6 Month Surprises

Recently it seems that not a day goes by that Remy doesn't have a new surprise for us.

So what have I been the most surprised about?

Well first I thought it was when he discovered how to get up on his knees and then started to rock. (Time to start baby proofing!)...

but then I knew it was when he could entertain himself in the crib...

I was sure it was when he started eating real food...and liked it... 

OK...I finished my dinner..time for dessert!

But was convinced it was when he starting sitting on his own...

Turns out, the biggest surprise wasn't any of these things. What has surprised me most is that each day I find myself more in love with this guy. It doesn't seem possible that I could love him any more than I do at this moment but I know tomorrow I will find one more thing to love about this sweet baby boy of mine.  

Missed month 5? Check out the secret post here.

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

Just a quick note to remind you of how good I've been this year. (I've even heard Mom say that I'm a little angel when she thought I wasn't listening.) 

I know how hard it can be to figure out what a little guy like me might want and figured you could use some suggestions. I've been giving it a lot of thought - you know, in my spare time - and have come up with my top ten list below. 

1. Sophie the Giraffe - I've always wanted a pet giraffe and all of my friends at school have one and say she's really great. Plus I promise to feed and walk her.

2. Sassy Developmental Wonder Wheel Station - Mom just started putting me in my highchair while she's in the kitchen "cooking". I have to admit it's a little boring compared to what I'm used to. One of these would definitely make it slightly more bearable.

3. Manhattan Toy Winkel - Look how cool this thing is! And think of all of the things I can do with it, like chew on it...and stretch it...and chew on it...

4. Melissa & Doug Toolbox Fill and Spill - I can't wait to help Dad work on things around the house, however, I'm still working on my coordination skills and am only allowed to supervise. In the meantime, I can practice with this set.

5. Melissa & Doug Caterpillar Grasping Toy - Every little boy needs a pet caterpillar. This is probably the only one Mom will knowingly let me have.

6. Manhattan Toys Farmyard Friends Soft Activity Book - I've always enjoyed a good adventure book.

7. Baby Einstein Take Along Tunes - I'm ready to give this Einstein guy some real competition.

8. Fisher-Price Brilliant Basics Stack and Roll Cups - It's either this or some Tupperware containers.

9. VTech Sit-to-Stand Learning Walker -  I may not be ready to walk yet, but when I am, I'm sure I'll need all the help I can get.

10. Lil Melon Knee Pads - Because I need to learn how to crawl before I can walk.

If you are looking to save some time (and give those little elves a well deserved break) you can see my complete wish list here.

I'm sure you're super busy getting your lists in order so I'll keep this short. Please tell Mrs. Claus that I said hi. I'll make sure Mom saves you some of her delicious sugar cookies. You better hurry though, I can't guarantee Bella won't eat them before you get here.

Your Little Buddy,

P.S. Tell Rudolph that I've been practicing my reindeer riding technique on Bella but I'm not quite ready for the real thing yet. Can we reschedule for next year?
