6 months old.

Colt had his 6 month check up today. He is doing great and the doctor was pleased with his progress. At 6 months old he is rolling over (on occasion), scooting everywhere on his back and stomach, sitting up on his own and playing with all his new Christmas presents, rocking back and forth on his hands and knees (he just started doing this yesterday) eating lots of "real" food, sleeping 12-13 hours at night and filling our lives with so much JOY!!!! Still no teeth yet but he loves to bite down on things with his gums. He weighed 19.5 lbs (80 percentile) and was 29 inches long (100++ percentile) and he is finally starting to grow into his head a little bit he went down from the 95th% to the 80th% from his four month checkup. Overall he is just a happy little guy who is really starting to develop a sweet personality. I also think he has a lot of his daddy's toughness in him, when he got his shots today he did not cry once and he actually gave the nurse a huge grin in between the 3rd and 4th shot! The nurse thought that was pretty funny :)

Care he has the cutest dang pictures, how are you ever going to decide which ones to frame?? I thought Crew was a great smiler at that age, but Colt has got him beat.
Colt is getting big, give him a big hug from us.
We are heading off for a haircut for Crew, say a prayer, because it will be a disaster!!

Hi guys! Colt is so dang cute! I just love his smile, he seems like such a happy baby. I pray for a child that sleeps 12-13 hours a night :) Hope all is well with you guys, miss you lots!
