Mike's Idle Ramblings

Daniel is 6 months today!

It's hard to believe that our little guy is already 6 months old! He's changed so much in the past 6 months (and in the past year for that matter...hehehe...).

He's been doing remarkably well recently, aside from having a persistent cold that he's dealt with as best he can. Since his birth, he's been in the hospital twice (including his birth, I should say!), had a urinary tract infection caused by Group B Strep (that I passed on to him during delivery...eep!), had several tests on his kidneys and urinary tract and all of that good stuff. Luckily he's been a good sport and hardly complained!

In other non-medical things, in his 6 months he's taken two airplane trips (one to Montana, one to Arizona), visited a total of 5 states (Nevada, California, Utah, Montana and Arizona), attended a couple of football games, and taken a few short car trips. He's becoming quite the traveler!

Daniel has been going to daycare at Mike's work since he was about 6 weeks old. He loves to interact with all of the kids there and the ladies there love him too! They say how he loves to cuddle and hardly fusses at all (we wonder if they have the right baby??? :) ). At daycare these days he still loves to be in his swing, but also has ventured out into sitting in the Bumbo seat and playing in the jumper. He notices alot of the toys, and loves to look at himself in the big mirror! Just recently he started being able to sit up on his own (although he can't sit himself up, and he does flop over from time to time, so we have to watch him!)! At Christmas time, he was still practicing trying to roll over, but since he doesn't really care to be on his tummy, he has little motivation to do that. He also loves to make noises with his mouth (raspberries!) and is very vocal. At home his favorite toys are the exersaucer (he works each of the toys like a pro...and knows how to make the music come on!), his new play tunnel, the ring stand with the donuts and some play trucks. He also loves his "keyboard" (a V-smile Baby that hooks up to the TV...in stand-alone mode the keyboard part has big buttons and makes noises on it's own.). Anything with a sound makes him laugh!

And last, but certainly not least, he's been a champion sleeper, still getting up maybe once a night (around 5am) to be breastfed. He goes to bed around 8pm, and sleeps pretty soundly (when he isn't coughing...that would wake anyone up!). He has been great at eating his solid foods too! He loves fruits, especially, and has already ventured into eating pears, apples, prunes, bananas, and mixed berries. Peas, sweet potatos and carrots are OK, but he much prefers the fruits. He's also started trying to feed himself little cereal puffs too.

Definitely growing up fast! Happy half-birthday little man!!!
