My little dude is 6 months old today!
Time is flying and we're having so much fun! I love that this guy is still my baby (will be for his whole life), but that he's getting bigger, it's the best. He's still not the best sleeper, but he's getting better. He wakes up 1-2 times a night, but the past few nights has just been once each night which is amazing! We started solids with him a few weeks ago, but stopped because he got a cold, and the food seemed to make him more congested. He's had butternut squash, oatmeal, banana, spinach and papaya, his favorite being the papaya. Since he's starting to feel better, I'm hoping to bring back the solid food soon.
He finally had his doctors appointment, where I found out that my monthly measurements have been a bit off (whatever). Our new doctor is totally old school, no computer, no digital scale, etc. and we really liked him! He was very thorough and took his time. Cooper got two immunizations (didn't cry at all), the dTap, and HIB. We'll be going back mid next month for another flu shot for B, and two more immunizations for Cooper. Since we have a delayed schedule, and he's behind because of no insurance, our catch up will take some time. He's in the 10th percentile just like Brooklynne was, I guess we just make small babies.
He's not yet sitting up unassisted, he can hold himself up for a little while but not completely. He doesn't have any teeth yet, but for the amount he's drooling, I'm surprised nothing's there. He still loves to chew on his fists and his Sophie giraffe. He enjoys playing on the floor and LOVES his bouncy swing, he can jump in that thing for a while.
He's such an incredible little person, and we love him so much!!
Happy half birthday, Coop-a-doop!! Daddy, Mommy, and B love you so much!!

Want to compare Cooper to Brooklynne at 6 months?
I actually just did this and it's interesting to see the differences between the two at this age.
I post pictures of him on Instagram on a weekly basis, come check it out some time: annalisaj is my name
