6 months

Andrew is now 6 1/2 months old. We had his 6 month check up today and my chunky monkey actually lost weight! The good news is that he grew almost 2 inches taller. That puts him at 25% for weight and 75% for height.

He's learning to sit up on his own but still has a ways to go. Maybe a second after I took this picture he fell over














I love the expression on his face here as he holds this small pumpkin



















His infamous pout



















And finally just spending some time outside. He loves to reach out and touch things lately. He loved the flowers but wasn't so sure about the leaves.

Nicknames

When Andrew was born, people asked us what we would call him: Andrew, Andy, Drew? Mary and I figured we'd play it by ear and let people call him what they want. After 6 months, almost everyone calls him Andrew, but his nicknames revolve around Drew: "Drewby", "Drew-Drew", or "Drew-Drew Bean" are the most common. His Michigan cousins simply call him "Baby Andrew".

More cuteness

Not too much to report at the VanderKamp household. I just caught a few more good shots of Andrew that I had to post. He can now roll from his back to his stomach...he has been able to go from his stomach to his back for quite some time. He is also getting close to being able to sit up on his own. Tomorrow he will be six months!
