As with each month, I’m more amazed at how much you learn, grow and change. You’ve been scooting around on your tummy for some time, but now you can get up on all 4’s and are so close to becoming a crawler. You rock back and forth and we can see your little wheels turning, it won’t be long!
We started you on solids and you’re a little hesitant with them. So far butternut squash, sweet potatoes and green beans mixed with rice cereal have been the winners. At your 6 month check up the pedi thought your gums looked puffy and we’d see some teeth soon, but they haven’t shown up yet. We keep practicing brushing those gums though! You love cups and always ask to have a drink out of mine. I sometimes give you a sip of my water and you spill it all over, but are quite pleased with yourself. That’s something new too, you’re better able to express your wants without crying, by grunting and reaching.
Our whole little family caught our first stomach bug. Dad and I felt so bad for you. You slept in mom’s arms when you weren’t getting sick, and you were just mush. You being so tiny with the dry heaves was just awful. Thankfully it ended as quickly as it started and you were back to your happy self as if it never had happened. Thank goodness!
You’ve decided naps aren’t your thing which makes your eyes look really pink and sleepy. We hope you get back to napping soon, as it gives mom, dad and daycare time to recharge. But in the meantime you seem more interested in playing and checking out this new world. At least you aren’t cranky without those naps and continue to be a decent night time sleeper. Though you can cut out those 3 AM wake up calls any time now babe.
