Yestereday Grant decided to start rolling from back to tummy-in his sleep-so there was no one watching this milestone. He had a taste of his first fruit-applesauce. You should have seen the look of disgust on his face!!! But he never turns down a bite for more.
Call me crazy, but I made my own baby food the other night. Green beans, sweet peas and applesauce. The applesauce was super easy cuz I just bought a jar of Mott''s Organic unsweetened and sucked it up with a turkey baster and into the ice cube trays. Yup, I''m a genius. The veggies were a little more work though. Wether or not I continue this labor of love remains to be seen.
Our six month old has his check-up Tuesday at 4:00; he''s fitting into some 12-month clothes already. He has two teeth, sits up and twists and turns trying to reach for things. He grabbed and held his bottle for the first time on Father''s Day, but Dad was asleep. He seems to tolerate green beans, and likes peas and squash. Will update with length and weight after he visits the Dr.
Grant''s doing well. Has a cold right now, but otherwise he''s a happy healthy boy! He''s started holding his hands together on the 31st. He''s also found his feet...which are very nimble. He''s very dexterous when it comes to his kick and play bouncer!
He''s discovered his hands-the right one tastes WAY better than the left. It was his first week in daycare and Mom did okay-no tears or tantrums. We think we''ve found him a happy place to stay while we''re away! While there, he got his first love note-way to go, Grant!
Grant had his two month check-up on the 19th-weighing in at 15.03 pounds, 24.25 inches long, and a head circumference of 41.5 cm. He now sleeps all by his lonesome in his big boy crib all through the night. He''s awesome!
Grant was the guest of honor at his first party on Saturday. There was lots of food, including appetizers, chili and cake. He got some baby booty including clothes, toys, baby necessities and a cool homemade camo quilt!
