It seems Walt keeps hitting milestone birthdays when I get back in town from business trips. This past Friday was no different. I was gone to San Francisco for one day (see post), and got to come home to a rambunctious little six-month old! We see Dr. G on Tues to get all his physical stats, but here’s a quick recap of the Munka at six months:
Lovin’ from Dad
Fun with Mom
What a little laugher! He is a giggle machine especially when Chris tickles his belly or when mom pretends to drop him.
We are most definitely teething. He has two teeth on the bottom that are almost all the way through (there’s no doubt now!). He is also cutting an incisor on top. Kinda like a vampire… and half-vampire.
Walt is moments away from sitting on his own. He can sit very well on his own, but occasionally teeters while grabbing a toy and makes me real nervous!
He is a jumping machine! He now has a little bouncy seat and an activity center. He bounces happily and literally runs circles in the activity center. He is all boy!
Walt says “dadadadadadada”… normally this is when he’s tired and his teeth hurt, but just lately he’s started to babble it when he’s content. I don’t think he’s made the connection that he’s actually saying “dada” as in daddy…
He easily wears size 9 month clothes and size 3 diapers.
I’ve noticed in the past month he has FINALLY started to fill outwards a bit more. Walt has always been long and lean and I’ve been desperate for more rolls in his legs and arms. Now I’m getting them 🙂
We’ll find out on Tues, but I think he’s close to 18 lbs. I have no idea on height. Not even a good guess.
Walt eats some solid food, but not very consistently (b/c its hard work for mom and dad, and sometimes we just skip it). He doesn’t really love or hate any food yet. He’s had rice cereal, green beans, sweet potatoes, green peas, carrots, squash, and bananas. Oh, and avocado. Those he did hate.
