I know I say this every month but I really can't believe James has been here for half a year already. It is going to be no time and we're going to be celebrating his 1st birthday. These are the most precious days of my life.
Height and Weight: 17 lbs 12 oz (55%) and 26.5 inches (45%)...I'm proud to say his head is down to the 91% :) Started size 3 diapers today.
Health: Health is great. I'm proud we've made it to 6 months without any sickness! I think breast feeding has a lot to do with that. (And that he stays home with me or my parents and doesn't get out into the germy world much.)
Sleep: Sleep is awful. It got better and then got worse again. Bad, bad, bad. I am one tired Mama. We had his 6 month appt yesterday and I talked to the doctor, in combination with sleep books I've been reading, and it's time to sleep train this little one. We are going to do the Ferber method and Austin and I decided we will hold hands in bed while we do it. Poor little guy, he is going to be a mess when Mama doesn't come rescue him. But he's got to learn, I've got to stop and we've got to make some real sleep progress. He is totally on a newborn schedule (up every 3 hours) and that is NOT necessary for a 6 month old. Pray for us that we have some success and minimal tears!
found him under his crib. excellent.
Clothes: 6 month PJ's and 6-9 month outfits. He is pretty much right on track with his age and clothing size.
