Eli is six months old! Wow this half a year has already flown by. He weighs 18. 3 lbs and is 28 1/2 inches long. He is staying on the same growth curve and same percentile: 50th weight, 75th-90th height, and 50% head circumference. This month he had his first ear infection.. sadness. He is holding his own bottle (during the day when mom keeps him), eating stage 2 baby food, up on all fours, sitting without any support, and rocking on all fours. He has started babbling more consonant sounds and likes to pop his lips and babble "ba ba ba". His bottom two teeth are completely through. He did bite me several times while he was working on getting those little white nubs to appear. I actually had two cuts on each side. Thankfully he has not tried to bite anymore or there was going to be an early weaning. Up until this week he would get on all fours, rock back and forth and then lunge across the floor... but he has finally figured it out and is moving his arms and legs in sync now. Mom has chased him all over the living room the past two days.
There were five of us teachers at school that were all pregnant at the same time. Here are few pics of the babies that were born.. Eli was the only boy of the group.
