6 Month Update Sebastian


DAILY ROUTINE:

You still usually wake up happy. First thing in the morning you watch Your Baby Can Read while you sit in your office.  You then explore and play on the floor until you feel hungry.  You nurse and usually nod off and nap.  When you wake up it is usually during your sister's quiet time so we have Mommy and Son time where we talk, tickle and giggle.  Then you usually nurse.  Then we are hanging out with your big sister watching her play outside or you are playing along side her inside.  Then it is nursing and another nap.   When you wake up from your nap you hang out with Mommy & Muti for dinner then it is bath time/ bed time.


FOOD:

Exclusively breast fed!  We have delayed starting you on solids only because we are still searching for a used Stokke High Chair that matches your sisters.  Soon enough though.


SLEEP: 

Night: Bedtime for you starts around 8 you typically fall asleep between 830pm and 930pm.  You are sticking with your pattern usually around 2/3 AM and the again around 6/7 AM, then you usually sleep until 830 or 9 in the morning.

Day: You are now starting to go down for your 1st nap at around 1030/11 this is usually a short nap that is only about 30 minutes to an hour.   Sometime between 230 and 530 you will go down for your second nap the earlier you go down the longer you seem to sleep.  You are usually awake by 630pm at the latest.

MILESTONES:

You are doing the army crawl like mad, this method has proven very effective for getting you to where you want to go.  However, In the last few days you have started to pull yourself up to your knees and you are starting to do the pre-crawl rock.  You still haven't sat up unassisted but when you are sitting up you are starting to be able to keep your balance.  You are really close to pulling yourself up on to your knees so much so we are getting ready to drop your crib mattress a little lower.


WHAT'S FUNNY:

You like to smile at your big sister, the dogs and Mommy and Muti!  We get you to laugh by making "shushing" sounds aggressively while bouncing you... Muti can get you to laugh by tickling you in a certain spot on your side towards your back right along your rib cage.  Maggie makes you laugh by blowing raspberries right in your face.



YOUR FAVORITE TOY:

You really seem to gravitate towards cars and blocks and anything you can bang on a hard surface.  As much as we enjoy watching you with the matchbox cars we have set them out of reach so you don't choke on them so you will have to wait a little longer before you get to enjoy them.

CLOTHES SIZE:

You can still wear 3-6 month pants for the most part but are now wearing pretty much ALL 6-9 month clothes!

HAIR COLOR:

Your hair is really starting to grow in.. but it is more blonde than strawberry blonde.

EYE COLOR:

They are BLUE!!
