My (not so big) Big Boy!!

David had his six-month checkup. He's been big from the beginning but now he's starting to do what the girls did at six months...thin out. He's now only 75th percentile for height (27 1/2 in) and 55th percentile for weight(17lbs 13 oz). But, in the true Somes/Rudderow fashion...his head is still huge. At least he's on the charts (90th percentile). He's such a sweet, calm, and happy baby. He's just content all the time. The only times he cries is when he's tired or hungry, and usually it's more of a low whine that can turn into a cry if you wait too long. He's so easily entertained by his sisters(and vice-versa). His personality is starting to show a little more each day. He loves peek-a-boo right after his naps. He'll lie on his belly, smush his face into the sheet while you say "Where's David" and then he'll pop his head up fast and smile when you say, "Peek-a-boo!" Sometimes he gets so into it that he looks like he's head banging and you can hardly say the words fast enough. He's starting to attempt sitting, usually for no more that 5-10 seconds at a time. When we went to the beach last week I piled the sand under the blanket around him and he sat for quite a while. He's been eating rice cereal mixed with a bit of formula and applesauce in the evenings and is usually pretty good with it, unless he's too tired. Anyway, we love our sweet baby boy!!

He is the cutest little boy. All that hair makes him seem so grown up! I can't wait until he talks to see what he is thinking about. You can tell his mind is always going.

He is so cute! I can't believe he is already six months old. Hopefully, we can meet him soon.
