Happy 1/2 Brithday, Nathan!!!!!

Today Nathan is 6 months old! I can't believe it!!! We went for his 6th month check-up today and here are his stats. 20 pounds, 2 oz (8.3 pounds at birth). 27.5 inches in length (20.5 at birth). The doctor said he was off the charts for everything but was proportional, so he wasn't a "fat" baby.. just a big one. He got his shots and the flu shot. He handled it all well. Took a good long nap and has been a little bit grumpy but otherwise fine. Kent switched out his carseat. He's now in a convertible seat, so no more lugging a big infant carrier around. He also took a bath sitting up in the sink, so no more baby tub. He also had some table food this evening. Mashed potatoes. He LOVED it. He hates the jarred stuff.. but he gobbled the potatoes up. I didn't give him much. Just enough to give him a taste of it.

Some of the things Nathan is doing now at 6 months:
Rolling all over the place.
Sitting unassisted with only a few unbalanced fall.
Gets all fours and rocks.
Has scooted backwards a bit.
Can pivot to whatever direction he wants to roll.
Takes 2-3 naps a day.
Still getting up several times during the night.
He is still nursing very well.
He smiles and laughs, A LOT.
Likes to drive his motor boat (blow raspberries).
Gets vocal but no constant sounds.

Happy 6 months, Nathan!!!
