All the things you can do at 6 months

When you have a baby everyone tells you it goes by quickly and you look at them with your newborn baby and think of course I know that. But you truly don't know how fast. My baby is 6 months old already thats a half of a year. Even though I spend each and everyday with him I am amazed by all that he can do now. It seems like just overnight he is just doing all new things then he did the previous day.

  • He had his 6th month appt and Landon is 15.6 pounds, which is the 14th% which is down from 50th% that he was previously, he is 26 3/4" which is 75th%.

  • We have decided to postone your 6 month DTaP shot until you are older due to your complications you had with your other two rounds of shots.

  • Your still exclusively breastfed.
  • You can start food now. Bananas will be your 1st, avacado your 2nd ( Mommy is excited about making all your food

  • You can sit independently for 15 minutes or so.

  • You can say Hi, dada, dad, daddy, Landon
  • You have said Mama twice

  • You roll all over the place to get where you need to go

  • You now sleep unswaddled

  • You are tolerating the carseat now

  • You no longer nap in your swing

  • You nap in your crib for 1 hr at 9am, and 2hrs at 12:30pm

  • You are crazy in the bathtub, you prefer to lay on your tummy while bathing

  • You get up on all fours and rock back and forth (you have started moving your legs but don't know to move your arms yet

  • From crawling position you can push backwards into a sitting position
  • From sitting you can pull to a stand

  • You are all over the playroom and like to get in the shelves, and underneath things like your bouncer chair
  • You go to bed around 8pm now and wake to eat at 2am, 4am and again at 6am

  • You dont have any teeth yet and there not even close to coming in. That makes this nursing Mommy happy!
  • You reach for everything on my plate and have knocked several things to the floor and are fascinated with mommies chewing skills while eating and just stare at my mouth.

  • You love to happy scream at the top of your lungs then smile in pleasure

  • You notice the dog and will stop crying when she walks in the room or howls

Mommy and daddy love you pumpkin butt!
