We dropped his midnight dream feeding for good and he now sleeps a solid 10-12 hours. He goes to bed at 9:00pm and wakes up anywhere from 7:45 - 9:00 am. That makes for one happy mama. He sits on his hands and knees and does a little rocking before falling down, he says baba, rara and wawa, as well as knows his name!
He has really gotten independent and frustrated when he can't do something himself. Sometimes, those whines just kill me, but it's amazing to watch him figure things out on his own. He wakes up super happy every time and knows to just play in his crib until I come and get him. He LOVES rolling over and sitting up is his jam. EVERYTHING goes into this kids mouth so I have sanitizer wipes handy everywhere we go! He quickly jumped into size 3 diapers, and bath time is now the best thing in the world to this kid. I can't get enough of him.
We had his 6 month photo shoot which was so fun, he was adorable as always and Ill be posting all of those pics in a video coming soon! I have started Mommy Monday videos over on my youtube channel so make sure to check those out!
Below were a few of our must haves for his 6th month:
Canon Powershot - I can't express enough how thankful I am that I vlog everyday. I was so hesitant at first but being able to look back on these memories of Forrest growing is the most amazing gift ever. We LOVE this camera for vlogging, so much so that we will be getting a second one as a backup. It auto focuses in seconds, adjusts the lighting and is light and easy to carry! Overall its amazing and easy to use, while producing the high quality HD videos I post on youtube every day!
Boon Baby Bath Toys - Bath time is no longer spa time. Forrest is so excited for bath time, I'm willing to bet he'd jump in the water as fast as he can! He LOVES to splash and play. We are still in the 4 moms bath tub in the sink (purely selfish reasons, I don't want to bend down to wash him in the normal bath just yet). He sits up in the tub and loves playing with his toys. The best toys ever are these Boon Toys, they are colorful and have different textures that he just can't get enough of, they are also interchangeable and easy to clean.
Jumpin Joey Fill + Spill - This weird toy was a total gamble but Forrest can't get enough. The ears and tail or crunchy and the balls that fit in the pouch are just about the most mesmerizing thing to him. He loves playing "catch" and chewing on the balls. Its so cute to watch him learn!
Melissa + Doug Stacking Blocks - These are amazing. Simply put. Forrest LOVES when we stack them for him so that he can push them down, just so we can do it all over again for about a million times. He also loves to drum on them and loves even more, if you stuff them with toys for him to fish out. They are easy to clean up and store as well, which is a win in my book
Tommee Tippee Bibs - Now I know these say for milk feeding, and we got these as a shower gift and never used them because we never had a problem with messy feedings or spit up, but believe me when I tell you I TRIED EVERYTHING, when we started solids. Cute plastic animal bibs, silicon feeding bibs, and everything else under the sun. When I saw these in his drawer with tags still attached, I had to just try them. Well, they are the ONLY bib that Forrest doesn't try to eat and play with during feeding time. Which means, less mess for me and the babes. I love these bibs and better yet? I just throw them in the washer instead of hand wash like I had to with the other bibs!
Bear Security Blanket with Clip - Why I took so long to get one of these? Ill never know. This has been a heaven send! We went to Carter's and I saw these cute blankies with pacifier clips... it hands down has made nap time better than ever. Forrest sleeps with the soft plush bear and blanket and knows that it has a pacifier clipped to it. When he drops it and wakes up a few hours later to look for it, he grabs the bear and all is good! I want to get one more since Forrest likes to sleep with at least 100 pacifiers at a time (more like 5 but you get the drift) I figured having another one for him to grab at in his crib, wouldn't hurt.
