I've become a bit of a high maintenance baby so it's tough for Mom to keep up with my postings.
I continue to be "Baby Hawk" with my crazy hair, especially first thing in the morning.
I just recently started to roll over unassisted. Both ways, but still not all that often. Not yet sitting up unassisted, though. Mom thinks it's because I am always held. It's not that I demand to be held but rather I am the last baby in the family so everyone is soaking me up as much as possible.
I am still drinking breast milk and in the last week have started a bit of solids - brown rice cereal, carrots, and sweet potatoes. I do enjoy an occasional Mum Mum cracker, too.
I LOVE my siblings and my part-time siblings at the sitters house. I adore my sitter Ms. B and Ms. KN who also watches me while mom teaches art.
Nan makes me smile.
Dad taught me to say "Dada" which I sing throughout the day.
I squeal - a lot! Always with delightful glee and especially when I am surrounded by noise. Mom and Dad call it Klingon Opera.
Smiling is a favorite past time - I smile A LOT.
Sleep at night is not a favorite past time. I am totally a night owl.
Shower and bath time are favorite times of the day.
I just sprouted two new teeth (front bottom). This happened about 2 weeks before turning 6 months.
The swing is my desired sleep place for naps. We are working on other places and I am getting there slowly.
Pink blankie is still my favorite. Fortunately, we now have two back up's.
We're still rocking the cloth diapers.
