Ollie is 6 months old today!

This was Ollie the day he was born. What a change! Ollie has gotten to be such a BIG boy! Today he is 6 months old. Time is just flying by and he is growing up so fast. His favorite people are his daddy and Thomas, although he loves mommy too.

At 6 months old he:

  • Can scoot backwards and in circles
  • Is able to sit up unsupported
  • Loves to touch his toes
  • Is a yeller, he loves to screech and squeal at the top of his lungs in a very high pitch
  • Smiles when a familiar face walks in the room
  • Wears size 12-18 month and 18-24 month size clothing
  • He wears size 3 huggies diapers but only because I am trying to use up the big box we have--he should be in a size 4!
  • Is very long and lean, but his thighs are chubby chubby chubby!
  • Has size 3 feet but never wears shoes or socks
  • Hates the bottle and refuses to take a pacifier
  • Cries when someone leaves the room
  • Loves to eat baby food and has ate rice cereal, carrots, bananas, peas, and applesauce
  • Has one front bottom tooth in and the other front bottom tooth is almost there
  • Loves his jumperoo and likes to "stand" with help
  • Enjoys peekaboo and row row your boat
  • Does not sleep through the night and mostly cosleeps
  • Puts everything in his mouth
  • Is very fussy at night and hard to sooth--he fights his sleep a lot
  • Has started to "talk" and "sing" and can say the syllables DA, DEE, and GA and GU
  • Brent also thinks he might have heard him say "Daddy" although I have not heard it and am holding out hope for his first word to be "momma" or "mommy" :-)
  • Loves to play in the grass and go for walks in the stroller
  • Has favorite toys now, the two big ones being his lion and rattle
  • Loves meeting new people and "flirting"
  • Is attached to his fleece blankie and won't sleep well without it even though its summertime
  • Wants to be held all the time and loves to cuddle
