KC 6 Months...and counting

This baby boy is getting so big--so fast! No Fair! Slow down! Take your time! Already, to celebrate his 6 months of life he has begun to sit up all by himself, hold a bottle all by himself, roll over front to back and back to front sometimes. He has 2 baby teeth on the bottom which he has had since about 4 months--way earlier than the other kids. He still smiles easily and loves to be tickled and nuzzled. He doesn't always sleep the night but usually he only wakes up once during the night. I guess it's about time to take steps to "help" him sleep the night but I'm not looking forward to that.
He has started eating solids and isn't quite sure whether he likes them or not. I typically ease pretty slowly into the food thing. He has been healthy and happy up until this Feb. when he got a real doozy of a cough/cold/bronchitis type thing. He seemed to respond to abx well and got a lot better but is now relapsing into a similar thing. Sad. He tends to get those nasty coughing spasms like I do. I can't seem to find just the right remedy and so we both suffer for what seems like forever. It is never quite fair when both mom and baby get sick at the same time. One or the other is manageable but when we are both sick, life seems somewhat miserable. Then again, when you look at such a cute little face with such kissable, adorable cheeks and such wide, all-knowing eyes and such a cute, button nose, you tend to forget all about anything except extra-sloppy smooches and pudgey, little fingers grasping yours.

Julie, he is such a DOLL! I can't believe how big he is getting, SAD! I had to laugh at Andrew on Sunday because we arrived a little late to sacrament (surprise, surprise!) and we were out in the foyer. Andrew must have told you guys he was going to the restroom or to get a drink, but we saw him coming in from running outside...HILLARIOUS! That kid makes me laugh!!!

What a beautiful little guy! It is crazy how fast they grow-our little Olivia is just a tank and it feels as if we just had her. KC-is such a doll though and I see so much of you guys in him. Oh just thought I'd let you know-Sarah is expecting her first in October.

He is one handsome guy! They do grow up way too fast. Take care!
