Here is Hudson at 6 months old! I tried to get the stuffed animal to stay next to him, but he wouldn't have it. He just wanted to play with it. Oh well!
I think I say this every month, but I love his smile!
We are hoping to see a tooth pop through any day now! This is how he spends most of his days...with a finger feeling around in his mouth.
We are doing really well on the solid food. He has tried cereal, sweet potatoes, squash, carrots, applesauce, peaches, and green beans.
I am still just feeding him solid foods once a day. We go to the pediatrician on Wednesday for his 6 month checkup. We may start doing it more than once a day after this visit. His favorite food by far is applesauce. He can eat a whole container of applesauce in about two seconds! He really likes carrots too. He is not too fond of squash, but he will eat it. The worst has been green beans. He would not even let any go down. He just shook his head no and gagged until it came out. I think we may put that one aside and try it later. I'm going to be in big trouble though if he doesn't like green beans! That is a staple in our house and just about the only veggie that I will eat! Oh and we did cereal to start with, but I tried to give him cereal and a fruit or veggie a few weeks ago, and he would have nothing to do with cereal anymore. He just spits it right back out. I probably wouldn't eat it either...it's pretty gross.
Hudson is still grabbing things like crazy. Anything he can get his hands on is good with him, but preferably the remote control for the TV and my cell phone. We have bought him all these toys for him to play with, but those are unfortunately his favorites. I did find him a toy cell phone and he likes that pretty well!
He still loves his jumperoo too. He is starting to outgrow his play mat, which makes me sad, but at least he loves the jumperoo. It has a weight limit of 25 pounds, and I'm sure we'll be testing that soon!
Hudson is a pro at sitting up by himself now. He has been doing this for a couple of weeks now without plopping back down. He is much happier being able to sit up. He can't pull himself up to a sitting position yet, but he will stay there if you put him that way. He is also really trying to crawl. He kind of swims when you put him on his stomach and he can get his arms and head up really high, but the back end is the tough part! It is funny to watch him try though. He really wants to do it, but he's just not ready yet. He started this little army crawl this past weekend so he can scoot a little bit. Our house is not ready for him to be on the move yet so hopefully he will wait on that a little longer!
