Preston is 6 months old... and we are moving :)

I have packed up Preston's measurement card so I will have to upload that later but at his 6 month well check his Dr. said he is growing great. He weighed in at 13 lbs. 15 oz. which is the 5th percentile on the growth chart for infants his age. He was 25 1/2 inches tall and in at the 15th percentile for height. His pediatrician said he is hitting all the major milestone markers and looks great. We have introduced solids (i.e. baby food) which he has twice a day with a bit of rice cereal mixed in and we continue to breastfeed as he does not like formula on bit. I did however manage to get him to drink about 1 oz of formula the other night so maybe he is starting to like it. Seeing how he is my last little one I am not really bothered by the fact that we are still nursing and figure I can keep it up if needed until we introduce cow's milk around 11+ months. He is really a happy baby and squeals and giggles a lot. He tolerates tummy time for longer amounts of time, especially when his older sister wants to hang out with him. He loves to chew on anything and everything he can get into his mouth. He has recently gained a lot more control over his hands and has been grabbing his binkie and doing the in/out of the mouth game. He continues to gain better control of his balance while sitting up. We still refer to him as "Mr. Mc-puke-r-ton" as he still is a major happy spitter. Other than that he spend most days sleeping, eating with the occasional 1-2 hours of being wide awake playing with siblings thrown in. Here are some of his recent pictures.
Now for moving news.... We signed the year lease agreement this week and got the keys. We have most of our house packed and hope to start carting things over Saturday night. The plan is to be completely moved in by Monday the 24th. We can't wait!!! Jocelyn is a little nervous about starting a new school but she will do great. Ethan will continue to go to his preschool in Logan and I am sure Caitlyn and Preston will love the new space. Here are two pictures of the house I found online. It is in a cul-da-sac so our kids will really love that when it gets a bit warmer out. I will try to update with more pictures once we get moved in and Internet is up and running.
