Harrison: I can't believe he's 6 months already!!

It's true.  Somehow my sweetest littlest bug is already 6 months!  I can't believe it!  Each child's life seems to be twice as fast as the child before him.  This precious face is halfway to a year!
**If you look super close you can see his 2 little teeth.  ;)

I never got around to a 5 month post or "official 6 month pictures", but he's doing all sorts of fun stuff now, so I have to write about him!

Awhile back, when he was still really little, I wrote about the older boys only getting out of bed in the morning when they know they can go see Harrison.  The morning's he gets to sleep in is rough.  I have to practically drag them out of bed and Jackson sometimes cries because he knows he probably won't see Harrison until after school.  Well these pictures were taken last week.  This is what happens every morning-

Is there a baby under there??
He looks frightened.

He's much happier here!

They LOVE their little brother.
Austin loves his brother so much he often asks me to take pictures of him with Harrison.
In this picture Austin said, "please take a picture of my littlest brother and me".  So I did.

They always ask to hold Harrison.
Jackson's turn-

Austin's turn-
(Notice Harrison is never without enough kisses from anyone)

At his 6 month well-check, Harrison's pediatrician said, "well, I would normally ask if he gets enough interaction, but I know his brothers".  And she's right!  I think, well, I know, that Harrison wishes for a little more space sometimes, especially from Austin, but most of the time he LOVES the attention!

Harrison has started sleeping in his own room, in his own crib during all naps and at night.  He even puts himself to sleep.  He was the most difficult to sleep train, but that's only because I didn't have to sleep train his brothers.
Here he is on our monitor sleeping in his crib.
Hello, freedom!

He's super helpful now too!  Just look at how helpful he is when it comes to matching and folding socks-

Ok, so he needs a little work with folding, but he's getting the hang of it!
He LOVES the jumpy jump!
Here he is jumpin away while I shower his brothers.

He's rolling over, sparingly, he doesn't like to use his own energy if he doesn't have to.
He's sitting unassisted for longer periods of time.
He's lifting his butt in the air and pushing up with is arms, but not at the same time.  I'm not ready for him to crawl yet, so I'm ok that he's not that coordinated yet.
He's eating all kinds of stuff now.  Mostly pureed stuff, but he LOVES bread.
We gave him garlic cheese bread the other night and he would flip out of anyone came near his bread!  And you better watch out because those 2 little teeth are sharp!

And he's beginning to talk!  He doesn't realize it most of the time, but he's getting there.
Much to Jim's dismay, his first word was "mama" just like his brothers before him.  Although, also just like his brothers, he only says it when he's crying...
But still, I WIN once again!
He also says brother.  Well, he says, "bra-bra", but this seems to be the first word he says intentionally because as soon as his brothers leave him alone he says, "bra-bra" while he looks around for them.  I know rationally that it's probably just coincidental, but it's pretty impressive nonetheless!
Here he is saying crying, "mama".
I took this video because Jim kept denying that he was saying "mama".  So here's the proof!

I can't believe he's 6 months already.  Before know it he'll be a year.
Slow down, my tiny baby!

It's baaaaaaaaaack... The Nuffer Family Summer Camp 2018

Man, it's been awhile.  A long while.

The blog is baaaaaack! And so is the Nuffer Family Summer Camp!!!!!

The NFSC is going to be pretty different this year.  The big boys need to be challenged so much more than a few crafts and story books like when I first started the summer camp many moons ago.  With that said, I don't really know exactly what it will look like because I have to test the waters to see what interests them and what doesn't. My mom gave each of the boys a Little Passports membership, so we'll be using those in our weekly themes as well.  I have a preschooler, a second grader, and a fifth grader- needless to say, it should be interesting.  but no big deal, right?

Every day they'll spend their mornings doing some chores, spending some time outside, reading independantly, doing a little work in grade-level appropriate workbooks, doing an NFSC activity or two, and I think I'm going to teach the older boys to write in cursive. Phew!

Brian and Whitney get married!

Our family has been waiting for this day for well over a year!  My little brother, Brian, finally married Whitney a couple weeks ago.  Such a wonderful weekend!
I mean, how cute are they?!

The first night was the rehearsal, of course, but I didn't get many pictures.
I do have a fun little story, though...
Jackson was the ring bearer, and Whitney wanted him to walk arm and arm with the flower girl, Delaney.  But, he wouldn't do it.  I thought maybe it was because he didn't know her before that night, but no, that's way too simple for Jackson.  Jackson didn't want to walk down the aisle with Delaney because he thought if he walked down the (wedding) aisle with this stranger-girl, he'd be married to her!  bahahahahahahahaha!  That is hysterical!
Once we assured him that they would not be married if he walked arm and arm with this (super sweet) little girl, he was totally fine with it.
But look at their little faces.  And their little fists.  Hahahahaha!  This is t…

A Whole Lot of Random...

You guys know that my children are crazy.  And hilarious.  And random.
So here's a bunch of random moments from the Nuffer Nest.  Enjoy.
Sometimes, you just feel like Yoshi.

And sometimes, a tiny person steals my phone and takes 458 selfies that look just like this:

And sometimes, mom and grandma spend way too much time at Costco.

Other times, you smash your finger in a door and have to take a "quick" trip to urgent care. At least it wasn't broken.

And sometimes, life just gets hairy...

Other times, the Captain Underpants underwear you just got for your birthday has a cape, so you have to show it off by not wearing pants.

Sometimes, you're as cute as can be when you get a free apple at the grocery store.
(You guys, look at that little round belly- I just want to tickle and squeeze him!)

And sometimes, your brother helps you hang on when life gets tough.

Other times, they're there to give you a hug.

Sometimes, your future is so bright, you have to wear shades.
