6 Months

Happy Half Birthday to my baby boys!!!
Logan and Nathan are 6 months old today! How has half a year passed by so quickly? My bitty babies aren't so bitty anymore.

Logan
18 lbs., 8 3/4 oz. - 75th percentile
28 inches long - 90th percentile
44 cm. head circumference - 50th percentile
  • He is finally interested in kicking, grabbing, and rolling over more. He's been able to do these things, but not very motivated.
  • He likes to make big sweet smiles.
  • He's been accused of being a flirt.
  • He eats green beans, carrots, sweet potatoes, applesauce, bananas, peaches, and rice. Carrots and applesauce are his favorites.
  • He still sleeps all night and usually wakes after 7:15 for his first meal.
  • He's still easy-going.
  • He hates having his boogers sucked from his nose, which has become a regular chore with him being sick the last few days.
  • He resists being held in any kind of "sleep position". Because of this, he fusses himself to sleep in his bed. It usually only takes 2 minutes, then he's out.
  • He loves watching Baby Einstein.
  • He wears size 3 diapers and size 6-9 month clothes.
  • He's chewing on everything, including his fingers and anything else he can grab.
  • He's relented to the fact that he has to ride in a car seat. He still resists some, but usually falls asleep or finds contentment pretty quickly.
  • He has his first eye infection and is fighting the effects of bad allergies.
  • He is happy playing in his jumperoo and on his activity mat.
  • Dr. Hassel says he's 'perfect' and 'so cute'. :-)
  • He's our chubby monkey, a complete joy, and we love him so much!!!
Nathan
18 lbs., 6 1/4 oz. - 75th percentile
27 1/4 inches long - 75th percentile
44 cm. head circumference - 50th percentile
  • He's Mr. Rolly Polly.
  • He grabs and chews everything.
  • He smiles and laughs big and often!
  • He loves to grab his feet.
  • He enjoys his exersaucer and other toys a lot.
  • He had his first ear infection a few weeks ago.
  • He eats all of the same foods that Logan eats. His favorites are also carrots and applesauce. He really likes bananas, too.
  • He wears size 3 diapers and size 6-9 month clothes.
  • He will rock to sleep, but he can just be laid down to sleep in his bed, too.
  • He is starting to sit up.
  • He acts shocked with huge eyes every time he sees his Mamaw.
  • He likes watching Baby Einstein.
  • He still sleeps all night and usually wakes between 5-6 for his first meal. He goes right back to sleep after that early feeding.
  • He gets super excited and happy. He kicks his feet really hard and flails his arms. It's really cute and funny.
  • Dr. Hassel says that he's 'perfect' and 'so cute', too.
  • He's spunky, fun, and loved so much!
