Long Overdue

Christian just had his 6 month appointment yesterday. I know...he's 7 months now. We got a little behind with Christmas. So, he is a perfect, healthy little boy with lots of energy. He weighs 17lbs 12oz and is 27in long. That puts him at 40% in weight and 60% in height. Of course his big noggin was at 90% measuring 46.5cm circumference. But, the good news is he's finally growing into that head. All those fruits and veggies are really helping him out. So, we are just going to keep on letting him eat as much as he can. I just ordered a high chair online because they don't sell the particular pattern I like in stores (I know...sounds dumb). So, we're using the little booster seat or just sitting him on our lap. It'll be nice to have a high chair to use.
A few weeks ago we decided to see if Christian would enjoy his jumper thing his Aunt gave him. It was love at first sight. He just loves to jump. He laughs and squeals with delight. He's usually good for about 30 min before he gets bored. It's amazing how much you can accomplish in 30 min.
After letting him jump around I let him roll all over the living room. He recently discovered that he can roll and roll and roll and push on the furniture to turn a different way. He gets around pretty well. He has also started to scoot a backwards army crawl. I think he's trying to go forward because he gets frustrated after a while. Sometimes he even tries to tuck his knees under him, but he's not crawling yet.
He's learning new things everyday. We are so lucky that he is a happy baby almost all of the time. Lately he's been a little more grumpy because his 2 bottom teeth were coming in. I wish I could get a picture of his teeth, but he always covers them with his tongue. I'll keep trying. I haven't been very good at getting pictures of him. If you want to know more about that click onto the link on the left that says Jeanne. You can read my blog.
So, that is the quick update of Christian and what he's been up to.

Christian is so cute. I can't believe how big he is. Maybe that is because Matthew is still small for his age. It's good that he is a happy baby too. It makes life a lot easier.

Wow, rolling around! That is so much fun to watch and all! They are so cute when they discover that they can move on their own to get around. Gotta love the jumper thing it's amazing how much the kids love those!
