Carson {6 months}

Carson, you're 6 months old!

Weight/Height/Head Circumference:

At your 6 month appointment on May 23rd, you weighed 16.8 pounds (30th percentile), you were 27" long (70th percentile), & your head circumference was 44.5 cm (85th percentile).

Clothing Size:

You are wearing 3-6 months in all of your clothes, and a size 2 or 3 in shoes, just depending on how they're made.


You are wearing size 2 & 3 diapers. We're using the size 2s until we run out! You only wear size 3 diapers at night because you will pee through your diaper if you're in anything else!


You are still doing great on Similac Alimentum formula. You eat 6 ounces about every 3 hours during the day & 8 ounces in your bedtime bottle. We are still dealing with your acid reflux, but it is almost nonexistent now. :o)


Your hair is still a dirty blonde color, and your eyes are still blue. Sometimes, they have a green tint to them in the middle, but most of the time, they are just blue. Your hair is really growing in the back of your head! It's getting thick!


You still go to bed so easily at night in your crib & sleep great. Your bedtime is around 7:30. Most times, you still wake up once to eat, and then you normally sleep until 7:00. You still take great naps during the day! Sometimes you just take 30-45 minute cat naps, but other times, you will sleep for almost 1-2 hours. We are SO thankful! :o)

Other Stuff:

You learned to crawl on May 6th, and you haven't stopped since!

You can sit up on your own!

You love touching anything & everything. (and anything & everything goes straight to your mouth!)

You LOVE being outside!---this is your favorite thing! You also love to be walked around outside so you can touch the trees, flowers, etc.!

You still LOVE bath time!

You went to the nursery at granny's church for the first time on May 18th!

You love playing in the pack n play! I thought you would hate it because you are cooped up, but you really love it!

You love to swing at the park!

You sat in a highchair at a restaurant for the first time & in a grocery cart!

We had to lower your crib because you are starting to climb!

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is your favorite TV show!

I started making your first batches of baby food! I made sweet potatoes & pears first!
