Happy Half Birthday Gavin!

Gavin turns six months old today, I can't believe how fast the time has flown! I don't have his stats yet, as we haven't been to his doctors appointment, but I can show you some of the "tricks" he has learned so far.
He sits very well. As you can see, we don't even use a barricade of pillows anymore!

We've been practicing with a sippy cup.

And we've kind of skipped baby food and moved onto the self feed stuff. I know, it's not the most desirable route to take, but this kid was impossible to feed. He can't sit still for a second, and getting the spoon into his mouth was pretty much impossible. So, we got some biter biscuits, he's thrilled, and it works wonderfully for us.
And, he is starting to crawl a bit more. He's had a "scootch" down for awhile now, but he's finally learning to use his arms.

His favorite toys are not actually his toys. He's in heaven if he can get ahold of a bag, he loves Jayden's cars, and if Jasper is chewing on something Gaving does all he can to get it from Japser. He still has no teeth, but he is working on them! He has gotten himself all the way up to sitting from his belly once, otherwise he can tripod himself up. He also chatters a lot. He has his "dadadada"s "gagagaga"s "babababa"s, and the occassional "mamamama"s down. Along with just a lot of very loud happy screaming. He is a wonderful, happy baby, with a temper. :) He loves his big brother, and his big brother loves him. Jayden is always bringing his toys in for Gavin to play with, and I think Gavin already prefers. He is definately a daddy's boy, he lights up whenever he sees Josh and immediatly starts reaching for him. It's very cute, and I know Josh loves it.
He still is not sleeping through the night.
So, there you are, a little update on who Gavin is today and I got all of my mommy bragging out of the way. He is such a fun little guy, that we're all looking foward to what the next six months are going to bring.
