Asher John at 6 months
8.7kg (19.4 lbs) - 80th percentile (decrease from previous month)
70.5 cm (27.75 in) in length -85th percentile (decrease from previous month)
??? - 100th+ percentile I am sure
Eating - Loves Loves eating time... continues to watch people when they eat and drink and started to pick up his own food and put into his mouth. He is eating squash, avocado, broccoli (see video below), carrots, pumpkin and gerber puffs.
Sleeping - Starting to create his nap schedule. He wakes anywhere from 6:30 to 7:30 and then goes back down around 9:30 for a big nap until 11pm. Stays awake until 2ish and then wakes around 5pm. They goes to bed for the night around 7:30. I thank God for good sleepers.
Sounds - Same noises.. goos and gaas and blows bubbles.. and loves to laugh.
Best Trait - starting to get a little more opinionated when he is tired, hungry or has a soiled diaper. I really think the best trait right now is he hates to be in a poopy diaper. If he poos and you don't clean him right away he will let you know. I love this trait bc maybe that means he will be easy to potty train... only time will tell.
Nick Name - Bubby (given to by Pierce... and it has stuck with all of us)
Firsts - Got his first tooth... and second... he was a tropper... I could tell they were coming in bc of the way the gum looked and he was fuzzy until you gave him something to chew on. And sure enough shortly after his 6 mos. mark he got his first tooth and then 4 days later got another one. Bottom two front teeth are now in and ready to chew on something. He is still rolling from back to front but not front to back yet.
Updates - The next milestone will be sitting up and Asher is really trying to work on that. But he still likes to thrust himself backwards so that usually does not work really well when you are trying to learn to sit up.
Funnies: You have got to check out the video below of Asher laughing at his brother playing wii tennis. Pierce always has an audience when Asher is around... not sure if that is good or bad.
Big Brother: Always makes sure Asher is not going to get hurt. Also since Pierce has started to read pretty much anything, he loves to read to Asher at night.
Here are some pics of Asher at 6 mos... he is getting so big.
