Going Somewhere or not

See Mr. Blanket is a growing baby.  He loves exploring anything he can get his hands on.  He just doesn't work very hard at putting stuff within his reach.  

He gained a whole pound in the last two months.  Now he is 16 lbs, twice his birth weight.  By this age Tiger was 18 lbs and well into 6-9 month clothes.  He loved to eat cereal and other veges and fruits.  His taste for rabbit food died rapidly though.   Blanket likes to nurse.  He won't take a bottle unless it is mommy temp and not from me.  He doesn't like cereal unless it is mommy temp and even then it is a 20 min battle to get him to eat 2 tbsp. of it.  

Yesterday Blanket decided to roll over.  I blogged about him rolling from  belly to back, but yesterday he actually got from his back to his stomach, once.  He was laying there looking around for 5 minutes, and then cried for me to roll him back over.  Now, don't get me wrong a stationary baby who is 6 months old is probably a boon, but it isn't always fun when he demands you hand him the toys he can't reach.  I would almost prefer he got into things.  Safely made messes are easy to clean up and take more time to make than clean up.  Instead he cries when he drops his toys or gets bored in his bouncy chair.

At this age Tiger was rolling to get where he wanted to go, and learning to crawl. He spent his days mastering his muscles.  Blanket spends his days mastering his slaves.
