Raphael - 6 Months

I can't believe Raphael is now 6 months old! My plan was to make an update every month on the blog, but I think I'm going to make updates every couple of months.

Size: Raphael is continuing to gain weight. We were taking him every two weeks or so for weight checks. His doctor was so happy with his latest weight check. He is now 13 pounds and his length/height is 24.5 in. Raphael is wearing 3-6 months clothing and is in size 2 diapers.

Breastfeeding: Breastfeeding is still going well and it's still Raphael's primary source of food. He still gets two bottles of fortified breastmilk. We also started solids! Raphael has tried baby cereal, applesauce, and banana (baby food).

Sleep: Raphael is still sleeping more at night, but he does wake up at least once during the night. I am also still pumping at night.

Loves: He still loves bath time. He loves playing with his toys and brothers. We bought Raphael the Fisher Price Sit Me Up Floor Seat and he likes it. It's one of my favorite baby purchases.

Dislikes: He still dislikes the car seat and not being in motion. He hates when we take too long to feed him.

Things I Want To Remember:

  • We started solids! We tried baby cereal, applesauce, and bananas.
  • The face he made when he tried baby food for the first time.
  • He is babbling and cooing even more!
  • His first Fall and Halloween event! We went to his brothers' fall festival and we had a blast. 
  • His costume is Max from Where the Wild Things Are.

Thanks for visiting!

Until next time...
