Six Months Old!

Today is Kimble's 6 month birthday!!  As a birthday present from the insurance company... he gets Plastic Surgery! Sweet little cleft lip.  I'm going to really miss it.  

 In anticipation of this hospital stay, we had his six month visit with the Pediatrician last Friday.  Here he is, chubby thighs and all, getting ready to be examined by the doctor.
He weighs in at 15.5 lbs!  What a nice, healthy baby.  He continues to be the light in our life.  The way he interacts is so adorable. He really likes to engage you into delightful babbling conversations, and he loves to watch what is going on around him All The Time.  He recognizes his siblings and likes to smile at them.  He likes to be  patted very strongly on his bum or back as he goes to sleep.  He still loves to be swaddled in blankets and he prefers to sleep on his side.  He absolutely refuses to eat solids.  Nothing but breastfeeding for him.  We are hoping he'll change is mind about food over the next month.

His binkie is still one of his most treasured possessions, but much of his time is spent sucking and chewing on anything he can get in his mouth.  I catch him quite frequently sucking on his thumb.

He is simply adorable.  Happy Birthday Mr. Kimble!  

Can you believe it's been six months?
