Can’t believe Gage turned 6 months old on the 6th. Time is definitely flying by faster this time around than it did with Hunter in my opinion. It may be because we are a lot busier but still makes it hard to realize it’s flying by. Gage still loves his homemade baby foods.. favorite right now is the apples because I can add cinnamon to them now! He is now sleeping through the night (knock on wood) because we finally gave in and started putting cereal in his bottle at night. We didn’t for a while because his formula already has some cereal in it so we didn’t want to do too much. But sleepless nights were really getting to us so we had to do it. Worked like a charm so far. Now he will get up at times to eat may be one or two times a month but we think those are the times he is really hitting a growth spurt. He went to the doctor for his six month shots on the 7th and weighs 15.8 pounds now. My growing boy! His height is 27 inches which puts him in the 10th percentile for weight and 75th for height. The doctors aren’t too considered with his weight because his height is just making him skinny. He is still the happiest most laid back little boy. He has moments where he wants our undivided attention (but who doesn’t at times) but for the most part he couldn’t care less where you put him or what you do to him. This month he is truly starting to laugh more often but still laughs the most at Hunter. Anything Hunter does he is amazed by and thinks is the greatest thing in the world. I hope that last! We have enjoyed the past six months with this little fella and can’t wait for many more. He has brought so much joy and laughter to our family.
Hunter has a thing, maybe an obsession, with squirt bottles. He loves them! Now every time we wash the car he has to get his squirt bottle out. At first he will squirt the car and try to get the soap off for us or pre-wet it so we can wash it, then it leads to him just plain out squirting us!! He has a blast and that’s all that matters. Gage finds him pretty funny too :-)
Also at school he had a policeman come to visit him and the rest of the kids. He learned to look both ways before crossing the street, don’t talk to strangers, and never take candy from them!
