Can you believe this little guy is 6 months old?! Half a year. 182.5 days. Amazing.
He weighed in this morning at 19lbs 12 oz (80%) and 28.5 inches long (greater than 97%), head at 17 in (i think...about 50%). He is pretty much coming in at awesome all around.
On this glorious 6 month birthday, he cut his first tooth! Bottom left. With each day brings that little toofy farther through his little sore gums. Overall, he has been a trooper. In fact, since it has popped through..his nights have been a little better. His typical night time is a 7:30pm bed time, he will cry out around 2am (but a quick rock and pacifier, he is back to sleep in minutes) and then a bottle around 4:30am when he wakes up STARVING. Well, according to him, he is starving. Then back to sleep until I hear his sweet little morning coos and giggles around 7 or 7:30.
He is eating food like a champ now (after a very auspicious start). Two meals a day...so far, apples, pears, homemade sweet potatoes, squash, carrots and fresh bananas through his little mesh feeder. Tonight...peas. Yikes.
He is so sweet and snuggly. He gives hugs and "shark bites" like no body's business. He laughs, giggles, and is basically the sweetest little guy I know. Everyone that he meets says one thing.."That is the happiest baby I have ever seen." I'd like to think maybe we had a little bit to do with it...:)
This little man also thinks he is going to just start crawling a little earlier than his sister did. In fact, she didn't even attempt it until around 9 months. As you can see...he is ready to get this movin' thing going!
|So proud of himself!|
