6 Months Old

Our little man is 6 months old!

James has become quite a little chunky monkey lately. At his checkup today, he weighed in at 18 pounds 14.5 ounces. This puts him in the 75th percentile - up from the 50% at his last appointment and at 10% when he was a month old!

James is currently 26 inches tall and his head circumference is 46 cm. He is still mostly wearing size 3-6 month clothes, although his shorts are size 6-12 months in order to fit around his belly! He is wearing size 3 diapers and will be in those for awhile as they go up to 28 pounds.

As far as his developmental skills - he is right on track. He can grab toys now with both hands and he actually has quite a strong grip! He LOVES to sit up. He is quite sturdy and rarely topples over. He still loves to stand. He has finally discovered that he can jump in his jumperoo. He will jump for a few minutes straight and always gets the biggest grin on his face.

James has also been much more vocal lately. He makes the "da" sound a lot and when he puts it together to say "da da" Brian gets very excited. It is pretty cute. He also squeals when he is excited and makes a noise that we think is him laughing.

And most of all - he still loves to smile. He ALWAYS smiles at the pretty ladies and at practically anyone else who gives him attention. That smile can just melt my heart.
