Six month Old Ollie

Weight-- 16 lbs

Height-- 26.5 inches

Medical Issues--  Same old reflux and food sensitivities although they both seem to be getting better slowly but surely.  He had roseola last week.  That wasn't fun.  He also seems to be teething which also sucks.

Sleep-- Bwahahahahahahaha you notice the two week lapse between my last post and this one.  Yeah that is a direct result of Owl's sleep patterns.  They suck.  He goes down easy on his own around 8.  He sleeps well until 11ish.  You know just about the time I finally go to bed after Destructo fighting sleep for hours.  Then he wakes up and refuses to go back to sleep without eating.  Not just comfort nursing either.  He full on eats.  Then he goes easily back to sleep.  And wakes up around 1 to 2 AM and demands to eat again.  If I feed him, he goes right back to sleep.  If I refuse, he plays in his crib while whining and fussing long enough to keep me awake.  I eventually feed him out of exhaustion and then he goes to sleep.  He wakes again around four unless it is already four.  Then from 4-8 he sleeps great.  Any of my lovely readers have any suggestions?  I am not totally against cry it out but prefer him to be closer to a year.
He doesn't want to be a leaf and I don't want to wake up a million times a night

Clothes Size-- 6-9 months or 9 month stuff mainly although you fit in 12 month pretty well at the end of the month.

Diapers size-- He has moved up to the second snap rise setting on all but the biggest of his cloth diapers. I also am starting to double stuff his diapers as I stuff new ones.   In disposables, he is in a size three but we are going to be moving him up to a four next time I order diapers due to blow outs.

Diet-- All the boob milk and Zantac in the world.  He is eating solids really well and thus far he eats everything we let him try.  We are doing baby led weaning but taking it slower than we did with Destructo because of his food sensitivities to something I am eating.  So far so good.  He likes fruits and most veggies and chicken.  He is just eh on avocado but loves guacamole.  Only thing he hasn't liked thus far is eggs.

Baby Gear I Love-- 
Playskool Busy Poppin' Pals Toy
  Musical Toys MP-200 8-Inch Mini Rainmaker Shaker
  Fisher-Price Luv U Zoo Jumperoo

Milestones-- He is actually tolerating tummy time more and pushing up on his arms.  He can even inch worm a bit to reach for toys.  His fine motor skills are crazy good.  I have got to get this house cleaned up and more baby proofed soon.

Likes/Dislikes--  He likes eating, waking me up, his brother, father, and any chewy teething toys.  He dislikes waiting to eat, me sleeping, and his daddy's whiskers.

Things I Don't want to Forget--  How Oliver gets so angry when things don't fit in his mouth.  How he adores his big brother and no matter how crazy Destructo acts it cracks him up.  How much of a momma's boy Oliver is.  I don't want to forget how Ollie likes to hold onto my amber necklace while he nurses.  It is so sad how fast this first year is flying by.  My last baby is growing up way too quickly.
