Sitting up by himself (almost…)
Six Months! Time to start planning his first birthday party!
6 Month Milestones
Nursing on demand every 2.5-4 hours during the day. Sleeping very well at night (only wakes up to nurse!). His bedtime is normally around 11pm (which is normally also our bedtime, so it works). Sleeps until we wake him up in the morning.
Stays up a bit later – doesn’t like to go to bed until Mummy and Papa do! Sleeps in his Moses Basket for the first few hours. He has started sleeping until 3am or so, but then is back in bed with us for the rest of the night.
During the day he likes to sleep in his car seat or in someone’s arms. But he’s not enjoying daytime naps NEAR as much as he use too!
Wears size 2 diapers and 6-9 month clothes. Diapers fit very well, and he still can wear some of his 3-6 month clothes.
Lots of reddish-blond hair and his eyes are still deep blue! :D
Loves to be held and cuddled. He likes to snuggle on Mummy’s shoulder to snooze. He likes to be bounced by Brother B10′s leg to fall asleep, and wants Papa to walk with him (while he is facing outwards).
Is trying to figure out how to suck his thumb and fingers. Not sure what to do with them, but he is at the “putting everything in his mouth” stage.
LOVES bathtime! He enjoys having his hair washed and being held in the water so his hands can start to “splash” in it. He has taken baths with sister, GO, and likes to watch her. He likes his bath chair and he’s liking the freedom to kick and splash. He doesn’t cry as much when getting out of the bath, and likes to giggle at Papa when getting dressed.
Smiles when happy, which is most of the time! He giggles at us a bunch, and loves to watch his older siblings and giggle at them! He has a beautiful smile and likes when we “gobble” his neck. He just laughs and laughs.
Favorite toys are his Raccoon (Raccoony), his Satin Sock Monkey Toy, and his new “monster” toy from New York City.
Does NOT like to be wet or dirty – he will cry as soon as he dirties his diaper and keep going until he gets changed. Means we use a lot of diapers, but that’s okay. He loves to be in his excersaucer, and poops there every day!
Starting to struggle with the carseat. He’ll still fall asleep IF he is full, dry diaper, and tired. Otherwise he can SCREAM for hours!
Rolls over from front to back pretty regularly. Still gets stuck on the shoulder, and can’t make it all the way around.
Recognizes his Mummy and Papa and smiles when he hears us! He’ll turn his head to find us, if we aren’t in his line of vision. Also recognizes his big brothers and sisters (especially GO).
He goes to nursery every Sunday and has a great time with his loving teachers. No crying (unless he is hungry) and he falls asleep in the church swing for the second hour, usually.
Sits up as a supported sitter.
This month he tried bananas, avocados, and carrots (all homemade)!
