It’s our sweet little babe’s HALF BIRTHDAY! 🎉
Woah woah woah – time needs to sloooow down! I can’t believe it’s been six months (yes, I will say that every month). This past month has been amazing. After a rough patch during the previous month, I am so happy to say that things have turned around not just for the better.. but for the best! Henry is currently off ALL of his reflux meds and is the happiest little guy who hands out smiles like they’re goin’ out of style. Here’s what else has been going on:
Weighing in at 17.9 lbs & 26.5 inches
Sleeping 10-11 hours per night
Sprouted TWO teeth (& possibly working on a couple more), sitting up by himself, trying to get the hang of crawling, blowing raspberries & using a sippy cup to drink water
FOOD (no surprise there!), music, sitting in the high chair
Sitting still! This kid always wants to be moving!
Looking Forward To:
I’m ready to freeze time where we are, kthx.
As far as a sleep update, I’m so happy to report that The Happy Sleeper book/method has worked for us! Henry isn’t waking up in the middle of the night anymore. We still have some early mornings and fussing at bedtime here & there, but I’ll take those over a 3am wakeup call any day!
We’ve been given the go ahead to start introducing mixed solids and proteins so I spent this past Sunday in the kitchen making Henry some savory combinations for dinnertime (chicken, apple & sweet potato and chicken, apple & avocado), and some fruit purees for breakfast. I’ve been considering mixing in some baby led weaning (BLW) finger foods. If anyone has experience with this or some great puree recipes, please let me know.
If you guys have any questions or advice for our new parenthood life, please leave them below!
