27 weeks

27 weeks. What more can I say?

He's sitting up reliably, though I still put a pillow behind him in case he flies backward in a fit of excitement. He is also coming along on the crawling and will chase his ball from the living room into his bedroom or the dining room.

As for sleeping- we tried to get him to sleep more in his crib overnight, but instead he woke up every two hours. So I happily moved him back into the pack-n-play when I go to bed and he's sleeping for longer stretches again from about 11pm-4:30 am. We're all happier when we get more sleep, so we'll try the crib again next month. He sleeps in the crib from 8 pm - 11pm and that's enough for now.

He's enjoying hitting and drumming on things now. He's also trying to throw his balls to Scott and me. And he loved playing with this box.......

Starting solid food

Last week Bryson turned six months old. It's so hard to believe. He's getting around pretty good.

Just today he crawled off his blanket in the living room around the corner into the dining room chasing one of his favorite balls. I guess it's about time to childproof and actually clean the floors regularly. 

We also started letting him play with a little food. We're trying baby-led weaning where they feed themselves from the beginning. The motto is "Food before one is just for fun." I think it's going pretty well. Although I did feed him a pouch of purple fruits I got for free as a sample. 

We started with sweet potatoes, asparagus, avocado and banana. I think he loves the feel of the sweet potatoes between his fingers. He squishes them around and then sucks a little off his fingers.

Scott's mom also started watching Bryson on Wednesdays and Thursdays so I can work during the day.  Last week his cousins Faith and Carter came over to play too.

Yesterday I ended up getting some cute shots of him. I had him dressed in one of his tie onesies that my friends made at my baby shower. I sat him in the laundry tub while I was starting a load. It was really cute, so I decided to get a few shots.

25 weeks and almost crawling

Well our baby is about to be really mobile. He's so close to crawling. He can get up on his hands and knees and rock back and forth, but he hasn't quite gotten the rhythm of crawling yet.

But he can scoot all over the place, so I have to watch him much more closely now.

He's been sitting since we went on vacation, but now he rarely falls backwards. He's definitely getting the hang of it.

And here's a video of him "swimming" at nanny's house.....

And here's a video of him just being cute......
