Will got sick for the first time. Around September 2, 2011 Will started getting sick. He had his shots several days prior, so I think it may be related. It started with a runny nose, then he was coughing a bit. He also sounded pretty hoarse when he cried. He was super fussy and cried constantly. I must have caught the same thing because I also had runny nose and really sore throat.
Cry-out Method . It helped SO much. It is so nice having Will be asleep by 9pm so I can have an hour or two to myself to do what I need/wish.
When we try to strap Will into his car seat, he will arch his back so that the straps wont fit. While it can be frustrating, it makes me laugh every time.
He is definitely getting more curious. He loves to grab things and study them. He'll hold it in one hand, then pass it to the other. Though eventually, everything ends up in his mouth, including his books.
Will went swinging at the park for the first time this month. I was a little hesitant because I figured he'd be way too small, but after padding him with a blanket, he loved it! He was so content and happy to just sit there and swing. Also notice in the picture that he enjoyed eating his blanket the entire time.
His hair seems to be coming in more and more. He fell asleep in my arms the other day, his head was sweaty, so I had a little fun with his hair.
While he still fits in his 3-6 month clothes, they are definitely getting pretty snug and I doubt that he will be able to wear them much longer.
He can touch the floor in his jumper, barely. But he still hasn't got the concept down of bouncing. He is getting more interested in the toys around him, but he still doesn't like sitting in it for very long.
He grew out of his personal bath, so I have started giving him baths in the big one. I'll just fill the tub up with 2-3 inches of water and lay him down in it. He LOVES it. The first time, he just kicked and laughed for about 15 minutes. Every night, he continues to love bath time and will enjoy the water until I pull him out.
No matter how good I swaddle him, he can somehow manage to slowly move his hands up to his mouth and out of the blanket.
Will hates tummy time. In fact, it is impossible to make him have tummy time because every time I put him on his stomach, he'll roll over as quickly as possible. I was trying to take some pictures of him on his stomach and I had to hold him down in order to prevent him from rolling. He didn't like it at all.
|Notice the giant tear rolling down his nose.|
|Still upset that I forced him on his stomach|
I can't believe he will be half a year old next month. For some reason, that sounds so much older. He really is a good baby most of the time and we love him more every day.
