Our 6 month old!!

Emmitt has grown so much!  At his 6 month check up he weighed 19 pounds 10 ounces and is in the 85% for weight.  So in other words...he's breaking my back!  He's so fun though.  It's so nice that he's sitting up all by himself and that he enjoys sitting on the living room floor.  He loves to play with his star stacking toy and his tool bench.  They both make noise and play music and he loves it!  He is a joy to be around!
A few weeks ago he started cutting his first bottom tooth and since then a second one has popped through.  He's eating all kinds of baby food and loving most of it.  For some reason bananas aren't tasting so good to him right now, or prunes.  I can't blame him for the second one! Last Saturday he tried macaroni and cheese(baby food style) and loves it. 
Another thing he enjoys is music!  When anyone (me, daddy, Aunt Suzi) sings to him his whole face lights up and he starts waving his arms and kicking his legs.  He really likes 5 little monkeys (jumping on the bed and swinging through the trees), 5 little ducks, I'm a little tea pot, and well pretty much anything I can think of to sing to him!  He also LOVES it when Dave says the Boa Constrictor poem to him and tickles him.  He starts smiling and eating his hand when Dave starts the first line...(Oh I'm being eaten by a boa constrictor). 

Well, just thought I would write about some of the things he loves and share some new pictures.
