My little man is 6 months old already. Half way to his first birthday and I can't believe how much time has flown by. I'm sure it's partly because the boy still isn't sleeping and it's all a blur to this sleep deprived mom but I still can't believe it!
Stats: We had the 6 month check up on his six month birthday, which was last Thursday. He weighed in at 19lbs and was 25inches long. Head is still ranking in at 95th percentile. He's in 6 month clothes but jeans have to be 9 months because of his belly and drumstick thighs.
Sleep Schedule: Still not great, but we've started crying it out in hopes that he'll get it. Bedtime is by 8pm, sometimes it's closer to 7:30 depending on how cranky & tired he appears. After 3 nights of CIO, he's still waking up 3-4 times a night fussing or full out raging screams. I've been feeding him at 5:30/6 and then he sleeps again until about 7:30 on the weekends. During the week we have to wake up at 6:30 to get out the door by 7. Nap times are still erratic and consistently 45 minutes at a time. Usually total 'nappage time' is about 90 minutes all day long.
Foods: Still eating about 5-5.5oz at each feeding every 3-4 hours throughout the day. Followed by about an ounce of solids. New foods introduced have been strawberries, bread, pears, squash, potatoes, and your new favorite - avocado. You cannot get enough of this stuff and scream when it's gone.
Firsts: Other than the first foods mentioned above nothing new. Your sitting up unassisted much better and are starting to push fully up to all fours, though you still don't enjoy that.
Favorites: You really love your jumperoo, you can go for a long time jumping in that thing. You love sitting up and playing with your toys. You still love your sister a lot and love when she talks with you. You love avocado and nursing.
I know I say this each month, but each month gets more enjoyable to watch you grow. You become a happier baby each month and share smiles with everyone. I cannot wait to see what next month brings.
