I was so emotional as my son turned 6 months. I never expected to love him as much as I do, and be so happy and sad at the same time at how quickly these past 6 months have gone. He’s not considered a little baby anymore! Here’s how this past month has been.
Height/Weight: Eesa was weighed at his 6 month appointment and he was 15.3lbs. Still on the smaller end of babies, but growing according to his own curve.Grow baby grow!
Daily: His day is pretty much the same as it was when he was 5 months old. He wakes up at 8:30-9:00 for a feeding, then talks himself to sleep. He naps until about 11:30-12:00pm then wakes up, drinks milk, eats some solids (we are doing baby-led weaning) and plays with his toys. Sometimes he does time in the jolly jumper too. He takes a nap, and goes in this cycles usually until bedtime.
Bedtime: Not much new to say here haha. All I’m learning from these updates is that we are blessed with a very consistent baby. He did not go through any new sleep changes, which we are very very grateful for!
Eating: We started a whole new variety of foods with him! He eats pretty much what we eat or sometimes I make him his own food, but no more purees! And honestly it makes life so much easier and simpler. I love baby-led weaning and will do a post on it soon, as I could go on about it for days.
Sizes: In sweaters he can fit into 6-9months, like the one shown above. He can also fit into Zara pants and sweaters that are 6-9months. Other than that he is still comfortably fitting in his 3-6month clothes still!
Here are some of the things he’s learned recently:
- Can sit up on his own for long periods of time
- Can lift himself up onto his hands and knees
- Can push forwards a little bit
- Is developing his pincer grip
- Can chew on foods
That’s all for now! I love him more and more each day and can’t wait for what’s to come! Looking forward to writing on here more often.
