6 months

Our little boy is growing up so fast. 6 months doesn't seem that long, but when you say half a year, it seems much longer. We went to the doctor today for his 6 month check-up and shots. Today was the first time I held him while they gave him his shots. I didn't really enjoy it, but he was a good boy. He screamed as they gave him the shots and then he was all better. Here are his stats: (he's only in the 25 percentile for all 3 - such a petite little boy as the doctor put it)

Weight - 16 1/2 pounds
Height - 25 3/4 inches
Head - 16 7/8 inches

Bryce is changing every day. Here is a 6 month update as to what he is up to these days:
  • He wears size 3 diapers
  • He wears 6-9 months clothes
  • He has been rolling to his right forever, but he just started rolling to his left TODAY!
  • He has started cooing more
  • He loves to laugh when Jason tickles his knees
  • He is doing great at sitting up
  • He has started pulling himself up to a standing position
  • He LOVES rice cereal
  • He is NOT such a great sleeper anymore. He goes to bed great, but just can't stay asleep all night.
  • I'm sure there is a ton more things, but that's all I've got tonight!
The doctor gave us the okay to start foods today. She suggested green beans so that is just what we did. As you can see, Bryce wishes we had started with something else. ha! He actually ate the first few bites without any expression. It wasn't until about the 5th bite that he realized he didn't like it so much. I had to follow up with rice cereal to help get the yucky taste out of his mouth. The doctor suggested veggies first, but I'm thinking fruit will have a better response!

The pictures didn't quite capture just how much Bryce hated the green beans (even though you can obviously tell he doesn't like them since he is spitting them out) so we gave him a few more so we could video tape the experience. Now that is something to laugh at. Another great video for the blog hop. ha!

So, I went back and looked it up...Chase weighed more at 4 months than Bryce does now! To his credit, that was his highest percentile month. He's trimmed down...a little. (I'm with Bryce on the baby green beans. They are nasty just to look at!)
