6 Months

Can you believe it?
I certainly cannot.

Weight - 16.9 lbs (39th percentile)
Length - 27.5 inches (85th percentile)


We received the go ahead to start solids. Our doctor said to start with all the vegetables first, so we chose sweet potatoes.

Before...
During...

After...
He wasn't quite sure what to think!
I think a few more times and he'll love it!


And finally, just because...


My sweet baby boy!

Oh, how I LOVE him!

Surprise Murder Mystery Party


Saturday night Dave and I attended a surprise 40th birthday party that just happened to be a murder mystery party. We had fun getting together outfits for our characters.

I played "Futura Teller" - a fortune teller who likes to give doom and gloom fortunes.

Dave played "Captain Jimmy Nixon" - an airplane pilot who is an environmentalist and teller of inappropriate jokes.

It was a fun time!

Stomach Sleeping

Warner is officially rolling all over the place. He had been rolling from his stomach to his back for awhile now, but he just mastered rolling from his back to his stomach this week. He loves it! Every time he does it he is so proud of himself!

Having a rolling child meant it was time to say adios to the swaddle. Last night was the first night we didn't use the swaddle and used a sleep sack instead (arms are free, but feet/legs are still inside). He actually did better than expected. I, on the other hand, was a nervous wreck.

You see Warner decided that with the freedom of the sleep sack he might as well go ahead and start sleeping on his stomach. I of course (thinking of SIDS) immediately repositioned him back on to his back. 2 minutes later --- he's back on his stomach. I definitely didn't get a good night's sleep last night worrying about him and repositioning him (mind you he was sound asleep and completely unphased by my craziness...).

The rational part of my brain tells me: He is fine. He is strong enough to roll over, to turn his head, to hold up his neck, his arms are free, etc. The mattress is just about as hard as they come. I have no bumpers or anything else in his crib. I slept on my stomach and I turned out just fine (after reading this I'm sure you are having your doubts)!

The first time mother part of my brain tells me: "Back to Sleep!" SIDS! All the bad stuff.

The question is; How can you keep a child from rolling over on to their stomachs ALL night long? I know the answer - you can't.

Help me to feel less crazy my blogging mamas!
