Half a Year Old

I can't believe that half a year ago I gave birth to the most perfect baby boy on the planet.  The time is flying by and Lane is 6 months old!  He is busy learning new things and perfecting old skills.  Here are some things he is up to lately.


*Weighed 16 lbs 2 oz at his 6 mo checkup.  (between 25th-50th percentile)
*Was 26 inches long (50th percentile)
*Wears size 3-6 and 6 month clothes
*Wears size 2 diaper
*Wears size 1 shoe but is approaching size 2's!

*Still eats 4, 6 oz bottles a day and solid foods twice a day
*Eats a fruit and cereal in the morning and cereal, a veggie, and a fruit at night!  Nobody can believe he is eating that much at night, but he can put the baby food away!
*Is still on stage 1 foods, but has tried all of them.  LOVES carrots, peas, and apples the most.
*We never tried sweet potatoes again after they gave him horrible gas.
*Prunes make his diapers extra dirty, but he likes the taste!
*Also likes squash, green beans, pears, bananas, and fresh avocado.
*Tried "Puffs" for the first time, but doesn't quite get the concept of grabbing them and putting them in his mouth.
*Also tried drinking from a sippy cup, but prefers to bang it on his tray instead of drinking from it!

*Learned how to sit up at about 5 1/2 months
*Went from army crawling to real crawling a few days after his 6 month birthday and is UNSTOPPABLE!.
*Still rolls everywhere.
*Likes to crawl up to Scout and touch her paws.
*Still smiles at everyone!!  Is a happy, happy boy.

*Is VERY squirmy when getting his diaper changed and getting dressed.  Rolls over onto his stomach on the changing table!
*Stays with Gran 3 days a week and Miss Melissa 2 days a week.
*Still has an unpredictable nap schedule, but usually takes one long nap a day with a few small naps here and there.
*Still has the same nighttime sleep schedule.  Around 8:30p-7:00a.
*Loves to grab ALL things.  Is hard to keep still these days when I am holding him.
*Sat in a high chair for the first time at a restaurant at 6 months 1 week.  Did pretty well!

*Has almost started pulling up in his crib.  Time to lower the mattress!
*Loves his jumper-oo.  Jumps really high and laughs!
*Likes to pat the face of whoever is feeding him his last bottle before bed.
*Sticks out one arm straight forward when I walk around holding him on my hip.  It's almost like he is just waiting for something to grab!
*Still sleeps on his side or stomach.
*His silky and paci are still 2 of his favorite things.
*Favorite toys include: his teething giraffe and his toy cell phone.  Also has really started to like his song and light projector that I play when he is having a hard time falling asleep.  Still likes all toys with lights.
*Is more interested in eating books than reading them.

These 6 months have been the most fun months of my life.  Everyone who knows Lane loves him, and Kyle and I are so proud of him!  Happy half birthday Lane Austen!
