6 months old

 Six Months Old
This little Mister just turned 6 months old on October 28th. Can you believe it? No! I can't! He does just keep getting cuter and more fun if that is even possible. I am still loving being this little mans mommy and I will forever. I love to stay at home. Our day consists of eating, changing diapers, swinging, playing outside, taking a bath, reading books, playing inside, tickling, sleeping, going on walks and me just staring that this cutie while we explores and wonders around. Life could not be sweeter.

We went to his six month Dr. check up on November first and he is a healthy little monkey indeed. Here are his stats.
Weight: 17.44 lbs 47%tile
Height: 27 inches 69%tile
Head: 16.9 inches 27%tile (little head haha)
The Dr. Says he is doing great and his appointment went wonderfully. He was only sad for like 30 seconds when he got his shots, but he was pretty tough and he loved the oral medicine they gave him. He does have a little cyst above his right eye but the doctor said it is nothing to worry about and that it will probably go away on its own but he will check it again on his next visit. He also said he will be probably be getting teeth any day now. He is teething. He also said that we can start him on rice cereal now! yay! and in two weeks we can introduce vegetables.

Rice Cereal-November 1st
This is Dux's first reaction to his first bite of rice cereal. He doesn't look too sure but he warmed up to it a bit and seemed to like it a little more as he had more and more.

Daddy feeding him. He actually did pretty good for his first time and we took a million pictures and videos because his faces were soo funny

mmmm....there we go he is liking it a little more. We had to let him play with one of his other spoons to distract him from trying to grab his bowl or spoon we were feeding him with. 

This one is of him on his third day of rice cereal today at lunch time. He is so messy but it getting a little more used to it kinda. He can't make up him mind. Yesterday at lunch it gagged him and he spit up everywhere. Today he didn't gag so that is a good sign he even smiled a few times after some bites. This is the picture we sent to daddy while he was at school today.

One more new post underneath this one on our October happenings
