6 Months

What a surprise, I am late again! I had it all planned I would write this as soon as I took Hayes to his 6 month appointment, but then once again, time got away from me.

Stats: At his Dr appointment Hayes was 28 1/4 " even though when we measured him at home he was 29 1/4". Whatever. He weighed 19 lbs 7 ounces. The nurse said both were well over 95%.

Milestones: Hayes is scooting all over the place, he will get up on all fours and rock, but then loses balance and falls over. He is so close to sitting, He will sit for 10 to 20 seconds but then he gets distracted and tips over. He is still interested in everything. When you are carrying him, he has to be looking forward so he doesn't miss anything. My mom says that he nosy just like I was am.

Feeding: Hayes is still loving solid foods. He eats so much I can't believe it. He will also eat anything you put in his mouth. His Dr said that anything goes as fall as food, except honey, so we have been letting him try everything. He loved sucking on a dill pickle. Last night he sucked on a pineapple. He seems to love the flavor of everything. He still doesn't have any teeth, so he just has to suck on everything.

Behavior: I think the old nursery rhyme sums it up best "There was a little girl boy with a curl in the middle of his forehead, and when he was good he was very, very good, and when he was bad, he was horrid." Ha most of the time he is really good about entertaining himself, but if he is tired or hungry, watch out. It seems like he has been more clingy than normal, I'm not sure if he is teething or what, but man that gets tiring. It would be ok if he was willing to sit while being held, but no, he wants to walk around and look at stuff. Since he is a scooting fool, he is getting in to everything. He has an obsession with cords and wires. That kid can spot a wire from a mile away, and as soon as he gets to it, it goes directly into his mouth.

Sleep: It's still about 50/50 whether or not he sleeps through the night. He is on no schedule what so ever. His napping has no rhyme or reason, and whether not he sleeps through the night is hit or miss. I wonder is this is a look into his personality, as a non scheduled free spirit. haha.

Clothes: Hayes is outgrowing most of his 9 month clothes now. He wears anything from 9 months to 2T. He has outgrown almost all of his jammies. We just bought him some at Costco the other day, that are 2T! The sleeves are a little long, but lets hope he can wear it for awhile. He is still in size 4 diapers. They had a coupon at Costco for Huggies, so that's what he is wearing right now.

Nothing too exciting has been going on in our neck of the woods. We did take Hayes and "Uncle" Joe to Cabella's. It was so funny, we were standing outside looking at boats, and the salesman came up and told me I could put Hayes in the boat and let him run around if I wanted. I just laughed and told him he was only 6 months old, the guys mouth literally dropped open. haha I knew Hayes was big but I definitely don't think he looks like a toddler.
On Saturday for Father's Day, Chris and Joe went fishing at Baker Lake, and got soaked. Then all day Sunday Chris worked on boat motors. haha. He said he wanted a redo of his fishing trip, hopefully we will get some nice weather soon, so he can actually enjoy fishing.
