Cohen :: 6 months ::

Happy 1/2 birthday, Cohen Finn!

I can not believe you joined our family 6 months! We absolutely love having you in our lives, Mr. Cohen!!! Couldn't imagine you not being here!

- You weigh around 13 1/2 lbs. You are an itty bitty thing! (We don't go for your 6 month check until March 12th)
- You are wearing 0-3 and 3-6. You are still in newborn shoes and sometimes a size 1 will work.
-You are in a size 2 diaper. I've slacked with cloth diapers and you haven't worn one for a few weeks.

-You sleep around 10-12 hours straight at night, majority of the time. You go to sleep around 8 and sleep until 6:30-8-30.
- You are a semi-good napper. You take a short morning nap, a good 2 hour nap in the afternoon and sometimes a cat nap in the evening.
- You now sleep in your crib in your own room and it has made your sleep schedule so much better! You like routine and do better when you get scheduled naps.

- A few days before you turned 6 months you started sitting unassisted really well. Before that, you had been tripod sitting but couldn't sit for long periods of time. Now you can sit for long periods.
- You do not like to be on your back and spend most of your time on your belly! You roll a lot but haven't rolled in a series much.

- You are not a fan of food. You love boobs and that is about it! We've tried cereal, bananas and applesauce and you occasionally will eat cereal and if we are lucky, banana's but you really have no desire to eat anything.
- You nurse about every 2 1/2 -4 hours still. No pacifier or thumb for you! Yay!

- You love attention - whether being held, talked to, played with - you love it.
- Your big sister loves you and asks about you constantly. She calls you Co or Cohen which sounds like towin. :)
- You started reaching for people just a few days ago! You did reach first for your momma! ;)

-You are generally a pretty happy baby as long as you have someone or something to entertain you. You wake up from your naps smiley!
- You love to be sitting or standing holding on to our fingers! Or you love jumping in your jumperoo.
- You also love to watch people and chew on fingers - or anything for that matter.
- You are now starting to laugh a lot more and louder! It's so cute to hear!

- No teeth yet, but you drool ALL the time so I'm sure teeth will be popping up soon!
- Your hair is starting to fill in on top but between that and your wrinkly forehead, we like to think you look like an old guy! A cute old guy, though!
- You've pretty much spent this whole month sick! Between a yucky cough and runny nose, I've dealt with more snot than I'd like. Luckily, it hasn't gone beyond that!

We love you sweet boy!
