I did it again, waited until he’s almost 7 months to get a post up.  I can’t believe how quickly time is passing – seriously, I don’t know how it’s going by so fast!

At 6 months, Isaac is:

Crawling like a little Speed Racer
When he gets hurt he crawls to me and tries to climb up my legs, wanting to be comforted
Drinking out of a sippy cup

Eating flavored snack puffs for toddlers
Pulling himself up to stand and walking along the couch
Climbing on everything

He Loves:

To be cuddled
To be rocked to sleep at night
Mashed bananas, sweet potato, and rice cereal
Crawling and especially when someone holds his hands and helps him walk
Playing with his sister
Noisy electronic toys (much to my consternation)
Music and watching certain cartoons with his sister like Wonder Pets and Sesame Street
Pulling books off the shelf, stuff out of the drawers, and just generally getting into EVERYTHING

He Doesn’t Love:

Being bit by his sister (yes, that did happen, though it was in play – SIGH)
Being dressed or undressed
Being passed from person to person in public places

Yep, it’s been an eventful first six months!  We’ve actually hit a great point in his life.  Now that he’s mobile he’s SO much happier than he used to be!  He seriously cried and cried and cried the whole first 5 months for one reason or another.  I’m just now starting to come out of a stupor.  I know that being mobile is making him happier and since he started eating solids he’s been spitting up less and less all the time and feeling better.  I know now things will just get better and better.  :)

So those of my friends who have babies around the same age… how is it going?

See you again @ 7 months!

  • Congrats! :) he’s so big and strong already pulling himself up :)

  • He’s adorable! I can’t believe he’s 6 months already either.

    My son was the same way, miserable until he became mobile. He was especially easier once he started walking. I think he was just frustrated that his body couldn’t keep up with where his mind wanted to go.

  • Issac is adorable! =) my first 2 kids were extremely mobile at this age. My last 2 not so much ;-). BabyChris is 6 months old he is starting to sit up and hopefully will start to crawl soon. Whenever we put him in the bumbo (on the floor =)) he flips out of it and rolls along his way (btw as I’m typing this he just flipped out of it). He loves the boob, bread, biscuits, red beans and rice, his older 3 siblings who are the only ones who can make him laugh, he loves to be held and loved on loves to suck his toes and his fingers. BabyChris hates baby food, baby cereal, applesauce (basically anything pureed), naps unless he is being held but he does go to sleep easily at night. They say time flies when your having fun and boy ohh boy are we having a good time =).

  • Wow, my baby is 3 months old and she looks so small compared to Isaac, they grow up so fast, aren’t they…?

  • Tobin had that same outfit…totally brings back memories! Isaac is getting so big! Amazing how fast they grow. He is so cute!

  • Wow, he’s so mobile! I can’t believe he’s pulling up on everything so well already! You will have an early walker on your hands, I think! Glad his mood is improving. I’m sure that’s easier on both of you!

    Jaxon is scooting on his tummy, but he’s not doing a full hands and knees crawl. I think he would pull himself up if he was on his hands and knees, because he’s very anxious to get around like his siblings. But since he’s on his belly, he can’t manage it. He tries but just can’t get there. I have got to do some serious child proofing. I am so not ready for him to be growing this quickly.

    Jaxon also does not like being passed from person to person in public places. I try to limit it for his sake, but it’s hard to refuse people sometimes.
