Ezra John: 6 Months

It's hard to believe that I have been a full time mother for the last six months. It seems like the blink of an eye, yet the longest six months of my life. So much has changed, so many new memories. So much joy and happiness a baby brings! My husband and I often make comments about how we can't imagine life with Ezra. It's crazy how someone so small can be such a huge part of your life!

At six months, Ezra is a happy, healthy, very chubby little guy! He is 21 lbs, 5 oz and 25 inches long. Short and chubby. ;) He still hasn't cut a tooth, but continues to teethe. It doesn't seem to bother him much, and besides a lot of drool and constantly chewing, he doesn't react much to it.

We started on solids right around six months, and he has had sweet potatoes, peas, carrots, squash, applesauce, pears, watermelon, grapes, and bananas, as well as many other tastes of food! His favorites so far are sweet potatoes and pears. He also really likes Plum Organics veggie puffs and rice rusks.

Ezra is sitting very well now, and he often sits and plays with toys for long periods of time without tipping over. He also rolls from his tummy to his back and occasionally his back to his tummy. He almost always sleeps on his side now.

He has a pretty consistent schedule for sleeping these days, which is a blessing for all of us! He goes to bed at right about eight every evening, sleeps until four, nurses, and goes back down until between six and seven. He still takes at least one long, 2 + hour nap a day and a couple other short naps.

He still plays a lot with his favorite toys, links, his elephant and teething toys, and really enjoys being in the exersaucer.
