At six months he was busting the seams of his 6-9 month clothing, and measured 28.25 inches and weighed 19 lbs., 5 oz. Big boy, 98th percentile on height and 80th for his weight.
In the couple weeks leading up to his six month day he was sleeping like crap, and I knew it was because the little piggy was hungry but I felt like since we were so close to six months, it was worth it to wake up a couple times a night to nurse since there was definitely an end in sight. On his six month birthday he got to try green beans and loved them. I mostly followed the four days rule, but could already tell he was going to need lots of food, so also started oatmeal that weekend, and he was eating breakfast and dinner on top of his milk for awhile. But at least he started sleeping through the night again.
He's so big he can twist out of his Bumbo, so we put it away. Actually sold it
Hair started coming back in, and it's definitely lighter. I see similarities and lots of differences between these brothers. JD is definitely more fair-skinned and looks a bit more like his mama than big brother.
He loves to laugh and is super ticklish. Hates being left alone. Can sit up unassisted for quite awhile and is already getting up on all fours. He scoots a bit and can roll over to get where he wants, but no full-on crawling yet, although I know it won't be long!
We celebrated our first Thanksgiving with JD this month and it was so fun.
He also got to partake in his first Halloween. I'm typically not big on dressing up babies (Cooper was 3 before he did anything for Halloween) but since we would be getting out I caved. But went super simple, say hello to Jake from State Farm, hehehehe.
He loves his brother so much!
This guy has my heart, he's such a snuggler and sweet baby. I wish I could bottle up this perfect little phase <3
