6 Months

Well this is a little delayed in being posted. Charlie is actually over 7 months old at this point. But I never did a post for this 6 months, and since I don't journal, it's necessary. Bare with me.

18.5 lbs ~ 60%
17 3/4 Inches ~ 78%

Charlie went and sprung up and thinned out. I'm working on getting the baby fat back on him, cuz I love some baby chub.

Some highlights of the last couple months before he turned 6 months old:

Started eating solids, didn't like them.
Got to go swimming in his pool. Loved that. He likes to splash.
Started getting up on his knees and hands like he was going to crawl. Didn't.
Started sitting, but still was liable to topple over for no apparent reason.
Jabbers quite a bit, including saying what sounds exactly like, "HI DAD".
Is a total daddy's boy already. As soon as John walks in the door he's like 'Thank heavens, I'm saved!'
LOVES to be outside. Just sitting in and pulling the grass.
He's really getting responsive to his surroundings and is becoming so very fun.

If he's like his mom he'll deal with crack all this life... ha.

your pictures are so good! and of course Charlie is adorable!! Cael is such a squirt, all his numbers are in the 20% and lower group....weird though because he eats sooo much! I like a little chunk on the babies too!

Oh he is so handsome. Seriously, not just saying that. I love the 'almost crawling, sitting, and eating solids'. I'm so jealous of your Jackson trip (this is the first year we haven't been). You guys look so happy!
