6 Months

I cannot believe my baby is 6 months old. He gets spunkier everyday and loves to flirt. He is the loudest, squealiest(adjective. 1. An excessive amount of squealing and noise-making. 2. A made-up term that describes Kai to a T.), most talkative baby I have ever heard and I am a little scared for what the toddler years will bring.

Age: 6 months

Size: Clothing, 3-6 month
          Diapers, size 3

Eyes: Greyish, greenish, hazelish. I don't even know what color to call them. He went to the eye doctor today though and the doctor said there was very little pigment in his eyes so that's probably why they're still so grey. 

Hair: Brown

Sleeping: Any progress we had made last month quickly disappeared after our trip to FL. I have been a walking zombie lately, getting up time and time again throughout the night and we finally did the crib transition about a week ago which complicated things even further. I finally decided I was going to have to sleep train him since there was no way we could keep going like this but I was dreading having to do it. I decided to gently wean him off of sleeping with his pacifier first(which produced some crying in and of itself). Last night was his second night completely without the pacifier and the miracle of all miracles happened. He woke up once to eat around 2am(which is when he normally eats) and every time he woke up other than that he soothed himself back to sleep! This has literally never happened in his entire 6 month life. It doesn't sound like much but when you're used to getting up 10 times a night, only having to get out of bed once in the middle of the night feels like such a luxury. I'm not getting my hopes up since it was only one night but it was one night of major progress!

Eating: We're finally on solids! He will tolerate just about anything I've given him but he is much more a fan of fruits than vegetables. No surprise there given his mama's sweet tooth.


  • Getting tickled
  • Getting tossed in the air
  • This kid is obsessed with pounding his hands on computer keyboards. If he sees one anywhere near, he will do everything in his power to get his little hands on it and proceed to mess up anything you currently have running on your computer at the time. He does the same thing when I hold him near my piano.
