Micah is 6 months old! At his check-up last week, he was up to 16 lbs 7 oz (26th percentile) and 26 inches long (19th percentile). He was given a clean bill of health. We’re still battling cradle cap with him, but he’ll outgrow it eventually.
-Micah just started solid foods. He’s still working on his tongue coordination so maybe a teaspoon of food actually makes it to his stomach, but Alaina is amused watching him make a mess.
-While he’s now able to sit up on his own for short periods of time, he really prefers to stand up as much as possible- even when he’s not supposed to. :)
-Micah is now old enough to attend Alaina’s daycare, which makes dropping off and picking up the kids a lot easier. He of course picked up a cold by the end of his first week since he was being exposed to new germs. At first, he was only taking cat naps at daycare; he seems to finally be getting used to the new environment and started taking longer naps.
-He went to his first baseball game this month. When it went into extra innings, he gave up and zonked out in the baby carrier.
-He is generally a happy baby and melts our hearts with that grin of his. He’s become more vocal lately and squeals at his big sister’s antics.
Happy Half-Birthday, Micah!
