6 Months of Alex!

Oh my goodness!  Did 6 months really just fly by?  Is my son really growing this fast?

So I guess it is time to recap on the last month and then later this week I will post a 6 month recap.  But every time I work on it I have a meltdown!

Look how big he is!  And as you can tell by the picture he is full of personality and life.

Height:  28 inches
 Weight:  17 lbs 8 oz

Head Circumference:  43.5 cm

Diaper Size: Size 3

Feeding:  Alex is doing so well with food.  You have tried everything but peaches now and I am still so very nervous to give them to you.  But due to a new addition for you, you have been experimenting with finger foods under close supervision of Mommy or Daddy.   

Sleep:  Your sleep patterns are still the same (still sleeping for upwards of 12 hours straight) and Mommy and Daddy know how blessed we are for that.  And you are now in your crib until about 7 or 8 in the morning when you come into our room, have a bottle and go back to sleep until about 10.  You also put yourself to sleep very well.  I lay you in your crib when you start to get fussy and you may play with your sensory balls for a few minutes or sometimes even fuss, but a few minutes later you are asleep for the night.

Milestones:  You are a backwards crawler!  You do it all the time.  You also roll ALL OVER THE PLACE!     We have baby proofed everything but you still manage to roll and hit your head on the wall or your toy box.  You also are able to sit on your own.  You can do it for minutes at a time if someone is around, but you much prefer to be on your belly and roll around, so most of the time you have no interest in sitting up.  You are also holding your bottle with each feed.  And you have a tooth!!  

It is hard to see in this photo but it is the bottom right, you can see it though.  And after admiring that tooth today I can see that the tooth next to it is about to break through also.

Loves:  Your toes, anything hard to chew on, and food!  You love baby food and finger foods!

Dislikes:  Things being taken away from you, seeing your bottle and not getting it right away, and hats.

Adventures:  Well we celebrated your first Christmas and New Years.  We also had your 6 month pictures taken.  And we survived the "End of The World."

Like I said at the beginning of this post I will be doing a 6 month recap later in the week, or maybe next :).
