Oh, has it been two months since I've posted? Well, Elijah is now 6.5 months old and just exploding in development. It's amazing and so much fun. He is eating baby food, sleeping long stretches (one night it was 8.5 hours and it was awwwesome!), rolling over, sitting up, and making new noises. Still on vowel sounds, but I know those consonants will come soon enough.
My heart just melts looking at this pic (and a bunch more I took on this particular day … and honestly every pic of Elijah haha). I miss him so much during the day. He is a big boy! At his 6-month checkup, he weighed in at 21 lbs., 1.5 oz (95th percentile) and was 28.5 inches long (97th percentile)! He is wearing 12-month size clothes.
This week he has had a little cold and haaaates when I try to wipe his nose with anything—warm washcloth, dry tissue, soft blanket. But he loves baths so we get those crusties off that way. We also got a cold mist humidifier for his room which seems to help.
We love him! Like a lot!
