6 Months Old!!!

Look how far we’ve come!!

Today, as of 6:37 am, Mason is 6 whole months old. 6 months!! That’s just amazing to me. We survived! We’re both in one piece! He’s thriving! I occasionally sleep! Woohoo!!!

In the last month:

  • His Jumperoo has become his favorite spot to be
  • It’s his favorite thing to do at daycare too
  • He wears mostly 6-9 month clothing but still can fit into some 3-6 month
  • He’s still in size 2 diapers (a week in size 2-3 resulted in way more poopy laundry than anyone wanted to deal with!)
  • Developed an awful cough (that he still has!!) and had his first x-ray
  • Is still riding in his car seat on his stroller, even though every week we swear we’re going to get the straps adjusted in the stroller (de ja vu anyone?? *blush*)
  • Went on his first “Mommy and Me” picnic
  • He’s still not sitting up for more than a few seconds unsupported, but we’re working on it!
  • His feet are still VEEERRRYYY interesting
  • We’ve introduced (and in some cases reintroduced) him to some of his harder plastic toys. So far he hasn’t maimed himself with them.
  • Loves to laugh when the other babies at daycare cry (Future bully? Eh oh!!)
  • Can roll from his tummy to his back and his back to his tummy like a pro but really hasn’t used this to his advantage very much
  • Sometimes only takes one nap at daycare. Those evenings are rough
  • Is getting much better at grasping things and picking them up. Including things he shouldn’t, like CDs. Oops.
  • Has perfected the “Arch my back and wail” drama routine when you put him somewhere he’d rather not be (MamaRoo or his vibrating chair usually)
  • Had another sleepover at Grandma B’s and got to hang out at the cafe with Grandma J.
  • Is still totally smitten with Daddy and the dogs.

His 6 month doctor’s appointment isn’t until next week, but I’m GUESSING he’s close to 17 pounds now. Go go power Mommy Milk!! (But really, he can stop growing any time now – I’m sick of this “Cram him in this kind of small outfit so he can at least wear it ONCE” thing that we keep having to do!)

Stay tuned for his 6 month pictures tonight!!

    Aww, yay Mason – happy 6 month-day! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I really loved my Jumperoo, too, but now I’d rather be free to run on my own. Are you going to try solid food soon?

    Happy half birthday lovie!

    I know how you feel about the clothes. Pie has had more things than I would like to count that she had outgrown by the time I had washed them and got them ready to wear. So frustrating!

    This is too weird- I have the same little Irish outfit and honestly, I looked at that picture and did a double take. It looks like my little guy! In that same position and everything. No hair, big blue eyes ๐Ÿ™‚

    And I hear ya on the growing thing- I’ve had to buy Niall new clothes every single month for the last 10 months!

    I have three boys, and have passed down every stitch of clothing that wasn’t ruined. There are STILL things that have never been worn, because the boys grow too darn fast.
