Someone is already 6 months old - half a year?!?!?!?! When did that happen?? We are having so much fun now with Cannon - he has completely turned a corner and is such a laid back baby and loves to play and spend time with us hanging out. It is so wonderful to finally be at this point - the first 4 months of a colicky baby were HARD work and very demanding but its so worth it now to be past it and enjoying him so much. He is just so happy now - he smiles at everyone and everything...love it! Here are the latest things going on with Cannon. We don't go for his 6 month appt for another 2 weeks so we'll have the official numbers then.
•Weighs 17.4 lbs acccording to our bathroom scale
•Wears size 3 diapers
•Wearing 6 months and 6-9 month size clothing
•Drinks 7 ozs in each bottle
•Attempts to hold his own bottle but more often then not, gets more frustrated then anything trying to keep it balanced.
•Eating baby food - so far he has had sweet potatoes, squash, peas, green beans, applesauce, pears, bananas, peaches. We usually give him a fruit in the morning for a late breakfast and then a veggie in the evening for dinner. He's not really a big fan of eating - definitely not like his sister who wouldn't leave a drop behind..hahaha. But he's definitely not lacking for anything judging by his weight..lol!
•Still working on sitting up - he's getting close - he can do it longer now and he has the idea down - will probably happen any day where he can do it completely on his own.
•Loves to stand up and jump on your lap while holding him - he is so strong!
•Still waiting on his first tooth - but he is always putting everything into his mouth and suck on his hands and fingers. He also still loves to pull up his shirt/onesie and suck on that too - he is usually drenched within minutes of getting dressed...lol.
•Still a GREAT sleeper - has his last bottle around 8:30pm and will sleep on average for 11-12 straight hours. One day last week he had a rough night where he was up crying until close to midnight....makes us realize how lucky we are that he is such a great sleeper. Luckily it was a one night thing - whew!
•Finally moved him to his crib for naps..the first few days were a little rough, but he finally got it and now takes 2 decent naps a day in there - yay!
•Loves to hold onto his little blankie...just like his big sister
•Loves his jumperoo
•Rolls both ways now when on the floor - although from back to tummy is a lot easier for him to do now - he pretty much instantly does it when you lay him on the floor...then of course he gets ticked off b/c he's on his tummy....he will then usually remember that he does know how to flip back over again and its all ok
•Loves being in any kind of water - pools, bath etc. He splashes so much now in his bathtub at night - I am usually soaking wet by the time we are done.
•Smiling & happy baby - 90% of the time - only fussy when hungry, dirty or tired
•Babbling more and more - love it!! - He also loves to squeal and make all sorts of sounds - becoming very vocal (in a good way)
•Loves getting kisses and being tickled - will make him squeal and giggle. We haven't had a full out belly laugh yet, but the giggles make us just smile so much.
