Grant - 6 months

Grant is the happiest baby. He looks like this most of the time. I don't want to seem like I keep bragging about him on here, but he seriously could not be any easier - I'll just leave it at that.

He turned 6 months old today. I can't believe how fast time is flying by. He is getting big so fast, but I won't know exactly how big until his 6 month checkup which won't be until next month because we're in St. George and his pediatrician is in American Fork, blah, blah, blah. Anyway he's heavy and long and his head is huge. He seems to be maybe a little developmentally behind physically. He's rolled over from front to back and back to front exactly one time each, and it happened to be on the same day. I blame his "laziness", as I call it, on his big old head - it's hard to move around when you have to maneuver that thing. But he likes his jumperoo, and sits and plays with toys in his bumbo, and is putting everything he can get his hands on into his mouth, so I think he's just fine. Plus, how can I complain when he's always smiling at me like that?!

He got his first tooth on Sunday, June 24th (3 days ago) and bit me while nursing for the first time today. He was not happy with my reaction but didn't pout for long. Hopefully it won't take too long for him to learn that that is NOT okay.  He hasn't liked rice cereal the two times he's had it and gagged on the rice wafer thing I gave him today. After that he wanted nothing more to do with it. That's fine, I'm okay with moving forward slowly on the food thing.

Grant has gotten SO playful and is very ticklish and giggly. He seems to like everyone, even his annoying sisters, and is happy with whomever is holding him. He's gotten more wiggly and there's a feisty streak in his emerging personality. For instance, he likes to grab my face or hair and pull me close, growl, squeal and get me to nibble on his cheeks. :)

I could do that all day long.

Meh. Says who. He's probably just too happy to care to try. Why move forward with certain skills when just hanging out and smiling at Mommy makes him happy enough. :)
