Sweet Axl turned 6 months old last week (1-26-12)! I'm just getting around to posting due to the passing of Jared's sweet grandma this past Sunday. It's been a bitter sweet week around here. I'll post all about Jared's grandma soon but for now I'll stick with our little six month old!
Height: 26 1/2 inches Weight: 19 lbs 3.5 ounces of rolly pollyness! :) Food: All kinds of stuff! Carrots, sweet potatoes, squash, green beans, peas, rice cereal, bananas and some meat. He loves it all! Formula -Enfamil A.R. for babies who Spit (about 4-6 ounces every 3 or 4 hours). Sleep: Wow! Sleeping has been something else lately! He usually goes to sleep around 7:30 for the night. But then, he has been waking a few times each night and not going back to sleep until he gets a bottle or just wants to stay awake for a bit! What the flip? lol! However, the past couple of nights he seems to be sleeping much better and slept until 6:15 and then last night 4:15. Much better than waking 2 or 3 times a night! It's time to get out of the nap nanny and into the crib but he's so spoiled to it! I've got a feeling i'm going to be one tired momma this next week trying to break him in! ;) Clothes: 9-12 months size 3 shoes New stuff: sitting up on his own pretty good he still needs something behind him because sometimes he likes to swing back all the sudden! Pulls to standing! He loves to stand! Still wobbly but sometimes he can balance himself for a couple of seconds without support! He is scooting around a little when on belly. He's not too big of a fan of tummy time though. This is exactly how spicer was. He gets pretty frustrated when he is trying to get a toy and can't! He looks like a sky diver a lot of the time! lol! Sometimes it sounds like he's saying mama when he's upset! Favorites: He loves big sister! He enjoys Praise Baby and Baby Einstein. Loves his swing! He likes his exersaucer and sit and play. He has started going for toys during tummy time. He can roll from back to belly. He has rolled from belly to back but nothing consistent. He's just pretty darn easy to please! Such a laid back boy! He loves to squeal! and we love hearing him squeal! Oh and he loves loves loves giving open mouth kisses on the cheek! Mommy loves this too! so so sweet! He's rather stand than do anything else!
*We had a good check up this month. Dr. Jon always says how social and happy he is! He always says how social he will be as a child! Dr. Jon is referring us to a physical therapist to help stretch out his neck. He tends to hold it to one side (a result of sleeping the same way every night in the nap nanny, another reason we must bid farewell to our good friend). Other than that we'll go to children's in april to have his bump scanned to know for sure what it is. Not looking forward to that. He will need to be sedated. God is good. He is faithful. and I know he'll take care of it!
Thank you Jesus for a happy healthy baby boy! We adore you Axl Joe! :) You just fit right in with us!
