Reese at 6 months

Reese had his 6 month checkup, and the boy is big. 19 pounds, 27 1/4 inches. (Ramsey was 19 pounds at a year old) He has 3 teeth with one closing in. He is officially crawling, but still not much of a sitter, because he would rather stand. He loves his food, especially applesauce, but he is a little particular when it comes to the cereal.

But for being such a big boy, he still is not sleeping through the night. We have tried a bedtime routine, making sure he eats enough during the day, making sure he is rested, but nothing has worked. Last night he woke up twice! Ugh. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

He still has a ton of hair and is almost ready for his 2nd haircut. But my favorite part? His favorite people are Ramsey, Riley, and Regan. I hope they will always be best friends. I will post some pictures when I get my camera fixed, or get a new one.


  1. Eve has been waking up, too. But she's not hungry - that's just the natural parent response when the baby wakes up in the middle of the night, I think. She calms when I walk into her room. The doc said he hears that a lot from six-month-old moms, the baby waking a lot at night. I think it's the whole seperation anxiety thing - they naturally wake during sleep cycles and when Mom's not there... So we're (I'm) hoping it will pass soon! She was up several times last night. Ugh. But I'm not feeding her and she's totally fine, so I think that's better. At least she's not dependent on a feed to get back to sleep. Don't know if that helps or if I'm just rambling. Good luck!

  2. I try not to feed him, but I can hear his stomach growling. Maybe he's in a continual growth-spurt.
