Cole's 6 Month Stats

I'm posting this 2 days late as I wanted to include a 6 month picture!

My little guy is 6 months today and we celebrated with a visit to the dr and shots in his legs...poor little guy!  He's weighing 15 lbs and 13 oz now (up to the 25th percentile), he's 26 1/2 in long (35th percentile) and his head circumfernce is 17 in (35th percentile).  He's a healthy baby and got a clean bill of health! 

Things he's doing now: 

  • Rolling from tummy to back and back to tummy.  Although a lot of times when he rolls from back to tummy he promptly forgets he can roll back to his back! 
  • Grabs at toys and brings them to his mouth.
  • Grabs his feet and almost has them in his mouth!
  • Loves to be tickeled!  Not sure if this is a baby thing or what but Caitlyn always loved to be tickeled and still does at age 3! 
  • Grabs his bottle but doesn't really hold on to it.  Not because he can't but because he doesn't care to. 
  • Still doesn't really sit up on his own at all.  But we're practicing and we'll get there!  He does great in the bumbo although it looks like he's usually trying to climb out of the thing! 
  • Loves bouncing in his jumperoo! 
  • He's eating some baby food.  I tried for about 2 months to get him to eat cereal but he wasn't having it.  He'd gag and spit it out every time.  Even cereal with fruit mixed in.  So I finally started him on apples and he did better.  Then sweet potatoes which he loves and now banana's which he also seems to love!  Next up is squash! 
  • He's drinking 4 or 5 6 oz bottles a day. 
  • He usually takes a short morning nap and then a longer afternoon nap and is sleeping through the night....but only if he's in the carseat.  The pedi this morning said not to worry about that, the carseat isn't bad for him to be sleeping in and just try at least once a week to get him to sleep in his crib instead.  Last night did not go well in this endeavor!  He slept from 8:30 til 10 and then was up every 15 min until I put him in his carseat and he slept without a peep for the rest of the night!  Not a good habit to be in. 
  • Caitlyn makes him laugh all the time!  It is so adorable and she just eats it up!
