Spelling and Writing

The other day, the boys and I were outside playing with chalk. I looked over at G and he had written a L an a O. I asked him what he was writing, he said LOVE. I then asked him what letters came next he quickly said V and E. I was so surprised. I had no idea he knew how to spell and write the word LOVE. Lately, he has been asking us what letters different objects begin with and how it sounds. So we've been giving him words to spell like cat, rat, nap, map,etc. We also recently discovered two great shows on PBS Word World and Super Why. It's amazing to see how much he is learning these days!

M is Six months old

I took M to his six month check up today. I can't believe his first year is half over. He is such a joy to have around. He's so much more relaxed and laid back compared to G. He basically only cries when he is hungry and tried.

So here are his stats.
Weight: 18lbs 8oz. (We call him chunky monkey)
Height: 27in
Head: His head is in the 90%

This is what he's up to these days:
He grabs everything in sight.
He sleeps from 8pm-7:30am
He is now eating baby food at every meal with four bottles during the day.
He almost can roll all the way over.
He is trying to crawl, but I'm not rushing him!
He loves his brother. He watches him constantly and lets G to whatever he wants to him.
He loves to laugh!
We think he's going have a deep voice.
He has started waving.
He has two teeth.
He can hold his own bottle.

We had his picture taken a few weeks ago. KM took over 100 pics. I'm having a hard deciding which ones to order. They are all so good. His pics are on KM's blog. Take a look
