Six Months Old!
Roman is just about 6 months now. Where has the time gone? He is growing so fast and learning many new things. We go for his six month check up next week. I am sure he will be above average for his height and weight. He is definetely a tough little guy. It is fun watching him discover the world and how it works. I think children teach us more than we, as adults teach them. He is now eating solids at dinner time. He loves apple sauce, peaches, sweet potatoes, and bananas. He has also enjoyed some ice cream, cream cheese, and cake icing from Mommy's spoon (SHHHHH! don't tell anyone). He is also starting to sit up on his own. He doesn't fall over until he realizes that he is sitting up by himself. I guess we have to work on his confidence:) He has officially taken over his crib and you never know what position you will find him in when you go to get him. He is very mobile and we are waiting for him to crawl at any moment. He has become very vocal. He loves to use his voice. He loves to scream and pant like a dog. We have no idea where he got this from. He thinks he is funny. He has also discovered how to stick out his tongue. It is hilarious. He has officially become a thumb sucker. It is so cute and I am glad I don't have to keep up with a pacifier.
In the past month, Roman has become quite the little traveler. We flew to Rochester for the weekend for his aunt's bridal shower and he was smothered with hugs and kisses by all the women. We also got to get together with some old friends. It is amazing how time goes by. We were all sitting there with our children. Who knows what we would of been doing 6 years ago. We than had to take an emergency trip to Albany, NY as my father's church burnt down. It was very sad to see but we are looking forward to rebuilding. It was a great blessing for my parents to see Roman on such a sad day. It was a surprise that we went and I am glad we were able to go and show our support. With all that was going on, Poppy was able to give Roman a ride on the tractor. While we were there we were also able to attend my great niece's dedication. It was nice to see the family. After we returned, we took our first road trip with Roman to Baltimore, MD. to visit some friends for the 4th. We had a great time as we walked around the city, ate some good food, visited the aquarium (Nemo was there), and celebrated Rick's birthday. Roman was a trooper and is a great traveling partner.
We are looking forward to having some family down this summer and Roman is having a great time with his cousin Rylee who is staying with us for a couple of weeks. She is a great help.
Thank you for taking the time to read about our adventures. We hope you are all enjoying your summer.
