6 months old!

Will, you are 6 months old today! I cannot believe half a year has already gone by since you were born--time is flying!

You are no longer on any medicine for your reflux and laryngomalacia. You are wearing 6-9 month and 6-12 month clothing--and it mostly fits:-) You wear a size 3 diaper. You take 2-3 naps a day--always swaddled. However, your daddy has started calling you Houdini because you have been kicking your legs out from the swaddle blanket. You have finally started sleeping more at night-the last few nights you have only woken up at 4-4:30 to eat.

You started baby food about 3 weeks ago--you have tried all the fruits and cereals, and most of the veggies. You really like sweet potatoes and carrots but really don't like peas:-) You have finally figured out how to eat from a spoon without spitting all of it out on your bib.

You have been drooling a ton the past month--I have bought you several teethers and you enjoy chewing on the a little bit but you mostly like your hands.

I have really been trying the past few weeks to get you on a better schedule--you are usually up by 7:30 and down for your first nap between 9 and 9:30. Your next nap is usually around 1 pm unless you sleep later in your 1st one. Then you may have another nap between 4 and 5pm, which only lasts 45 minutes to 1 hour. Then it's bedtime between 7 and 8pm.

You still do not roll over, mainly because you absolutely hate to be on your stomach. Lately if I put you on it you pull your legs underneath you, so you might crawl before you roll over:-) You are really enjoying your jumping gym.

You LOVE hearing your brothers and sister and your face lights up whenever they come around you--you always have a smile for them, even if 1 second before you were fussing.

We love you so much and are amazed at how fast this time has gone with you. We look forward to many more fun months ahead.
