Patrick, months 6 and 7

Months 6 and 7


Our gorgeous chubby chunky monkey is growing at a rate of knots! At his 6 month checkup he was 98th percentile for weight (9.1kg), 75th for head circumference and between 50th and 75th for height. The changes we see in him and make in his routine come faster now. Since the start of the year we have moved him into the main seat of the pram, he has started nursery 4 days a week and I have started the baby led weaning process. So far he has "eaten" sticks of carrot, cucumber, apple, banana, cheese, chicken, bread, rice cake, rusk, broccoli. Lots of mess, but lots of fun. Not sure how much is actually going in, but at this stage it is enough that he is playing with the food. He is still breastfeeding unabated.

He tends to go down a bit earlier now, between 1030 and 1130 (rather than midnight, thank goodness) and tends to sleep through. Although I still get woken once or twice a week at odd times, ie 2am or 6am for an extra feed.

He is smiling and laughing and laughs hysterically when Markus jumps around. He has also started using the plane jumper (attaches to door frame or hammock stand) - photos soon. He is close to rolling, but Dr said given his weight (!) it might take a while yet. He can sit for a few seconds, but then tips forward, but enjoys sitting in the bumbo. Everything goes in his mouth and I think he's teething - first tooth should be along soon. I also need to move him into his and Markus' room soon -but I like having him next to me in bed :-)
