Julian's big-boy update!

Today, Julian is 6 months and 3 weeks...

*At his six-month check-up on May 30th, he weighed 20 lbs. (90% percentile) and is 27.5 inches long (85% percentile).

*He is quite the squirmy, wiggler having recently rolled over! He loves wiggling around on the activity mat and moving all over.


*He loves playing with bright-colored toys and deftly transfers objects easily from hand to hand.

*Definitely teething...Joe discovered his two bottom teeth are 'cutting through' - slowly but surely.

*He has also found his voice, he squeals and sings and screeches, leading you to believe you will never be able to hear again. I think I've lost partial hearing.

*We've been introducing new vegetables as much as we can. He has enjoyed the pureed-version of sweet potatoes, split peas, avocado and zucchini. Bananas make a daily appearance at breakfast time. 

*Baby Julian eats four times a day (7:30, 11:30, 3:30, 7:30) and is in bed by 8:00p.m. He sleeps until about 7:00 in the morning. We make sure he takes two two-hour naps each day (morning and afternoon).

*We also started taking him to My Gym in Lake Mary - a children's gym that encourages physical activity and social interactions. Babies truly seem to be enthralled by other babies; I love watching his reaction when he sees other babies.  

*He loves to laugh at anything and everything. It's heart-melting and is a sweet reminder that the littlest things in life are truly the greatest gifts.

Now for some pictures and videos!

Yep, pretty sure he's the most beautiful baby!

Jumperoo!
