6 Months Old!

 Axel is six months old!
Axel has been teething all month, but the poor guy doesn't have any teeth to show for it yet.  He has been taking it pretty well, but has been drooling all over the place.  Night times have been a little bit rough and I assume that is the reason why.  He also no longer sleeps with his arms swaddled and occasionally wakes himself when he starts swinging his arms around.
He has been introduced to a few more foods (apples, pears, carrots, and green beans).  We have also pretty much given up on finding a bottle he will take.  I started working a freelance job that has kept me away from him for 9-10 hours a day just a few times this month.  He ends up eating more baby food those days.  We mix it with breast milk and feed it to him with a spoon.  On those days he was willing to take about an ounce of milk from a bottle, but that's it.  He still managed to be pretty happy though.
I think he is getting close to figuring out the army crawl.  He is definitely strong enough and has moved himself a little bit in that position.  He mostly just rolls to get to what he wants at this point though.  Axel can sit on his own for short periods of time before the weight of his large head eventually topples him over.
Axel looks so big now.  He no longer looks very tiny in comparison to Pearl.  I can't believe he has already been with us for half of a year.  Time is flying!
Axel's Stats:
Length: 27.5" (84%)
Weight: 17 lbs 10.5 oz (52%)
Head Circumference: 18.27" (100%)
See how much he has grown!


  1. So cute! 6 months is such an awesome age. It's great to see how much they grow and change in such a short amount of time, isn't it?

  2. Aww! Such a fun milestone. I feel like things got so much easier after 6 months for us. You're halfway their Axel!

  3. So grown up and absolutely a snuggly little boy. :)
