Cole turned 6 months old on June 10th!
Cole had his well check recently and is 27.5″ (90th) and 17 lbs 10 oz (50th). He’s finally getting some chunky cheeks!
He really wants to move now or be upright. He is sitting up fairly well now… as long as he is leaning forward. Loves his tummy time and is trying to scoot forward, but mostly pushes himself back.
Babies are so different. Jada was crawling at 6.5 months! I realize how fast paced her development was now.
We are trying more foods now like veggie & fruit purees and full fat yogurt, but the high chair more fun to play in than eat, right?
Loves clanking around his toys! We bumped up his meals to twice a day in addition to breast feeding. I did reduce the dairy after it seemed like he was really working hard on his poops.
Not sure what to say here as we are on the road and sleep schedules tend to get disrupted. Plus, sleeping in the pack-n-play isn’t as nice as a crib.
He’s totally outgrown his Merlin Magic Sleep Suit, so I need to transition him out, but it really works.
I’m sharing a room with him while we visit my family, so that impacts his sleep. He’s waking 2-3x per night right now. This is a big time regression when he was sleeping through the night. That said, I find myself taking a nap when Jada and he go down for their afternoon nap, or I wouldn’t survive!
He’s become super inquisitive: lights, sounds, contrasts, and familiar faces all capture his attention.
He’s keenly more aware of when I leave the room, and generally that’s not always cool with him.
Cole is much more interested in Cooper too.
He’s also working on sounds like, “Ba,” “Ah,” and “Mmmm” and gets really excited about “talking”!
He’s quick to smile and loves being outside (<–best cure for witching hour).
We really love our little guy and feel like our family is complete, so no pregnancy updates in the future, mmm kay?
