Casey is 27 weeks old today, the 1st week of his 6th month of life. He's over his cold and hasn't thrown up on me since last Friday. Life is good. I told Husband I'd start putting Casey in his crib at night starting at 6 months and yesterday was sort of Day 1. He fell asleep in my arms on the couch at around 8 so I put him in his crib. It was weird falling asleep in my bed without him curled up against me. Then at 11 o'clock he woke up screaming. Apparently being alone isn't his bag. I brought him into the bed with me and he slept there til morning. I guess we'll try again tonight.
Casey's big on being in the standing position. If Husband holds his hands he'll even put one foot in the front of the other like he's walking. Since he loathes tummy time and instantly rolls over to avoid it I have a feeling he's just going to go straight to walking. My brother did that and was walking by 9 months old. God help me if that's what is in store. Casey is also in the "lunge forward" stage of his life so there have been a few face plants this week. He can also sort of scoot his booty to get closer to something out of his reach. The kid knows what he wants and will get it come hell or high water. Hooray.
