At his 6 months apt all was well, still staying right along the 75%ile at 19lbs and 27inches my big boy obviously never misses a meal!
He has started to sit on his own very well he can lean foreword and sit back up, move his arms and grab for toys without falling over, he doesn't move though I suppose he is content where we put him and knows if he squawks well pick him up but Im fine with that he can stay put as long as he likes Im not ready for a mobile baby yet!
As previously mentioned we started solids when he turned 6 months we started with sweet potatoes...he loves them next we tried pumpkin which he loves even more. I have been making his food and I love it its so easy and I feel like he is getting the best start to his eating habits.
|first taste...not so sure|
|ok mom, your just not going fast enough|
Sleep was going ok and then we went to San Antonio two weekends in a row and all went downhill after that. So... starting yesterday I went against all I have believed up to now and did cry it out...I watched the Moms on Call 3-12months seminar and also consulted with my pediatrician and this is just what it has come to. It was to the point that he would fall asleep in our arms and as SOON as we put him down he would scream and throw a fit. He would then wake up 30 minutes to an hour after he went down go through the drama again and proceed to wake every 3-4 hours all night. That just doesn't work for us so this is the last resort. The moms on call thing claims it takes 3 days so well see. The hardest part is when he wakes up in the middle of the night to just let him cry, it breaks my heart but the man has got to get some rest as do the rest of us! I will keep ya posted on how this goes down in the end...and after that we work on nap time.
He loves to be outside if it was up to him he would be outside 24/7, he loveshis squishy football and anything that lights up. He rolled from his back to tummy once at night when he was throwing a fit but never on any other occasion.
oh and HE HAS 2 TEETH! They are the cutest little things ever!! However they are crazy sharp and the child has GOT to learn not bite or his breastfeeding days will be over!
