James is growing into such a big happy boy. He weighs 16 lbs 8.5 oz, and is only in the 31% for weight. He is nice and tall at 27.25" (80%) and his head is nice and round at 17.75" (84%). Such a tall boy! He is touching things and grabbing things easily now, so now we have to be aware of what is in his reach. He's still not rolling very well, but that's okay, because he prefers to sit or stand (with help) anyway. ;)
He is eating quite well, still breast milk, of course, but also sweet potatoes, carrots, oatmeal, rice cereal, peas (he likes them a little better), avocado, pears, applesauce and bananas. This week I might introduce mangoes and squash. We'll see how he likes it.
He is back to waking up a few times a night, and I will feed him around 4:00 am most nights. These days he'll wake up for the day between 7:00 and 8:00 and take two naps during the day. When he's awake he's happy and wonderful. And getting so big!
I'm in love with his dark blue eyes. First photo below needs to be clicked on so you can see just how pretty they are!
And isn't this series too funny? James looks right over Wolfy's head at one month, three months and six months.
And, lastly, I have two videos. The first one isn't anything special, but it shows how pretty James's eyes are, and he gives a few happy sequels as I try to entice giggles out of him.
And second, what do you get when you add horrible lighting, a messy unmade bed, a half dressed baby, and me? The most ADORABLE giggles ever. Sorry about the lack of quality on this, but you'll have to trust me and watch anyway. James is too cute.
