Grayson’s 6 Month Update

How are we already at the halfway point to one year old? It doesn’t even seem remotely possible!

Grayson had his 6 month appointment and did so well despite getting 4 shots. He is one tough little baby because he calms down so fast after the initial cry out from the poke of the needle. He grew a little bit from his last appointment but he is leveling off and is in the 45 percentile for weight and 90 percentile for height.

THE STATS:

Weight: 17 lbs
Height: 27.75 inches
Head Size: 17 inches
Clothes: 3-6 and some 6-9
Diapers: size 2

Grayson has had such a good month of firsts and one bad first. Let’s start with the bad. He had his first bad cold! It lasted over 3 weeks and he is still coughing and wheezing some. Thankfully not as much as he was! He did have some nights where he woke up in the night because he was so congested and coughed so much. I am very thankful that he is on the mend and sleeping through the night again.

Then he had some really big firsts this month like jumping in his Jumperoo for the first. He enjoyed just standing and playing with the toys at first, but now he is starting to understand that he can jump in it. He really enjoys bearing weight on his feet so he can stay happy in the Jumperoo for awhile before he gets bored or tired.

Grayson also visited his first pumpkin patch! He enjoyed being outside and checking out the sights from his stroller.

Grayson is drooling lots, but still no sign of a tooth yet. He is enjoying chewing on his fingers and toys for now. He has no interest in the pacifier at all. I’m glad because that is one less thing to keep track of.

Grayson has the sweetest smile and loves to make laughing and cute high pitched squeals right now. He really is just the sweetest and has the sweetest disposition. We are so grateful that he is so sweet and laid back. As the second child, he often gets drug along on adventures that are not necessarily for him, but he is so easy going.

I can’t wait to see what all he will learn next month.

  1. What a cutie with that big gummy smile!! Baby colds are the worst!!!

  2. So glad to hear that Grayson is getting over his first cold. (It’s been a tough year with sickness for us too. I feel like I’ve been battling a non-stop cold since Sept.) Also, how exciting that he’s starting to jump in his Jumperoo. The holidays are going to be so much fun this year–a lot of firsts!

  3. So cute! Sorry he had his first cold 🙁 Glad to hear he’s on the mend!!

  4. He is so adorable! Happy 6 months!

  5. Boo to baby colds. Those are the worst. I hate hearing my kids coughing. Glad to hear he’s feeling better though. I can’t believe it’s been six months already. I say this all the time, but that really did fly by. Grayson looks like such a happy, well-adjusted six month old 🙂
