6 month stats

Blogging has slowly moved to the back burner as baby boy has become much more mobile. I can no longer leave him in one place and expect him to be there when I come back! Eek! Carson isn't quite crawling but he is scooting and rolling all over the place. So, now that he's napping, I can take a sec to update my super neglected online journal!

Weight: 16 lbs 14 oz, 25-50 percentile

Height: 29 inches, literally off the charts for percentile

Teeth: Two bottom ones and two top ones have been trying to come in for a week or so

Mobility: Sitting for about a minute before toppling over, scooting, rolling

Likes: sneezing, dancing to music, playing in the exercauser, petting the kitties (aka: ripping out their fur), rolling, pulling hair, feeling faces, sucking on toes, playing with water, eating, the color red, sucking on his left thumb, toys, holding his own bottle

Dislikes: laying on his back on changing table, keeping socks on

Vocals: we went through a growling faze, high pitched squeals, lots of laughing, no consonant sounds yet...although I pretty much spend my days saying "dada" over and over and over

Firsts: first veggies, first airplane ride (he did great), first out of state trip, first time on the top of a mountain

We have started introducing new veggies to the little man. Unfortunately, after a few days of carrots, he broke out in a rash. We haven't tried them again but have tried sweet potatoes and he really loves them! We will give carrots another go round in a few weeks. He still doesn't seem to tolerate wheat very well. It gives him a belly ache. Again, we will try another time in a few weeks. Next up is squash! Yum, yum!

He has started to really become attached to Ross. At one point recently, Ross had said that he felt like a cactus when he tried to hold Carson....the baby would cry and try to get away. He was feeling really discouraged and it broke our hearts. Well, in the past few weeks, all of that has changed! I am so happy! When Ross comes home, C leans out of my arms and tries with all of his might to get to Daddy! Talk about a warm welcome home! Last night, we were sitting on the couch and the baby moved back and forth between me and Ross for like 30 minutes! It was so cute. It's like he is realizing that he can get lovin' from us both!

*heading to Albuquerque on baby's first plane pics are yucky*
