|Your first Thanksgiving |
(and both your parents were sick.)
More evidence of your growth: we had to adjust the convertible car seat up a size on the shoulder straps for the first time since your birth. You're starting to be a little too tall for the infant padding in the seat, too, but I'm not ready to take that out yet. At your six month doctor visit, you weighed 15 pounds, 1 ounce, and were 25 inches tall—look at you grow! You're now solidly in nine and twelve month clothes, due to your length. We're stocking up on baby leggings so we can stop buying pants for a while—you just grow out of them too darn fast!
|You fall asleep while petting your|
stuffed animals most nights.
|Eddie is so patient with you.|
|You nearly chewed a piece off of |
this take-out box—I was impressed!
|First taste of avocado!|
|You'd rather suck Papa's |
thumb than your own.
Another delightful development is that you can locomote! I would not say you're crawling, exactly...rather, you are able to push yourself backwards. It's quite fun to watch: I put you on the floor on your back, and you flip over, push up onto your hands, and begin pushing with your hands. I'm not sure you're intending to go backwards, but that is the result. More than once, you've pushed yourself halfway under the coffee table before I can look down; you're quick! You also learned that you can shake your head back and forth (like you're saying "No."). I think the world must look strange to you when you do that!

No matter what, you're always delightful to me, my sweet Daniel. I love you more than you can ever know.
