Six Months!

We visited Dr. W. yesterday morning and had a great check-up. I'd been worried about James' picky eating habits (shocking since he's a chunk, huh?) and his sleeping patterns and came away feeling a LOT better. We're starting to "cry it out" at night. Last night was actually fantastic, considering. We've spoiled him and swaddled him up since the first few weeks at home. We put him down (awake) last night unswaddled, as per Dr. W.'s instructions. He went to sleep after a few minutes (we did have to go in and give him his paci a few times). We hit a rough patch between 2-4 AM but I remained firm and didn't nurse him back to sleep. He slept until almost 10 AM! (I think he was just worn out from being awake on and off for two hours.) Hallelujah! We survived the first night!

You'll notice that he gained 2 pounds last month, but also 2 inches! He's (believe it or not) starting to slim up a tiny bit. He's in the 90th percentile for his weight AND height now. He's fine as long as those things align.

Yay! I LOVE a squishy baby! He's starting to look more like a big boy and less like a baby!
