Oups, I Did It Again...

I don't even have to tell you what I did wrong because I know you are all waiting to see the latest picture of the little man ;o) LOL! Here he is -

Photobucket

Can you believe he is SIX MONTHS old???? Again, where does the time go? No, really...where did it go?

Junior has come such a long way, even since last month. His bottom teeth are showing up really well :o) We tried desperately to get him to smile and show them off but that wasn't happening. He is sporting his dimples though.

We've seen so many changes in Junior lately. He can sit by himself without assistance. Of course he still has a few falls with a good thunk to the head but what are a few bumps and lumps? LOL! He is also up on all fours and rocking back and forth, getting ready to crawl. {shudder} His legs are SO strong! I wouldn't be surprised if walking wasn't far behind crawling. Junior was supposed to go for his shots last Wednesday but his appointment got cancelled. He's scheduled to go today so we'll get him weighed in. DH thinks he's running around 18 pounds based on our scales here at home.

We also found a babysitter for Junior! This gives me two days a week where I can schedule other things, like doctor's appointments, and I know he's being well looked after (DH is back to work). The woman who is looking after him has a five year old boy and a seven month old girl (R). Her girl is EXACTLY one month older than Junior. They get along like a house on fire and have quite the conversations. When I pick him up at the end of the day, he chats to me on the way home. I'm not sure what he's saying but it sounds like he does enjoy his play dates. From what I'm told, he likes showing off for R ;o)

I know I keep apologizing for being away from my Blog but I feel quite bad for not keeping in touch :o( It's not that I don't want to. Unfortunately my little hiccup has turned into something a bit more but I will update you in the next few days.
