Happy 6 Months, Colson!

Today is Colson's half birthday. He is a whopping 6 months old today. *tear*

For the past few weeks we have been giving Colson solids. So far this kid loves everything that I have put in his mouth—rice cereal, peas, carrots, and green beans...all made by your's truly, of course! :o) After a few more days of green beans we're going to try sweet potato, then avocado and squash. I just made peaches today so they are freezing and I have to buy some more fruits to make and freeze—pears, plums, bananas, and apples are definitely on my to buy list. I would also like, at some point, to do mango and pumpkin.

Colson still doesn't love to roll over...in any direction. He CAN roll both ways but I think this kid is so content that he is perfectly fine just chillin' with whatever toy he can reach and just doesn't roll anywhere. In a few more weeks, if he's not rolling across the floor, I might start to get a little concerned. :o/

We're still working on sitting up. Whenever we practice, he always straightens his body to where he would plant the back of his head on the ground if my leg wasn't in between the two...which is not good. If he is distracted with a toy he can sit for a bit but them he straightens his body back out. I'm starting to think that my child might just go straight to crawling and avoid rolling and sitting up because he sure does try to move those little legs when he's on his tummy.

Colson is now officially sleeping in his crib, in his own room. It was a long time coming but we finally moved him from our room. And actually, since we have done so he is sleeping an extra hour or two—I think because Nicks alarm clock is not waking him up. So now both of my children are asleep around 9 and Colson wakes up between 8 and 9 in the morning while Hannah wakes up between 9 and 10.

He's wearing size 3 diapers now—I just moved him up a size last week, and he's wearing 3-6 month and 6 month clothes.

Colson doesn't have his 6 month appointment for awhile. It is actually 2 days shy of him turning 7 months so I don't have his stats for you. :o(

But Colson is definitely a buddle of joy. He is pretty happy all day long. He smiles all the time and he just lights up my heart! :o)

We love you little man!
