Ryan at 6 months

What a big boy! Ryan weighed 22 pounds at his last appointment (actually nearly 23 pounds but he had a cloth diaper on so we're guessing he didn't weigh quite that much). Anyways I wanted to remember all the things he's doing at 6 months that he wasn't doing 6 months ago!

He sits up, and would like to crawl, he can get his butt in the air or lift his torso but not both at the same time! LOL! Whenever he wants to go somewhere he leans for it and kicks his feet as fast as he can! Too cute! He would love to be able to go with the big brothers! He also will reach for Todd and I if he wants us and will reach for people who reach for him...although he's becoming hesitant if he's with Todd or I or if he doesn't know the person!

Ryan can hold his own bottle if it isn't if it isn't too heavy and he's on an incline then he feeds himself. He also has figured out how to get his pacifier into his mouth but doesn't usually want it for more than chewing on the side of's SO funny to watch! Ryan has 2 teeth already (seems very early to me), loves his toes and says Mama (first word) and Dada (but not in context of course).

Ryan has lots of 'nervous tics' he pulls his ears and rubs his eyes if he's tired, scratches his head while he's eating and scratches his belly if it's exposed! (Scratching his belly is probably the funniest).

Ryan eats 2-3 meals a day, he eats oatmeal on the mornings that Todd is home with him, and eats any of the following for his other two meals: carrots, sweet potatoes, green beans, broccoli, squash, peas, peaches, applesauce, bananas, or mashed potatoes.

He's getting big so fast! But man its been fun!
