6 Months with Willy~Boy

Weight: a bit over 25"
Length/Height: just shy of 17 lbs.
New Talents & Milestones: William has CRAWLED, yes, you read that right, our little 6 month old baby has moved of his own volition, and that is cause for worry in this mama!  He has yet to repeat this stunt (thank goodness) but it's only a matter of time!  He's also been super busy babbling away with words that sound an awful lot like "daddy", "doggie", "Maggie", and several which could probably best be translated into Pterodactyl... or what I assume winged dinosaurs would sound like.
Likes: tummy time and rocking back and forward trying to crawl, similar to the video of the dancing chameleon below.

Dislikes: napping for longer than 20 minutes, sitting still to read stories (that doesn't happen much anymore, instead I read to him while he plays)
Clothes: sporting 6-9 month clothes, but not for long I fear!
Special Events: Christmas was loads of fun, although it was a sure fire way to wreak havoc on a baby's schedule!!!  We traveled to my cousin's house in New Brunswick just before Christmas and have an amazing time with family and came home equipped with a family set of crocheted sock monkey hats and happy memories.  On Christmas day my sister & her husband, and mother, father and brother in law all came to celebrate the day and enjoy Christmas dinner together.  William got lots of love from his family and it was nice to wake up in our owns beds on Christmas morning.
Sleep: What a roller coaster since Christmas!  We decided to stick to a very strict routine for the past week and it seems to be working.  The last two nights have been the most restful nights in months.  William has slept form 7:30 until 3, nursed, then slept from 3:30 until 7 am.... thank God!!!  He has been majorly overtired and I think it was due to all the changes in routine, a growth spurt, being on the verge of crawling & a whole slew of other developmental milestones, eating his first solids~avocado... Wow, no wonder the little man is overwhelmed, I'm overwhelmed just typing that!  I hope trends continue and we have a great little sleeper once more! (Fingers crossed, knocking on wood, you name it, I'm doing it!)
Looking Forward to: snowshoeing trips, spring... although it's still very far away (sigh)
Nicknames: Nugget, Willy~Monster, Peanut, Monster~Man, etc... 


One of my favorite things... William & Clementine, the best of friends. :)
