He loves pulling the corner of this lay down toy onto his head!
Playing with Benji McArton
Brendan at 6 months:
*is eating like a champ...butternut sqaush, oatmeal, bananas, summer squash, sweet potatoes, applesauce (we're starting green beans tomorrow!). He also likes to grab whatever we are trying to eat and bring it to his mouth.
*is working on using a sippy cup, because he loves to grab cups we are drinking from and bringing them to his mouth to drink from :)
*wears 6-9 mth, 9mth and some *gasp* 12 mth clothing
*wears size 1 shoes and 18-36 mth socks (which I think is crazy, but the 6-18 mths didn't fit)
*is chatting up a storm...using more sounds. He still loves to watch people talk and moves his mouth to mimic talking or singing. He's even chatted so much that his voice becomes hoarse.
*is an awesome sleeper...sometimes he sleeps the whole night through, but usually he wakes up around 4 to eat a little something and then goes right back to sleep.
*has started to roll over more and more...he still works on it really hard and HATES to be on the ground or his belly for any amount of time, but we're working on it.
*still loves to play in his exersaucer and jumping horse.
*loves, loves, loves his plastic keys and is awesome at passing them from hand to hand.
*we sometimes think he says "Hi" after we say it to him...
*giggles up a storm when Mr. Pibb licks him or we tickle him (but you have to catch him at the right time for a perfect giggle)
*simply has a blast when he takes his bath; he LOVES bathes
*reaches his arms out to us when he wants to be picked up (this is so my favorite right now!)
*is getting better and better at sitting up on his own to play with toys.
*Is easily the number 1 person in his daddy and mommy's eyes!!!
