I have been putting off documenting my dear boy's 1/2 birthday for so long that we are almost to seven months! Argh! I've been finding out that all of those trite sayings that people say are oh so true. Take for example the phrase, "they grow up so quickly." How is it that I already have a six month old son? It still seems like he is so fresh and new to our lives that it is impossible to fathom that half a year has passed. My heart and thoughts have not caught up with the time that has passed. So here I am with a six month old celebrating his 1/2 birthday and I'm still amazed at our good fortune.
So what has six months brought my dear little E? (recorded actually at the sixth month mark BTW!)
Height, weight and head circumference? No idea as my scale is crap and the pediatrician is running far behind for their appointment schedule.
Food? Formula...usually about 20 oz in increments of 4 oz. Rice and oat cereal. Pureed versions of : sweet potato, green beans, apple, banana, and avocado! He is my hungry hungry hippo and loves to eat anything I give him which makes me cheer.
Activities? Still rolling from front to back, sitting up for a few seconds at a time, actively grabbing toys and trying to scoot around like an inchworm.
Adventures? Ha. Not this month.
Sleep? Still sleeping through the night with random wake-ups needing a binky, diaper change, or food. Napping is still spotty but generally occurring in the morning for about 45 minutes and then an our in the afternoon. Sometimes a short 30 minute snooze before dinner.
I've been writing blog posts in my head, so now I just need to get them down before they disappear into the recesses of mom brain. BTW, which photo should be the official six month picture?
