6 months -and EATING!

Sean is 6 months old now - we can hardly believe it! The craziest thing for us is that he appears to love food. As soon as he starts to anticipate it (when you get near a high chair) he starts to get frantic until you start feeding him - and if you wait too long between bites he lets you know. This may be perfectly normal for most, but it is a little bizarre for us. Don't get us wrong - this is not a complaint, we are thrilled! Keira has already started watching this - she sometimes seems to think he is nuts, and sometimes she becomes more interested herself. We are also going to have to start baby proofing the house again as he is going to crawl any day now and is sitting up fairly well on his own. He is still the happiest little guy I have ever met!

Keira is also doing well. Her walking and balancing is getting better and better each day. She is determined to walk everywhere, unless she is exhausted and then she will let you carry her. A new quirk - when we get her out of the car and let her walk into the house on her own she insists on using the front door - we find this odd as we ALWAYS go in through the garage. So, we let her go, and someone has to go through and let her in. She is always giggling when you open the door - seems to find this quite amusing. We have also been working on potty training - not seriously, but we put her on whenever possible. She always does a little something and diapers have less and less in them. I find this happening so soon with so little communication very encouraging!

Can't wait to see what happens next month!!

Cute!!! That is great that Keira has such a sense of humour and Sean is eating like a madman. I think this will really help Keira start to want food as well. Fingers crossed!!
