6 months old

Brody is now HALF a year old.  I’m finding myself to be very sentimental over a “half birthday”.   He is no longer a cuddly, squishy baby and has morphed into this hilarious little boy.

First of all, why didn’t anyone tell me how hard it was going to be to keep this kid still long enough to get any worthwhile pictures? 

Over the last two weeks or so, I have seen such a change in Brody.  He went from sitting with support to sitting unsupported (but still falling over if he tries to look around too much), standing with support, rolling, eating cereal, and we are working on sleeping with out being swaddled.  Oh, and last week he said ma-ma!  Well, I guess it was more of a mamamamama… but it wasn’t da-da.  So I win!  His favorite toy right now is his jumper, and he loves to bounce so much.  Those little legs go a mile a minute, even when he’s not in there!  

He is sitting up in the high chair to eat cereal each day, and while we still have to brace him a little bit, he is enjoying sitting at the table with us.  He has had a few rides in the cart at Target, and even sat in a high chair at a restaurant so Momma and Daddy could go out to breakfast.  We started swim lessons and he even had a big boy haircut (post to come on that, I promise!)

He is wearing size 12 month onesies, 6 month pajamas, and size 0-3 and 3-6 month pants.  He continues to be a long, skinny baby.  At his 6 month check up he weighed 13 lbs, 14.5 ounces, which is now in the 3rd percentile (down from 10th %).  He was 25 ¾ inches long and has a 17 inch head circumference.  Dr. Agolia is happy that his weight is trending upwards even if he isn’t back on track yet.  He agrees with Dr. Nasir to continue nursing frequently and add in rice cereal and progress onto vegetables and fruit.  We also changed from the Prevacid suspension to using 1/2 a dissolvable tablet twice a day.  We go back in one month for another weight check.  I’m hoping that we see continued improvement.    

I think that is enough for one post, don’t ya think?!
