Fisher is 6 Months!

Fisher is 6 months! Seriously? Half a year, already? Geez...

We had his 6 month check yesterday and his current stats are:

  • 17 lbs & 7.4 oz - He's just slightly over 5oth percentile in weight.
  • 27 in long - He jumped up to 75th percentile in height. I told Brent this will probably be the only time he's considered "tall" or he isn't taking after his daddy.

Here's what's been going on the past month:
  • He is really good at scooting himself around on his belly. He mostly turns in circles, but he is learning to move forward a bit too.
  • He loves, LOVES the pups now. We have fun chasing the dogs around and he loves letting Maeby kiss him.
  • He is sitting up really well when assisted and can even hold himself up for a few minutes on a good day.
  • He still really loves grabbing his feet. He especially pulls on them during diaper changes. 
  • His hair is slowly increasing, but is definitely lighter than it was at birth. He's actually got quite a bit now, but it all seems to be in the back and it's slowly making it's way to the front and top of his head.
  • He is still sleeping through the night great! Bedtime is around 7:15 and we are up around 7am. He's started waking up earlier, but he plays happily in his crib which is wonderful.
  • We transitioned from nursing to formula this month. I officially stopped nursing a couple weeks ago and he seems to be doing great with the formula.
  • We are eating veggies! We've introduced squash, green beans, carrots and peas. We're about to get started on some fruits as well and we still do a little rice cereal or oatmeal. It has been a  hilarious process to watch!
  • Along with the veggies, we've started using the highchair for the first time. It makes me feel like he's growing up so fast to see him in a "big boy" chair. 

Other than Halloween we haven't had any new major activities this month, but Brent and I are spending our first night away from Fisher tonight. Ah! We are doing a late anniversary celebration (now that I'm no longer nursing) and my parents are coming in town to spend the night with Fish. I'm very excited, but it will be a bit tough to leave my little man all night. I just love seeing that little face before bed and first thing in the morning. (tear)

Here are some pictures from the past month:

Until next time...
