Micah @ 6 Months

Micah is six months old today, and he has changed so much in the past month.  His little personality is bursting through. I cannot believe my baby has been here half of a year.  The next thing you know we'll be celebrating his first birthday.

At six months old, Micah...

... weighs in at 17 pounds, 14 ounces, and is 26.25 inches long.

... wears size 6-9 months clothes, and sometimes a size 12 month.  He still is in size 3 diapers.

... is able to roll from his tummy to his back.  He woke me up at around 4:30 am on Thursday.  When I went to check on him, he was on his back talking to the shadows.  He sleeps on his belly.  I was one surprised mama.

... is sitting up on his own.  He is usually in the middle of the bed or surrounded by pillows, but he can tripod.  He is even testing his strength by sitting up on his own, though he usually has to catch himself quickly or he falls over.

... is very observant.  When introduced to a new situation, setting, or person, he will sit quietly and watch everything. 

... is such a clown.  He loves funny noises, and will make his own.  (He gets that from his mommy.)

... takes two naps a day.  Until recently, Micah was taking three naps a day, then slowly his second nap of the day got shorter and shorter, until it disappeared.  Occasionally he will take a very short nap in the afternoon, but that one is mostly gone.

... wakes up smiling and talking.  It is the cutest thing.  When Micah wakes up now, he lays in his crib and talks to his hands, the shadows, or his "friends" on his mobile.

... hustles backwards when on his belly.

... has discovered his feet when he's on his back.  They haven't made it to his mouth (yet), but I'm waiting on it.

... loves to jump.  When you stand him in your lap, he waves his arms and bends his knees to get you to jump him up and down.

... is still waiting on those teeth to come in.  He does have a teether now though.  He still enjoys chewing on his fingers, bibs, and pacifier.

... is now eating grits.  I may need a wheel barrel to move him around.  He has also graduated to stage 2 jar food.

... is starting to have temper tantrums.  He falls out if he can't have his way. He cries if he sees you, and wants you to hold him, but you walk by him.

... goes by the nicknames Toot, Gus-Gus, Chubba-Chub, MicahMan, and Toulouse.
