Matthew William ~ 6 Months

 


Weight/length: We had Matt's 6 month appointment last Tuesday and he was 21.15 pounds and 29.5 inches, he's in the 98 percentile for both height and weight! 
 
Sleep: We finally had an "almost" full nights sleep when Matt hit 6 months. November 6 was the lucky night! It's been pretty consistent since then. He's been going down to bed around 7:30 and falls asleep easily - which is a change. He struggled putting himself to sleep for some time. His naps have gotten more consistent and longer - everyone told me this would happen around 6 months and it did! He pretty much puts himself on a schedule. 9am nap, 1:00pm nap, and a power nap around 5pm.

Health: Still very very healthy and strong!

Clothes: We're in 12-18 for sure and now I'm buying 18-24 so that he doesn't grow out of them so quickly! 
 
 
Diet: We started solids about 10 days before he turned 6 months. His first solid was a little apple sauce his daddy gave him while he was eating and he loved it. Then we tried sweet potatoes, apricots/apples, prunes, peas, avocado, and bananas. So far he's loved all of it and has taken to solids very well. He's our little eater :) Still breastfeeding and taking the bottle most of the time.
 
 

Baby Gear/Accessories: We put Matt in the "big boy" stroller the BOB and he loves it. Todd was eager to try it and I was a little more hesitant...maybe because it was a reality that he was getting older...haha! When we did put him in it he was so happy! I'm glad he likes it because I plan on getting back into jogging and it's a great stroller for that.
 
We broke down and bought the ugly plastic play thing that every baby loves. I didn't want this big plastic thing in the house, but of course he loves it! It makes it so I can get a few things done around the house without Mac licking his face :) We got the Delta Activity Center, I would recommend this one.
 

  Development: Matt is pretty much sitting up. He sits up for a few minutes and then sort of falls forward and then rolls to his side. He loves sitting up and grabbing toys - lots of grabbing and putting things in his mouth. When he rolls onto his tummy he's now pushing his bottom up and scooting in a circle, no forward movement yet - but, it won't be long! He's getting much stronger on his tummy and I can see crawling coming soon - - eeekkk! 
He's obsessed with his hands and feet. We love when he does the "motorcyle" as we call it. He makes little fists and then sort of moves them like he's driving a motorcycle :) He's always happy when he has his feet in his mouth - very flexible!
 
Crying: He doesn't cry very much, just when he's tired, and now he tends to sort of whine when he wants something.
 
Adventures: October was a relaxing month for us. We enjoyed taking Matt to a local pumpkin patch, hanging with friends, and enjoying San Rafael. Matt celebrated his first Halloween as a bumble bee! I also spent a few days down in Santa Cruz with his Nonnie and Papa :)
 


 
Likes: He loves when his Daddy gets home after work, I always know there's a smile waiting. He enjoys silly faces and noises, playing on the floor with all of his toys and pulling Mac's hair, going for walks, being outside, and eating!
 

GIANTS WON THE WORLD SERIES!


 Postpartum/Mommy feeling: I'm still in shock that he's 6 months old. It feels like yesterday that I was pregnant. So many changes have taken place over the past few weeks - 6 months is a really fun age! He's become so alert and is my little buddy. I'm really looking forward to the next 6 months :)
