A little late on this post, but our baby boy is now half a year old! He’s certainly developed his personality a lot this month, and lil man has an attitude! there’ve been a few really big developmental changes this month.
If he sits for long, he kinda slumps down to a monkey sit, but he holds his balance really well and doesn’t fall to the side unless he finds something interesting and really wants to get to it.
Even though he’s been capable of rolling for a few months now, he hasn’t had much interest in it until recently. Now though, he rolls all over. He’s a lot better at front-to-back than back-to-front and sometimes still gets stuck on his tummy.
3.) Bottom lip.. sucking?
I don’t even know, but it’s his new thing. He’ll suck in his bottom lip when he’s happy/exploratory. It’s so goshdarn cute and yet so hard to take a good picture of.
4.) Night wakings
Still at it. It’s been particularly bad the last 2-3 weeks… we’ve only had 2 nights where he actually slept through. He usually wakes up 2-4 times a night, with 2 being more likely. Once, we were up from 12:30am to 3:30am with 15 minute breaks in between. It’s exhausting, but I’m pretty sure it’s a phase. It might even be his teeth – our pedi warned us they could be coming in shortly.
There’s no crawling yet, even though he can span a considerable distance just rolling around, and we don’t have any syllable babbling yet either, though some ma’s and mama’s have made an appearance. Usually when he’s angry.
We’ve started baby-led weaning and Logan is loving it! While we’ve tried purees in the past and still do occasionally, he just doesn’t love them very much. He loves being able to feed himself and trying new things. So far, he’s especially fond of broccoli, grapes, oranges and carrots. It’s messy, but oh-so-much fun!
