6 months old

We actually had his 6 month check-up on the 19th, but I am going to post this for when he really turned 6 months!
I cannot put into words how much this lilttle boy has changed our lives! He is so happy, and cuddly! He is such a joy to have.
The stats:
(I don't have them with me, but I will fill them in!)
He is not quite sitting up yet, he kinda folds in half! He is rolling in both directions, has recently started saying dada and loves to blow raspberries. He is most content when he is being held and still loves to nap with mommy! We have been working for a while on baby food and rice cereal and have had some pooping issues, but the doc wasn't too concerned! We are going to try oatmeal instead of the rice and see if that helps and go ahead with the baby foods! We shall see!!
The doctor also gave us a trial of a nasal spray, Flonase, to help open up his airway in hopes that it will quite his breathing. If it does, we will add that to the Prevacid and daily vitamin with flouride that he takes because he is nursing. (We feel like we are giving him so many meds...but compared to the kids that I take care of at Riley, this is nothing!!!) All in all...we have a perfect little boy, but again, we didn't need the doc to tell us that!!!
