Laughing and Laughing

A few days ago I went out to dinner with Mommy, Daddy, Grandma, and Uncle Gar. Uncle Gar was popping his hand up over the back of my seat...it was SO funny! He kept doing it for a long time and I was just laughing and laughing. The people at the table next to us were watching me and laughing too. Grandma remembered she had video on her phone and they recorded the end of us playing. I was laughing harder in the beginning but the video is still pretty funny. Here it is...

A lot going on...

I went and got my 6 month pictures taken! I was happy and smiley when Mommy was holding me but as soon as she set me down to get my pictures taken I'd get grumpy. We had to take a break and let another kid go so I could calm down. I had a different photographer when I got back and I started having fun. I was sitting by myself but only for a little while. I kept tipping over and Mommy would catch me. I can't wait until I can sit up by myself for a long time! Here's a couple of my pictures...

I'm feeling better again....I think my ear infection is gone. I still have the sniffles a little bit so I'm going to sleep in my bouncy seat another night. Hopefully that will help keep the fluid from settling in my ears.

Last night, instead of sleeping my usual 10-11 hours, I woke up at 3am crying. Mommy and Daddy thought it was my ear bothering me but I was really just very hungry. They finally figured it out and gave me a bottle and I went right to sleep the rest of the night. They should've known because I've been eating a lot during the day too. I think I'm getting ready for a growth spurt and just need to eat more food.

Today I ate baby food for the first time! I've been having rice cereal for a week or two but it doesn't taste very good. I've been wanting a little more flavor so Mommy put a little bit of applesauce in my cereal and I loved it!

This afternoon I went on a walk with Mommy, Grandma, and Trinity. We walked up to the park and back. It was very exciting because it was my first stroller ride without my car seat! I sat in the stroller facing forward and looked around the whole time. Well, almost the whole time...I fell asleep about the last 10 minutes. Here I am at the end of our walk...

Well I'm off to bed!

My Half Birthday

Today's my half birthday...I'm officially .5 years old!!! I can't believe how fast these 6 months have gone by and how much I've changed since I was born.

Here I am on my birthday (7lbs 13 oz)...

And here I am about a week ago (18lbs 13 oz)...

I look completely different and I've gained 11 lbs in 6 months, can you believe it?!

I've been feeling pretty rotten again the last few days. Mommy took me to the doctor today and guess what....I have another ear infection. It's only in one ear this time so Dr. Snyder thinks it will probably go away on its own in a few days. I'm going to sleep in my bouncy seat tonight so I'll be propped up and my ear won't hurt as bad. Hopefully I'll be able to sleep through the night cuz I know I'm wearing Mommy and Daddy out waking up every half hour. The last couple nights they've let me sleep in their bed and that's helped a little :-)

By the way, today I weighed 19 lbs even!!

My First Solid Food

Guess what I did today........I ate rice cereal!! It was my first time eating solid food and I loved it! Dr. Snyder told Mommy I might only want a bite or two at first but I ate almost the whole bowl! I was really hungry when I woke up from my nap so I had 4oz from my bottle and then I got to eat my cereal. It was so good I could hardly wait for each bite.

Mommy put a lot of milk in it so it wouldn't be too thick and it was really runny. I ended up with food all over the place but that just made it more fun :-) It was even on my legs by the time I was done!

Back to the Doctor

I went to see Dr. Snyder again yesterday and my ear infections are all cleared up. He said my ears look beautiful :-)

They weighed me again and I've gained 11 oz in two weeks. I weigh 18 lbs 13 oz!! Dr. Snyder also said I can start eating rice cereal any day now. I can't wait! I watch mommy and daddy very intently when they eat. I wonder what food tastes like....

I Rolled Over!

Guess what I did today.... I rolled over!! I've been working so hard at it the last few days but haven't been able to do it on my own. Today Mommy put me on my tummy and I just rolled right over! Then she put me back on my tummy and turned around to get the camera and I rolled over again before she even came back! Now rolling over is a piece of cake and I'm not on my tummy for more than a few seconds :-) Its so much fun - I just smile and laugh every time! Here's me about to roll over...

Great Uncle Mike Visits

Well the antibiotics really helped...I'm back to my normal self :-)

My great uncle Mike was here visiting a few days ago. It was my first time meeting him and we had a lot of fun. Here we are...

The first night he was here we had dinner at Grandma's house with Uncle Gar, my 4 cousins and their mom, my Aunt Angela. Here's me with my cousins (Trinity-8, Kailynn-3mos, Domonic-almost 4, and Tamorah-almost 2)

The next night Great Uncle Mike, Grandma and Uncle Gar came over to our house and we played and played.
That's Grandma's dog Precious in the picture with us :-)

I don't get to see Great Uncle Mike very often because he lives in California, along with most of my family from Daddy's side. We had a lot of fun when he was here though and hopefully he will come back soon!
