Seth – six months

Seth is six months old!


I love to play on my tummy with my toys, roll over and I am trying to scoot forward and all around.
Lately, I have been working on sitting up. I’m close, but not quite there yet.
At my sixth month check-up I weighed 16 lbs. 16 oz. and measured 26 in. long.
I have fuzzy hair that sticks straight up from my head. It’s my most striking quality 🙂 … everyone is always rubbing my head.
I have a lot of fun squealing loudly, grunting and growling. I have a great big smile and a fun laugh, or so I am told.
I have started making a few consonant sounds.
My big brother definitely makes me laugh. When I start screeching, he copies me and then things get really loud!
I love being outside, kicking and splashing in the bathtub and grabbing people’s hair.
I started sleeping much longer at night a little after six months, and I am good at putting myself to sleep. I wake up once now to feed. I like to take a morning nap around 9 and a mid-afternoon nap around 12:30 or 1, and sometimes a third nap gets thrown in there. I have completely ignored a pacifier, but instead, I like to suck on my thumb every now and then, especially when I am sleepy or if I wake up in the middle of the night.
I think I am going to be trying food soon! At least, that’s what the big people tell me.
