Can you believe he is already 6 months old! It's gone by so fast and he is getting so big. It doesn't help that he's the size of a 1 year old ;) We are just so in love with him and he fits into our family so well. It's been quite the adjustment but we have finally settled into a routine and our days are getting a bit less hectic. He still isn't sleeping well at night which is wearing me out but hopefully that will change soon. I do love the cuddles! He is becoming quite the goofy guy and loves to make us laugh. He makes a lot of funny faces and now that he is starting to "play" is getting really fun! He is loving real food and BLW. He is so much happier at meal times now that he gets to eat with us. Makes family dinner time a bit easier, while being harder at the same time! He also has 7 teeth!! Yes, 7! The triplets got teeth early too (at least we thought so,) but this seems crazy! Their first teeth came in around 6 months. His 8th will be here in the next few days too. At the moment he has 4 on top and 3 on the bottom. You can really see them in the second picture :)
Weight and Length: He is a whopping 20 pounds 3 oz. and 29 inches! So we have a monster baby, I just went back to compare to the triplets and he is their 1 year length and 9 month weight!
Eating: He is a hungry guy, and still nurses about every 2.5 to 3 hours. He still cluster feeds before bed and wakes twice usually to eat. We started BLW this week and he is loving it! We started with avocado just like with the triplets and he took right to it! Since then we have also tried banana, broccoli, and carrots. Those have gone over well too!
Sleep: Thankfully, he is a great napper so far. He has dropped the third nap recently which I was hoping would help the nighttime but nope. His morning nap is around 1-1.5 hours and is often in the carrier since we are out and about. The afternoon nap is along with the triplets at 12:30 or 1 until 3. He goes down for the night around 7:30 or 8 and is up around 7. He wakes twice a night usually around 12 and 4. Every now and then it's only once. We are still working on sleeping through the night :)
Clothes Sizes: He is in all 9-12 month clothes. 9 months still fits, but it's getting small and 12 month is perfect now. He still wears our favorite 9 month stuff but i've moved most of the 12 month sizes in now.
Favorite Things: Baths are still great. He also loves to watch the other three run around. They make him laugh so much. He is definitely turning into a mama's boy and loves to cuddle and hang on me.
Least Favorite Things: He is getting better with diaper changes, although he is very squirmy! He doesn't like when his siblings are around. He looks for them when he wakes up from his nap. You can tell he's sad if he is up first!
Milestones: He is so close to crawling! He gets up on all fours and rocks and he can move his legs but hasn't quite got the arms down yet. He scoots a bit too. He can sit up on his own which he is so happy about. He loves to sit and watch with the triplets are doing. He is still "talking" and babbling all the time!
