Can someone please tell me where the last 6 months has gone please? How is it that this little guy has already been with us for HALF A YEAR, already?! I am hoping the next 6 months don’t go as fast, I am just not prepared to see him grow up so quickly!
Everett has been following along with some of his sisters milestones, it’s neat to see how similar they are as babies and of course there are some differences too. Just this week we have perfected the art of sitting. By perfected I mean we can sit unassisted for a period of time but it usually ends with a good old face plant as we reach for a toy. We squirm and scoot on our back like crazy. But just like his big sister we do not roll. We will do the odd front to back roll but no back to front rolls. This was something we were both wondering if he would do, just because Hazel never did and well the verdicts in, we make cute babies but we don’t make rollers.
Speaking of rolls, we don’t really have much of those either! We are very low on the percentile charts for our weight, so much so that the doctor wanted me to start waking him and feeding him through the night at 4 months. We have definitely been growing and filling out since then, but still no rolls. It will be interesting to see how much we weigh tomorrow when we go in for our check up. I am still nursing him and giving him the odd bottle of pumped milk when I go out. We did start introducing some cereal and fruits and vegetables over the past two weeks. We started a bit earlier on the fruits and vegetables than his sister, but after several attempts of his to know our forks out of our hands we were like ok this guys ready to eat! I am absolutely terrified for the future, I am pretty sure I am going to have a 6 footer staring down at me and cleaning out my cupboards!
In case your wondering we are still rocking the same onsie we wore in our one month photos! Aside from the newborn clothes I have yet to pack up any of our 0-3 month stuff!! This is amazing as it means we are getting LOTS of wear out of all the stuff I have purchased and were given. And if you know me, I like to shop 😉 I have a sneaking suspicion we are going to go through what we have, lots of 0-3 and 3-6 and skip straight to 12-18 months.
And with that I will leave you with some photos from our little monthly shoot. The photos are definitely getting trickier but I am glad we are not in the rocking chair this time, this guy just moves too much!
