6 Months 10.13.11

I really cannot believe you are 6 months old already. I never thought that these months would go by so fast. We love you more and more everyday but some days I feel time is passing by too quickly and I am not getting to soak up all I want of every stage.


You smile is infectious. You cut your eyes and give that toothy grin and we just melt. You have the best laugh in the world, you are such a giggler. You are still content just hanging out. You have not found the need to roll over yet, but I think if you really tried you could. You are so strong-I think you do crunches in your sleep. You absolutely love the jump-a-roo, that is the one place you go crazy! While you are not rolling over you are trying hard to sit. You can do the tri-pod for a minute or two-which according to the doctor is more advanced than rolling. Your two bottom teeth came in this month and they are absolutely adorable, they are also very sharp. You drew blood on Auntie Staci. You are wearing 3-6 month/6 month clothes and size 2 diapers. You are eating 6 ounces every 3 hours. We have not started solids but are doing that with the start of this next month. You are sleeping through the night but are not a great napper. You have had a rough bout with your reflux this month. We had to take you to the doctor before your well visit and you are now taking Prevacid. I am praying so hard this works-it literally breaks my heart to watch you cry in pain. You are starting to be more interested in Riggsy, I hope you two are best friends. You are turning into such a big boy, I look at your face and the little baby is gone, you are so handsome. You have grown a ton over these last two months and are doing so well for being a little preemie.

Here are your 6 month stats:

Weight: 17 pounds 7 ounces 50%
Length: 27.5" 78%
Head Circumference: 17.25" 65%


You are our comic relief in life. You are all smiles, we are really going to miss your gummy grin when your teeth come in. You LOVE to talk, I can carry on an entire conversation with you. This month you decided that you really like to eat your clothes and spit, neither of which we were very happy about. You are never still, we lay you down in one place and we come back and you are on the other side of the mat facing a completely different direction. You still move nonstop. You are a wild sleeper, there is always something hanging out of your crib. You are like your momma when you get tired at night you can fall asleep anywhere. You are consistently waking up at 4am but you eat quickly and go right back to sleep. You are eating 6 ounces every 3 hours just like brother. This month you have decided you want to be helpful! Unfortunately it ends up being quite the opposite in many cases-especially feeding time. You are so interesting in everything and everyone-you light up a room with your happy personality. You are trying to figure it all out. Your hand coordination is amazing I love to watch you find something you want and get it. Everything goes in your mouth now. You have been teething for a while but no teeth yet. You drool nonstop. Your clothes are always soak and wet. You are wearing 3-6 month/6 month clothes and size 2 diapers (you probably could still be in size 1-2). You are long and lean, I have noticed some of your dresses are getting a little short on you, daddy does not approve of short dresses-even with bloomers.

Here are your 6 month stats:

Weight: 13 pounds 13 ounces 45%
Length: 27.25" 94%
Head Circumference: 16.5" 42%
