Has it been a month already? Sheesh.
Just kidding, sort of. As you can see, his hair has definitely gotten longer! It’s craziness. And the back? I could braid it! Hubs is against cutting it though so… ya. I’ll just keep telling him that “so and so” thought he was a girl (which happens ALL THE TIME) and maybe he’ll get tired of hearing it and decide it’s time for Peanut to get a haircut. As of right now, Hubs says we will discuss it on the day before his first day of Kindergarten…….
Let’s compare hair… this is at six months:
We got lucky with this little nugget on many fronts, but I have to point out that we got extra lucky with this guy as far as his car seat. I know quite a few people with kids who just DO NOT like their car seat (sorry @onpinsandneedlesnc). Peanut doesn’t have any adversities to his car seat at all. We have been on quite a few road trips already and he is just a little angel!
I sit with him in the back until he’s asleep and then I move on up to the front seat.
He is sitting up really well on his own now. When he gets really excited he will throw himself backwards though, so I don’t leave him “alone” unless he’s on the bed or in his crib/playpen aka somewhere soft. (“Alone” meaning I’m not right next to him, but I can see him and am only a couple of feet away.) He is a rolling little guy too. I have to be careful with that! I literally have to watch him at all times because he will keep on rolling, not realizing the bed ends at some point – ha!
He still doesn’t have any teeth, but he does likes to chew on things. I’m sure he’ll have a tooth pop up sooner or later – hopefully…
He is also doing a lot better at standing. I got him a “Sit and Stand” toy and he does really well with holding on and standing upright. He tried to move forward once but the wheels were set on the wrong setting, he went too fast, and I had to catch him. He’s got the right motion though – one foot ahead of the other. :]
He is still sleeping really great – it just freaks me out that he sleeps on his face. He’s also started balling up his blanket in his hands and holding it to his face. It’s cute – like a security blanket type of thing – but I’m too worried that he can’t breathe or something so I always move his hand.
He’s also still really loving bath time. It’s been way too hot to take him to the pool so that was kind of a bummer over the Summer. I think he would have really liked that.
1. He is successfully napping in his crib during the day.
2. It’s his parents’ fault that he is still in a play pen in our room overnight.
3. He started getting (pureed) meats and he LOVES them.
4. He now dances, and it’s the cutest thing ever.
5. He really likes dogs.
6. He has such a great bond with his dad. It honestly warms my heart.
7. He WILL kick and punch you – out of love.
(If you remember from this post, he head-butted me and gave me a canker sore. It was ALMOST healed as of yesterday, but then he decided to kick me in the lip RIGHT where my canker sore is… I bled pretty good. Stinker.)
8. He is almost holding his own bottles now!
