I know I say this every month but 6 months?? How did this happen? I am torn.. I want him to grow up and am looking forward to seeing him develop but on the other hand, can't he be my baby forever???
Anyway.. onwards and upwards, he's 6 months old and that's kind of a big deal! This month was a big one, although there were no major developments he's generally more curious about motoring and I wouldn't be surprised if I walked it to see him toddling around any day now. No matter where I put him he wants to be off somewhere else and although he can't yet sit or crawl he somehow manages to shuffle his way across the floor. He's going to be a little adventurer, I can tell.
A couple of weeks ago he was playing with his ears a lot and we were concerned he may have had an infection as he would bother them until they were red but according to my online research ear discomfort is a common teething symptom so I'm pretty sure that's all it was.
He's still eating well, 4 bottles a day and one jar of food, I'm looking to add another solid meal to his routine in the next week or two, he's a growing boy and milk wont fill him up forever. I'm also going to try my hand at making my own baby food as I have the time where I didn't when Ella was a baby so it's just another thing on the 'last baby bucket list'!
I'm still kind of shocked at how generally well behaved he is, I've mentioned before that Ella was not an easy baby/toddler so I can't believe how lucky we've been this time around but it would seem he really is just gonna be a good baby. He sleeps well at night, often 11 or 12 hours from 7.30/8pm and takes 2 naps per day on average. I put him down and he smiles at me and I go get him from his sleep and he's gurgling away in his cot.. it's totally foreign territory for me, Ella cried going to sleep, through the night and when she woke up!!
They're the main updates but as I always say I will try to update throughout the month with little milestones.. though I never remember, do I? I need to update his little scrapbook then I might share some pictures of that with you too. For those who prefer to watch than read you can see my video update below.
Until next time...
His hair seriously naturally falls into a little faux-hawk.. it's bizarre but I kinda like it!
