My little baby is already six months old-wow. Time flies even quicker with the second child. Alex is such a delight. He is just the happiest baby and smiles all the time. And the little guy loves the ladies already. He does the big grin, buries his face into me, and then gives the ladies another big grin. Love it.
He weighs in at 16 lbs, 10 ozs which puts him in the 30th percentile. He is 25 1/2 inches long, putting him in the 12th percentile. Yup, he's short! He makes up for it with his head size-can't remember what it is but it's the 70th percentile. Fairly certain it's for all those brains.
He has two teeth now, both on the bottom. His new favorite food is mango-just made him some tonight and he went wild over them. He also started eating Gerber puffs and Cheerios and he's pretty excited about those too.
He's also figured out the sleep thing, hallelujah! He goes to bed between 7pm-8pm. Wakes up around 5ish for a bottle and then goes back to sleep until 8am or so. Takes a two hour nap at 10am and then again around 2pm. Yesss. This makes mommy very very happy.
He's just into everything, it's amazing. I could have put wine glasses in front of Sydney at this age and she never would have touched them. Alex is quite the opposite and is always grabbing my glasses and reaching for things. We never really baby proofed with Sydney-have a feeling we'll definitely be doing that very soon!
Here are some pictures of the little guy-and of course Sydney too. The best big sister ever. She is such a big help and I love that I can send her into Alex's room when he has woken up. She sings to him, plays with him and reads him stories. My little mommy is just the best little helper.
