6 Months & A Couple of Firsts

I'm a little late posting this, but here is Logan's 6 month picture along with a couple of others from his first time eating rice cereal and trying out a sippy cup for the first time. He had the rice cereal for the first time on September 11, just a couple of weeks before he turned 6 months. He didn't seem as excited about it as I thought he would be but he didn't hate it either and he ate the whole bowl. After a few weeks though, he grew tired of it so we dropped it and moved on to pureed fruits and veggies. He's been a little picky with those so far too but really likes carrots and peaches. :)

We finally moved Logan to his crib at night. He's done really well. I was anxious about it at first but he slept 9 hours his first night in his crib! He's had several nights of sleeping 7+ hours but nothing consistant yet. Hopefully that will change soon; although I'm not getting my hopes up yet. :) He still mostly sleeps on me for his naps though just because he gets longer naps in that way. I really don't mind the snuggle time either. :)

He's not crawling yet but he acts like he wants to so we'll see what happens. Since about 4 months old, he's been walking with support (either holding on to someone's hands or in the walk around toy he has) so I think it's possible he may walk before he ever crawls! When he's on his tummy, he likes to roll from one side to the other. I'll post a video at the end of the post that shows him doing it at the beginning. It's probably not as cute to everyone else but I think it's pretty funny and adorable; especially when he does it a lot. :)

Logan is up to 5 teeth now too. He has 3 on the bottom which were the first ones to come in and now his top front teeth have also come in. There are days here and there where the teething has bothered him, but for the most part, it really hasn't been too bad so I'm very thankful for that!

He really likes his sippy cup but he can't hold on to it by himself unless he's laying down so using it can be a double edged sword when it calms him down but you have to sit there and hold it for him!

Korben is still Logan's favorite person and they make each other laugh all the time. I love it. Whenever Logan starts to get upset about something, I can just call Korben over and the problem is solved! It seriously is cute how sweet the boys are with each other!

And here are his 6 month stats from his last doctor's appointment on 9-28-11:

Height: 27.5 inches (85th %)
Weight: 18 lb. 10 oz. (75th %)
Head Cir: 45cm

6 months old already!

First time eating rice cereal

And first time drinking from a sippy cup!

Major Sweetness

I meant to post about this when it happened a couple of nights ago but just didn't get around to it.

Anyhow, last Wednesday night Josh wasn't feeling well so I ended up putting both kids to bed; which meant Korben was still up when I was putting Logan down. Korben was being really good and was actually being quiet so Logan could fall asleep. He was playing on his MobiGo game and Logan had just fallen asleep when something on the game happened that Korben found funny. He started giggling pretty loudly and I fully expected Logan to wake up... to my surprise though, his eyes were still shut and he didn't flinch at all BUT there was a huge grin on his face from ear to ear! It could have just been a coincidence but Korben laughed 2 or 3 more times at his game and Logan smiled (with his eyes still shut) every single time! It was seriously THE most adorable thing ever! You probably had to be there to appreciate it as much as I do, but that is one of those memories that will stick with me always.
