Happy 1/2 Year Mr. Owen George!

Amazing things - An African American is President. And Mary woke up with O.G. for 2 nights in a row. I forgot how amazing an entire night's sleep is. She even slept on the blow up mattress in his room that we've set up for operation crib. And she did 1/2 of last night. Amazing stuff.

In other events, O.G. is 6 months today. I just can't believe how time is flying by. He tried some cheerios yesterday and seemed to like them. In general he's not super into food except some rice cereal and sweet potatoes. I think I may start the baby LED weaning as it seems easier and a better way to get him to eat food. I hear it's messy but like this pureed crap isn't.

In developmental stuff, he can mostly sit up but weebles wobble and they DO fall down. The poor guy is constantly hitting his head. He can get into the crawling position but doesn't crawl. He does do a mean inch worm and some how manages to get to dog toys. Not cool since he puts EVERYTHING in his mouth. So far, still only the 2bottom teeth but he's teething like crazy so I'm hoping some more break through soon. He also gets seriously pissed when you take something away from him - i.e. a dog toy. And he still hates his car seat but we recently got a new one which I think he'll like much better than the carrier one since he can sit up in it.

So what does O.G. think about being a 1/2 year? (I can't figure out how to rotate these camera videos)

I can't believe how many of the same things they are doing!!!! I was just about to look up six month olds and temper tantrums because Lexi has been getting SOOO mad when we take things away from her!! I am seriously bummed about not making family week. Figures it would be the one week my six friends can get together. I told them they have to do lots of gay family things while we're there:) Maybe next year though!!

Oh and happy six months Owen. You're such a good mommy to actually post on the day. I keep missing hers.

That's funny. Well, I'm glad Lexi is doing that too because I was thinking O.G. just had a bad temper. LOL.

Happy 6 months! I loved foam mats around that age so if they do fall, it's not so hard. :P

I liked the baby led weaning stuff too because I found I had more success. Riley loved chewing on cantaloupe rather than eating a lot of the puree stuff. She was a picky eater.
