I cannot believe this little boy is 6 months old already… It’s crazy how quickly each month has flown by!
Each and every day is pure joy having this little boy in our lives… We wake up every day to his cute little chatter from his crib, then the biggest smile appears as he pushes up and we see his gorgeous face… That is my happy place right there!
He is my chunky little monkey, at his late 5 month checkup on August 25th he weighed 17lbs 1oz, he had his HIB vaccine, I’m very strict about only having one vaccine at a time, I do not believe we should pump our bodies with an over load of vaccines!
He is still exclusively breast fed, but that is about to change this month as we head into baby led weaning! He is exclusively cloth diapered these days too, something we have gradually edged into and we are now in a routine with washing and drying, it’s easy once you know what you are doing!
The big milestone for Tate this month has been his fine motor skills, the use of his hands has dramatically changed, he now has more control and is touching everything he can reach, he is clumsy but you can see his hand skills improving every day! He loves to grab hair, touch toys and scratch my face! He can sit on his own for a very short time, he is wobbly but he can do it, he loves to roll around the floor, but hates it when he backs into a wall and is stuck!
His sleep pattern has changed a little, he needs two naps a day, morning and afternoon and he is grumpy by the evening if he doesn’t get them! He loves sleeping in his crib/cot the best. He has started to settle earlier in the evening around 7.30/8pm, which is lovely for me to get a couple of hours to myself but it does mean he wakes at about 3am, I’m not moaning because he usually nurses the goes back into bed asleep until about 6.30am, when our alarm wakes him!
He really is a gorgeous baby boy, happy, contented and very easy going… Fingers crossed this continues, as with Florrie things changed at this age, so I guess we will just have to wait and see… But for now I will make the most of each and every minute of his little baby time!
