Caden and his Sippy Cup
This picture is from a couple of weeks ago, but I think it is super cute.
Caden turned 6 months old last Sunday (Feb 15th). He is getting so big! When he went for his six month check-up he weighed 16lbs 2oz and was 26 3/4 inches long. He has gained 9 pounds since he was born. He can sit up by himself for a few seconds before toppling. He loves to squeal and shriek to get our attention. He loves babbling to anyone who will listen (which includes the fish in the aquarium, the light in the living room, or the mobile over his bed). We may just have a talker on our hands. We are enjoying Ricky being in 4th year of Med school which is a lot less demanding than the prior years. Really not even close to comparable. Instead of spending hours on end at the school, hospital, or studying we enjoy him being back home for the day by lunch time (assuming he even had to go in that day). Needless to say life is pretty good. Match Day is March 19th. This is the day that we will find out where we will be going for Ricky's residency (the next 5 years). It will be here soon!
The other weekend we went to a wedding shower at a friend's house and Caden was in awe of everyone's glasses that they were drinking out of. He was insistent that he needed a drink out of my glass (as well as Ricky's beer bottle). He was very funny because if you let him grab a hold of it he knew exactly what to do. He opened his mouth and crammed it onto the glass (ok so he kind of knew what to do. He didn't exactly get his mouth on the top of the glass). Anyway being the 1st time mom that I am I didn't let him have any of our drinks but when we got home we decided to let him have a shot at the sippy cup. He loved it! And new exactly what to do. It went straight into his mouth. He thinks he is sooo big.
