Happy Half Birthday, Xavier

How I found him on his half birthday! It's his favorite way to sleep- at least its not a complete face plant that I have seen him do many times.
 


So Xavier is now six months old and it was a great day to celebrate his half birthday!


He is growing and learning things everyday and it is wonderful and fun to watch.

Look Mom! I am so big! (6 Months- Jan. 11)

It's Cool, I have the Panda Power!



At his checkup he weighed 7.552 kgs and is 68 cm long with a head circumference of 43 cm.  He also had his vaccinations and took them like a big boy again. A few tears but settled down for a nap shortly after.
       




 This is shortly after we left the appointment. He needed his monkeys and a hand to hold.




He has begun to like more of his toys and is trying to chew on everything. We have learned that you cannot help him in getting something in his mouth or whatnot as this will make him more mad than he might be at the moment.

It's Rough being a cute kid!

Real Rough!


He is also starting to slither everywhere and he can go backwards at a great speed. He isn't crawling but he sure can go all over and quickly to boot. Recently this past week he is getting better at looking like he is crawling and can keep his legs under him longer but still goes backwards. :-)




Xavier in the last few days has now started to look like he wants to stand up or walk on all fours. He could almost get to a sitting position as well if he figured out how.



No teeth to speak of yet but he sure is working on them. I have determined at this point that he is going to get them in all at once. This hard teeth growing is making for some rough nights, so we are back to not sleeping through the night but this will change soon I hope - I miss sleep.
