I haven’t updated in a while – Andrew is changing everyday. He rolls over constantly. He can go both ways, but usually goes from back to tummy. Sometimes he still gets stuck when trying to go over to his back. Then he scoots around, too. Not crawling, but somehow he ends up in a totally different spot from where he started. He is getting stronger while sitting up with support. He still falls over pretty quickly when he's on his own, but we keep trying each day. He likes to grab his feet now and even gets them into his mouth sometimes. Everything goes into the mouth. There are still just those two bottom teeth, but I think more are coming soon. He loves to hold things and will get mad if you take something away he wants to hold. He loves feeling different textures. He will rub his hand on the leather couch or feel different ribbons on his taggie blanket. Even rubbing the carpet can keep him busy for a while. He loves to "help" when it's time to eat by grabbing the spoon or reaching out for the bowl. Speaking of eating, he loves all the different fruits and veggies. Andrew has a deep voice and babbles quite a bit. He has added some new high pitched squeals as well. He knows mom and dad for sure now. He is friendly and happy with strangers if mom and dad are holding him or close by, but gets nervous if we walk away.
We were to the doctor today for Andrew's 6 month check up. He got another A+ from the doctor. He weighs 17 lbs 13 oz and is 27 inches long. He had 4 shots today because they are already giving flu shots. He has to go back for a second flu shot in a month, but then no more shots until the one year appointment! Hooray! Actually he did quite well -- He cried a little bit right after the shots, but was a happy guy by the time I brought him down to the pharmacy to show off to my co-workers. He got a lot of "I love his hair" comments from the nurses and even the doctor. It is quite cute how it puffs straight out. :) He had a few long strands on the top that I just trimmed off this past weekend, so it stands up even more now.
