6 Months

A whole half a year... yikes! I cannot believe that we are entering the second half of Maxton's first year of life already. It really seems like yesterday that we found out we were pregnant and now here we are. Max has continued to amaze us this month with new milestones such as sitting more reliably, grabbing his feet and putting them in his mouth, and using a sippy cup independently. It seems like things are happening so quickly now and before we know it he'll be moving around on us! I'm just trying to savor these last few months (or weeks maybe?) of him wanting to be held versus aching to get away because he can go anywhere he wants! Here are the stats from his 6 month doctor appointment:

Weight: 20 pounds 2 ounces
Height: 27 inches

He was in the 75-90th percentile for both (huge range I know). He did really well with his shots, not even crying for one of them! A big bonus for mom here. We recently discovered that he has some eczema and the doctor assures us that his bottom 2 teeth are on the verge of emerging any day now. However, it could take another 4 weeks or so. Teething has caused some disruptions in sleep this month as has Max's increasing awareness of his surroundings. His favorite spot to sleep is snuggled up next to me while nursing and every time he woke up he expected those same circumstances to fall back asleep. We're working on that now and I'll update you next month ;)

Here is our little cutie on a beautiful day at the park:
