Camden - 6 months old!

Just took my little boy in for his 6 month checkup...he is growing up way too fast!  He can sit up pretty well but isn't quite ready to be left on his own as he still tends to lean over and land on his face quite a bit!  He rolls quite a bit...his very latest trick is to roll over several times from the middle of the floor until he is under the Christmas tree and then he tries grabbing ornaments off of it!  He still will have nothing to do with any kind of bottle or baby food so hopefully he will become more interested in food over the next few months!  He weighed in at 18.7 pounds so he is down to the 65%ile for weight which is skinny for my kids at that age :) and he measured in at 26.5 inches which puts him in the 50%ile for surprises there!  Camden still loves his feet and grabs them constantly, and if he happens to have socks or shoes on, those must come off immediately which is making winter challenging...he is just going to have to live in his footed pajamas so that his feet don't freeze!  All of his sisters love him and are mostly really sweet with him (aside from a few not-so-sweet moments from Madison each day)...he is going to be spoiled rotten by all of us.  He is starting to give some very open-mouthed kisses which I love and is still just the sweetest little boy ever.  He has had some challenges with sleeping lately but I think we're finally getting him back on track and most nights he goes 8-9 hours, wakes up once and then sleeps another 2-3 hours so not too bad.  He is very close to consistently being able to get his own binky in all by himself which is personally one of my favorite milestones, especially in the middle of the night!  I think he would be on a fabulous nap schedule if it weren't for the fact that I'm always waking him up and trying to work his naps around everyone else's schedules.  I guess that's what you get for being the 4th kid!  We love Camden to pieces!
