Bennett | 6 Months

Happy 1/2 birthday Bennett Tucker! It's really hard to believe that six months have already passed. You are such an incredibly happy baby and we are so thankful for you. We have had a fun month and I can't wait to see what the rest of the summer brings. 

Weight/Height: Bennett goes to the doctor next week but at his last appointment (a little over 5 months old) he was 17 lbs 

Hair: Bennett had his first hair cut this month!

Eyes: The prettiest blue eyes I ever did see : )

Clothes: 6-9 months in shirts and 3-6 in pants/shorts. He is starting to need more 9 month stuff.

Diapers: Size 2

Sleeping: Ugh. Sleep was pretty rough this month. Bennett had a terrible cold for two weeks and that had him waking up in the middle of the night with a stuffy nose. He usually went right back to sleep when we went in to give him his paci but it was still pretty frustrating. He also decided his new wakeup time is 6:00am instead of 7:00! 

Likes: Seeing his bottle! I seriously need to record him when I go to the fridge to get his bottle out..he freaks! He also likes going on stroller rides and playing in his Jumperoo. He has also started sitting up and seems to really like doing that and playing with the dogs. We played in his baby pool a few times this month and he loved splashing in the water.

Dislikes: Same old, same old...being hungry, being hot, & being tired. Really though he is the happiest baby!

Eating: Here is a sample of Bennett's eating schedule lately...

7:00 am- 7.5 oz bottle
8:30am- jar of fruit with rice cereal
10:30- 7.5 oz bottle
11:30am- 1/2 jar of fruits, 1/2 jar of veggies 
3:00pm- 7.5 oz bottle
4:00pm- 1/2 jar of fruits, 1/2 jar of veggies
7:30 7.5 oz bottle

Milestones: Bennett is consistently rolling over forwards and backwards and started sitting up. He can sit up unassisted for a pretty long time. He will sometimes fall back if he gets too excited but overall I think we can definitely say we have an official sitter! He has been trying SO hard to crawl. He does his best practice in his crib when he should be sleeping ; )

Baby items we can't live without: If you follow me on Instagram you know we can't get enough of Bennett's monkey pool! He would sit in there all day.. I need to get some little toys for him to play with in there. Also still loving the Fisher Price Jumperoo (similar here)! We also used our Pop 'n Play a lot outside. I love it because it has the big cover to protect him from the sun. And of course Bennett is teething like crazy so he has not been able to get enough of his teething rings.
