Parker at 6 Months!

No way my baby is 6 months already!  Fastest 6 months ever!  We sure do love our sweet Parker, and he just adds so much joy and calmness to our crazy family!

Stats: 17 lbs 4.5 oz 47%
28 in 95%
17.25 in head circa 67%

Eating: Parker drinks 6 oz bottles at 7am, 10, 1, 4, 7 and 10.  We have tried baby food the past couple of nights, and he is just not a fan at all!  We've tried oatmeal, apples, and sweet potatoes.  

Personality: He is so sweet and happy all the time!  He is very social, and will smile and talk to everybody.  Parker is super flexible and easy going.  He loves to be sitting up in the middle of the action just taking it all in.

Sleeping: At night he sleeps from 8pm - 7am.  He takes 2 naps in the mornings, about 30 minutes each.  One about 9 and one at 11:15.  Then he naps from 1:30-4ish.  And he usually takes an evening nap about 6:00 for 30 min.  I love his schedule right now!  Most days his mornings naps are on the go in his carseat.

Likes: pretty much everything!  But his favorites are baths, being outside, watching his brothers, toys that make noise, his exersaucer, floating in the pool, and pulling my hair!

Dislikes: when I take too long to make a bottle, when his brothers and loud noises startle him, baby food

Milestones: He got his bottom two teeth!  I already miss his gummy smile.  And it looks like he's working on a top tooth too.  Parker stayed with Nana and Bop last week for 4 nights while we took our big boys to San Diego.  He did awesome, and we got a glowing report!  He also went on his first beach trip to Port A!  He loved being with his cousins, and he was great about napping on the beach in the mornings.

Clothes: He is mainly wearing all 6 month clothes, but he can still squeeze into some 3-6 months.  He is wearing size 3 diapers.
Favorite Moment: I love watching his sweet personality develop.  Graham is very interested in Parker, and is always so sweet to him!  He brings him toys, talks to him, holds a bottle when I need him to, wants to help feed him, and loves to make him laugh.

Looking forward to: More of the same!  He's been so good about being on the go with our crazy summer schedule of traveling and entertaining the big boys everyday.  Once they're both back in school, Parker and I will have some good quality time!

My whole heart!  They are wild and crazy, but I wouldn't trade these days for anything.

He's so close to sitting up by himself consistently!  He's made so much progress just in the last week.

Sweet cuddles today after 3 shots.  

Happy 6 months sweet Parker!

  1. Sweet Parker! He is so good and happy all the time. He flashes his smile and it melts me. I love his giggles and laughs when he is tickled. We had so much fun keeping him.
