Justin at 6 Months–HALF a year!

What? Eek! My infant is no longer an infant? I love it for him but my body shape/size isn’t quite there yet.

Anyway, I’m so excited for Justin!

Is saying “mama”. Started a couple of weeks ago but now seems to say it deliberately (yeah, I know he doesn’t associate me with his mama yet – but he will!). The day he turned 6 months he also said “ba” and often makes “L” sounds.

Is very ticklish, laughable and sweet.

Had oatmeal (very first food) today. Did pretty good but made some pretty funny faces!


My mom made this cute little bubble and I LOVE it!!!

He has the sweetest, kindest demeanor. Justin seems to study people, faces and things. Grabs his feet often, trying to put them in his mouth. I don’t think he’s flexible enough to get them in his mouth like he would like. Loves laying on his playmat, still rolling from belly to back, is becoming more tolerable of tummy time but often plays with his toys while lying on his side.

Loves people. Justin gets very excited (kicking his legs, waving his arms) when someone comes near him. He has also begun to reach for people. Earlier this month we were at a graduation celebration for one of Goli’s daughters. I was holding Justin and a friend of mine, Karen, who had not seen Justin for at least a couple of months, walked up. With his arms reaching toward her, Karen took him from me. It was the first time he has reached for someone and now does it often.

Updated Stats:

Height: 27.4 inches (80%)

Weight: 17.5 pounds (50%)

Head: 16.3 (5%)

He is wearing 6-9 month clothes with a few 12 month clothes (that run small). He should be in size 3 diapers but I have about half a pack left and am trying not to waste them. He also is wearing gdiapers in size Medium. I need new liners for the gdiapers so he doesn’t wear them as much as he should!

I can see how sweet he is- precious, pretty boy. I LOVE that picture of his hands close up- that will make you cry one day. :)
