You’ve been a little more fussy than usual this month. I couldn’t get any pictures without your fingers in your mouth, but no teeth have appeared yet. You’ve taken to solid foods like a pro, but that hasn’t done you any favors in the filling-your-diaper department and we’re stuffing you full of prunes to ease the discomfort.
You spent your first night away from us when daddy and I drove to Sheridan, WY to pick up a truck. Some would say it was a long way to go to get some peace and quiet, but we enjoyed it. Dinner (with wine!) and a full night of sleep. You did your best to give Grandpa and Grammie a run for their money by not taking your bottles or sleeping. You did eat lots though, and gave them plenty of cuddles.
You seem to be boycotting sleeping these days. You hardly nap and you are up two to four times a night. I’m sure you’re tired, but you have other ideas about how to spend your time.
It’s a good thing you make up for the lack of sleep with lots of giggles and silly faces. You love to be held and rocked and are most happy with mom these days. You must know that I have to go back to work soon. So we’re making the most of this time together. At 6 months, Caleb, you:
- roll over often
- love baths
- love to eat (oatmeal, acorn squash, apples, pears, and prunes)
- take one or two (short) naps a day
- fall asleep in the car
- weigh about 13 1/2 pounds
- are just starting to sit up
- grab on to everything you can reach
- love to listen to music
- love to grab your toes
- put up with a lot of love from Mason and Emma
Sometimes I still can’t believe you are ours. Another sweet boy. You are pure delight and we love you!
