Today I tried something new, green beans. I made a few faces at first, but then I decided that I kind of liked this new green food. I really liked it when I got a hold of the spoon and started to feed myself. Mommy and Daddy thought it was cute that I took the spoon and knew exactly what to do with it. Mommy and Daddy are happy that I am liking my veggies! Below is a little video clip of me tonight. You can see that I found out the spoon feels good on my gums too!

I am 6 months old today! Mommy and Daddy feel like I was just born yesterday. They can't believe how quickly time has gone by. I had a great day today. I went for my 6 month check up today and met my new pediatrician. Mommy loves my new pediatrician's office. The nurse made over me right from the start and the doctor was excellent to me. It's a long story why Mommy switched doctor's, but believe me my new doctor is much better. My 6 month stats are:
Height: 26.25 inches
Weight: 17.2 lbs.
I am in the 75th percentile for height and weight. The doctor said I am well proportioned and am looking good for my age:). When I left the doctor's office, my doctor asked me to sit down and pick out a book. I sat up all by myself and picked out a book about colors. Mommy thought that was neat and it made her like the doctor even more. My nurse today did a good job with my shots. I turned red and cried very little when I was given the shot. By the time Mommy picked me up and we left the room, I was smiling and laughing at the nurse. I was happy all day today, except for a short time in the evening. Mommy and Daddy are proud of how well I did today!

... peek-a-boo. I am starting to imitate how Mommy and Daddy play peek-a-boo. Today I discovered that if I pulled hard enough, I can take off my bib and use it to play peek-a-boo. Mommy and Daddy loved how entertained I was with my bib. I had so much fun covering my face, or at least part of it, and then putting the bib down and smiling at whoever was in front of me. Nana told Mommy that I was doing the same thing earlier today with a blanket. Maybe someone will catch it on video soon.

Whoa! You make me laugh Daddy!
I really like pulling hair these days! It doesn't mattter if the hair is long or short, I have a great grip for either length. Sometimes I reach and pull my own hair, but pulling others' hair is more fun. Mommy's hair is fun to pull because when I let go it bounces back. Tonight Daddy and I were playing and I decided to show him how easy his hair is to pull. I was smiling the whole time I was pulling his hair. When I finally let go, I started to fall backwards and laugh. I am getting good at sitting up though and stopped myself from falling all the way back! Mommy and Daddy will be excited when hair doesn't interest me anymore.

The days are still pretty warm in Tucson which means it's nice to go swimming and cool off. Mommy and Daddy tried out my turtle raft today. I liked that it had a place for me to have some of my toys to play with and it had a little canopy to help keep me in the shade. Mommy and Daddy had fun having me kick in the water. I liked being able to float all around. I love being in the water!
Maybe I can try and pick all of these blocks up at once!
Do you know what letter this is Eeyore?
Mommy, Daddy, and Nana have really been working on having me practice sitting up. I am getting pretty good. I can sit up for a good minute or two before following over, usually on my tummy. I like sitting up to play. This morning, Mommy thought she would see how I liked playing with my foam blocks. She is excited for me to play with them as they have numbers, letters, and pictures on them. The letters include the Spanish alphabet to help me learn Spanish! Mommy thought it was so cute that while I was playing I rolled on my tummy and realized I was face to face with Eeyore. I tried to show Eeyore the blocks and made noises at him, but Eeyore just kept the same face the whole time. I can't wait for the next block party!

Mommy and Daddy love to dress me for every occasion. Today it was time to watch the UA football game on T.V. Mommy decided to surprise everyone by dressing me in my UA polo shirt and overalls. Daddy said I looked adorable in my outfit. A big thanks to my Nina Nina Dia who bought it for me. I am sure I will be wearing it again soon before I grow out of it. Now if only wearing red and blue would help the football team!

This was a big weekend for me and my parents. Mommy and Daddy went to Palm Springs for Daddy's basketball conference and I stayed over at my Nana and Papa's house. Mommy and Daddy took me over to Nana and Papa's on Friday morning. Mommy had a much harder time saying goodbye to me than I did to her. In fact, Mommy cried when she left me. Nana told her everything would be fine and it was. I played at Nana's all day on Friday. Friday night, Aunt Stacie and Uncle Kenny babysat me while Nana and Papa went dancing. I only woke up once in the night on Friday night. Saturday I played for awhile at Nana and Papa's, but in the afternoon I went to my house where my Ninos babysat me while Nana and Papa went to the UA football game. My Ninos had fun playing with me and even gave me a bath, which was of course fun! My Nana picked me up after the game and took me back to her house. I then slept until 7:30 this morning. Nana said I behaved perfectly. Mommy and Daddy are so thankful for all the help they have. Mommy and Daddy said they had fun in Palm Springs. Mommy and Daddy were very excited to come home today and pick me up.

Happy Birthday Grandpa. We celebrated last night with dinner and cake at our house. I had so much fun smiling at everyone who came over. I even put on a performace so that everybody could see how good I am a closing the blinds. I fell asleep before the cake was served, but Mommy and Daddy tell me it tasted good! I hope Grandpa has a great day!

Mommy and Daddy found a new way for me to be a helper. I love to help open and close the blinds in the house. Usually Daddy and I open all the blinds in the morning together. Tonight Mommy captured me helping Daddy close the blinds. It's fun being a little helper!
