6 Month Review – in photos

Wow, I have been a horrible blogger…I don’t think I can even call myself a blogger anymore.

Here’s a quick recap, in pictures, of what we’ve been up to this month.

We helped my brother move...Isaac really cracked the whip!

Gives 'hugs' and open mouth 'kisses' and has become very grabby, reaching for everything!

Sick, but still happy, baby. The 'plague' struck our house last week and we have quite recovered.

Made a quick trip to the ER for a big spike in fever. By the time we saw the doctor he was all smiles!

Six month update

Wow, can’t believe it’s been an entire month since my last post….guess I’m running out of hours in the day.

Hard to believe our Little Man is six months old. The time really does fly by! We have really been enjoying our time with Isaac the last few months. He’s active, responsive, fun to play with, and more mobile than ever!

Still no tooth yet, but there’s plenty of drool to go around.

In the last month we have gotten rid of the swaddle and sleep sack. He falls asleep on his own in the crib with his new security blanket and pacifier. Position of choice is on his stomach, face down….terrifies me! We have regressed a bit and haven’t been sleeping through the night the last few weeks. But, I can’t say I’m surprised, just disappointed. :-)

Likes: sitting up, talking, being outside, Sophie the Giraffe, football, bouncing, bath time, watching Zoey, and sleeping on his tummy.

Foods we’ve tried: oatmeal, yogurt, green beans, guacamole, chicken and dumplings, applesauce, cheese, corn, potatoes, pot roast and veggies, bread.

Looking forward to spring so we can venture outside more with him.

Look who’s five months old!

Recent updates: on Thursday he rolled from his back to stomach and he’s cutting a tooth!

Foods we’ve tried: banana, sweet potato, applesauce, avocado, yogurt, malt-o-meal, and oatmeal

Our love bug

Isaac getting into the spirit of Valentine’s Day!

We also made our first Valentine for his daycare friends….he wasn’t much help though.

Milestone

Isaac had his first solids tonight, mushed up banana, and seemed to really enjoy it.

The strange look on his face, I think, is him processing the newness of everything…texture, taste, chewing, swallowing.

My hope is to skip the cereals and puréed and jarred food altogether and go right to super soft and mushy table foods. In a month or so when he is better able to grab and hold things he’ll be feeding himself!

Time is flying by!

Isaac: Four month update

This update is long overdue….the Little Man is close to FIVE months now!

Likes:

  • Sitting up and standing
  • being part of any conversation…he’s a chatterbox!
  • blue giraffe stuffed animal
  • reading books. Brown Bear and The Going to Bed Book are favorites
  • mirrors and looking at himself
  • singing Wheels on the Bus
  • watching the other kids at daycare

Discoveries

  • Giggling just a little
  • He’s becoming ticklish
  • Rolling on his side….working hard at back to tummy rolling!
  • It’s a lot harder to grab and hold onto things sitting up…he gets frustrated.
  • Arching his back in displeasure.
