6 Month Update

Caelum was 6 months old 3 days ago and it seems he has changed a lot in the last month. 

New things learned: He can now hold himself up and look around when he is on his belly. He can roll over. He can pick up things and put them in his mouth, like his soother. His legs are getting stronger and he’s able to move a lot more in his walker. He is trying to crawl but still hasn’t mastered it just yet.

Eating: He has been eating solids since he was 4 months old but now he is eating a bigger variety of foods. I can give him food in his hand, like baby crisps and rice cakes and he will eat them himself without any trouble.

Sleeping: He has always been a great sleeper but now he’s even better. He used to sleep from 6pm to 5/6 am but in the last 2 weeks he is going to sleep at 8 or 9 and waking at 7 or 8 in the morning so he is getting much better. He is also getting better at self soothing at night. He doesn’t sleep much during the day, he naps for 20-30 minutes in the morning and he might have one long nap in the afternoon (30-90 minutes). Some days he may only nap once a day and he can get quite cranky. It is a lot harder to settle him to sleep during the day.

Overall, he’s doing great. Hopefully he will be sitting up and have a tooth or two by next month!
