Brent is actually almost 7 months old now but he just had his 6 month checkup. So it turns out Brent is a little shrimp. He is so stinkin active that we can't keep fat on him. He did not gain any weight since his 4 month checkup and weighed in at 14 lbs. 4 oz. (3-5th percentile) but grew an inch and was 26.25 in. long (50th percentile). I've added a couple of extra feedings into his day to try and fatten him up a bit. He just never, ever stays still.
Brent now has 2 teeth and says "mama" and "dada" only when he wants to. He is sitting up great but still has no desire to crawl. I'm still thinking he might skip crawling because he has been trying to walk ever since he was 2 months old. So far he eats everything I have tried to feed him but green peas. But really, who likes green peas? He is so much fun and I feel more and more blessed every day to be able to stay home with him. It is truly the best job in the world!
Here are some pics by request (actually, DEMAND) from Brent's Nana. :)

We are really enjoying living in Rocky Mount so far. There are a lot of things we like about living here. We get to see Brandon A LOT more, we are close to my family, better shopping ;), more things to do, and SNOW. We are much more likely to see snow in Rocky Mount than in Washington. So we got to enjoy Brent's first snow today, and Brandon got to stay home from work (his job is much more flexible now). We were in Florida for the first snow here this winter, so this is our first. Brent didn't really know what to think of it. He didn't mind putting it in his mouth ofcourse. That boy will eat ANYTHING!
