My baby boy, you are 6 months old!
You are also a wild child that is always moving! You can roll across the room in a few seconds. You are always on your hands and knees and you can also do an impressive downward facing dog.
You can officially push yourself into a sit position and stay there for some time. You’re going to crawl real soon. You have two teeth (that resemble razorblades). You eat “solid” food twice a day. YOU ARE CHANGING SO FAST!
This month brought the most important change ever: you stopped throwing up (as often). GAME. CHANGER. You gained a little more weight this month than you have the preceding moths and I am so happy. I was so sad that you weren’t gaining a lot of weight because of the puking! The mom guilt is real.
You’re 16 lb 5 oz and 27 1/4 in tall. I’m starting to really notice that you’re growing when I hold you at night. Most nights, you fall asleep in my arms after you nurse. Lately, I just see that you’re bigger. I know that 6 months is when babies become really fun, and that is true for you too, so I am excited that you’re growing. I just know it happens in the blink of an eye and it’s just as sad as it is fun.
My favorite thing is watching you and your sister. You seem to adore her. You’re always smiling at her and trying to touch her. She loves you too and always gives you a lot of hugs and kisses.
I remember writing a post when your sister was little about how weird it is when people ask if your baby is “a good baby“. I am now eating my words because you are actually the definition of a good baby. Always happy. Always smiling. Always calm. Please stay this way 🙂 I love you very much!
