Six months

WE LOVE OUR SON!! No really, he's pretty much amazing. He makes us smile and laugh a million times a day. We couldn't be prouder. At his six month check up he was 16 lbs. 11 oz. (38th percentile), 26 1/2 in. (54th percentile), and his head was 17 1/2 inches (71st percentile). Brian was concerned that his weight was below average, especially considering our builds. But I reminded him that Marcus NEVER stops moving. That kid must burn a million calories a day! This is what he is up to this month;
- He is a rolling maniac, and rolls across the room before you even know what's happened.
- He loves rice cereal and squash, and loves drinking out of cups
- He is becoming more and more independent every day and he is not shy about telling you if he doesn't like something.
- He has a hilariously expressive face and is so much fun to watch.

- He waves, but never when we want him to
- We, and others, agree that he says hi, mim (mom), and da (dad)
- He loves the cat and dog and wants to watch them and touch them as much as possible. (thank goodness they are patient about him pulling on their fur)
- He sits up really well, after we have put him up
- He scoots around and turns himself in circles, and daycare considers him "mobile"
- He is trying to crawl and to pull himself up on things  and gets pretty frustrated when he can't do it.
- He thinks his feet are incredibly delicious
- He is good natured and sleeps like a champ

That's all for now, but I will try to do a post before seven months, I promise! I will finish with our favorite family photo. Once again, Fotofly did a great job!
