Little man is still a happy baby….most of the time! He enjoys rolling around on the floor and watching Hannah’s every move. He started army crawling a few days ago and now he can pretty much maneuver his way around the room (if he see’s something worth grabbing and putting in his mouth). He will occasionally get on all fours and lunge forward or Hannah will “help” him by pushing him forward. I think he will crawl pretty soon.
At his 6 month check-up he weighed in at 16 pounds which put him in the 45 percentile. I looked back at Hannah’s baby book and she didn’t hit 16 pounds until she turned one! He might be average, but to us….he’s a chunk!
He’s wearing a size 3 diaper and size 6-9 month clothes. He nurses 4-5 times a day and is eating 3 solid meals. I give him lots of bananas, pears and avocados because they are easy to mash up. Other than that he’s had applesauce, squash, sweet potatoes, roasted peaches, carrots and green beans.
His sleeping pattern is…well…not that great, but it’s getting better. He takes two naps most of the time (if they are short, we might slip in a third nap in the evening), and he goes to bed around 8:00. He’s finally sleeping through the night on a more predictable basis, so I’m getting more rest (insert Happy Dance)! He wakes up around 6:30-7:00 and sometimes goes back to sleep after he eats.
Nathan…I will take more pictures of you for your next update. Promise!
