6 Months!

6 months. Half a year. OH MY GOODNESS!!

The little monkey has just taken off this month. He is getting so big, and I can't get enough of his little thigh rolls, his pinchable cheeks or that adorable belly! I've got it bad for this boy! He's getting pretty steady sitting, but he still topples over after just a little bit. He thinks this is so funny though, and he'll face plant into the floor or bed and then turn his head and look up and smile. Ha! His legs are so incredibly strong. He wants to stand any chance he gets. He loves to talk and blow raspberries. He also gives the sweetest, slobberiest open-mouth kisses followed by huge bear hugs! And anything and everything he gets his hands on goes straight to his mouth.

A few new accomplishments for the month:
-Sitting pretty well
-Eating rice cereal (and loving it!)
-Rolling from back to belly
-Blowing raspberries (which is especially funny when eating his cereal, apparently!)
-Starting to reach out for people, and if you put a toy or bottle in front of him, he reaches out immediately!
-Usually looks when you call his name
-Learning to hold his own bottle

Hampton is really such a good baby. He seems just so content with life. Sure, he lets you know when he's hungry or tired, but other than that, we hardly ever hear him getting very fussy.
He has his 6 month check-up tomorrow, so I'll update with stats when we get home. For now, I'm going to go with the less technical measurement of "chunky monkey"!! :)
Hampton did really well at the doctor this morning. He loves Dr. H! We could hear her talking to someone when she left the room, and she said, "That Hampton is such a little flirt! What a cutie!" How sweet. :) He had to get 3 shots today, and the nurse was so quick that he didn't even realize she was doing it until it was almost over. But then he cried some crocodile tears for a few seconds, got some lovin' from his daddy and his WubANub, and he was good to go. And then he slept...
