Drew: 6 Months

Happy 1/2 Birthday to our sweet boy!!!  

  • He's 17 lbs 15oz (60th percentile)
  • 27.5 inches (87th percentile)
  • 17.5 inch head (84th percentile)
  • size 3 diapers
  • size 2-3 shoes
  • 3-6 or 6-9 month clothes  (6-12 are still a little big)
  • Sitting up by himself (with close supervision) 
  • Loves being on his tummy, and is getting up on his knees and is doing a little scooting to reach toys!  Might be crawling soon! 
  • Just started really rolling over from back to tummy!
  • Is moving from sitting to tummy by himself.
  • Has not slept through the night in a MONTH.  Up every 2-3 hours. :( 
  • Goes to bed at 7.
  • He's been saying Mama for a while now... and using it right!  But just this week started babbling other things, like Dada!! 
  • He loves Peek-a-boo right now! 
  • Loves Pat-a-Cake, and moves his hands like he is clapping.
  • Trying to get him on more of a schedule.  Just got out my Baby Wise, and Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child books to re-read.   Trying to implement Eat, Play, Sleep every 3 hours... instead of him eating every 2 hours. 
  • Got a new swaddle - Love to Dream, where his hands can be up.  Also, putting him to sleep on his tummy.
The girls thought Drew needed presents for his half birthday, so I decided to get the walker that Aunt Megs got him for his baby shower out!  He loves it and the height goes low enough that he can touch and walk around!

We thought he needed a pair of shoes :)  Size 3.

Wednesday night, we got out the Diono Radian RXT carseat that we had bought for Drew & decided it was time to say good-bye to the carrier and install this into my car!  Rear-facing, of course.

He seems much happier now!
