Ant 6months

Age: 6month
Weight: 14lbs 11oz (25th percentile)
Height: 25 3/4in
Eating: Nursing full-time when I am home. I am back to work but on weekend he is a 100% breastfeed baby. We have also started some solids.
New Tricks: Rolling over both ways and he loves to stand up (with help). He is also sitting up.
Favorite Toy: Has to be his letter spinner. He spins it to hear Animal sounds and letters.
Sleep: He isn't napping as much but he gets at least 2 30min to hr naps in.
I can't believe we have reached the halfway mark to a year. It is just absolutely amazing how fast they grow. Ant is doing new things everyday. My first day back to work I came home and I walk in to Ant saying "Mama." It was very exciting and made going to work the next day even harder.
On Thursday we had our 6month check up and I was worried his Ped wouldn't be happy with his weight gain. Well I was WRONG...he has jumped from the 10th percentile to the 25th. This was such relief.
Our biggest milestone is nursing full-time (when I am home). Ok I think that is enough bragging. Well almost...
Warning this is a mommy bragging about her baby. We just have so many awesome pictures and I wanted to share them with you.

Don't they all look so much a like?

We think this one is funny. I think the lady at the picture place thought we were crazy to get copies of this on.
He is just way too cute!

Me and my boy!

I am just like my daddy!

I am teething!

I love naked baby!


Ok I am done bragging


  1. what fantastic pictures!!
    so glad you can breastfeed 100% while you were home. what a great accomplishment!

  2. It sounds to me that his weight is just fine! When Noah was 25.5 inches (at 3 months old... at 5 months old he was 28 inches!) he weighed 14.5 lbs, so almost exactly like Ant (strangely though, Noah LOOKED chubbier than Ant does now). And for "weight for height" that's 25th percentile. Ant is short for his age, so it makes sense that he's not going to weigh a ton!

    I'm happy for you that you get to breastfeed exclusively when you're home. Ant looks like a happy baby!

  3. I absolutely love the pictures. They all turned out very well :) And the video is precious. Glad you are all doing well.

  4. Great pictures.

    I bet they were hard to choose which ones you wanted to keep.
