Joseph this month you have been eating all kinds of stuff! Rice cereal, oatmeal, teething wafers, baby food, bananas, wash rags and your own feet. You are such a stinker and dislike veggies so we have to trick you by dipping the spoon in fruits too or else you will spit it everywhere. Speaking of spitting, you have learned how and do it often.
You are getting pretty vocal and say sounds like “mmm” and “gaga.” I’m pretty sure you say “mama” in your own way and I swear you said “hi” to me one morning. We have a theory this will be your first word because M and I say hello and hi to you ALL the time.
We have been practicing sitting up these days and you love this new position because you can see everything and grab at your toys. Sitting up is also fun in the bath and pool because you get to splash around. We even tried swinging a few times this month and you always get a huge smile on your face when we push you a little higher. When you do lay down on the floor you roll immediately onto your tummy making diaper changes more of a wrestling match.
We have not had your 6 month check up yet but we had a visit to the doctor due to pink eye and a cold. You weighed 14lb 4oz and were 26 inches long. You are still in size 2 diapers and 3-6 month clothing. Your hair is coming in blonde and your BIG eyes are bright blue.
