Hi Everybody! Its RJ!!! Last time I wrote I was not even five months old and now I'm seven big ones. Can you believe it?!?! I'm growing up way too fast (Mommy says I need to slow down but I can't help it). So what's new with me you ask? Here goes nothing...
How big am I? I am SO big (and my Mommy, Aunties, and Grandmas say SUPER handsome too). At my six month appointment I was almost 18 pounds and 24.5 inches long but that was over a month ago so I bet I'm almost 20 pounds now. We won't have an official stat update until I'm nine months but I'm growing out of my Bumbo Seat and Infant Car Seat so there's proof of what's up.
I'm eating! I have rice cereal every morning and for dinner I enjoy some veggies. I use the word enjoy lightly folks. I've tried sweet peas (terrible), green beans (less terrible but still not good), carrots (good), sweet potatoes (better), and squash (BEST!). Next week I'm going to start on the fruits and I have a really good feeling about them. Next month, I'll start eating some table food and I'm ready because...I HAVE A TOOTH! It was discovered yesterday by my Daddy while we were grocery shopping. AND tonight we found another one that is about to come in too! I've been such a good sport and not fussy at all eventhough TEETHING BITES-literally :)
I'm a really busy guy too! I can sit up all by myself and am still loving my jumperoo because I prefer to be standing. I'm awesome at tummy time now and am starting to scoot. I'll be on the move soon- watch out world! My favorite thing ever is MUSIC. I like to dance with my Mom, Dad, and Puppy...A LOT. Every Monday, I go to Bubbles Academy to music class with my Mom and we have the BEST time (she says it the best part of her week). Today we finished a session and i heard Mom tell Dad all she wants for her birthday next week is another Bubbles class (hint hint). I'm also still all about my favorite shows- Little Einsteins, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, and Special Agent Oso. Those Disney people think of EVERYTHING!
I've also become quite the social butterfly. Since I last wrote, I've had playdates with Miabella, Ava, Landon, and Cameron. I also love hosting people at my place for BBQs and such. I'm also always exploring the city in my stroller or Bjorn with my d-o-g now that weather is warm and I'm so happy summer is here...finally. When I'm not having playdates or exploring The Chi, I'm hanging out with my Grandparents, Aunties, Uncle Ev and Mom and Dad's friends.
So there you have it :) My Mommy promises that she will help me post more frequently. Our little family is so happy together and we're having so much fun!!!
