Six Months Old
My Appearance: I am now 25 3/4 (38%) inches tall and weigh 16lbs 13oz (60%), my head circomference is 16 1/4 (14%) inches. My head is still a little small and so not many of my headbands fit. My hair is growing but you still can’t really see it. I have rubbed a bald spot on the back last month but now it has grown to the sides a little so it looks a lot bigger now. My eyes are still blue they are getting lighter and brighter. I don’t have any teeth yet but I stick my hands in my mouth all the time so they might be coming soon. I still have all my rolls. When my arms are bent Mommy said she counted 7 creases. I have a big round belly and my legs have just as many rolls as my arms. My personality is coming out more as I get older and I am showing everyone that I am laid back. I don’t get upset very often and there is not much that makes me cry, even when my brother accidentally
Milestones: At the beginning of the month I started to roll over from my back to my belly. In the past month I have become a pro at this and now whenever I am on my back I roll right over to be on my belly. I haven’t done this in bed yet because every night when Mommy puts me to bed she asks me to stay on my back, I guess Ill listen to her for a little while longer. I am also getting a lot stronger. My head control is getting better and I am working on sitting (with support). I am also trying to move around. It takes a lot of work and some time but I can turn myself around while I am on my belly. I have also started to grab things. When Mommy is holding my I always can get some hair and I don’t like to let go.
Daily Routine: My schedule has not changed that much in the past month. I sleep all night long, get up around 7 and go to bed around 8. During the day I eat 5 times and take 3 naps. My afternoon nap is the longest at around 2 hours. When I am awake I like to play on the floor. I have been going outside more and am starting to enjoy it a bit more; I still don’t like the wind. About 30 minutes before I got to bed I get very giggly. Mommy and Daddy tickle me and make me laugh so hard. This makes them laugh and it is my favorite time of the day.
Special Events: I celebrated my first Easter holiday this month. I didn’t do much to celebrate but I had fun watching Blaiden do stuff. We had a great time as a family.
