I love all of the little milestones and just wish I could hold on to him as a baby just a little bit longer. Yes, I know he's only six months, but he'll be starting kindergarten soon! Haha...kidding. He is sitting up pretty good most of the time. I learned just yesterday that if I have one of his videos playing, he will sit on his own for almost the entire thing. How sad is that!?! We're getting there slowly, but surely. He rolls from his belly to his back, but still hasn't managed from his back to belly on his own. And boy does my little man love his food! I can't shovel the food in his mouth fast enough without him making grunting noises at me. Even if it's just cereal! He would probably eat the whole box if I let him!
We just did 'Mommy & Baby Yoga' and I think my butterball has a few extra pounds of stuffing. Talk about a workout. Gee whiz! It's funny to watch him though while I'm doing it. He loves being in the air and hanging out with me (for now) so he actually loves it. Plus, I have to make silly cow and cat noises which he finds funny. He still thinks his fake cough is just the most hysterical thing in the world. It seriously cracks me up. Especially when he's trying not to laugh and cough at the same time. Such a ham!
(This is him not yawning, but getting into a fake cough marathon!)
My poor baby isn't feeling well these past couple of days and I think we are at the beginning stages of teething. Oh, yes! I am just so excited. I am glad, however, that his teething and colic were not at the same time and that we managed to get a small break. That would have been rough! But the poor baby had a slight fever and just sounds awful. Runny nose, coughing, etc. I just hate it for him. Right when I stop breastfeeding and he gets sick. Coincidence? UG! I didn't realize all of the different symptoms of teething. This will be fun. He's doing pretty good with it so far. I have teething tablets on standby and Tylenol ready to give! He sounds like a little piglet trying to breathe, so I still wonder if he has a slight cold as well. We have our 6 month checkup on Tuesday (which I dread! I think they hurt me worse than him!) so we'll see then. Until then, I'm giving extra doses of cuddles!
It still amazes me how much I love him....so much it hurts. He is the best thing that has ever happened to me. I feel like I need to thank him. I am so blessed to have him! He's beyond amazing. (Okay, I'm done with the sap now!)
