0 1/2 Years Old - Harris

My baby boy is 6 months - what??? Where did that half a year go and who is this Jabba the Hutt that ate my small baby?  Seriously, Cito has jumped from the 20% in weight last check up to somewhere close to the 75% in weight.  And I love it.  Those baby roles and pudgy little thighs are the best!  

Harris at 6 months:

Weight:  17 pounds
Length:  26 inches
FOC: 43

Sleep:  A few rocky nights here and there but I think we're getting the hang of sleeping.  We just stopped the 10pm bottle so we feed the boy at 7pm (bm and 1 Tbsp of rice cereal) and he'll go until some time between 5am - 7am.

Eating:  Three solids a day - rice cereal and fruit in the morning, veggies at lunch and veggies at dinner.  I've busted out the food processor again so we're back to making baby food.  BFing every 3-3 1/2 hours and topping him off with about 2 oz of formula almost every feeding since I wasn't producing enough to keep up with him.

Rolling all over the place.  Starting to army crawl a little.  Can sit independently for a few seconds at a time.  

Happy, happy, happy!  Full of smiles and laughs (like to the point where people stop us in the grocery store because he's smiling at them...they don't realize he will smile at a cockroach too).  And he's a grunter!  Is this a boy thing?   He sounds all caveman-ish.  For any boys that might be reading this, you all make a lot of noise.  

Harris is enamored with his sister.  He watches her all day with this goofy grin on his face.  And the second she pays him an ounce of attention he just lights up.  I think its adorable but I have a feeling the Squirrel will start finding it very annoying as her middle school years approach.    
Happy Half Birthday Cito-Meeto!
