Half a Year!

Six Months Old

My Appearance:  I am half a year old today!  I went to the doctor today and I am 28 inches long which is in the 90%, and I weigh 18 pounds 5 ounces, which is the 74%.  My hair is getting longer and Daddy thinks I need a hair cut but Mommy does not.  I get my hair parted to the side and I have little curls around my ears.  I still have a bald spot on the back of my head but I don’t know why because I am never on my back.  My eyebrows are still not really there.  I have the cutest smile and when I smile really big you can see my two bottom teeth.  I still have quite a few rolls but I have grown taller so they are getting a little smaller.  Yesterday I moved up to size 3 diapers, they are a little big but I’m sure they won’t be for long.  I am wearing size 12 month clothes already because I am so long. 

Milestones:  This month was not a big month for milestones.  I am mostly getting better at the things I already know how to do.  I am talking a lot more and I must be funny because Mommy and Daddy always laugh at me.  I am also laughing a ton.  Mommy and Daddy are so silly and they try so hard to get me to laugh that I can’t hold it in.  I also have noticed Kiara more this month.  She will come over by me so I can pet her, she also gives me kisses every once in a while.  I have figured out how to use my hands a lot more.  I can reach for stuff and grab it.  I can also switch toys from one hand to another.  I drop stuff a lot but I have plenty of toys I can get instead.  I also know my name.  Mommy and Daddy will call it out to get my attention and I listen most of the time.  Today I started eating solid food.  I don’t really like it yet and I gagged a few times but I am sure I will get the hang of it soon.

Daily Routine:  My routine is pretty regular in what goes on but not really the timing.  I wake up anywhere from 6-8 AM, take 2 or 3 naps a day, and go to bed from 7-8 PM.  In between my sleeping I play with my toys which I love.  I always want something in my hand, and I put everything in my mouth to try and figure out what it is.  Mommy also started to brush my teeth.  I don’t really like the apple-banana flavored toothpaste and I give a sour face every time she puts it in my mouth.  I eat about 6 times a day.  I still enjoy eating but there is always something going on so it takes a while to get through a feeding.  I also love bath time before bed.  Mommy puts me in my Bumbo and I just play in the water.  I love to splash and play with my toys.  I also love story time after my bath. 

Special Events:  The 4th of July was this month and we went over to a party.  There was a different dog over there and I didn’t really like him.  One night Mommy put me to bed about 7:30 and I went to sleep for about an hour then wanted to get up and play.  Mommy tried to put me back to bed but I didn’t go back to sleep so I got to stay up late and hang out with Mommy and Daddy while they watched a movie.  I finally went back to bed around 10.  Another night we all went out as a family to eat dinner.  We have not done that in a long time so it was fun to get out of the house.  One thing I loved this month is Mommy and I went to a park and I got to play on the swings.  I had a great time and can’t wait to go back.
