But I have to remind myself that they are different kids and just because they don't meet milestones at the same time, doesn't mean ANYthing! So I refocus on what he IS doing, pray to rid myself of worry, and love my baby boy!
Yay for 6 months!! I still cannot believe we are here! I wish the baby stage would last longer (excluding the whole not sleeping part) - he is so mobile and so wiggly...he is hard to snuggle or hold much anymore. My baby is almost mobile! He is trying so hard to figure out how to move forward. He does manage to go everywhere by simply rolling though. haha. Life is a whole lot more interesting now that he doesn't stay contained to one place.
How am I growing?
Like crazy! In two months he almost gained 3 pounds and 3 inches. Still not quite to 17 lbs, he is 16 lbs and 14 oz (38th percentile) and is tall - 27 3/4 inches long (90th percentile). My tiny little man. <3
How am I sleeping?
Meh. Definite regression. He hit a growth spurt where he was eating every couple hours. Ever since then he has been off. Every time we have 2 or 3 nights of solid sleep (at least 6 hours), I think we're getting somewhere...then the next night is worse. And I don't have the patience or energy I did the first time around. Why doesn't anyone tell you how hard sleep training is when you have more than one kid?? haha. We'll get there eventually. I'm holding out hope! And, besides, it's better than two months ago. Progress is progress, right??
What's new?He is trying SO hard to crawl. And officially sitting on his own for short amounts of time. Plus we've started Baby Led Solids at meal times - kind of skipping purees. He usually gets a stick or chunk of whatever we are eating. Big enough to gnaw on. It's more about the experience and less about eating. Breastmilk will still be his number one form of nutrition for awhile. We went this route with Aelah and I've never regretted it. WAY easier than spoon feeding, a *little* less messy (at this point anyways), and it's supposed to help make kids less picky with other various benefits. He LOVES it. But it also means that I cannot eat ANY thing without him getting pretty angry. haha. Momma MUST share. :)
|His first ER visit. Fever spiked to 103. Though we didn't know it until a few days later, it was Hand, Foot, and Mouth. By the end of the week, we all had it. It. Was. Rough. But Obi handled it with style - barely knew he was sick after this...|
