6 Months

So I am about a month late... but since I've been out the little Roo turned 6 months old! Time flies when you are having fun!

You've probably already seen these on Facebook, but I have to share his 6 month sneak-peek pics from Aimee Fuller Photography. They. Are. Amazing.

I am quite convinced that I have the cutest child in the history of 6 month old babies. 

So a few things about my little 6 month old:

- Just when I am convinced that he is teething, and there is no way possible that he could possibly chew or drool anymore... he does. The water faucet that has replaced his mouth is constantly turned on, and at some point I am sure we will get teeth... or drown...

- Instead of crawling, Roo has taken to a kind of hop like that is reminiscent of a frog. He wriggles his legs up under him, then stretches his arms out with a bit of a leap to it. One day he will be an expert at leap frog. For now, we are just waiting for him to realize that crawling is actually easier than what he is doing.

- We are signing to him, but I don't know if it's enough that he realizes what we are trying to do. We sign, "I Love You", "Mommy", "Daddy", "Eat", "More", "All Done", and "Sleepy". I'm pretty sure he understands zero of them yet, but who knows. Maybe one day he will surprise us.

- We use the regular bathtub now. He loves to splash around for as long as I let him. We can't wait to take him swimming in a baby pool. We may also do swim lessons if they offer them a the rec center.

- The Roo is a little piggy. He eats like a champ. He loves oatmeal, apples, carrots, green beans, green peas, bananas, sweet potatoes, squash and zucchini. 

We had our first baby birthday parties last weekend. We actually had 2 one-year old birthday parties! Two of his little friends turn one in April and we celebrated with them on Saturday.  I will post pics from then soon!
