William had his 6 month check-up today and weighed in at exactly 20 pounds (75th) and 27.5 inches long (75th). He is such a little wiggle worm these days rolling all over the floor and has just started trying to scoot forward. He will get on all fours and just rock back and forth! He also loves to jump...all the time!! I've been working with him to sit by himself for longer than a few mins. before rolling to his side so he can fully sit up without by supervision. He has very good hand/eye coordination and I just started teaching him the sign for "more" during his feedings and "milk". Those were 2 of Nolan's favorites! William has also started making his m sounds and is trying to say either mama or milk. Nolan began with his d sounds and said dada when he was 7.5 mths old. He didn't really say mama until he was a year old. William is going to be very outgoing like his brother because he's such a social baby always giggling, cooing, smiling and reaching for objects. As soon as William starts crawling...I'm really going to have my hands full ;)
Tonight we're starting baby boot camp. William is still waking 1 to 2 times during the night to nurse out of habit. It's a horrible cycle...one that leaves me exhausted most mornings and never fully rested. I have to start by trimming those feedings during the night by 2 mins a night until he gets no milk and just the paci and lovie. Pray it goes well....I'm so ready for him to sleep through the night again!!
