6 Months Old!!!

Ryan is 6 months old already. Actually, it was on the 14th, but I'm a bit of a slacker. His Grandma Sandy and Grandpa Phil got him his highchair and Daddy and Mommy got him a huge stuffed alligator. Justin wanted to get this alligator when I was still pregnant and I informed him it would be a long time before he would be big enough to play with such a big toy...LOL!! He had his 6 month appointment this last Monday (22nd). He is up to 14 lbs 8 oz, and they measured him at 25 1/2 inches long. I think that was off a little bit as he was not cooperating and kept trying to scrunch himself up in a ball. His hydrocele is gone (YAY), and the Dr. said he is perfectly healthy. He is teething. Dr. Nalley noticed his bottom right tooth is getting very close to coming in. He didn't do very good Monday night after his shots. We were up every couple of hours and he was running a bit of a fever and was a bit restless. Needless to say, I decided to let him just come in and sleep with me around 2 AM and it was amazing how much better he slept. Tuesday wasn't bad (once I finally got him down for the night). He is sleeping pretty much through the night now. He goes to sleep anywhere from 8:30 - 9:30 and wakes up to eat somewhere between 4:30 - 6:30. Sometimes I can get him to go back to sleep for an hour or so, but usually he is ready to get up and start the day. This would be fine if mommy was not suffering insomnia and was able to get to sleep before 3:30 - 4:30 in the morning. Anyway, heres a few pics. My little monkey is getting soooo big!!!!
**Note: I have been trying for 3 days now to put a video on here, but for some reason Blogger is hating on me!! I'll keep trying though and hopefully I can get it on here soon. It is way too cute!!
