6 month Quinn Update


HAPPY 6 MONTHS! We had to celebrate our little boy last week because he turned a 1/2 a year! I know I am always saying this but I can't believe how fast time is flying!

EYES: Deep deep blue! Most people think they are dark brown when they first see them!

HAIR: It is finally starting to get thicker but mostly just in the back. Hes got choclate brown hair like this mamma! The texture is fuzzy and corse. I've been waiting for some curls to show up:)


SIZE: 6-9 month clothes. Hes in the 80% for height (soo long) and %14 for weight so most pants have to be 3-6 to fit around his little waist. Hes still in size 2 diapers!

SLEEPING: When he was 5 months he was on an amazing schdule and would sleep through the night. This month is a whole different story with teething starting up. He always goes to sleep around 8pm and wakes up at 4am for a feeding and when he has hard days sometimes he will wake up at 12am too:(  We are about to start up the sleep training again. It worked so great when he was 4 months but i've noticed every single month something new comes up and we have  Hes taking 2 good naps a day and usually will sleep for 2 hours each! 

EATING: He is still mostly a nursing baby. I've noticed my milk supply is getting lower beacause i've been back at work so we are supplementing one bottle a day now. When i'm at work he LOVES taking a bottle! So happy we finally found a formula and bottle he will take! We use Enfamil and Dr. Brown bottles. Works like a charm! Eating all kinds of solids now and drinking water from a sippy cup!

Milestones:

  • Scoots across the floor 
  • Sits up by himself
  • Belly laughs

What Quinn loves:

  • Swimming!! I take him to the pool almost everyday for a few hours. He is always splashing and making friends with all the other kids. By the end of the day we have a circle of little around us ! haha
  • My anti-cuddle baby has turned into a cuddler! He loves morning snuggles and my heart could explode every morning!!
  • He likes to be on the ground playing. It makes him so happy to scoot across the floor and finally get places. That boy is so so mobile already. My doctor thinks he will be walking in the next few months!
  • Going anywhere with lots of people around. The other day I walked into the grocery store and he let out the most excited squeal ever. He is always happy to be social!
  • Trying to feed himself with a spoon and drinking out of his sippy cup (Already thinks he can do everything by himself)
  • Peek-a-boo and Puppets 
  • Still loves grabbing mammas hair and everyother girls hair with his insane grip. Hes sooo strong
  • All dogs and most any animal. We are thinking we need to get a dog for this boy!    
What Quinn does not like:
  • Teething has been hard for him. Luckily orajel and the cold teething toys relieved the pain for him. He has one tooth on the bottom and we die because he looks like a little hillbilly!!
  • Not a huge fan of his veggies yet. Shouldn't have started him on the best stuff first!!
  • Can't stand being in a room alone. He's a pretty clingy little guy. 
haha he was so tired in this photos so it was hard to get him to show off his cheesy little grin!
