6 Month Stats

Age: 6 monthsWeight: 19 lb 5.5 oz Length: 27″ Size: 6-9 or 6-12 month clothes, size 3 (but probably switching to 4 soon) diapers Eyes: Blue (they won’t change. trust me) Hair: Growing in spurts. Still looks mostly blonde but hard to say sometimes. Teeth: None yet! Dr Ripley said it doesnt look like they are imminent either, but he has seemed to be teething. Sleeping: Pretty good at night, though has a hard time making it past 6 or 7pm for bedtime. Even if you stay up later, you still wake up at 6 or 7am (sometimes earlier… and sometimes later, like today’s 8AM!) Naps: 3-4 still. Morning nap is around 1.5 hours, sometimes longer. Eating: Around half breastmilk/half formula each day. Usually has 1-2 meals of solids and loves to reach for our food. So far he loves everything except avocados. Movement: Moves all around in his crib, sleeps on his side, leans towards objects while being held or while sitting. Doesn’t love being on tummy still though. Milestones: Sits very well unassisted now, and was pretty much nuk-free until we gave in on a very crabby day… Outings: Visited cousin Danni who was visiting from Chicago. Was passed around to many people and other than being a little tired/fussy he did very well. Favorite toys/activities: Exersaucer, Sophie, dragonfly teether Words/sounds: Raspberries, growling (sort of like the exorcist), squealing/singing, quieter squeals when unsure of things, louder/short squeals when in a room with lots of talking people Memorable moments: Grandma Barb stayed with us for an entire weekend while Dad was in Ohio for work.
