6 Months

Seriously, half a year.  I can't believe my baby is 6 months old.
You've had a busy month.  You went to the lake for the first time, which was also your first night away from home.  You tried food for the first time.  This month has been fun and trying.  You've been more cranking this month but I think you were just frustrated trying to learn new things.  You've been way more pleasant the last week or so.

  • You weigh around 15lbs 8oz (10-25%)
  • You are around 25" long (10-25%)
  • Still wearing some 3 month clothes but mostly 6 month stuff, I've put you in a few 9 month outfits
  • Size 2 diapers
  • Your hair is thinning out so much.  It still stands up some but nothing like it did.  It's also lightening up too.

  • We tried solids but you aren't very interested.  We're giving it a little time.
  • You've tried carrots, peas, green beans, sweet potatoes and applesauce ( you don't eat anything consistently
  • You're still nursing every 3-4 hours during the day and once during the night.
  • You take one bottle a day it's usually 5-6 ounces
  • I have been making baby food for whenever you decide you're ready for it
  • Sleep hasn't been great. 
  • You're sleeping about 10 hours at night waking once to eat.
  • You usually take one good nap (1.5-2hours) a day.  Sometimes you don't though.  Sometimes you just lay in the crib and cry.
  • We're having to retrain you to put yourself to sleep.  That hasn't been going well.

  • You found your feet.
  • You learned to blow bubbles and think it's hilarious
  • You started rolling from your back to your belly but you forget you know how to roll from you belly to back, so you usually just lay and cry until someone rolls you back.
  • You're trying to pull you knees under so you can crawl.  I'm not ready for that.
  • You're not quite ready to sit yet.

  • You know our voices and look when you hear us.
  • You'll pet Ally if she gets close enough to you.
  • We had family pictures made (finally) and you did great!
  • You got to celebrate Father's day with you dad and both granddaddies.
  • You started doing a fake cough for attention.  It's hilarious.
  • You still love Mickey Mouse Clubhouse
  • You're starting to play with toys more
I feel like you have grown and changed so much this month.  Your personality is starting to really shine.  You are a talker.  You love attention and we love giving it to you.  I can't believe we're on the downside of your first year.  I know you are going to grow and change so much.  It's such a bittersweet feeling.  I want you to stay my baby but I love watching you grow and learn. Stay sweet my little love bug! 
Happy half birthday!
