1/2 a year....
or 182.5 days, 6 months, since Forrest has changed our lives with his presence. His tiny, (and now ever growing,) amazing, smiley, drooly, happy presence.
It has been such a crazy time! He is such an awesome baby. Everyone he meets is charmed by his happy little personality.
His life these days is filled with FOOD! Yep, life is now forever changed for Forrest. Food has entered it, and is never to leave it again. We started introducing solids about 2 weeks ago with some rice cereal and pureed summer squash, and soon after introduced pears, apples, beets, beans, corn, bananas and he loves it ALL!
He is becoming quite the hulk with his appetite. He likes them mixed, alone, with cereal, without...all of it. Milk is still of course the major part of his diet, but food has very quickly taken a close second, and corn cobs....he attacks them like a little piranha. It's pretty hilarious.
Forrest is also standing like a champ. I find him actually balancing on his own without support for several seconds at a time, testing his skills. He is also the champion sitter already. No crawling, thank goodness! But he is getting better at the rolling skills. I have a feeling we're gonna have an early mover and shaker on our hands....ughhhh....tons of baby proofing to do in this household...
He's basically an easy going baby. He does get bored and antsy, and absolutely loves the outdoors.
His favorites are his bathtub which we have been known to happen in the middle of the day on our front porch to appease our little offspring during a fussy time, and the beach down by the river. He loves to feel the sand in his toes and hands, and when mama looks away for a split second, in his mouth....yep, eating dirt already....
