This is my kid and & I!
Look at that face, isn’t it precious?!
Yes it is!
But….this kid is a ham!
And he gets a way with everything…and at only 6 months old! He turned 6 months on Tuesday, but Monday, Monday he nearly had me in tears. He has such a strong personality, like his mama. He packs a lot of power in that little body of his, mostly that little mouth. My chunk, or buddy, or muffin knows how to give his mama (and daddy) a run for her money.
Chunk is the funnist, sweetest kid I know, but he’s also one that tests his parents on a daily basis. He does it so much, that we laugh at him all the time. Most of the time its cute, but some times, it drives us up the wall. Its the times when I’m rushing to get us both ready and he throws a tantrum, because he wants to be held or picked up. The pressure is on and all he wants to do it get attention. He’s very social and loves attention, and he’ll let you know when he wants it for sure. He will also let you know when he doesn’t.
At 6 months, he’s showing us so much more of himself. He’s interested in everything, and everything goes in his mouth. If not in his mouth, definitely in his hands, and then he’s ripping, tearing, or pressing all kinds of buttons, i.e. when he gets hold of my phone. Its amazing how much personality this kid has. Like he is seriously already his own little person.
I’ve learned in six months of being a mother, that you can never underestimate a baby. They have good days and bad ones. They get attitudes, and don’t want to be bothered. And they crack up at things and fall over laughing, just like us adults do. Yes, they are their own little people. With that comes them testing you and pushing your buttons. It also means that like any other human, they possess the ability to take advantage and get over on you.
My son knows he has me wrapped around his finger. He had me on the verge of tears the other day. Babies and kids are geniuses when it comes to making their parents feel like complete failures at all times. He had me embarrassed and feeling like I didn’t know what to do or what I was doing. He threw a tantrum before we left the house, threw another in Target, and one all the way home. It didn’t stop there, because he was still on level 10 when his daddy got home. I told my husband he’d been like that all day, and then my husband got a real taste. Who knows what was going on, it could have been anything; teething, growth spurt, or just plain attitude.
Check out that side-eye he’s giving daddy!!! Amazing right? I told you, my son definitely gets a real attitude at times.
But most of the time, he’s like this:
Or like this:
And it makes every second of him testing me, WORTH IT!
Happy 6 months Chunk! Mommy and Daddy love you!
