Happy 1/2 Year!

01/29/14 - 6 Months

01/29/14 – 6 Months

Weight

16 lbs 15 ounces – slightly under 50th percentile

Length

26.25 inches – right on 50th percentile

Health
he has a bit of a rash – too soon to tell if it’s eczema or just life as a baby

He got four shots, including the flu shot!  He charmed all the ladies at the doctors office which got him some extra attention 🙂 A nice distraction after getting stuck 4 times!

Also, he enjoyed the crinkly paper.

Changes

He can sit for longer periods of time now – although not always consistently so we use the Boppy in case he decides to flop backwards (which he does).

We like playing with our toys…

He can make B sounds now along with the M sounds he’s been making for a while.  “mum ba ummm ba ba ba” – yup, I talk baby.

No bad teething days this month but still no teeth.

Eating Solids!! He’s had sweet potatoes, avocados, carrots, and green beans.  We are doing the baby led weaning approach where we are letting Brody feed himself.  It’s going fairly well – he’s still not super into eating but he knows how to put the food in his mouth and he’s eating some of it.  Every night, he seems to get it a little bit more.  He wasn’t very fond of avocados.  He is his father’s son.

Often heard:

“He is so agreeable” – says his doctor 🙂
“What a cutie!”

“He’s very calm”
“So handsome”
“Look at those cheeks”

We still suck our fingers – mostly when we are sleepy or upset
