OMG, my baby is 6 months old already!!! Where does the time go? He is doing so many "bigger" boy things now (not Big Boy things - he is still my little baby!!!) He is really enjoying Mookie and Bailey, he laughs at things they do and his eyes watch them run around. Scott took Eric in the backyard and held him while kicking Bailey's soccer ball to Bailey. Eric thought it was the funniest thing, he just kept laughing and laughing! (I recorded his laughing, there is no video, just the sound of bailey barking and running around and Eric laughing, I can email it to you if you want to hear it, just let me know. I can't get it embedded into this blog for whatever reason.)
Eric can also hold a sitting position now, if I prop him up. He is very interested in patterns on clothing; as well as by our faces, he studies us by holding our faces with his little tiny hands then grabs our ears or plays with my hair by stroking it repeatedly.
The teething has slowed way down this week and he is much happier for it. He is also happy to hear that his 6 month shots got postponed because the doctor is taking an extra long Thanksgiving vacation.
This week we tried bananas as well as applesauce. Eric didn't seem to like the banana at all, I'm guessing it was a texture issue and we can try again later. The applesauce seemed acceptable, but the carrots are still number one with the sweet potatoes at a close second! Also, this week Eric started sleeping in his crib during the night. His co-sleeper is getting small (or I guess he is getting big, lol) and he seems uncomfortable in it, so we moved to the crib and he is doing wonderfully. I, on the other hand, am a complete wreck. I feel like he is growing up too fast because he is independent enough to sleep in his own room. I have the baby video monitor on my night stand and I stay up all night watching him and only stop watching to go into his room to feed him (or comfort him if he wakes up crying).
Below, I've got a cute pic and some videos to share, enjoy!
