6 Month Update

Dear Titus,

At 6 months...

  • Your reflux came back in full force and you wouldn't eat more than 2oz at a time :( so we bumped you up to 30mg of Prevacid.
  • 3-6 month clothes fit you perfectly except your pants are still a little long.
  • You weigh about 18 pounds.
  • You are wearing size 3 diapers.
  • Your body is in the 50th percentile and your head is in the 70th, which means you're finally catching up to your head size!
  • Everyone says you have my eyes.
  • We started you on baby food and you love it! Green beans are your favorite but you hate peas. You eat 30oz of formula a day and two servings of baby food for lunch and dinner.
  • You sleep from 7:30pm-6:30am (11 hours).
  • You take naps at 8:30, 12:30, and 4:30, but some days you only take 2 long naps (which is awesome!)
  • When you get tired you flap your arms like a bird to keep yourself from falling asleep.
  • You LOVE flashing lights. Any toys with flashing lights mesmerize you.
  • Your new favorite games are:
  •  playing airplane with daddy. You love being "flown" in the air!
  • peek-a-boo. You love when someone holds you and I pop up from behind the couch!
  • You like watching Bosco and Lucy play catch in the backyard. You've even started trying to grab the puppies when they get close to you.
  • You are getting pretty good at sitting up as long as someone is spotting you (you can do it for 10 seconds on your own then you start to tip over). 
  • You roll over both ways and scoot all around your crib during the night.
  • You have a lot of blonde hair growing in and so you don't look like a ginger anymore. Yay!
  • You have moved out of your screaming phase and now you are growling. Every month is a new noise with you!
  • All the workers in the nursery say that you keep them entertained on Sunday mornings. You have the most personality of all the babies and talk and giggle the whole time!
  • As soon as I go to get you out of your crib you start giggling and no matter how early it is, I can't help but laugh at you! 
  • You have started coming at me with an open mouth and I think you are trying to give me kisses. My sweet boy :)

You are half a year old, sweet boy. I can't believe I get to wake up to your smiling face everyday. You were dedicate this month and your daddy and I do not take that lightly. We pray for your salvation every day and plan to stick to our promise to raise you up in the light of the Lord. There is a story of a woman in the Old Testament named Hannah who prayed for years to have a baby. When Samuel was born she took him to the temple and dedicated him to the Lord, saying, "For this child I have prayed, and the Lord has granted my request" (1 Sam 1:27). We prayed for you, little man, and the Lord did not disappoint. 
We love you to the moon and back.
