Half of a Year Old!!!

What?! How did this happen?

Cooper is 6 months old!! Look at this little sweet chubby baby!!

He had his 6 month well-baby check yesterday. He weighed in at 18 lbs. 6 oz. and was 26 inches long. 75th percentile for weight, and 50th percentile for height. He is meeting all of his milestones, and is doing so great! He got 1 shot yesterday, as well as the oral rotavirus vaccine.

At 6 months, Cooper is sitting up on his own for small periods of time, doing "Sooooo big!", waving (somtimes ;) ), screeching and just being generally noisy, babbling-including "Dada!", loves playing in his exersaucer, loves playing with toys, loves his big sister, and he loves to EAT! :)

Cooper is still nursing up a storm (6-7 times a day to be exact....haha), as well as eating solids 2 times a day. He has loved everything except green beans so far. Yesterday we tried avacado and he loved that! Tomorrow I am going to add in a solid meal at breakfast time. I picked up some of the YoBaby yogurt cups that have cereal added to them, so we shall see how he likes them.

We are finally getting on a good, dependable (most of the time!) schedule! Yay!! He goes to bed around 7:00 p.m., sleeps until around 5:00 a.m. eats and goes right back to sleep until sometime between 7:00 and 7:30. He then goes down for a nap around 9:00 and sleeps until around 11:00. He goes back down for a nap around 2:00, and I try to get him to sleep until 3:30 or 4:00 so that he can make it to bedtime.

He is such a joy, and we can't imagine our lives without him!!

We love you, sweet boy!!! Happy 1/2 birthday!!!! :)
