Our Incredible Six Month Old

I'll probably post about Niagara Falls later today, but I've been wanting to post this video and a couple cute pictures of James for a while now.

James had his six-month appointment on Monday. He's in the 75th percentile for head size, the 60th percentile in height's the shocker...only the 13th percentile in weight! My little guy is so active that he burns all his calories as soon as he gets them! We're going to increase the amount of solid food we give him everyday to see if he'll gain more weight because he only gained a couple of ounces in the last month.

The doctor isn't concerned because he's so healthy and active, so that's good. Speaking of active, James definitely is a crawler now. He still hasn't quite got the all-fours belly off the ground crawl yet, but his army crawl is very efficient. He's quick! :) Here's a video:

He's also gotten pretty good at sitting (when he wants to sit, that is). He'll stay there for a few minutes if he's got something to play with. But he gets bored quickly. Here are a couple cute pictures I got the other night:

It's true that six months is a very fun age. We have fun with James everyday as he experiences new things and learns new tricks. :) I can't believe he's already half a year old!
