Ever since Graham was born my mom has been telling me that 6 months is when things really start to get fun..not that the other 5 months aren't fun, but she claimed that when you reach six months you (as a parent) are much more confident, everyone is sleeping through the night, and the baby is much more interactive and predictable. At the time we were having this conversation I remember thinking.."are you kidding me...6 months is sooo far away. I don't know if we are going to make it past this week much less 6 months!"
Well we did make it through that week and 23 other weeks and here we are 6 months down the road. I must admit that (as usual) my mom was right. Six months is a lot of fun!
This month Graham started eating rice cereal once a day mainly to get him used to eating with a spoon, but he seems to really like it. For the most part he is still a good sleeper...he sleeps on average 10 hours at night and takes two 1-2 hours naps. He can roll both ways and is getting pretty fast (he rolled off the bed this week...oops!). He weighs 18 pounds 1 oz (75%) and is 27 3/4 inches long (90%). He is a curious little guy and we enjoy watching him make new discoveries. Can't wait to see what the 7th month has in store.
His current schedule:
6:00-6:30 Wake Up
8:45-10:30 Nap 1
11:00 Eat (1/2 jar baby food and 6 oz bottle)
1:00-3:00 Nap 2
3:00 Bottle (6 oz)
9:45 Dream Feed
