Westin is 6 months old!!

Height: 26 in

Weight: 17 lbs. 4 oz
Sleeping Pattern: Takes two 2 hour naps during the day, sleeps from 7pm til 7am each night, no lie!!!

Eating Habits: Half breastmilk, half formula. This past week I decided to start weaning him. He gets so distracted during the day while nursing, with 2 older brothers around there is too much going on so I got sick of trying to wrestle a lion to nurse. I'm happy and so blessed to say for 6 straight months all he had was breastmilk. I'm fining with backing down some. He eats fruits and vegetables twice a day.

Development: Grabs his toys on his play mat, sitting up with support, ROLLING OVER!! He's my rolly polly!!

Cuteness: Everything about this child is cute! He cracks up at everything and everyone. His brothers are the best thing he's ever seen. He LOVES him Momma and LOVES to play with his Daddy!!

Talking: He is cooing and trying to talk all the time - especially to his Daddy. :)

Favorites: Mr. Fan and his Mr. Giraffe are his best friends! He also just started enjoying books. He LOVES books.

Firsts: First formula bottles, first time to fall off furniture!
Concerns: Westin has started to get eczema bad so we are treated that right now.

A Day in the Life: Wakes up at 7am, smiling like a cutie pie. Change diaper, eats, plays for a little while. Around 8:30a he eats cereal and fruit, then naps for 2 hours. Eats again at 11a, plays a little bit more, goes down for afternoon nap around 1p. Wakes up at 3p starving, eats, plays til 5p, then always wants to eat again and takes a small 30 minute cat nap while Mommy finishes up dinner. He eats cereal and veggies around 6pm then has a bath and is asleep before 8pm each night.


Westin you continue to amaze us with all of your learning and cuteness. You are our light and we love you so much! Mommy sure wishes you would stop growing, I want you to stay my baby forever!!
