wesley - 6 months

wesley will be 7 months tomorrow, so i'm almost caught up... :)

stats:  wesley ended up having a dr appointment a few days before he turned 6 months, and he weighed 14 lbs 11 oz - a skinny guy!  he was still wearing 3-6 month clothes at 6 months, although we started switching out a few things like pjs with feet, because he was getting to be too tall.  he's in 12-24 month socks, he has big feet!

eating/sleeping:  wesley's bottles are still the same - 3, 5 oz bottles at daycare.  we did start on some solids a week before he turned 6 months, he was so interested in what we were doing at meal time, we thought it was time for him to try it out.  we started with some wedges of sweet potato, and i was impressed with how well he ate them.  he also had some banana, and pureed apples. he likes everything we've given him so far.

we were finally able to get wesley to nap in his crib at home on the weekends, which has been really nice and i think he sleeps better when he's in his crib (instead of in our lap, or in his swing).  he still doesn't take as long of a nap for us on the weekends as he does at daycare, but he seems happy and sleeps well at night, so we're ok with that.

milestones:  wesley started sitting up for longer periods of time unsupported, and moves a ton!  he has figured out how to get around by rotating on his stomach - he spins and spins until he's where he wants to be.  he also figured out how to get up on his hands and knees and rocks, but hasn't moved yet.  the biggest milestone of month 6 was probably his first teeth - he got 2 bottom teeth over thanksgiving.  he seemed to be really uncomfortable and was very fussy, but went back to his normal self after the teeth finally came through.

misc.:  wesley flew for his second time at thanksgiving, and did great on the plane. he also did great on our return drive from columbus to st louis.  he's been so much fun lately, he's really interested in toys and loves to play. 

we went to ted drewes to get wesley's first christmas tree.  he really liked to look at the ornaments and the lights.   

this was our christmas card photo, such a happy little guy!

He is a cutie, that is great that he's such a good eater! Ashford still fights with us and usually won't eat anything but yogurt and fruit. Ugh

I just want to hug him! He's so cute. Great times are ahead!

If you don't have one yet you should get a mesh feeder! They are awesome for things like sweet potatoes and bananas- he can hold it himself and gnaw all he wants, but it makes much less mess and prevents him from getting any too-big pieces! Love them :)

Have fun- I really like the stage you're in because he's about to become mobile and he will LOVE that!
