Jed loves teaching Robbie how to crawl.

He also makes the silliest faces! He cracks me up.  He says random words like cookie, bird, cracker, car, night, Daddy, popscicle(I think that one was a freak accident), Mama, little baby, & apple. He mainly just babbles jibberish though.
He knows how to do inflection... by the pitch of his voice you can tell he's asking a question.
He folds his arms and bows his head for family prayer. (So sweet!)

Speaking of pitch, he loves to throw tantrums. Yesterday at the grocery store he wanted to play with the bouncy balls but it was time to go, so I said No. Right there in the middle of the main aisle he threw himself on the ground and started kicking and screaming. I turned the other direction and acted like I was reading a magazine. People stared, of course.  But after a couple of seconds he stopped, stood up, and said "Mama?" All I could do was smile.

Robbie munchky is the sweetest ball of sunshine you'll ever come across.  His hair is absolutely precious! It's the whitest blonde I've seen in my family. We're not quite sure where he got it from.  He's seven months now and is trying to learn how to sit up and crawl.  He's almost got it.   I'm still nursing him... but that's got to stop soon because he has two teeth.  Yep, it hurts. He doesn't sleep through the night yet.  He goes down at 7:30ish and wakes up at 7:00am.  Normally during the night he wakes up at 10:00pm, 2:00am and 4:00am.

We're trying to get Robbie onto a bottle, but I feel like we've hit a roadblock.  He'll take it for about 2 minutes then he's done. It's really random when he decides to drink from it. It's fairly obvious that he'd much rather nurse--- so that makes it all too easy to give-in and deal with the biting. UGH

With lil Jed I weaned him cold turkey.  Once we found out a formula he could digest, it was smooth sailing.  With Robbie, the formula's not the problem--- he's just stubborn.  Any ideas?
