Colton 6 Months Old

<Colton 6 Months Old

Yesterday was Colton's 6 month old birthday. I can't believe that my baby is already half a year old. Yeah, I know. I'm pitiful. He has changed so much in the past couple of months. He is definitely doing new things like sitting up more with only minimal falls. He has two new teeth. His first one popped through about a couple of weeks ago and the second one appeared Sunday night, while I was giving him a bath. He loves eating his baby food. He eats 3 Stage 2 size jars of baby food a day and he drinks a 5 ounce bottle on top of that. Last night for supper, he drank 4 ounces of milk and 2 Stage 2 jars of baby food. He was HUNGRY! Oh, one more thing. He drank out of his new sippy cup for the first time last night. He's had a dry cough for the past few days. Around midnight, he kept coughing. When I checked in on him, he was asleep, but I didn't think he was getting a restful sleep with the coughing. So, I gave him 2 ounces of Pear Juice in his sippy. He took to it without any problems. He drank it all up and went right back to sleep. I think it helped his cough because I didn't hear him as much after that. Dr. Lunsford said his lungs were clear and didn't see anything serious, so I'm just going to watch him close.

He had his 6 month appointment this afternoon. He is doing great! Currently, he is over 29" tall, 16 pounds and healthy as can be. According to the scale, he is off the chart. Dr. Lunsford said he is very tall for his age. {Proud mama moment} Colton did loose a little weight. About a month ago, I took him in for a mysterious rash and he weighed well over 16 pounds. If he did loose weight, it wasn't by much. I'm sure he'll make up for it.
