6 Months! A half a year has gone by?!?

A lot has happened since the last posting.  Owen had his 6 month appointment.  He weighs 12 pounds 10.6 ounces and is 25 inches long.  He is still below the 3rd percentile, but has been eating very well lately.  He has been on break from day care since December 15th, when he came down with a case of pink eye.  He has been using the break to get over all of his sicknesses.  I am sure he will begin getting sick again when he returns on Jan 3rd.

We began solid foods last week- rice cereal.  He is not a fan quite yet.  He just lets it all run out of his mouth and gets fussy.  If I sing to him, he will calm down and eat a little.  His favorite song? "Jingle Bells".  We tried sweet potatoes last night and he likes them.  I am going to try to make his food... we will see how long I can do this without being overly stressed- I can't even make dinner for Andy and I on some nights!  I am using Annabel Karmel's book Top 100 Baby Purees for some of the meals.

Some of the things Owen is doing at 6 months:
- just about to sit up by himself (can hold onto his toy to sit up)
- still resistant to tummy time and will roll to his back as soon as he is put on his tummy
- making the cutest sounds ever and giggling like crazy
- sleeping a ton! and eating a lot
- interacting with toys, hits them to make the noises
- not as distracted when nursing as he was last month
- happy as can be, unless he is tired- then he goes down for a nap and falls asleep fairly quickly

I cannot believe it has already been 6 months. Owen has been a ton of fun!  We look forward to all of the great moments we have ahead of us :)
