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.

not sure – we have a doctors appointment in a month!

Health
perfect!

Looking forward to
Relaxing and playing with our Christmas goodies

Starting solids – I’m looking forward to this and dreading it at the same time 🙂

Changes

He can roll both directions!  and he does it all the time.  He kept rolling under the coffee table so I moved it to give him the whole living room rug.

IMG_2423[1]

IMG_2429

sometimes he rolls over and watches tv…

IMG_2440

He also likes to blow bubbles/lip buzz

IMG_0159

 

He has been teething off an on this month.  Most days he’s fine.  He just likes to chew on things but sometimes he has bad days…

You can tell his teeth are bothering him when he is trying to put more than two fingers in his mouth.

IMG_2434

IMG_2465

He hasn’t had a paci all month – when I give him one he spits it out and replaces it with his fingers so I’ve stopped trying.

IMG_2555[1]

We also love grabbing at glasses and bringing to them our mouth!  Gonna be eating soon

IMG_2577[1]

We love things that are crunchy – This is our crunchy book from Uncle Ethan – we also love our elephant with crunchy ears and our rainbow rings.

Activities & Outings:

THREE CHRISTMASES.  We had Christmas with Nana and Papaw (Brett’s parents) – then Christmas Day just us three – then GiGi and Grandpa (My parents)  So this little boy racked up the goodies.

Also earlier in December we visited Charlottesville and visited my work and our buddies there!  And got to hang out with Aunt Jac and Care Bear!

Had to take a rainbow picture of our cloth diapers. Still in love with them – but solid foods is going to change the game. (I have white ones too but those are boring 🙂 )

This is how our hair looks after we try to turn over in our bouncer

I’m a firm believer that accessorizing should start early in a girls life. 🙂 There is nothing cuter than a baby girl with a bow in her hair…

I wanted to make Baby C some headbands for her congrats-on-being-born gift.  I found this idea on Pinterest!  Link below:

http://www.craftinessisnotoptional.com/2010/07/baby-headband-tutorial.html

I’ve included the steps in the slideshow.  These were so much fun to make and very very easy!  They make a great shower gift – unless of course you are a procrastinator like me and gift them to the lucky mom a week after baby is born.  I guess that’s cool too 🙂

My Beautiful Model!!

I will admit to not making the bow part of this headband.  I found the fluffy part at Joann’s and just turned it into a bow.  Credit for using existing resources?
