this post is a little overdue ... Mason turned 6 months this past Saturday, but better late than never, right?
Last Friday we took Mason to the doctor's for his 6 month wellness visit (and shots). We were pleased to hear that our little man is doing well and is super healthy.
After taking his measurements we found his percentages and thought it was amusing that his height is at 100% (28.5 inches) and his weight is at 85% (19 pounds, 8 ounces). He's definitely "slimmed down" this past month and has a more lean look.
Mason has now said "mama" numerous times and has yet to say "dada" ... sorry Ryan. Other sounds he's made are "baba" and AHHHHH (baby noise).
He can sit up on his own and likes to play in his pack n play with his toys. This has been a huge relief since I can't carry him on my own (wrist is still in recovery).
He also decided on his 6 month birthday that he was going to crawl. So he's definitely mobile now and has a floor full of pillows and blankets to play on (and to help with any spills and falls).
He's a huge goofball and I find myself laughing at his expressions all day long. Clearly I don't get out as much anymore if I find everything my 6 month old does hysterical.
He's still eating oatmeal twice a day and we were very excited to start other solids the day after he turned 6 months old (updates will come in the 7 month post). I'm still breastfeeding and we're down to 5 or 6 times a day. He looks like a giant while he's laying across me so I'm not sure how much longer I'll last with the whole breastfeeding thing.
The past couple of weeks he's been sleeping mostly through the night ... bedtime around 7:30-7:45pm and sleeping until 6:00-6:15am. I'll take it!
Taking his monthly pictures is a little more difficult ... there were a lot of "almost falling out of the chair" moments. Oh and taping a tie onto his shirt was not a good idea. He clearly mastered the art of ripping it off and putting it directly into his mouth.
