Gman Starting Solids/Sitting Up and Almost Crawling!

We had planned to delay solids until 7 months. But after multiple days in a row of a grumpy baby dude and we could not explain the issues we decided to go ahead and offer some baby food. Only 1 week earlier than planned anyways... so no big deal!

We offered bananas first and he took them like a champ! Bananas are delicious.. so no real surprise. After he had his first meal he fell asleep and it was seriously the deepest sleep I have seen him have in weeks! So I am glad that he is getting some rest with a full belly! We will see how dinner goes.

Here are some photos of our fun day -o- first solids!

We Looooove Bananas! 

He is also sitting up like a champ! While Bastian was sitting by 5 months, Gabriel has shown no real interest... until now! By 6 months he was sitting by still using his hands to support his body. But then one day he decided that he had figured it out! And he has never looked back. We do still have the occasional topple, but he is doing great!
Sitting up like a champ! 6.5 months!

Gman also has his little heart set on mobility! We are not sure if we are excited or scared about this! He has crawling basics down.. but it is more the coordination of everything that seems to be the problem. I'm sure he'll figure it out sooner than later. And I will figure out how high things need to be and how I need to vacuum more often! That much I could live without!

He is super close to crawling as well!

Bastian loves to help where he can!
Bastian has been the best big brother ever! We were seriously worried when we were pregnant, let's face it... Bastian is not the calmest of children. But he has blown us away! He loves to give Gman toys and try to calm him down when he is upset.  We have had a few "Why is he crying?" " Because I poked his eye!" Moments and for that we are grateful! 

More to come on the Well Visits of Both Little Men.

  1. The picture with Bastian is so funny b/c I did notice Tony's head at first and it just looked like he was about to step on G...I took a second look and figured it out though! This sis so fun, I had not looked at your blog in so long b/c there were no new updates, so all these posts are like Christmas for me!
