Noah - 6 Months

*Please excuse my long absence of blogging. I kept meaning to get posts up but just never got around to it. It happens.

Weight - 17.4 lbs

Height - 26.5 in

Appearance -You got your third tooth on Sunday, October 13. It is on the upper left side and will be the one next to your front teeth. Your hair is just crazy. Very light and fluffy and turning blond.

Eating - You nurse every 2-3 hours. If you are not screaming hungry and we are in public, you are so easily distracted! We finally let you try a couple of people foods and you LOVED them. It was all very random so you would get a bite or two and then not have anything else for a few days. You did enjoy bananas the most.

Sleeping - The same as before. You sleep from around 8 or 9pm - 7am usually waking up once, sometimes twice to eat. Naps are sporadic and are usually short cat naps. Mommy would like to get you on a schedule or at least longer naps but with being in and out of the house all day, it's so hard. BUT, even with only short naps you are always happy so I don't mind very much.

Sizes - I am squeezing you into the last of your size 2 diapers and will buy size 3 next time. You wear 6 month clothes and even a few larger sizes.

Nothing is safe anymore, not even the fridge!
Milestones - Crawling and sitting!!! If I didn't see it with my own eyes, I wouldn't believe it. You didn't even do the normal sitting then hands and knees to rocking. You just took off and sat yourself up! You started out doing a funny bunny hop with your legs where you would literally "hop" them underneath you. And now you bear crawl. You learned that your knees are slippery and your toes get better traction so you crawl on just your hands and feet most of the time.

Getting your third tooth.

You have also accumulated quite a few bumps and bruises already! Learning to crawl on hardwood floor is tough for a little guy.

Doing your funky bear crawl.

 Likes - crawling and getting anything in your reach, tasting any food you're allowed, taking a bath, chewing on everything, watching Alena and Christian play, people watching
Dislikes - getting stuck or falling while trying to crawl, when you have a dirty diaper, waiting to eat, being put down when you are tired (you like to be held or nursed to sleep)

Noah, how can you be halfway to year already?!? You are just so amazing and I think we hit the baby jackpot with you. Alena and Christian are quite smitten with you and love to hold you whenever they get a chance. You are so incredibly happy and easy to please. We love you so much and can't wait to see what you do this next month!
