Today you reach a milestone -- you are six months old! Wow, that is almost too much for me to take in. A lot of things happened in the first few months of your life...I wasn't really able to do very much with you, because I was sick and trying very hard to get well so that I could do the full-time mommy thing.
You have changed so much since you were born. Let's just talk about your size, for starters. Even though you were born six weeks early at a little over five pounds, you have definitely made up for it. Yesterday you weighed 18 pounds, kiddo! My arms are getting stronger and stronger every day just carrying you from here to there.
Reaching for things that are in front of you has been a new thing for a while now. And as soon as you have taken hold of that rattle, or teether, or stuffed animal in front of you, where does it go? That's right -- straight in your mouth. Maybe this is why you are doing so well and enjoying so much the introduction of solids into your life. Peaches, applesauce, peas, pears and sweet potatoes have all made their way onto your sensitive palate, and you seem to be okay with them so far.
