I'm certainly, most definitely having the "terrible mom" feeling. Except Jack has no idea what I'm doing or that this even exist... & probably won't for a long time, ha! But, none-the-less I'm extremely late this month (at this monthly update!) & am feeling terrible about it. I'm here now though so, let's see how our little boy is growing.... Quickly I know that! Cue the tears!
Weight: 18 lbs. 10.5 oz
Hair: Well... it's still there but, certainly thinning out and there is the cute "old man" line in the back from where He lays. It's still cute though & I love it!!
Eyes: Blue as blue can be! I love them too!
Diapers: A size 2 Huggies Lil' Snugglers up until a couple days before He turned 6 months and then overnight we went to a size 3! We've been using Huggies Snug & Dry & so far so good, we love them!
Clothes: So far we are still in 6 month clothes but, creeping into the 9 month clothes. Baby sizes are worse than women's clothing though - it alll depends on the brand & "style" of clothing item that depends on what size we buy. Pajamas are all 9 months, onesies are all 6 months & shirts are all 6 months as well.
Sleeping: Up until right as He turned 6 months Jack would go to sleep about 8pm & wake once during the night, anywhere between 2-4 am.
Eating: Currently taking 6 bottles a day (24 hrs) at 5 oz each. There's times where He doesn't finish them completely but, He seems satisfied & as the Dr. noted, He's not hurting. :) We also started solids at about 5 1/2 months! We tried green beans first & those were a fail! So, we went to bananas, then sweet potatoes & then back to green beans. Jack is a champ at eating now though & after the first couple of bites, getting used to what we're feeding him He typically chows down!
+ Officially got your feet to your mouth & looove chewing on your toes!
+ First lake trip & boat ride were a success! Needless to say, we think you are a water baby - yaay!
+ We were given this exersaucer by some friends after they were finished with it & you LOVE it! It's so fun watching you discover each of the different toys on there & making your way 'round & 'round!
+ You started rolling and have not quit! You only roll from your back to your tummy but, that doesn't seem to bother you because you LOVE being on your stomach! You'll be rolling from your tummy to your back in no time though!
+ You are quite the talker! It seems that you always have something to say & you're getting louder. It's funny & we love to hear you talk!
+ You have suddenly figured out how to fake cough & it has to be one of the funniest things ever! At first I wasn't sure what you were doing but, once I figured it out that you knew you were fake coughing, I died - hilarious!!!
+ You don't have any teeth coming in yet but, you are starting to show teething signs other than the constant drooling that you've been doing since you were 3 months old.
You are one of the happiest babies! Your always happy mood is truly infectious & makes being your mom & dad easy! (There are certainly plenty of challenging moments though). We love you, we adore you & you are the best thing that has happened to us!
