6 Months

On Wednesday, Hudson turned six months old.  How can a half a year have passed since he was born?

Six Month Stats:
Height:    26.5 " (75th percentile)
Weight:    14 lbs. 7 ounces (15th percentile)
Head Circumference:  43 cm (50th percentile)

Dr. Bubba said that he expects him to be long and lean (He most definitely didn't get that from me...I'm short and squatty!) He is getting close to doubling his birth weight and I am ready for that day. All his teachers at school and in the nursery at church talk about how little he is. He had 2 shots and some medicine drops at his Dr. visit. We can't wait for his 9 month visit because he won't get shots! His temperament is the best- He is so smiley and happy. He has had his 5th ear infection this month. I am hoping I am not beginning to see a trend here.

Hudson, what have you been up to this month?
*You love your excersaucer. You are figuring out all the little toys. You are also starting to put your feet down and push to standing when you are in it.
*You are working really hard at sitting. Each day you get a little stronger and we are hoping that soon you will be sitting on your own. (Don't be fooled by the picture above, he was sitting by himself but fell over right after I snapped the shot). I talked to the Dr. about your strength and he said that you were just fine and would do things when you were good and ready. I have noticed that you seem so content just to sit back and watch the world go by-you are super laid back. I have a feeling that you will do everything a little late just because you don't want to.

*You are starting to put everything in your mouth: toys, hands, feet, and "Bob". I think your favorite thing is a burpcloth. You like your monkey lovie, but you would much rather have a burpcloth to chew on (and it's not even the nice burpcloths, it's the cheap thin ones with a few stains on them-go figure.)

*You are quite the little piggy pig. You have eaten sweet potatoes, green beans, bananas, apples, pears, peaches, squash, carrots, prunes, rice cereal, and sweet peas and you love them all! You can finish off a jar of baby food in just a few seconds. Dr. Bubba gave us the go ahead to start giving you pizza crust and breadsticks or large pieces of food you can gnaw on. Then after you get the hang of that you can have small pieces of table food. Life is about to get yummy Hudson!
Stop growing so fast. Thanks!
Love, Mommy
