Gavin is 6 months old!!!

Gavin is having a pretty busy week! He went to the doctor on Wednesday for another round of shots. He cried for a minute or two, but he was easily consoled. Besides some mild fussiness, he was fine the rest of the day.
He is in the 75th percentile for head circumference (17 10/16") and height (27") and in the 60th percentile for weight (17-13 1/2 oz). He can roll over both ways, he can sit on his own, he can babble your ear off, and he's even trying to pull up into standing! I think he may start to crawl soon. He's starting to lunge forward from sitting. Right now, he gets a face full of floor, but soon he'll get the hang of it. He's doing lots of other things, but it's just too much to list. I think he's starting to smile for the camera...

Thursday was his official 6 month birthday. To celebrate, Gary bought him a card and three presents. He wrapped the presents really loose so Gavin could open them himself. As expected, Gavin had more fun with the wrapping paper than with the actual toys. He got some onsies, a milk and cookies coin drop thingy, and a sippy cup with his name on it!

He's doing really well without his sleep suit. The first night was rough, and he cried...a lot. The second night was much better, and he seemed to actually like sleeping on his stomach. I did go to get him up the second morning and found that he was sleeping in a puddle of urine, spit up and had a poopy diaper!!! Poor baby!! I guess sleeping on his stomach caused him to spit up and his diaper to leak. The solid food probably caused the poopy diaper. I bought a bigger size diaper and the third night was great! I did wake up three times to make sure he wasn't sleeping in peepee again. He wasn't. He looks so stinkin' cute in his pajamas!
