You are six months old (in Januray) and the word of the month is curiosity! You are such a curious baby! This month you have been exploring in your walker and you love going all over the kitchen. If we open the fridge or the dishwasher you come right over to find out what's inside. You have figured out how to open one of the drawers in the kitchen, but haven't figured out how to take anything out. . . yet. You aren't quite crawling, but I'm sure you will any day now. You are rolling and scooting anywhere you want to go. I've given up putting a blanket down for you to play one because you'll just roll right off of it. You love your friend the baby in the mirror and will play quite happily with her for half an hour. Your favorite toy is the water bottle that Momma filled with dried peas. You love to roll it around or pick it up and listen to the peas rattle around inside.
You are still nursing exclusively but soon it will be time to try out solids. You love to watch Daddy and I eat and follow our food from our plates to our mouths with real interest and will always reach out and try to grab the food off of our plates.
You are not particularly fond of your carseat or going places. You don't mind getting in your carseat, but once you've been there for 20 minutes you are done and want out right now! When we drove to visit Grandma and Grandpa Walker in Wyoming you cried half the way there and wanted Momma sitting right next to you holding your hand or playing with you.
You love playing with Momma or Daddy's phones or the remote control for the TV. You'll eat anything you can get your hands on.
You still love taking baths and being naked. You love to splash and play with toys in the bathtub. You always try to drink the water or eat the washcloths. You even pulled yourself up to standing in the bathtub and almost gave Momma a heart attack!
You are talking and your favorite word is "dadadadada." You used to say "mamama" but now it's all about dada. You'll also sometimes say "baba" or "ka." You wake up happy and will lay in your crib and talk to yourself when you wake up. You love to talk in church especially, and will get quite loud as you give your opinion during the lesson. Daddy says you are just singing.
You have started to roll over to Momma and try to climb on her lap when you are tired. You are a good nighttime sleeper, but naps are still a little challenging. Sometimes you are a great daytime napper and sometimes a nap is nowhere to be found!
