6 Months old

Tanner is now 6 months old! Hie is sitting up well on his own, and seems to have outgrown his reflux (WOO HOO!) He is a very happy little guy. He likes to "talk" and says "dada" all the time, he says "mama" only when he cries. He has learned to spit (make a raspberry with his tongue). He is a good little eater and has seemed to like just about any food he gets. Now that he is getting solids, he is sleeping through the night again (he took a little break for about 2 weeks and was needing a snack in the night). He loves to take baths, especially with his big brother.
He's developed some nick names; the tan man, Tanner Manner, monkey man, little man, baby(from Natalie), munchkinroo, sweet boy.

Stats from his 6 month visit:
weight: 15 lbs 6 oz
Height: 25 1/4 inches
Head circumference: 17 1/4 inches

Doing his usual grin

See, this is just what he does

Tanner's first food

Tanner had been showing signs of being ready for solids just before Thanksgiving, but his mean mom didn't want to hassle with that while we were traveling, so we waited. He had rice cereal on the 2nd of December.
And it was uneventful. No funny faces, no gagging, no nothing. He just ate his cereal like he'd been doing it forever. Which was great, but not entertaining!

The first bite

eating like a champ

P.S.-we were able to continue the tradition of Daddy doing the first solid food feeding!

This year my uncle Brian said that he didn't feel like traveling, so he bought everyone plane tickets to go to Green Valley, AZ. This was Tanner's first plane trip (and actually the youngest we've had any of our kids on an airplane). I was not very good about taking pictures on the way there, but got a picture of him on the plane on the way back. We flew out of Riverton, so the planes were very small.
It was great to see everyone, and the 60- 70 degree weather was a good break for us. We all laughed that we were all wearing short sleeves and when we'd go out, everyone else was wearing jackets.
Hunter and Natalie had fun swimming in Great Grandpa's hot tub, we went to the Sonora Desert Museum and had a great Thanksgiving dinner.

Tanner on the plane (Yes,he is in his PJ's and I don't just look like I just rolled out of bed, I DID just roll out of bed and throw on a sweatshirt, our plane left at about 7:00 am)

We sat in the very back of the plane and this is the view, all the way through the windshield
