Happy 6 Months!
Here is a rundown of how much he has grown in the last month:
--reflux is better. Still there, but better
--milk intolerance is slightly better. He still spits up, but not as much.
--he is a great traveler and only cried when we were in bumper to bumper traffic in Chicago while we were traveling.
--He took his first vacation and it was to Green Bay, Wisconsin. He toured Lambeau Field and learned that he was almost named after Aaron Rodgers.
--He met several great aunts and uncles in Green Bay
--He is learning to sit up. He can sit up supported and I think he will be able to sit up for longer and by himself shortly.
--He loves the teething "mama bling" that I wear around my necklace as a pendant.
--He recognizes his name when someone other than Mama or Daddy call him by name.
--He is very comfortable with his Godparents and will readily go to them.
--He started solids and so far so good. He likes them all. His doctor wanted him to gain two pounds while we were away. I hope he will be able to do it! We see her on Monday
--He loves when we sing to him.
--He loves to be held.
--He is stubborn and comes by it honestly. I think he was given a double dose of that character trait as both his mama and his daddy are very stubborn.
--He will fight sleep if he thinks that something better is going on.
--He's still not sleeping through the night, but he's at least sleeping a little longer. I'll take what I can get at this point.
--He loves having his picture taken.
--He's trying to talk and is starting to gurgle at us with purpose.
--He met some of his Filipino relatives
--He is starting to nap and go to bed in his crib instead of the cosleeper. He still winds up in the co-sleeper in the middle of the night after his feeding. But he's doing better.
