6 Months old Already

Calvin is has been a part of this world 6 months and has added so much to our lives. He seems to love to wake up chatting up a storm ready to go in the morning. I am thankful that he is okay in his crib for a few minutes before I can get my eyes to stay open to get him. He is starting to sleep better, but after a few nights of only waking up at 11:00 that streak ended last night. I am praying that this night feedings come to an end soon, as I haven't slept through the night since probably May of last year. Pregnancy has a way of helping you get used to this. I am ready to get some more sleep.

Calvin went to the doctor and seems to be in the 25th percentile in everything. He is 16 lb. 5 oz. right now and getting bigger everyday. He is slowly getting more hair, but it is very light so most people can't tell he has any.

He loves to laugh and started laughing if you laugh and smile at him. I absolutely love it. We has been rolling over everywhere now. But he tends to roll away from the toy he is trying to get to. This has been a little frustrating for him, but he will get the hang of it.
He never stops moving. He loved the table at the doctor's office because they had paper on the table and every time he moved it made a sound. His doctor even commented about how much he moved.

Calvin started to eat Rice cereal like Saturday and gobbled it all up. He loves food and loves spoons. He will try to grab the spoon almost every time we give him a spoonful of cereal, so it makes meal time interesting. We are going to try some sweet potatoes and avocados this week. I can't wait to see what his reaction will be.
Tastey Toes

I was able to snap a picture of the first time he rolled over from his back to his stomach!

Calvin was having trouble sleeping when we first moved him and so this was our naptime solution one day. Aparently washing dishes puts a baby right to sleep.

I can't wait to meet this little man. He must be quite the charm.
