Half a year old! I really don’t know how that’s possible!
This has been the best 6 months of my life, Hayden. Being your Mom is the the best gift!
We had your 6 month well-check with Dr. Willman and here are your stats:
Weight:16 lbs 12 oz. (38%)
Height: 26 1/2 inches (58%)
Head: 43.9 cm (58%)
You are still in size 3-6 month clothes and size 2 diapers. We’ll probably move up in both within the next few weeks.
You have definitely moved into a whole new stage. You are mobile! You roll and scoot all over the place. You push up on your hands, but haven’t gotten your tummy off the floor yet. 🙂
You are still the smiliest baby we know! You are always happy, unless it’s bedtime. You definitely make sure we know when you’re ready for your bath and bed!
You always want in on the action (your Dad says that you get that from me). Your head is constantly moving back and forth watching whatever is going on around you.
You LOVE food. You have now tried sweet potatoes, squash, carrots, peas, green beans, apples, bananas, peaches, prunes, and mango. You have loved every single one.
You still get oatmeal in the morning at Debbie’s and then a fruit or veggie at home with us for supper.
You’re still drinking between 4-5 oz. every 3-4 hours and a big 8 oz. bottle before bed. You’ve still only had breastmilk and I am so proud we’ve made it 6 months!
You got back on track with sleeping through the night again and then you got a horrible cough/cold that kept waking you up at night. Now you have been waking up around 4 am to eat a little and then you go back down until about 6:30 am. Although I really wish you would go back to your 9-10 straight hours, I can live with this for now 🙂
You celebrated your first Halloween and were the cutest little lion! We’re so excited for the Holidays coming and to experience all of these firsts with you.
The past six months have been such a joy! We honestly don’t know what we did without you. Your smile makes my heart melt every time. I can’t wait to see how much you grow and change in the next few months. It seems like every day you learn something new! We love you little buddy!
