Eric is 7 months & 1 week old!

This week Eric's first tooth popped thru! It's his bottom left tooth! Now that he has teeth (or should I say, tooth?) we bought him some veggie puffs. They are sorta like cherrios but better ingredients and made with vegetables instead of oats, I picked sweet potato (since they didn't have carrot). Eric thinks they are strange. He won't put them in his mouth, he picks them up and plays with them, but they don't look like his other food, lol! I will eat something and after I put my food in my mouth, I put his veggie puff in his mouth. He makes the most horrid face, like there is hard cardboard in his mouth, but I think he is starting to realize that it's food.

This week Eric has started using my throat as arm leverage so he can turn his body most of the way around as I carry him around the house, he wants to see where we are going!

Yesterday, in the middle of an activity, he stopped, looked at me and said, "yee-ing-u!" then went back to what he was doing. I'm not sure what he was trying to tell me, but it sure was cute!

This week I noticed he has also started to scootch around while in a sitting position. He sort of jumps up and ever-so-slightly forward. It doesn't get him anywhere very fast or far, but it seems to be lots of fun!

The first picture below is Eric's first tooth, the second picture is him tasting veggie puffs, the third picture is Eric featuring my favorite character from Suzy's Zoo... Witzy! Including the quilt I made for Eric, a blanket Twanda made (thank you!), the outfit and crib sheet from Grandma Linda (thank you!), and a book about Witzy's blocks I have. The last two are Christmas pix including mini santa and bare skin baby on a bear skin rug! Enjoy and Merry Christmas!!!

Eric is 7 months old!

We are teaching Bailey how to treat Eric, it seems to be going very well! They just love each other! :) In the below pix, Eric's shirt has a picture of a dog that looks like Bailey and it says, "My Best Friend: I'm a cute short-haired dog with a long body, short legs and droopy ears. I love to run and play. My favorite words are woof woof. I will follow you around for hours and hours wagging my tail. I'm cute!"

Eric is twenty-seven weeks old! (6 months and 3 weeks)

This week Eric found a new favorite sleeping postion - with his little butt in the air!!! He also took his first bath in the big boy bathtub and loved it! I was so relieved since he doesn't like the baby bathtub that fits in the kitchen sink. (how cute is that little bare tush?!?!?!?!)

He is also fascinated by the carpeting, he will just sit and pet it - I remember doing something similar (when I was a bit older) at my grandfather's house with his thick green shag carpeting (I could write my name!) Other super fun things this week are trying to hang upside down, and playing peek-a-boo, as well as "what's that sound?"

Now, as I walk (with Eric in my arms) he places his hand on my neck for leverage to postion himself so he can see where we are going. Sitting can be a form of forward motion too, Eric is able to wiggle forward in a seating position. It doesn't get him very far very fast, but he is definately covering ground!

And the most amazing thing this week, he pulled himself up from sitting to a standing position without any help! I got it on video and will try to put that video on this blog as soon as possible!

Eric is twenty-six weeks old! (6 months and 2 weeks)

This week was a very special week because Eric's Great Grandmother Marge came all the way from New York to meet him! Pix below!!!

This week Eric got shots :( 4 of them, plus one he had to drink, poor little guy! But we did get Bugs Bunny and Wiley Coyote band-aids, cool! At his appointment, he weighed 15.11 pounds and was 26.5 inches tall!

This week Eric started moving objects from one hand to the other! He also will immitate some of the movements I make, for example, if I push the button on his toy that makes a noise, he will do it too!
