Over the weekend, my son had his 6 month appointment. He is getting so big! I wish I could freeze time and keep him at this age forever (well most of the time)! He is doing so well!
Here are some of the milestones he has been working on:
- Sitting up by himself (still wobbles a little)
- Standing up while holding onto me or other stable objects
- Coos and "talks" all the time
- Transfers objects from one hand to the other
- Grabs and pulls things including my hair
- Learned to throw objects
- Rolling over all the time
- Follows objects and voices
- Laughs hysterically
- Smiles all the time
- Seems to recognize people and faces
Nothing has changed:
- Still sleeping through the night
- No teeth or any signs of teeth
- Not much hair yet
Height = 10 percentile (dropped from 25th)
Weight = 5 percentile (stayed the same)
Head Circumference = 25 percentile (up from 10th)
The pediatrician did note that J.T still has a little Strabismus in his right eye. Strabismus is unequal eye movement, or where the eyes are not properly aligned. It is fairly normal for babies to have this up until 3 months, but after that time period, doctor's tend to worry that something else may be causing this lack of alignment. The pediatrician recommended that I see a specialist. He also got some shots...3 to be exact and a syrup! Mama hates to see little J.T. get shots:-( Little battle wounds...at least the band-aids are cute.
We are still exclusively breastfeeding and it is going great! I am hoping to make it to 1 year! You know what they say...food is for fun until 1. It seems like people think I am crazy for trying to exclusively breastfeed until 1, but it is natural...I mean what did people used to do way back in the day? The plan is to start and introduce solids (cereal, home-made baby food) at 1 year. So far so good!

How did your little one fit into the "norms"?
Did you ever have to deal with Strasbismus or any other baby ailments?
