    Carson 6mo was 16lb 11oz at his appointment a week ago

    Fun Firsts: He's figured out how to go from belly to sitting on his own now. Oh and I ordered bubs costume. He is going to be a tiger baby. Oh and he loves bananas. We started him on baby food 2 days before he hit 6 months (he turned 6 mo on a monday and I started it that sat before). He has had squash, sweat peas, peaches, and bananas loved all of them and he tried a turkey and gravy but wasn't to keen on that yet. He also likes apple flavored baby rice as well.

    Monday Moans: Stupid AF showed up last night without warning. I am on implanon so I never had an idea of when its going to show. This time it was 51-52 days since last one

    For myself: Ummm

    Dinner: I have no idea. I was planning to invite the inlaws to dinner and make spaghetti with ground turkey and garlic bread then realized I have a meeting till 6:30ish which means I won't even get home till after 7 so thats no good. So I am not sure what I am going to make now. Maybe grilled cheese and soup.
