6 month update

I thought I'd just update on my little man Michael.
At his 6 month appointment he weighed 12 lbs 11 oz and is 24 inches long. Overall health is GREAT. Strong upper body, hips a little weak but with his AA the pedi says his hips will strengthen as time goes on and he wants to use his legs more. We are starting solids once a day. Michael is always on the move..he is rolling back to front a lot (seems to do this when he's with my sister alot...) wiggling on his back and putting butt in air as those he is a crab trying to move around. He has rolled back to front a few times. Grabs everything and it goes right to mouth. Im told he is the most content and happy baby so many have met. He is a good boy. Sleeps about 8-8 1/2 hrs a night...every night. Getting ready to start daycare on the 15th - which is at my work. I can't get over how fast he is growing.

Thanks everyone. He is doing so well..it's so heart warming. Today was his first day at daycare at my work..all is well.

Mada our dog is soooo good with him and it's funny at times Michael will lay on his blanket and watch Hershey eat a bone or just stare at him when he goes by wagging his tail. Hershey has to be on Michael's blanket at times too..I'm always battling the black hair but can't obsess over it.
