My Little Boy is Six Months Old!

Robinson's Six Month Stats:
Length: 28" (97th percentile)
Weight: 18 lbs (50-75th percentile)

My little boy is long and lean! His check-up went very well. What's Robinson into these days? He loves his bouncy seat, jumperoo and walker. He rolls very well but shows no indication of crawling. I can tell he is capable of sitting up unassisted, but the thought has not yet occurred to him, so I have to prop him up or set him in his Bumbo. Supporting the weight of his giant pumpkin probably seems like a daunting task to him.

He hates every type of cereal I've tried to feed him, despite all my efforts to find the perfect temperature, consistency, and mixture with baby food. He does, however, enjoy baby food by itself. Sweet potatoes and bananas are a big hit right now. After two months of gentle coaxing to try and get him to eat solids (which was met with much protest by Rob), when he finally did open up and eat a spoonful of sweet potatoes for the first time I was so overwhelmed with pride that I had to excuse myself to another room for a moment. I didn't want him to see me cry. How pitiful is that?

Robinson is very happy in his crib. He loves his mobile, and is happy every night when I put him to bed. He sleeps through the night and wakes up with a smile on his face. Plucking him out of his crib first thing in the morning is the best part of my day!

The dogs are still doing really well with him.  The sight of the dogs makes Robinson smile and laugh. He likes to reach out and grab their fur, and the girls are very good with him. I sure hope that continues.

Up next: baby-proofing the house and making more of an effort to organize playdates. To sign up for mommy and baby classes or not, that is the question...
