All babies are different: some crawl sooner than others, and some don’t crawl ever – advancing straight to walking. We’ve been thinking a lot lately about crawling styles and which ones William uses and will use in the future. His Godmother, Kristi’s son, Tyler, did a commando type crawling first. William is more apt to try to push his body up with his limbs, sort of like he’s a water skipper spider.

It seems like we’ve been thinking forever that William was teething, especially at the four month point. Now he has two teeth, one poking out a bit more than another

Once again a snippet about baby’s development week is rather significant to William’s development. Right now William is for the most part being given only pureed foods. We did give him small crushed up tiny pieces from our lasagna on Mother’s Day, yet besides that we are not trying food from our plates just yet.

William is twenty six weeks old today, making him six months old or half a year in age. Where has the time gone? Even people who were there with me the week I gave birth are amazed at how fast this has all felt. William is a spirited, active, determined baby who I love watching grow and develop.

These days while he seems to be growing bigger and bigger, it seems William has been babbling for weeks and weeks. I’ve definitely heard ahh, daa and similar sounds from him.

I may not understand, yet I always answer him back with baby talk (rarely) or real words in sentences (most often).

Every Monday since October 23rd has been a bit more special now as it’s a time to reflect on William’s birth and how much he is growing and changing. I get a lot of comments on him including how big he’s getting and what a happy baby he is, which he truly is most of the time.

Every week William amazes me with how much more active and engaged with his surroundings he is becoming. I’ve been telling people for a long time that he wants so much to crawl, to stand to walk, that I just sense his determination even though his body isn’t there yet.

Some weeks the baby development descriptions seem spot on to where William is, others them seem less so. William definitely is into peek-a-boo now with more on an understanding, yet this was true of him even weeks ago. We’ve definitely been thinking he was is or teething for months now. Still, with no teeth fully breaking through yet, it’s hard to know when one will be out and fully visible.

Sometimes the week by week baby predictors are just spot on. This weeks is, though in large part, that’s because William is such a happy baby overall. I have more photos of him smiling than not, and everyone always comments what a happy baby he is.
