The Forgotten Child

In the blogging world Corbin is my forgotten child. Cooper seems to steal the spotlight because, well, he can walk and talk and do fun things. So I am dedicating this post to Corbin.
He is now 6 1/2 months old. Time is just flying! He's becoming more and more mobile every day. He is not yet crawling (as his pediatrician said at his 4 month checkup "his gross motor skills will develop slower because of his body mass". Translation: Your kid is fat) but he can get up on all fours and manages to scoot to get things that he wants. We started him on baby food a few weeks back and he loves it! It is so nice to have a child that is a good eater (Coop eats like a bird). He has also just started to experience the separation anxiety that sets in at about 6 months old. This means that EVERY time I leave the room he starts to scream. I try to walk out when he isn't paying attention, but it usually only takes about two minutes tops for him to realize that I am gone. It is no fun. I'm hoping this phase passes quickly.
We are leaving for home next Friday and he will have his 6 month checkup shortly after. It will be interesting to see how much my little Chubbers weighs.
