Six Months

We turned 6 months and things sure have changed in the last month. Our little guy is so wiggly. He loves to move. It was a lot harder this month to get a standard photo than in previous months

We are still sleeping through the night. He is still napping well, however his evening cat nap may be on the way out. Some nights he needs it and other nights he doesn't. He did have two days last week that he decided 5:30 am was the new wake up time. Luckily he worked it out and we are back to the 7:45 am wake up time. 

If you look closely in the picture above, you can see a string of drool. The drool is still happening in large quantities and no teeth yet! Wills' diet changed pretty significantly this month. After a very difficult road with breastfeeding and only actually being able to keep up with his needs for about two days, I started exclusively pumping. He was getting half breast milk and half formula until about two weeks ago. I cut back on the number of times I was pumping (I had been doing it 8 times a day) and as I did this, my supply dropped even lower. It was finally so low, that it just wasn't worth the effort any more, so last week Wills had his last bottle of breast milk and is now a formula baby. We also started solids two weeks ago. We try a new food every three days. So far he has had avocado, green beans, pears, and butternut squash. The first bite of any new food catches him by surprise, but he always finishes it!
