E at 6 months

E had his 6 month appointment today.  The doctor said he is perfect, and seemed surprised that he is already showing some stranger anxiety (I thought to myself, "I'm kinda sure he's crying because you're poking and prodding him, not because you're a stranger).

He is still charting small, 14.08lbs (about 10th percentile) and 25.2" (5th percentile).

He loves his feeties!
He's become a sitting up champ.
When he wants my attention, he coughs.
Loves to stare at his brother
Loves to pet Mitten, and will stare at her whenever she's in the room
Generally sleeps for an 8 hour stretch at night.
When it comes to food, this kid loves him some solids.  He took a few days to come around to green beans, but otherwise, we have yet to encounter a solid food he doesn't like.  He's had:  rice cereal, oatmeal, green beans, winter squash, banana, pears, apples, sweet potatoes, carrots, zucchini, and loves them all!

We're still struggling to figure out a nap system...  he falls asleep on the ride to and from daycare, which throws off his morning nap and I'm lucky if he stays down for half an hour.  The afternoon nap sometimes works and sometimes doesn't, but then he's wanting a nap around dinnertime.
