About: Jacob's 6-month check-up

Much to our surprise, at his 6 month check-up, Jacob (only!) weighed in at 19 lbs 6 oz. I ought for sure he'd be 22! He is also 28.5 inches long - which means when he grows another three inches, he'll be exactly half as tall as I am!

The doctor gave us the go-ahead for him to eat EVERYTHING, adding some yogurt in at 8 months, (just a few weeks away!) and moving to 3 solid meals a day plus 24 ounces of formula. I'm still making all of his food, but there are some fruits and veggies that I'd rather buy pre-packaged to make sure they get to the right consistency (corn, raspberries and strawberries - anything I might not be able to purée well with my food processor). That's okay, though - he's still getting a lot of fresh, homemade food.

Here's what he's been eating:
Cereal - rice, oatmeal, wheat
Avocados, butternut squash, zucchini, sweet potatoes, carrots, peas, green beans, spinach, apples, pears, blueberries, peaches, apricots, prunes, bananas, watermelon, chicken, turkey, cinnamon (on fruits) and cumin (on avocado).

I've also started doing a lot of flavor combos - peas and carrots, spinach and banana, pear and zucchini, sweet potato and chicken - he eats it all!

Some of the store-bought foods that I've gotten include flavors like: corn, kiwi, raspberry, cranberry, mango, chick pea, and beans.

He's getting way better at crawling, so baby-proofing has begun! Thank goodness for Roving Cove stick-on foam edges. He loves crawling into, under, and through the coffee and end tables and I've seen him bump his head and nose on the foam edges without hardly noticing! We put together his walker today. Right now, he can push up onto his feet, and will definitely put one foot in front of the other, but he's still wobbly and unsteady. The doctor told us that he'll probably be an early walker because of his good gross motor skills. Yayyy!!!! (I think.)

Questions for you:
What foods does your baby love? And hate?
How old was your baby when he/she started walking?
