Hey little guy! This month has been a lot like the others you’ve experienced – it’s flown by! You experienced your very first big holiday, Thanksgiving, and were a champ the whole time! You snoozed on and off throughout the day and watched your very first Macy’s Day Thanksgiving Day parade with your dad and Grant while I was off running the turkey trot. The day before Thanksgiving, Mimi actually discovered your very first tooth! Just a couple of days after, your second tooth came in as well, so now you have both bottom chompers! Your toothy little smile is pretty adorable!
You are completely obsessed with your little feet these days. Whether you are in your car seat, on the changing table, or hanging on your playmat, those toes are in your mouth. I’m pretty sure it is my favorite little trick of yours! You are working hard on sitting up unassisted, but you just aren’t there quiet yet. I’m sure you will be there in just a couple of weeks, if not sooner. You weigh 15 pounds now and the pediatrician says you are perfect. You are on the smaller size in terms of weight, but you are pretty long in length! You are definitely taking after your daddy in so many ways.
We introduced some solids at the very end of your 5th month, right before your 6 month birthday. So far, you’ve eaten sweet potatoes, hummus, peas, avocado, and yogurt. You LOVE the yogurt and hummus, and can just tolerate the others. We are really just in explore mode at the moment with food, and you seem to really enjoy it.
You are still breastfeeding like a champ and it is such a nice time we spend together. Although, your brother does like to hand out with us in the chair sometimes while you are eating, and you think that is pretty funny. You will take a few sips, laugh at him, and then get back on the boob. The two of you are already quite the pair!
Davis, are rocking your 6 month clothes and are still in size 2 diapers. You are grabbing for anything and everything right now, especially my hair! You love taking a huge handful and giving it a good tug – its definitely not my favorite 😉 Rattles seem to be a lot of fun for you, as well as taggie blankets. I’m pretty sure you would spend all day in your bouncer if we let you – it gives you the best view of the house, for sure!
You are still an amazing sleeper, taking 3 naps a day, ranging anywhere from 1-3 hours at a time. You pretty much just sleep for as long as you need to, and then wake up super happy, just babbling away. Nighttime is pretty similar, as you love 12-14 hours of straight shut eye a night. Thank you for being such an amazing sleeper! We are all so incredibly thankful!
Your best friend these days seems to Winnie B! Any time she walks by, your eyes are absolutely glued to her. You will just watch her every move, and pet her ears and back whenever we hold you close to her. She gives you big kisses and it doesn’t even phase you. I’m pretty sure you want her to do it more!
The next month is going to be the absolute best! We have both Christmas and a new year to look forward to, with lots of celebrating with family and friends. I can’t wait to experience every minute with our little family. It’s going to be amazing!
