6 Months

Wow 6 months, I really can't believe he is 6 months already. It feels like we just came home with him. He is changing so much everyday, he is getting close to crawling, he goes backwards a little and in circles sometimes. He does this thing where he pushes up on his toes and fingers- it's pretty funny and makes me laugh every time he does it! He had his 6 month check up last week and is 20lbs!! We are now on the search for a new car seat! They said he was 27in., but he was pretty squirmy so I don't really pay attention to that. He is mostly wearing 9-12month clothes, we even had to exchange some 9month pants he got for X-mas (the bulky cloth diapers don't help much w/ that!). He LOVES eating food and is way more into it than Rowan was at his age. We are looking for new stuff to buy so he can try some different stuff- we make all our baby food (but I'm sure that doesn't surprise you right? ;) ).

He really is such a happy baby, Rowan wasn't an overly fussy baby or anything, but he was no where near as happy as Eli. Of course he does have his moments, but most of the time he is just happy happy!! I can't wait to see what he's going to be like when he's older. Mike thinks he's going to be more of a handful than Rowan- I don't really see how that could possibly happen!

He grabs at everything, I'm pretty sure he would have not appreciated the words I used the other day when he touched my NEW camera w/ sweet potatoes on his hands!! Good thing he doesn't understand too much yet!

He's starting to drool more, no teeth yet, but I'm sure it won't be long before I have to put bibs on him more often. Or just staqrt changing his clothes a lot.

He loves to clap, and gets really excited when we say "Yeah Eli!" and clap with him. He is so much fun! He's still almost sitting up. If only we could get through all his sleeping issues everything would be great all the time, but that is a whole different post :)

Too cute! Of the first year, I like this age the best. This is when every day is something new and exciting!
