He's 1/2 Way To 1

Drake turned 6 months old this month!  

He is getting so stinkin big! Aaron and I took him to his 6 month checkup on Thursday.  He is weighing in at 13 lbs 7 oz and 25 1/4 inches long.  The Dr said that he is on the smaller side but we all knew he would be.  We did get the go ahead to start giving him 2 oz of juice or water a day.  And he can have puffs and yogurt melts too. 

The last 6 months have flown by.  I wish that we could put our life into slow motion for the next oh... 18 years. In just the last couple of weeks he has started doing so many new things.  He babbles and 'talks' ALL the time now.  He can say 'dada' when he wants too but it doesn't happen often.  Last weekend Aaron and I really started working on him sitting unassisted.  And about 2 days later he was doing it.  It isn't a perfect up and down sit but he can balance himself without being helped for several minutes now.  He still doesn't roll from belly to back very often (because he HATES being on his tummy) but he rolls from his back to his belly (mostly in his sleep.)  Tonight while sitting in the hotel (in Branson), he found that if he just keeps rolling and rolling he can get to where he wants to go by himself.  I think that way may have a semi mobile baby soon. 

I don't want my baby to not be a baby anymore.
