Ephram at Six months

Still not completley healthy this month. The chronic cough continued and we did another round of steroids as well as two different inhalers. So far so good and the cough has not returned since. The clinginess continued as well. This kiddo does not like to be any where but in your arms. Possibly because he is so snuggly, we hold him more than we should. We all (us, our nanny, our family) need to get better about letting him hang out on his own every now and then.

Ephram is fully in his room this month. His wake up time continues to improve and is now consistenlty between 6:30 and 7:30. Occasionally he has gone as late as 8:00. He is no longer being swaddled and he handled that change beautifully. He now sleeps in his sleep sacks. Wills still sleeps in his most nights too. We love the sleep sacks!

We had a check up with Dr. Smith, Ephrams's surgeon this month. Ephram's scar was still too thick for his liking, so he gave him another steroid shot. We go back six weeks from this appointment to have it checked again. Charles and I both think that his scar is a lot softer since this last shot. Hopefully we won't have to do it again.

Ephram started real food this month. He has had several vegetables and a few fruits. I am making the baby food again like I did with Wills. I have been slacking a little, so his options haven't been as varied. We are doing a better job of mixing his food up. I hope this will make him like things like soups and casseroles when he gets bigger. Wills won't eat either of those things and it makes me nuts.

Six Month Stats:
Weight: 19.2 lbs
Clothing Size: 6-9 months and some 9 months
Must Haves: Lillebaby carrier, bat with crinkly wings, big brother
3/31 Steroid shot
4/5 Big boy bath and no more swaddle
4/6 First food, avocado

Brothers side by side:

Wills                            Ephram

A couple Wills and Eprham interactions this month include: Ephram was crying in the back seat and Wills said "It's ok Ephram. We're almost home.". Wills has also started taking books in the car and we moved Ephram's car seat over right beside him, so Wills has been "reading" his books to Ephram in the car. Too precious!
