6 Months-Sullivan

I completely skipped Sullivan's 5 month update.  Our lives have been a little crazy, to say the least.

Sullivan,
I am still trying to wrap my head about you being half a year old.  You are the sweetest baby and I want  you to stay that way forever.  We are in the midst of toddler tantrums every other minute, and I need you to stay my sweet Sully. Mommy may have a nervous breakdown if you turn into a terror.  You are somewhere around 25 lbs, and LONG.  Everyone comments on how big of a baby you are, and I have a feeling you are not going to stop growing anytime soon.  You are in 9 month clothes, and size 4 diapers....big boy.


Eating: We started you on food about a month ago.  Unlike your brother you love ALL the food.  Hudson wasn't much on baby food, but you love it.  We started with cereal and fruit for breakfast, and have moved through all the fruits and veggies.  You are getting it three times a day, and 4 OZ of formula every 2-3 hours.  I have a feeling we are never going to have a problem getting you to eat.  We still have to practically tie your brother down to get him to eat.




Sleep: It PAINS me that  I can no longer brag about your sleeping.  You have completely regressed, and I am having nightmares of when your brother was a baby,  To your defense, I think the move to Nana and paw paws has screwed you up.  You like you quiet space, and you are sharing a room with your brother who likes to watch TV before he goes to sleep.  I think teething has something to do with it too.  You are up sometimes every hour.  Some nights you will sleep from 8-6.  I just can't figure out if you are waking up out of hunger or habit.  I am really hoping once you have your new room it will be nice and quiet, and it will get better.  If not, sleep training is starting ASAP.  I NEED you to start sleeping again.  My sanity needs it as well.

Milestones: you FINALLY rolled over.  It was about two weeks ago.  You still don't do it a whole lot, but I know you will be on the move in no time.  I am in no rush.  You do not have any teeth yet, but I feel like one is going to come through any day.  You have all the signs.

Other: You still have the sweetest demeanor.  You smile ALL the time, and rarely fuss.  Unless you are hungry.   You took your first ride in the mule, and absolutely loved it.'


We also had a bit of scare with your lip turning blue.  I wasn't worried about you not being able to breath because it was just your bottom lip.  The only thing we can come up with is you sucked on your lip so hard you gave yourself a hickey. 


I am sure there are other things that have happened these last few months, but mommy has been running around like a crazy person and I can't come up with all of them.  Here are the few pics I snapped. I will be better next month about pictures and your post. 








Sullivan,
Thank you so much for being such a sweet baby.  You can change any one's day with your big smile.  You have so many people wrapped around your finger, especially mommy and daddy.  We love you so much, and can't wait to watch you grow!
