Davis at 6 Months!

Image

Davis is half of a year old! I’m not sure how that happened so quickly, but it did, and here we are….6 months later and couldn’t be better! Davis is such a HAPPY baby! I’m pretty sure the only time he’s not smiling is when he’s sleeping, and even then he probably smiling inside. He smiles, talks, laughs, and coos all of the time. Big open mouth smile and squeals all around! He just lights up every single room he’s in, and I am so very lucky to be his Mommy.

We had Davie’s 6 month well visit on the same day as Garrett’s 2 year well visit, so I will post G’s update soon!

In the meantime…here are Davis’ stats:

Height: 28″ 94th%

Weight: 15lbs 6oz 13th%

Head: 43cm 41st%

So….just like his Daddy….he is tall and thin, and we’re currently working on fattening him up.

  • He just started eating solids a few weeks ago…..Banana oatmeal seems to be his favorite, though we’re working in other fruits and vegetables. I’m thinking of doing a combination of pureed foods and Baby Led Weaning, but I get really nervous when I give him real food so for now it’s mostly pureed foods.
  • He still nurses 6 times a day and eats solids twice a day
  • He’s back and forth with his sleep. He started off as a great sleeper, then regressed, and now it’s getting better again. Usually he just wakes up and whines a little bit, but if we give him his paci he usually falls back asleep. Every once in a while I”ll have to feed him and if I do it is almost always around 4 a.m. and he’ll go right back to sleep afterwards and even though I love sleeping 7-8 straight hours I don’t mind these eyes looking up at me in the middle of the night.

  • He naps 2-3 times a day. Once about 2 hours after he wakes up for about an hour, once around noon for 2-3 hours, and sometimes again around 5:00 for about 30 min.
  • Bedtime is between 7-7:30

  • When we put him down for naps or bed he always rolls onto his left side, grabs on to his lovey and snuggles up to his silky/soft fleece blanket.
  • He’s in 6 month onesies, and 3-6 month shorts
  • He wears 6 or 9 month sleepers
  • Size 2 diapers
  • He can sit up unassisted momentarily, but very much prefers to be standing and almost always pushes up to his feet when we are sitting behind him
  • His core is super strong and he practices his push ups daily. If he had it his way he would skip the whole sitting thing and go straight to crawlingImage
  • He loves to jump, stand, bounce, and splash in the pool
  • He’d hang out in his baby bjorn all day if we’d allow it as he always wants to see the world
  • He is still teething but no teeth have popped through yet

    • He tolerates his carseat but only for short periods of time, it will be time to switch him to a bigger seat before we know it.
  • He’s recognized his big brother and is starting to take an interest in what he’s doing

  • He brings joy to everyone who lays eyes on him
  • He’s the sweetest, cutest, happiest 6 month old around and I am amazed by him every.single.day!
