Drew's 6 Month Update

*It's getting harder to take your milestone pictures these days!

*Sleeping exclusively in your crib or packnplay when we are at Gigi and Popi's house. You are either on your back or side..yes your side!!! It is really cute!

  *Always babbling, and you have started to laugh..giggle! It's really adorable!

*We tried rice & oatmeal..but after lots of research..your tummy isn't well equipped to adequately digest all of that :( So, we have moved onto .. Bananas, sweet potatos and carrots... you absolutely LOVE sweet potatos! You get angry when the spoon isn't refilled and ready to go :) 

*Your Doctor wants us to go to a feeding specialist..more on that later.

*Love splashing the water during your baths! I'm going to find some cute bath toys! You have grown out of the first part of your tub.. ahhh you are growing!!

*Andrew you bring us so much joy...

*When you are really happy your body tenses up and you scrunch into a ball and bury your head into my shoulder. Your Daddy & I really love it when you do that!

*Feedings down to 5 bottles a day...!

*At the church picnic (September 22) I took you down to dance the misirlou (ethic circle dance) and I held you the whole time. My arm was ready to fall off but you enjoyed it ohhh so much! I wish we would have gotten a picture!

*You are so curious.. constantly reaching for face..the bottle. Reaching for the green duck that hangs off your car seat.

*Still drooling a lot and at times more fussy than normal. We think you may be teething..but who knows! Started to use your Sophie giraffe and I see you chewing your pacifier ...teething?

*I found you a Halloween outfit!!! Oh my you look soo cute! Can't wait!

*Wearing size 6-9, 9 clothing!

*A big smile goes on your face when you see Kingston or Eli Mae. Eli is like a big mama bear to you.. Kingston is finally starting to warm up to ya!

*Rolling rolling rolling... !! It's great!

*Just recently you are able to sit up all by yourself..I don't wander too far in case to tumble over!

*Did I mention you are fussy these days :) We purchased tons of stuff to help with teething...! Hoping at least one item does the trick! Here you are chewing on the apple.

*In size 3 diapers..We really like Target and cute!  

*Went to Alexandria-day trip. You were a very good little boy! It was a beautiful day :)

*Your 6 month appointment stats: Weight: 17lbs 13.6oz, Length: 26.25, Head 45cm. Growing!

*Been going to church a lot since we are up in PA for a little bit. I love that you are able to see your Godmothers and that they are taking you up for communion. Below is a picture of us after looked soo handsome!

*You are in your big boy stroller seat :( can you believe it!!! BUT you love it! We sometimes take 4 walks a day since Daddy works soo late.You are constantly looking around...and appear very relaxed. This is my view of you now! ps.. i LOVE your stroller...


  1. Oh, he is just way too cute! This post brings me back because Landon met a lot of these milestones around the same age. That was almost a year ago for him and that's nuts to me!

    Teething sucks. What's worked best for Landon is Orajel (both the actual gel and their teething tablets), frozen teething rings, Advil (not Tylenol. Tylenol does crap lol), and this awesome homeopathic stuff called Camilia. I swear that stuff got us through the 7 weeks it took for all 4 of Landon's molars to break through. I love it because it's all natural, you can't overdose the kid on it, and it works almost instantly. It's a bit pricey, but sooooo worth it!

  2. LOVE LOVE LOVE the photo with the sticker on his back!!
