Guess Who's Six Months Old Already!

I can't believe we've hit this mark so soon!  Here are some notes about Stanford at six months old:
  • Can roll both ways, but doesn't do it regularly.  He prefers to be sitting up, and I like to hold him, so he's not usually on the ground for long.  But when he is, he kicks himself in circles and is almost never in the same place.
  • Still wears 3-6 month clothes.  His doctor appointment is not for a couple weeks, so I don't know his weight and height yet.
  • Finished nursing.  Now he eats 8 oz. bottles four times a day.  He can hold his own bottle.  The kids like to help feed him too.
  • Started eating rice cereal and one veggie, but is still getting the hang of the eating part.
  • No more swaddling at night, but still sleeps great.  He also takes 3 naps during the day.
  • Drools nonstop so his shirts are always wet, but still no teeth yet.  Always wants to chew on things, especially his toes.
  • Likes to grab anything within reach and play with toys.
  • So calm all the time.  I don't worry about taking him anywhere because he never fusses about anything.  He is such an angel baby and just goes with the flow.
  • Likes to play in the exersaucer and try to eat the toys.  He gets tired after a while though since his back isn't quite strong enough.
  • Has dark grayish eyes.
  • Is quick to laugh and loves to watch people.
*Update: At his doctor appt, he weighed 15 lbs. 9 oz. (12%) and measured 27 inches (63%).  Tall and skinny like the other kids were.  He also finally cut his first two bottom teeth!

We all love our happy little guy!
