Wyatt 5/6 Month Update

It’s hard to believe Wyatt is now 7 months old!  Time is FLYING by!  Here’s a recap from the last two months…

His official Stats:

Weight: 17.8 lbs (he’s a solid little dude)
Height: 24.5 inches
Teeth: none (definitely teething though)
Clothes: 6-9 month

Wyatt 's personality is developing more and more every day!  According to his teachers at daycare he’s "the happiest baby they’ve ever met!” 

He is now officially sleeping in his crib (unless he’s sick then he ends up in his swing). At about 5 months he moved from sleeping on his back to sleeping on his stomach.  He was pretty restless at first, waking up quite often until we introduced a small crocheted blanket (don’t worry, it’s totally breathable), which immediately did the trick.  He loves to curl up with it and sleeps great all night (most nights)

Wyatt has hit quite a few milestones these past couple of months. One of his favorite things to do is to “be heard”.  He loves to squawk as loud as he can and babbles quite often!  He’s started sitting up by himself (still a bit unsteady, but getting there), scoots and rolls all over, and is now pushing himself up on to his hands and knees like he’s ready to start crawling any day now!  He definitely gets frustrated that he can’t quite move yet. 

As far as eating goes, the majority of his meals come via bottle (about 25-30 oz a day).  At 6 months we introduced baby food, but he didn’t really take to it right away.  We currently feed him via spoon once a day (usually at dinner time) and he’s liking it more and more (bananas are his current favorite).

Other favorites of Wyatt’s include: bath time, hanging out his Jumperoo – he goes absolutely crazy in the thing, being tossed into the air and giggling at the top of his lungs, staring at his hands for long periods of time (hilarious to watch), and of course his sister – he LOVES watching her play and she is a great source of entertainment for him!








Overall he’s a wonderful baby – we love him so much!
