I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Years! We had an awesome time playing Santa- Brogan even "helped" me bake cookies for Santa. He was actually really interested in his presents. My parents gave him his first car :) and he LOVES to ride in it. The minute we put him in it, he grabbed the steering wheel and didn't let go. Tadd's parents gave Brogan an exersaucer that keeps him entertained while I get ready in the mornings. How I went six months without one of these is amazing to me. Brogan received lots and lots of other toys from family members and we are so thankful! Since we play practically all day long (the boy does not like to sleep!) the new toys keep ME from going crazy haha! Some of his other favorite toys are his new toothbrush and some spoons...anything he can chew on!
Brogan is such a fun baby! He has mastered rolling over both ways now and loves to sit up by himself. He even sleeps in his OWN ROOM now!! Yep, on January 1st, my New Years resolution was to move my baby from the pack n play right beside our bed to his own crib. He still gets up 3 times to eat (err...cuddle with mommy) but it's a start. My next job is to let him start crying longer and longer until he realizes that he doesn't need me to go back to sleep. It's a bad habit that I've got to break.
We took Brogan to the doctor today for his six month check up and Dr. Bailey said everything looked great! Brogan weighs 17.7lbs and was 26 3/4 in. long- which is the 50th percentile for both. His head circumference is off the charts...but that isn't surprising! :) Dr. Bailey gave us the go-ahead to start other solids besides cereal and to introduce a sippy cup with water or breastmilk in it. I can't wait to give Brogan some peas! I want him to love vegetables like I do and hope he's not a veggie-hater like his daddy!! Also, he has SIX teeth now- 2 on the bottom and four on the top. I know that they have to hurt! With his teeth coming in at this rate, Brogan will be eating a T-bone by the time he's 9 months!
