I know I say this every month, but can my baby already be 6 months old? His personality is really coming out and it is so much fun to watch him grow and learn new things. Speaking of growing, he now weighs 17 1/2 pounds and is 27 1/4 inches long, half a foot taller than when he was born. When I came home from work the other day, he reached out for me to hold him. Agh! It was the best thing ever!
The Doctor said he looked perfect, except for the red bumps. Poor little guy has Hand Foot and Mouth disease. Yucky! Luckily, he doesn’t see to be bothered by the red bumps, just a bit grumpier than normal.
His favorite activity is to roll around like a mad man. This makes it interesting to change his diaper. He still loves chewing on his feet. Another milestone this month was sleeping in his own room. This was harder on me than him and let’s be honest, he ends up in our bed around 4am. Callan is also much more aware of the cats. They are also more aware of him now. One thing Callan isn’t aware of are flies on his nose.
He is eating like a champ. He loves sweet potato, squash, and prunes. His least favorite foods so far are bananas and peas. I guess he also likes paper.
We can’t wait to see what happens in the next few months.
