Benjamin turned 6 months old on July 5th! Believe it or not, this posts lateness is intentional. Benjamin finally had his 6 month doctor's appointment today! He is still a healthy growing boy, but his growth has slowed a bit, which I hear is normal for this age range. He measured in at 26 3/4 inches and 18lbs 4.5oz. These measurements are both about 50th percentile. His head on the other hand, or noggin as DH calls it, is 88th percentile. Yep. Giant head. I would be worried if I did not know that it is very genetic. His grandpa and great grandpa both had giant noggins. Seriously, if my dad could get me a picture of him or his father to post on here, that would be great.
I don't have a big list of developments to give you because I have been giving them all as they come, trying to get them recorded somewhere accurately before I forgot. But, the new thing I can mention is I am pretty sure he is actually teething now! Exciting and scary! Still not mobile, but getting so close. He still has not rolled from back to front, and does not seem to have any interest in doing so. He does go from sitting to a position on all fours. He does reach for things, sort of lunging to try and reach them. He has scooted about 2 inches on his belly but not father. He has turned in circles.
Here are some 6 month pics taken by my little sister on our front porch. I did get a couple shots of him holding the 6 month sign, but they are on DHs phone and hard to get on here (we were without a camera for a couple of weeks, but we have one again now, so no worries :)
