6 months

Our little tucker is now 6 months old!! Time is going way too fast! He is just so precious and has blessed our lives in so many ways. Here are some of the things he is up to these days:

  • eats about 5-6 oz. every 4-5 hours
  • naps 2-3 times a day
  • wearing size 4 diapers
  • wearing 12 month clothing
  • not sleeping very good (waking up about once or twice a night...due to tummy problems)
  • smiles all the time
  • loves to watch his brother play
  • does not like loud noises
  • seems to be quite the little mama's boy these days
  • is almost sitting up all by himself
  • rolling all around
  • likes to watch mickey mouse and gets really excited when he comes on the screen
  • has had some tummy issues, but with some new formula and acid reflux meds things seem to be getting better:)
  • had his first stomach virus
  • loves to grab everything, especially faces
  • has his first tooth breaking through on the bottom!
  • loves to grab and play with his feet and hands

    We also went for tucker's 6 month check-up today. All is good and he got his shots too. He was a champ and barely even cried, then went right to sleep in the car. However, since then he has been quite the fussy little thing! We can't wait for daddy to get home;) Here are tucker's stats:

  • weight: 20 lbs 6.5 oz. 92nd percentile
  • height: 26.5 inches 55th percentile
  • head circumference: 47 cm 99th percentile

    As I said before, Tucker has been having some tummy problems. He has been throwing up every night after his bottle and is up and fussy a lot of the night. He was displaying a lot of acid reflux symptoms so the doctor decided to try him on meds. And after some research and talking with friends we decided to start a new much more sensitive formula. We started it on tuesday afternoon and since then we haven't seen any more throw up and our happy little tucker is back! So we are keeping our fingers crossed and praying that this is the solution! Other than that, our little tucker is a happy, laid back little guy. He has really blessed our lives and we love having two little boys.

    Today is tucker's half birthday. So tonight we will be celebrating with a cake, a tradition we started with tripp. It seems like just yesterday that we were celebrating tripp's half birthday:) Time flies....just another reminder to enjoy every second and thank God for each new day he gives us! Here are some pictures...

Love and blessings,
