Cole: 6 months

On December 27th, our little turned six months old.  This is big.  This means Cole is half way to celebrating the big O-N-E year old birthday!  Wow-wee.  

We took Cole to his well-child visit on Friday.  Yeah... check out these stats:

  • Weight: 23 lb. 10 oz. (100%)
  • Height: 28.5 in. (100%)
  • Head Circumference: 45.8 cm (99%)

Wow-wee is pretty much right, friends.  Here are a few more notable things about our little:

  • Cole is an assisted-sitter!  If you sit him open cross-legged style, he can sit on his own for a good two minutes.  He reached this milestone about a week or so before he turned six months.  
  • He graduated out of his infant car seat into a convertible backwards-facing car seat.  He thinks he is Joe Cool.
  • The boy loves to suck/chew on his lower lip or fingers.  Pacifiers need not apply.
  • If you think there is anything better to Cole than his momma, you would be wrong... the boy is definitely a momma's boy.  
  • Cole started physically interacting with Kingston this month, rolling and "wrestling" in our living room with his brother (gently and very carefully, of course).  
  • Thank heaven for a baby dedicated to his schedule - the boy has two naps daily (10:00AM and 2:00PM) and is in bed between 7:30 and 8:00PM every evening.  What a beautiful thing.
  • Cole enjoys his solid food; we are already working through our fourth box of single-grain oatmeal and he has added peaches and sweet potatoes to his favorites.
  • Our little likes to make sure he gets his workout in...his favorite toy is his jumper.  The boy works it daily.
  • Another nickname for Cole?  "Juicy Joe," in reference to the pools of drool we see each day and some spit-up.  Hooray.
  • Christmas tunes may be here to stay in our household, regardless of season - Cole loves listening to Christmas carols... and maybe loves them that much more when I jump in and sing a line or two...
We are truly blessed and spoiled to have another sweet baby boy in our family.
