Asher is...Six Months Old!

Posted late because the little guy was under the weather on the day he turned six months :(

I simply cannot believe you are already halfway to a year old!  Time is literally flying by.  Bubba remains your primary nickname and your charming personality continues to unfold.  You "appear" to be a big baby but are actually a small fry.  You finally outgrew 0-3 month clothes officially and are still comfortable in 3-6 months clothes.  The 6 month size is still a little roomy on you for now.  You are still in size 2 diapers and finally are sleeping more consistently through the night-hallelujah!


What is it that you can't do at this point?!?  You started solids this past two weeks and are doing great!  So far you have only eaten fresh/organic sweet potatoes, avocado, and bananas.  You have also had Earth's Best organic rice cereal plain and with bananas.  We are trying squash, baby oatmeal, and spinach/bananas over this next week.  Your favorite so far was avocado :) You grab the spoon and try and feed yourself which is a great sign you are doing well with fine motor skills.  We are also about to introduce the sippy cup!  You are so strong and so active, mommy and daddy literally cannot turn our eye away from you for a single second of you will have rolled your way into the next room.  Time to baby proof! We dedicated you to The Lord on October 16th and couldn't be happier or more proud.

Growing Pains....

You spent your six month birthday not feeling well which is so sad because you are never sick. You are the happiest and most joyful little guy so it breaks mama's heart to see you in pain.  At your six month appointment you weighed in at 15 lbs 9 oz and are 26 inches long.  You are in the 14th percent tile for weight and 21th percent tile for height so you are still on the smaller side but growing well against the chart.  Your head is 17.3 inches placing you in the 66th percent tile.  Your eczema and tinea neck rash is improving each day and your reflux is not nearly as bad the older you get and that is without medicine!  Don't get me wrong, you are still a happy spitter/drooler and we will be SO HAPPY when you are out of this stage but things are getting better. 

You are the beat of my heart kid.  Mommy and daddy love you sooo much!
