Peter Bryson Month by Month: 6 Months


November 27, 2016

Dear Peter,

Happy 1/2 birthday little boy!  Today you turned 6 months old.  I can't even believe you've been in our family for that long already.  Its been such a wonderful 6 months.  We love the space you've filled in our family.  

At six months old you weigh 21 pounds 12 ounces (93rd percentile) and you are 28 inches long (91st percentile).  You are still super chubby but you've finally slowed down a bit (you've only gained about a pound and a half since you were 4 months old), which is nice so we can keep up with you on buying clothes now haha!  
You roll around a lot but you are not even close to crawling or scooting.  You are not a big fan of tummy time and always roll over as soon as we put you on your tummy.  You love to be held and are almost always happy and content if someone is holding you.  You are super smiley and giggly, especially for your big sister Claire.  She can always get the biggest smiles and laughs out of you.
We've started you on solids a little and you aren't too impressed with them so far.  You tolerate a few bites at the most and then you refuse to open your mouth unless we trick you into smiling.  So far we've tried feeding you prunes, oatmeal, and peaches.  We're hoping we'll eventually find something you actually like.
You sleep pretty good, you usually only wake up once a night.  Ideally on a good day you take 3 naps, one long in the morning, one long one in the afternoon, and then a short one in the evening.  You don't always take the third one it just depends on the day, but you're much happier when you stick to your schedule!
You still have bright blue eyes, so I think its safe to say they are here to stay.  I never thought I'd get a blue eyed baby so I am in love with your eyes.  They are pretty dang cute!  I love to kiss your chubby cheeks and snuggle (when you let me, which isn't very often).  I can't wait to watch keep growing over the next 6 months but I do hope time will slow down just a little.

Love you too much,

Mom
