6 month update!

I can't believe my baby is 6 months old already! Everyday Spencer is doing something new! He is eating more fruits & vegetables; trying to sit up on his own; has discovered his voice (babbling, screaming, screeching, etc)! At his 6 month check-up, he weighed in at 17lbs 12.5 oz (50th %tile), and 28 inches (90th %tile). However, a week later when we took him back for a cold, he was weighing in at 18lbs 3oz. The pedi said that it's expected for a baby to gain about a 1oz a day for the first year.

I love my naps!

Who doesn't love a picture of a baby (and daddy) napping?

It's hard working being a baby!

We're eating solids!

At the 4 month check-up, we were told to begin solids (cereal). Little did the pediatrician know, we started them a few days earlier. The cereal tasted like, what I would imagine, wallpaper paste to taste like; therefore, we jumped the gun a little sooner to add in fruit. We already knew that Spencer was OK with prune juice and apple juice, so we stared with adding in prunes or applesauce. It was a tough start, but we eventually caught onto it! Also, I learned to love exersaucer!
