Tucker 6 Months Old

Our little baby is growing up so fast. It seems like just yesterday that I could lay him on the couch and not worry about him falling off, or lay him on the floor and not worry that he would stick something dangerous in his mouth, or even just give him a bottle and not have to give him a bottle and babyfood

Yep, he's growing up.

Tucker's Stats:
Weight: 19 lbs 3 ozs (90%)
Height: 27.25 inches (75%)
Head Circumference: 17 inches (50%)

8amish (more like whenever I feel like getting you up): eat 7 ozs and oatmeal mixed with fruit
10-12: Nap
12ish: eat 7 ozs and eat a couple tablespoons of veggie and fruit
2pm: Nap
4pm: eat 7 ozs and a veggie and fruit
B/n 7 and 7:30: eat 7 ozs and then go to bed

All About You:
-You love to roll over and over and over until you get stuck
-You worm your way around to get what was previously out of reach
-You can sit by yourself for about 15 seconds. If I want you to play sitting up, I use the boppy pillow to stabilize you-You have your first tooth teeth. They came in at the same time on the evening of Jan. 12. You showed no signs of crankiness, just red cheeks and gnawing on anything you could get your little hands on
-You put anything you can find in your mouth. You have choked on your big sister's toys that are way too small to be left on the ground. We've learned our lesson: Lilly once again has toys that are banned when Tucker's awake. She's had this rule once already so she wasn't too upset when it got enforced once again

-You have to have 1 tsp of antibiotic a day for THREE months b/c of your ear issues
-You've had rice (makes you constipated), oatmeal (still makes you constipated so I mix it with fruit), peaches, applesauce (not a big fan), prunes, acorn squash, yams, carrots to eat. You still aren't sure about your mom mixing all your food up in one bowl, you'd rather eat your veggies first then your fruit, but I'm usually in a hurry. Sorry. You don't mind eating the home-made babyfood, in fact, you've never even had jarred veggies yet.
-You go to bed like a champ. I think that you're going to follow in your big brother's footsteps.
-You have very unruly hair. You need a haircut but I can't part with it just yet
-You love to babble
-Your sister loves to hold you and pretend that you're her baby. She holds you, "pretend" feeds you, picks out your clothes
-You still sleep in a pack and play in my walk-in closet. You could probably bunk with your sister now since you don't really make a peep in the night. I should get on that.

You are growing every day and I am amazed at how much you can do and how old you are and just everything. It seems like with Lilly, I just sat and watched and waited for her to do her next skill or her next new thing. I don't really have time for that anymore (being a mom of 3) so it seems like when I do take the time and really observe you, you have learned a new skill or have more teeth. I am in awe of you, Tucker. We love you to pieces.
