Kepler {Weeks 21-28}

While still my beast baby, Kep's growth has slowed and he is slimming down a bit (though he's still got a big ol' noggin).  The biggest changes have come in his personality, he is so incredibly mellow now, well except for in the car about half the time.  He loves attention, and certainly gets his share of it from all of us.  We are all completely smitten with him, Quinley so much so that she cannot help but bite him on the head at least once a day (grrrrr).  His first tooth popped through the day before his 6 month birthday, and a second has popped through in the two weeks since then.  He was a little fussy at the time, and super drooly.

We've been working hard to get him to sit up on his own, and he is doing really well now.  We will start solids tonight, baked sweet potato fries are on the menu!  Nursing has become quite the feat lately.  I have to take him to a silent, somewhat dark room, he'll nurse for maybe 10 minutes at the most.  I guess he has learned to be efficient since we are always being interrupted by prying, noisy siblings.

I cannot even express how much I adore my Pepper (the kids' new nickname for him).  He is so easy right now, I am soaking up every moment of it before he becomes mobile and a troublemaker :-)
