6 Month Update

I took our little guy to his 6 month well-check yesterday.  Little guy is right!  He's 16lbs 7oz (25%) and 26.75"(50%).  With those stats he's actually smaller than Tillie was at 6 months.  They say he looks great though.

Movement:  He rolled over back to front while we were on vacation.  He can pretty much sit now too.  I usually put the boppy around him, just in case.  He seems to be so much happier when he's sitting.  He can grab toys and watch Tillie.  He likes for us to hold his hands so he can stand up.  He usually tries to take steps to get closer to Tillie when we do this.

Food:  He's a pretty big fan of baby food.  He's not fond of carrots or green beans, but he does like pears, peaches, mango, applesauce, peas, sweet potatoes, and bananas.  He loved avocado for a week, but now he hates it.  Weird kid.  We've also given him Baby MumMums because he was basically trying to steal Tillie's.  He's pretty good with puffs too.  I have to help him get them in his mouth sometimes though.

Sleep: *Sigh*  It's still not too good, but there is improvement.  He takes 3-4 naps a day.  They're typically about an hour long, sometimes shorter and occasionally longer.  It's pretty unpredictable.  Last night we moved him into his own room.  He only woke up twice!  I fed him for about 15 minutes each time he woke up and then put him back in bed.  It's harder for me.  Just pulling him in bed and falling back asleep was easier, but he woke up a lot more in our room.  We also still swaddle him with one arm out.  He sleeps in his Rock n Play Sleeper.

Size:  His stats are up above.  He's still wearing size 2 diapers, but sometimes I put a 3 on him at night.  3-6 month clothes fit the best.
