Colin is 6 months old.


My little baby is 6 months old! They don't lie when 'they say' that time flies!

Weight: 19lbs 13 oz (80th ile%)
Height: 28.75" (96th %ile)

Head Circ: 44.5cm (63rd %ile)

Likes:

  • Eating
  • Daddy coming home from work
  • Baby Signing Time
  • Sadie and Griffin (although I'm not sure the feeling is mutual)
  • Putting things in his mouth
  • Biting down on anything within reach
  • Giving hugs and kisses
  • Jumping/bouncing
  • Having air blown into his mouth (started as a trick to get him to let me use the snot sucker, he LOVES it)

Dislikes:

  • Tummy time
  • Teething
  • Sleeping
  • The snot sucker (nasal aspirator)

Sleep:
HA! 2hrs at a time if we are lucky.

New things:

  • He just rolled over for the first time this week (he is a little behind on this, mostly because he hates being on his belly) He can get from back to side or belly to side but he doesn't seem to know what to do with his bottom arm.
  • When he wants something he starts breathing in and out really fast in a very excited manner.
  • A new trick he started when he bites down on something (a spoon, pacifier or toy) he will create tension in his neck so his whole head shakes. Its funny but it makes feeding him a little slower.
  • About halfway through the month he started blowing raspberries all the time.


    A few more pictures just for fun..

I really can't believe he's already 6 months old -- or that Sam and Ben will be 10 months old tomorrow. What happened to our little babies???

6 months- congrats! What an adorable boy. And you're right - he's definitely bigger than Natalie! She's only 18.5 pounds. She's in the 10% or so for weight. She's such a skinny little thing; 13 months old and still fitting into some of her 9 month clothes. I have a ton of 12 month stuff that isn't going to fit her for at least another month or two. She's just so skinny! But they all grow at their own rate, and you know Colin will grow into it. He's adorable at any size!

Looking back now on 6 months do you have an advice for new moms on things you may have registered for knowing now what babies use past the first few months or any new products on the market that are a must have?-Elaine

At 6 mos Becky weighed 17lbs. 5 oz. and was 27 inches long. Her doctor couldn't get over how alert Becky is and how easy she smiles. Still "no" teeth SHOWING...but is teething alot!She is still not using a high-chair...my daughter did not believe in bending in the middle. I had to feed her in her walker. Her two positions were laying or standing! :)
