6 Months

Baby G is 6 months old today. He's growing so quickly! This past couple of weeks he has been practicing his crawling, and he's getting better at it, but still not quite there. He's got his leg movements down, but still hasn't figured out how to move his arms forward yet. The rolling over is now not a problem for him; we wondered if he would ever roll over, now he won't stop. He's gotten really good at getting himself around the living room. He's also waking up in the middle of the night on his hands and knees.

Baby G is a bundle of energy. Most of the time he is so happy, but sometimes lately he has become quite the whiner. The poor thing has a tooth coming through and he is fussy a lot.

He's made tons of progress with solids. He's now eating avocados, pears, sweet potatoes, sweet peas, carrots, peaches, apples, and bananas. Tomorrow he'll try prunes. That should be fun. He's gone from regularly drinking 40oz. of formula a day to about 30. With that change and the constant exercise he should start thinning out soon. The boy is huge, 22lbs. and has moved out of his infant car seat and into the big boy convertible car seat. I wish I had more pictures to post, but we've all been so busy that most of our free time is spent trying to catch up on sleep.

We'll he's whining right now, so I need to go play with him...and I've got to go to work...ugh.

He's such a cutie! He will thin out. Both my kids looked like Mr Michelin (do you know that character?) when they were little but soon lost it as they got more mobile. There's more fat on a chip (fry as you would say) than on both of them now. That's a good northern England saying. Do you want a translation lol?

LOL. No translation needed :)

Hey Nancy;
How are you doing? 6 months, wow time flies. Pretty soon he'll be running around like there's no tomorrow. They do grow up fast, that's for sure.

Take care;
