6 Months Old!

Lukas is now 6 months old! I just can't believe how time is flying.

Lukas is:
- 16 lbs .5 oz
- 28.5 inches
- eating cereal and oatmeal twice a day (he loves his cereal!)
- eating fruits and veggies (we just started with sweet potatoes and he wasn't very impressed)
- rolling around on the floor to get to what he wants
- sitting up (we say thanks to Maddie because he figured out sitting at her birthday party)
- grabbing everything he can reach (this is especially dangerous if you wear glasses because he is lightening fast and loves those most)
- still giving smiles to anyone and everyone
- laughing (mostly at night after his bath)
- standing when supported by Mommy, Daddy, or anyone else who happens along
- loving Mommy and Daddy everyday!

Lukas and his favorite block...

Lukas loves to read, however he usually wants to do it all himself so he ends up closing the book and then chewing on it.

We went to a pumpkin patch on Sunday afternoon, and he was super cute.

Odds and Ends

A few weeks ago we bought Lukas a new playmat. He likes the fact that it is like a puzzle because I'll find him pulling at the different pieces to it and chewing on them.

In the above picture you can see that he is surrounded by toys, however, after he was left to play for a while I found him like this:

Who needs toys when you have blinds, right? He certainly has fun with them. He plays with them every time he gets close enough.

Lukas has also figured out exactly how to sit. This time I'm not talking about Mommy balancing and hoping he holds the pose long enough for a picture. Oh no, this is honest to goodness sitting. He decided, while at a friends birthday party this past Saturday (the 13th), that he knew how to sit. I put him down and he just sat. Of course he also gave me a look like, "what Mom? I knew how to do this all along I just didn't want to." He's getting so big!! I can't believe he'll be 6 months old this Friday!

Lukas' First (and Second) Tooth!

Lukas has been working on his bottom center teeth for the past couple of months, and they have finally broken through! The right bottom center tooth broke through Saturday afternoon. That one is his official first tooth, however it was followed very closely by the left bottom center one early this morning (he woke up with it). I haven't been able to get any pictures of these wonderful developments because when his mouth is open his tongue is covering up his teeth.

In other news, Lukas loves his new highchair. He looks forward to eating and playing in it every night about 6:30 pm. He eats oatmeal and rice cereal (alternating every other night) and is getting very good at eating in bites.

He has the most amazing blue eyes....

He also loves to play in his excersaucer. He chews, hits, inspects, and smiles at everything on it.
