6 Month Birthday

I can't believe our little miracle is now 6 months old. I look at him and I can still remember the very first time I held him in my arms and was so amazed at how instantly you can fall in love with something so small. I am so happy that he is growing and doing things that are age appropriate but I can't help but wish that he could stay this age forever. I am constantly in awe
of him and just love to watch his little expressions.

At 6 months Brady is now eating more solids. He eats some baby oatmeal usually for either breakfast or lunch and then a stage 1 veggie for dinner in the evening. He has had sweet potatoes, squash, carrots, green beans, and green peas. Since he has had all of the veggies we are now starting on the fruits, with peaches. He seems to enjoy them all. He is still nursing anywhere from 2-4 hours during the day. He also enjoys drinking water from a glass or through a straw. Most of it usually comes right back out his mouth but he enjoys drinking like mommy and daddy.

We are still toothless but I feel any day we could find something white and shiny coming through the gum. He is still slobbering all over the place and occasionally gets upset at night for what we assume is pain in his mouth.

He enjoys playing more all the time. He likes to be read to, play in his jumper and now with his new Leap Frog learning table. He can almost sit up by himself and he is trying hard to crawl when he is laying on his tummy. He can even scoot himself forward sometimes.

At his 6 month check up he weighed 17 lbs 9.5 ounces, was 28.5 inches long with a head circumference of 18.25. His weight is in the 25-50th percentile and his height and head are both in the 95th percentile. The doctor said that he was growing appropriate and everything checked out okay. He had to have an oral vaccine and three shots, but took it like a champ. He cried for about 5 seconds and then was smiling at the nurse afterwards.

I will leave you with a sweet smile from my sunshine and one sweet little boy!!!
