Ian - Six Months Old
I can't believe that my baby is already six months old. Time has gone so fast! He is hitting physical milestones way before Eli did, I think he just wants to be in the middle of things. When Eli and Joe are playing you can see Ian thinking "How can I get over there?" and it is almost like he rocks to try and get closer to them. He is eating table food, he refuses to eat baby food, but loves to chow down on what he can that we are having to eat. He "crawls" (see video below) to get things he wants and he is getting all over the place when he is in his walker. His favorite's include bath time, being outside and watching his big brothers. Some nights he only wakes once, other nights he is up several times. I think a lot of the variance is due to teething. He has gotten his bottom two teeth in and loves to chew on everything. He is such a momma's boy! He will be playing happily in the other room, but once he sees me he starts whining and whimpering...melts my heart really! I love my precious boy and have had a wonderful first six months with him.
As far as his six month well baby check, he weighed 17 pounds and 4 ounces and was 26 inches long. About the 50th % for both. He is doing everything that he should be and then some. Our physician did notice that his left eye seems to be a little weak. Nothing that he is really worried about, just something to watch. However, now it is bothering my like crazy...I am constantly staring into his eyes to check it's position...hopefully it is nothing.
