We weighed B in at 15 pounds, 11 ounces and 26-1/4". I'm not sure where that puts him percentiles-wise, but we'll find out this week at his appointment and I'll update this post (plus they always measure him longer at the doctor's). I'm guessing about the same as last month. <25% weight, >50% height.
[UPDATED: So I need to go back to math class because he weighed in 1/2 a pound lighter, a week later. Typically my weight measurement and the doctor's office is about the same. At home we hold him and step on the scale, then subtract our own weight. His current weight is 15 lbs 5 oz (12%) and height is 26.5" (50%). He has slowed down in his growth, but the doctor wasn't concerned and said it's normal for this age. And here I thought he was getting so chubby!]
He wears size 1-2 diapers, and is starting to get too tall for some of his clothes. He mostly wears 3-6, 6 months, and some of his 0-3 month onesies still are fine.
This last month he went on his first hike (in the form of sleeping).
He got a new toy, a walker! At first (he couldn't even touch the ground) he could only scoot backwards but has since learned to go forwards and maneuver around the kitchen.
He does get stuck from time to time.
He has become fascinated with his hands and is often just looking at them and flipping them from front to back. Who needs toys, right? Hands are cool.
He has started to sit up like a big boy.
He enjoys his stroller and at one point we took a loop around the hospital he was born at. Can't believe that was 6 months ago.
He did his first pull-up. Assisted.
We're thinking he's more serious about teething, poor guy. He has outdone himself in the slobber department and has even been getting a rash in his neck rolls. He's been biting and getting frustrated. It's really sad! Our poor little slobatron.
We have been Google Hanging Out with my mom. I'm not sure what he thinks about it, but he seems to be quite interested in the computer screen.
He has been sleeping in his crib for a majority of the nights now. It's bittersweet, really. I miss him. I have this rule where if he wakes up and it's after 4am then he comes to snuggle. :) [Or if I wake up and it's after 4am then he comes to snuggle. Or if we have visitors. Or any other reason I can think of.]
The transition to the crib was simple. I think we had braced ourselves for weeks of horrific sleep training, but none of that ever happened. He's been off acid reflux meds for a couple of months now. I think he's grown out of his tummy troubles which has contributed to the smooth transition. His longest stretch was 7 hours, but we usually get about 5 hour stretches.
^^This morning. Ben snapped it.
He watched his first episode of Barney and seemed to like it. Yeah, Barney. What do kids watch these days? I only know what my brothers watched. Plus I still have them all memorized.
(Barney can be your friend too if you just make believe him.)
We love our little boy and are unbelievably happy that he is forever ours!!
