The big SIX months old!

Ok well really it isn't "the big one", but it feels like a big milestone. Six months ago Bradley was born and is seems like just yesterday we were waiting for his arrival. Why does this precious time go by so fast?

So Bradley is six months old and he now weighs 19 pounds and 11 ounces! He has doubled his birth weight plus a few pounds! He is so vocal now and is really learning how to communicate with us. I can tell when he is "saying" I am hungry, and even the difference between hungry for food and hungry for milk. We even think he has been saying mom or mama, but mostly when he is crying for something.

We starting giving him fruits and vegetables about one weeks before he turned 6 months and he did great! He was so happy to be eating "real" food again and he loved all of the different flavors!

Then about a few days later we started to introduce cereal again for something more substaintial to keep him feeling satisfied. Finally it didn't make his belly upset, so now he is eating a little bit of cereal and then a good serving of either a fruit or a veggie. Believe it or not his favorites are peas and bananas! Of course the bananas are every kids favorite but peas, really? Good boy! The bananas are a special treat because they cause a bit of an, umm, issue if you know what I mean.

He is rolling over but hasn't been getting around the house yet. He sits up very well and loves bouncing in his bouncer, and bouncing on anything for that matter. He would rather be standing or bouncing than sitting or laying on the floor. He is very active for someone who isn't even mobile yet.
He is such a happy baby and so much fun to watch grow!
