I’m a little late, since Ansel hit 6 months a week ago, but frankly, I feel lucky when I show up to work on time, so. . . I’m not gonna freak out about missing a self imposed deadline. And the kid is still 6 months old, so it’s not a lie or anything!
Here are a few facts about Ansel at 6 months:
*18lbs 6oz, 26.5 inches, putting him in the 75th percentile for both height and weight.
*LOVES: Hilda the baby bulldog, gnawing on chicken and steak, milk, Sophie le giraffe, the hemp diapers (which he snuggles like a lovey), howling and crowing and squeeling, the mirror on his baby piano, talking to Oma on Facebook, being an airplane and food flying towards him like an airplane
*HATES: napping for more than 15 minutes, getting ready for bed.
*He can roll from back to front and front to back, but most of the time can’t be bothered to roll over.
*He can sit up completely unassisted. So confidently we can leave the room with him sitting and know he won’t fall over and crash.
*He is inch worming, reaching with his tail and starting to get ready to army crawl. Given how fast these things have appeared, I think he’ll be mobile pretty soon.
*He is grabbing everything with accuracy and speed and putting it directly into his mouth.
*foods tried: squash, sweet potato, steak, chicken, yogurt, pickles, French fries, carrot, Apple, banana, strawberry, pancakes, crepes (and probably some I forgot)
No teeth, lots of hair, still so smiley.
We transitioned him into the zipadeezip from the woombie and tomorrow we are going to see how he sleeps in his crib in his room. If he does the same or worse, he’ll be back in the cosleeper (or a pack n play, since he’s really getting too big for the cosleeper) but if he does better, he’ll be in his room. I’m having feelings about it but I actually have an inkling he’ll sleep better in his own room.
And now, without further adieu:
