6 months old!

My baby boy is 6 months old today!

This is basically what he looks like most of the day, squealing and laughing!

Here is an update of what he has done/learned over the last month.

Sleeping: Takes only 2 naps a day about 1-2 hours each. Down for the night around 8 p.m. wakes once or twice to eat. Has slept through the night a few times, but that doesn't mean I do. I still wake up and run in there wondering why he didn't wake up yet!

Eating: Drinks huge bottles of milkey! Eats dinner with us, usually has sweet potatoes, his favorite! Loves to suck on pickles, tried blueberry and apples and loved it. He liked peas the first time he had them, 2nd time wasn't too interested, but he was in a bad mood. I usually give him a taste of things I'm eating. He chewed on celery the other night at the Olive Garden and liked it.

Favorite toys: LOVES Sophie the Giraffe, a teething toy. I don't know what it is about her, but babies can't get enough. He also likes his jumperoo, unless he's in a bad mood.

New Discoveries: Feet and weener. He always is trying to chew on his piggies or is grabbing his weener when he's in the bath or getting changed. I don't enjoy the weener grabbing when I'm changing a poopy diaper. He puts every thing that he grabs in his mouth and he is grabbing everything! He is especially interested in tv remotes and cell phones. If you have it in your hand he drops his toy and goes after what you have.

Accomplishments: Pretty much sits on his own, a little wobbly at times and loses balance, but doing better. Can roll from tummy to back and back to tummy, scoots around during tummy time to get to other toys on his blanket.

Places he went: Old Salem, Mayberrry Days in Mt. Airy, NC Zoo with Aunt K, Dark in the Park, Autumn Leaves Festival, Lawson Grave, Moravian Graveyard.

New friends: Liam!
