Look at these vintage pics in my bouncy seat! Now I can pull those crazy bugs right off, and pretty much do every time. Mom says I'm like a little Hercules.
Mom is just starting to put away my 3-6 month clothes. I told her I was tired of looking homeless at school with my high water pants and tight shirts. I mean I'm all about showing off the guns but it was starting to look a little rediculous. Plus who doesn't love an entirely new wardrobe!? The 6-9 month stuff is still pretty big on me, but I'm sure I'll grow into them in no time! I'm also still rocking the medium setting on my diapers but mom has started adding a bit more fluff because I've decided to become a bit of a super soaker.
We haven't done any grown up food in a few months, but now that I have TWO teeth, mom tells me it's time to try again. It's either that or she's sending me to college with my bottles. Since I don't think I'll be mackin' on the hunny's with my Enfamil in hand, I suppose I can try and master the spoon....or at the very least learn to not choke and gag before the food has even touched my lips. Six months old and I'm already a food snob, mama's really in for it!
I've mastered a new trick this month! Yep, you got it, sitting! One day I just surprised mom by not toppling over for almost 30 min! She couldn't believe her eyes....especially when I reached over for a toy and not only did I not face plant it like usual, I sat right back up. I'm still not rolling over, I get about as far over as you can without completely turning and then just roll back the other way. One day I'll get it and mom will think I've rediscovered the wheel she'll be so excited. Oh and dad is convinced I'll be walking anyday now because if you hold my hands when I'm standing, I will take steps. I don't think I'll be running a marathon anytime soon, but at least I've got the whole right-left-right-left going for me!
One of the most exciting things this month was my very first trip to Ohio for Grandma Debbie's Birthday! I even got to ride on a plane! I did pretty good, didn't sleep as much as mommy would have liked, but I was happy and all the flight attendants loved me. Duh. Who doesn't love me?! I had a fun trip meeting all of daddy's family and mommy's old friends.....even went out on a date with Miss Harper. She's older than me, a cougar if you will, but I think I impressed her with my smooth moves!
My favorite part of the whole trip though may have been Grandpa Jack's fish. I sat with Grandma for hours just watching them swim back and forth, slapping the glass and talking away to all the fishies. Looks like mom will be getting zoo passes this summer so we can make lots of trips to the aquarium!
Guess that about wraps it up! See you all next month! I don't know about you all, but I'm SOOO ready for spring! All this winter coat, hat and gloves business is getting old!
