Raynor’s Half Birthday

20 Jan

Today we are celebrating Raynor’s half birthday! I can not BELIEVE we are already at 6 months! I’m not ready! He has accomplished a lot in the last 6 months and it is truly amazing to watch him grow. Every day I am in awe at what he can accomplish!


His Milestones:

  • Can sleep in his own bed with only minimal interaction. Although he won’t sleep all night, we feel good about him sleeping in his own room.
  • Started eating oatmeal cereal around 5 1/2 months. He enjoys it for breakfast and dinner which we started this week.
  • He is in 3-6 month onsies, 6-9 month pj’s and pants (mostly due to his larger behind from our cloth diapers).
  • Raynor enjoys being outside. He rides on a 3 in 1 trike around the neighborhood with us pushing him. He also enjoys being in our Lillebaby carrier.


  • Raynor loves his grandparents and lights up when he sees all of them whether in person or on facetime.
  • Raynor can play and reach for toys and loves his crinkle book  and a light up wand from the $1 of target the most.
  • His doorway jumper is his favorite place to be if he isn’t in the arms of either me or Britton.


  • He almost always falls asleep in the car.
  • Raynor reaches for things Britton and I have in our hands, like our phones, and tries to put everything in his mouth.
  • He can sit up on his own but prefers to stand with support.
  • We’ve already traveled to Iowa twice to see family and he is a great traveler!


  • Raynor loves to be thrown up in the air and enjoys BIG movement. I think he will be a thrill seeker!
  • He is beginning to recognize when we are not with him and cries for us to be near.
  • Raynor only naps for 30 minutes at a time despite our best efforts to keep him asleep longer during the day.
  • We love our BumGenius diapers most and travel with honest diapers when we need some disposables.
  • He loves to talk and can copy us when we make funny sounds.
  • Raynor is super ticklish and we love to listen to his sweet laugh!

We don’t have his 6 month check up for another 2 weeks so I can’t give an update on size but this kid is growing like a weed and its both exciting and sad at the same time.  I can’t wait to see what he accomplishes in the next 6 months!
