar - is a favorite!
Best (or should I say most successful?) puppy face award goes to... this guy right here! He loves to talk (another shocker, I know) and says "dadada", "bababa" and "rarara", but never "mamama". We're working on remedying that asap, but in the meantime these baby blues pretty much do the trick of wrapping Mama around those chubby little fingers.
He is 68.5 cm / 27 inches long and weighs 8.62 kg / 19 lbs. D and I both guessed wrong and thought he was heavier - go figure! He has a big head like his Mama - 46 cm / 18.1 inches, which apparently puts him in the 99th percentile - something that weirdly makes me proud even though that makes no sense. It just means I'm going to have to get him bigger hats this winter.
And he (finally!!!!!) rolled over for the first time this week - probably the most anticipated event of the month up in this house! He rolls from back to front only so far, but that was a pretty big deal and we're pretty excited about it.
That was my little Magnus update - hope you guys enjoyed! I'm thinking I'll do one every month on his "birthday" :)
