6 months of awesome

Friday, May 30, 2014



well guys.
it's official.
my baby is 6 months old.


this chunky boy is so much fun.
being a mom is exhausting but totally rad.
does anyone say 'rad' anymore?
whatevs, i do.



david and i are eating up every minute.
and lucas is eating practically every minute.
i mean, look at those cheeks!



david's parents were in town last weekend and we had a blast.
lucas put up with our antics. 
he's cool like that.


here are some fun (for me) facts about our little tank:

weight/height - 19 lbs and 28 inches (hence the 'tank' nickname). he's one healthy boy. 

sleeping - he's still waking up about once at night. usually somewhere between 2:30 and 4:30am. 
he'll eat and then go right back to sleep till around 6am. it's not ideal. i mean, i'd love to have a full night sleep again. but hey, it's better than getting up every 2-3 hours so we'll take it.



our little nugget isn't much of a napper either. 
he has about 4 naps each day averaging at about 30-40 minutes a piece.
just long enough for me to run downstairs, grab a snack and head back up again.
i've given up wishing he'd nap for hours like other babes. 
this is his normal and we're happy he's happy.



eating - pediatrician just cleared us to start trying more solids but he is having none of it. 
no cereal. no bananas. no carrots. sweet potatoes. zucchini. etc.
he just spits them out and/or clenches his jaw shut so you can't get anything in.
whatever's in front of him will be squished to smithereens but he has no interest in putting it in his mouth.



new things - he sprouted his first two teeth (bottom) about 2 weeks ago and we were floored. other than being a bit more clingy and not napping at all he was totally fine. 
he also rolled over from back to front for the first time. he hasn't been interested in rolling over so this was a big deal. 
he is sitting up by himself all the time now and still LOVES his extrasaucer.


likes - being outside
being held
bouncing
dogs
his rattle and teether (we have favs/substitutes will not do)
his bumblebee
being swaddled...still

dislikes - being wet/hungry/tired
being in one spot too long
'normal food'
being hot


nicknames - chubba, chunga munga, honey bunny, chungie; suga' (we need help, haha)

the best 6 months of my life. 
as exhausted and weary as i have felt, being his mom is one of the best things that's ever happened to me.
he's awesome. 




***
