Gone are the days of a stationary baby in our home. When I set you down on the floor you do not stay in that spot for long. Full fledged crawling will begin any day now I'm sure. It drives your daddy crazy that you are not sitting up on your own, but mommy knows that you have no desire to sit in one place for any amount of time. You get that trait straight from your daddy so he should understand!

You've switched to six months clothes since the temperatures have dropped, but I haven't put away some of your three month stuff in hopes that we may need it again for a heat wave (wishful thinking, I know). Don't get me wrong, I love the cooler weather and all, but I'm not quite ready for the coming months when we're stuck inside.
You are nursing 5-7 times a day with one serving of fruit around lunch time and one serving of veggies during dinner. You love almost everything with the exception of green beans and peas. Those you tend to gag on. We'll keep working on it! You also love Gerber puffs and have some almost every day. Self feeding is a struggle still, but you want to do it on your own so badly. At this point there's not a ton of things I'm comfortable giving you without teeth, so the puffs are perfect since they dissolve quickly. We tried a sippy cup too, but you mostly used it as a teething toy.
Some days you get three 45 minute cat naps and other days you only get one long nap. You are finally doing 9 hour stretches at night, but it took a few sleepless nights and lots of tears on both our parts to get there. Typically you go down around 7:30 and are up for the day at 7:30 with one feeding around 4:30. You've been a little out of whack again lately, but that is primarily due to a new tooth coming through.
I spotted the culprit this morning in fact. Right before we are heading out of town for Lindsey's wedding you decided it was finally time to cut a tooth. This may be a very long weekend indeed.
