Colby is 6 mos old today! UPDATE

My does time fly? Colby has his 6 month check up today!

He weighed in at 15 & 1/2 lbs and is measuring over 25 inches long. He is progressing nicely and is now on the percentile scale in all areas for his age, even though he was almost two months premature (that is a big deal!). If we adjusted the percentile scale to his actual due date, he would be an average size baby (50%) for the most part. The Dr said we can start him on rice cereal, and then work up to veggies and fruit baby food. He will still get most of his nutrition from milk, but it will be fun to start him on "solids" (I think). Watch for fun "food pictures" soon.

He is babbling more, and almost makes a sound that closely resembles "da da." I have been secretly working on that word with him, but it could turn out that he is saying "ma ma" or "ga ga" or who knows? He is still sleeping like a champ at night, so we are still walking on water since this is still somewhat new to us (about 10 nights straight so far!).
'til next time-
