Blake at 6 months

My baby is 6 months old! Boy, time is sure flying! He is so big and so sweet. He has the most pleasant and patient disposition-which has been a sanity saver some days.

His stats:
Weight: 17 lbs 9.5 ounces (50th percentile)
Height: 27 inches (75th percentile)
Head Circumference: 44.5 cm. (about 85th percentile)

Blake's interests and tricks:

*He rolls all over the floor but doesn't sit yet. Still pretty wobbly in that department but is working on it.

*He loves to eat solid foods. His favorites are squash, sweet potatoes, green beans, peas and rice cereal mixed with formula. He doesn't care a whole lot for fruits and HATES the baby food meats. I have made some baby food for him but we haven't gotten into the meat stuff much yet. He gets excited when you put him in the high chair and get his bib on. He knows good stuff is coming! He lunges for the spoon and has started to grab it too. Aye yi yi!

*He also loves water from a sippy cup. He took to that thing right away. I'm thinking he's gonna be my easiest to wean from the bottle and pacifier!

*He loves his daddy. He loves to snuggle with him and he will reach up and grab Blaine's goatee. One of our friends also has a goatee. He was holding Blake in church and I'm sure Blake thought is was Blaine. He reached up, felt that goatee and layed his head down on Eric's shoulder and was out cold. Awesome!

*He loves music and toys that make noise.

*His Indian name is Baby Stinkin' Toe. He has the stinkiest baby feet I've ever smelt! I can smell him through his socks/jammies some days. I have to wash them good, dry them well and powder them up with baby powder to keep the smell at bay! Hope he outgrows that! Haha!

Here is Blake getting his first bites of solid food. Its home made applesauce. He was a good sport and excited about stuff coming to his mouth but he didn't love it!

What a good sport! As I type this, I realize he will be 7 months old in a couple of days. I can feel the first little points of a new sharp tooth poking through. The older kids are excited about this and want to put their finger in his mouth for him to bite on. Haha! That game won't be so much fun pretty soon!

Can't believe that he will be 7 months soon, but then again I can't believe Jayder bug will be 9 months next week. Time sure flies, but each stage is so much fun! Love the video by the way too funny!
