Six Months

Weight: 20 lbs (putting him in the 90th percentile for weight...26.25" which is only the 31% for height!)

Health: Happy and healthy!

Sleep: Overnight sleeping continues to be consistent (yay!), however, this month was a transitional one for napping.  James Robert started taking 2 longer naps rather than 3-4 cat naps throughout the day.  This has been a game changer in terms of his happiness and energy levels during the day.  The boy loves a good nap!

Social:  This month, James Robert met many of this Leanderson family Aunts, Uncles and cousins for the first time which was very exciting!

Diet:  In addition to eating cereal once daily, we sampled a bit of banana and some avocado this month.  Both were met with hesitation on the first go around.

Clothes: Our boy grows out of clothes faster than I can buy them, it seems! We've gotten great mileage out of Baby Gap's 6-12 month onsies as they seem to fit the best as do their comfortable pants and shorts.  As for his john-johns, he is in 9 or 12 month sizes.

Baby Gear:  Some of our favorites from this month were:
1) This sunhat has been a summer must-have
2) While traveling we used the ocean white noise feature on this app and like it so much we now use it at home too
3) This raft is great for covering baby with shade while letting them enjoy the water
4) Baby gap has the most comfortable and best fitting active pants for our chunky monkey
5) Ditto on baby gap onsies
6) These chew beads are pretty enough that I get compliments on my necklace while they are also perfect for James Robert to play with to his hearts content
7) Dapple's surface cleaner smells wonderful and is perfectly natural
8) James Robert LOVES tags-- taggies mirror is a hit

Crying: I think James Robert saved up all of his crying this month for his first plane ride.  He cried almost the entire 1 hour and 15 minutes from Charlotte to Detroit.  But he still mostly greets new situations with a smile rather than tears.

Likes: Water time, singing the "Wheels on the Bus" song (over and over and over), blowing bubbles and making funning noises, playing the piano with Momma, facing out in the baby carrier and sleeping on his belly.

Milestones:  This month James Robert really mastered sitting up and started rolling over, both back and forth, and splashing purposefully in the pool.  He went on his first big trip and has many fun "firsts" in Northern Michigan.
