To celebrate his 6 months birthday, Kyle decided to introduce a few new things to his life. While at his check-up yesterday, he figured "why not wow the doc with my amazing ability to sit unsupported". Imagine Mommy's surprise! We have been working on it, but seriously, this was the first true time that he sat for so long! Here he is waiting for his shots with his measuring cup and of course, chicken in the background.
Kyle has also begun the trek into the world of solid foods. So far he loves his rice cereal, sweet potatoes and avocado. Right now, he has 4 feedings, with solids at 2 of them. The doctor wants us to increase that to 3 of the 4 feedings and continually introduce more foods. Last night we added a second cereal meal, but with a treat of mashed bananas included. Needless to say, he loved it! Of course, what baby doesn't love bananas. I have bought some carrots and peas to cook up next. I just have to see how I go about making those for him.
Here are some basic stats on our little one... and yes we are still counting! Kyle is 21 lbs 9 oz, 27.5 inches. We have gone through over 30 cans of formula, changed over 1250 diapers, and sleeps and average of 14 hrs every day! Finally, and most importantly, Mr. Bergman has also gotten his first tooth and is diligently working on number 2! For the most part, he has been a champ through the whole teething thing. Other than the constant drool (that is driving Daddy C-R-A-Z-Y!), he is in pretty good spirits. Here's the best picture I have so far of the tooth. And of course, the chicken is with him again. Did I mention that he likes his chicken?
