Six Months

Micah turned six months old today!! Can you believe how the time is flying? Micah decided to sleep in until 9 in honor of his half birthday. We had a leisurely morning, and he did get to listen to a nice rendition of "Happy Half Birthday" from his Grammy and Goppy. We spent the afternoon lounging at the pool with Daddy. It was such a pleasant day - the weather was perfect, the sky was clear, and there was a nice breeze blowing. The pool was nice and warm, and Micah was all smiles.

While Mommy took some time to swim laps (FINALLY getting my act together and exercising again!!), Micah took a trip with Daddy to the store, and napped the entire time. We arrived home around 4:30 or so. We gave Micah a bath (this is the 2nd night we bathed Micah as he SAT in the bath tub!!) and I fed him some dinner (a little milk, some green beans, rice cereal and avocado). Daddy left for work, and Micah and I played for a few more hours before bedtime. Here are some pictures from Micah's first time sitting in the bathtub (can you tell he likes to eat duck?):

This post seems like a good opportunity to review some of his recent milestones. Let's start with food. Micah is eating really well - we have now tried peas, green beans, avocado, bananas, squash, sweet potatoes, and carrots. We added a second meal in the past few days because he was getting hungry in the evenings.

He is also sitting really well - still not reliable enough for me to walk away and leave him when he is sitting, but he is fairly sturdy - he can definitely chew on the hooves of his toy giraffe while he is sitting! He is still teething - those bottom two teeth are just dying to break through. After much waiting, he is rolling from back to front with some frequency - in his crib, on the floor, on the grass at a friend's birthday bbq on Saturday, at playgroup, when he sees a toy he wants... I think he just likes to do things on his terms and in his own way. He is definitely passing objects from hand to hand, and he seems to be exploring the idea of crawling.

So, with that, happy half birthday, baby boy! I'd like to end with a few fun videos of Micah with his duck (press the triangle on the lower left corner to play!):
