Six Months!

My little guy is already a half a year old!

(we had a busy weekend/day and I forgot to take a picture in his rocking chair so this picture will have to do until I can replace it)

Aedan, here is what you have been up to this month:

  • You weigh 19lbs and 7oz and are 26 inches tall. You are wearing size 3 diapers and size 6-9m and 9m clothes (although we have a few shirts that are 12m and those fit you pretty well too).
  • You started solids this month and you love sweet potatoes and apples. You also like acorn and butternut squash peas and pears. You are not a fan of bananas or avocado, but we are going to keep trying.
  • You drink four 6oz bottles a day, and one 3-4oz bottle with dinner. You have oatmeal or rice cereal and fruit for breakfast, and fruit and veggies for dinner.
  • You wake up around 7:30, take 2 long naps (one in the morning and one in the afternoon), a short catnap in the late afternoon and then go to bed around 7:45/8. Sometime you wake up early in the morning but you just talk to yourself for a few minutes and then go back to sleep.
  • You can sit up by all by yourself so playing on your back is so last month. You will sit with your toys and play for a long time, it is too cute. 
  • You LOVE Hiro! You look for him as soon as you wake up in the morning or from your naps. You squeal and laugh when he licks you or when he and Daddy are playing.
  • You are super happy when you’re not tired, but if it is close to nap time, you do not want anything to do with people other than Mommy or Daddy.
  • You just learned how to jump in your door jumper and it is your favorite thing to do (that and sit in your highchair and bang your toys on the tray).
  • You can roll over from your tummy-to-back and from your back-to-tummy, but you really only do it when your in your crib.
  • You are still very vocal and come up with a new sound to say just about everyday. They crack us up since they usually come with a new facial expression as well.
  • You’re almost old enough to ride in the cart when we go shopping but not quite. You do great riding in your carseat or in the carrier (although you are getting a little heavy!).

Aedan, so far I think this is my favorite age! You are so much fun to play with and you are so interactive. We have loved getting to know you even more this month. I can’t believe it has already been half a year! Maybe I should start planning your birthday party tomorrow since I am sure the next 6 months are going to fly by! :)

Are boys sound just alike! Their sleep schedule is almost exactly the same... and their eating habits are the EXACT same!

Corbin also hates being on his back now... it's sitting up or nothing! haha! He throws a fit if I try to lay him down to play!

He also has and can roll over, but hardly ever does!

I also love the new facial expressions and sounds. I hate that they are growing up so fast, but this stage is really fun!
