NOLAN'S 6 MONTH UPDATE:
Weight: 16lbs 14 oz
Clothes Size: 6-12 month, 9 month
Diaper Size: 2 (Pampers swaddlers - will be switching to size 3 with the next box!)
Sleeping Patterns: Nolan is still typically waking up one time a night to nurse... Although, we did have about 4-5 nights this month where he slept all the way through the night. We have determined that giving him a bottle with a little bit of formula mixed in before bedtime encourages him to eat more and sleep longer.
Milestones: Teething: Two bottom teeth came in last month and we think he is working on the top ones now... he is back to acting fussy, drooling a ton and rubbing his gums. Nolan is rolling all over the place... he uses this as a means to move across the palette (or room) to get to something he wants. He has started to bend his legs underneath him and get into crawling mode so we are thinking it will not be long! He has also started sleeping on his tummy a lot at night - we still place him down on his back and then he rolls all around trying to get comfortable... quite funny to watch on the monitor. Eating solid foods is still coming along... Every day he typically gets 2-3 solid food meals including one of the following: oatmeal cereal (likes this much better than rice cereal), bananas, pears & peas. He gets very distracted while eating... constantly trying to watch everyone and everything going on. At home he has to know where Molly is and what she is doing at all times. At daycare they call him "Mr President" as he is the oldest baby in his class now and likes to sit at the front of the room in the feeding chair and watch everyone else in the room.
Favorite Memory this Month: A couple of weekends ago we drove to Dallas for the weekend so that Nolan could meet my Dad's family - My grandparents, Aunts, Uncles and cousins. It was so great to see them interact with Nolan and we got lots of great pictures as well. Nolan was so excited to play on the palette at Grandma & Grandpa's house.
We love our sweet & curious little boy. It is so much fun to watch him grow and learn each month. I am officially starting the countdown until I get to stay home with Nolan: 2.5 months! I gave my notice to work for the end of June and so it will be here before we know it!
