Preston 6 Months

2016-03-16 14.57.56

I can’t believe that this cutie is 6 months already!!!  It’s gone by so fast, but I can’t imagine our life without him.  He is still so snuggly, which I love! Just this morning he woke up so Kenny brought him into our bed and I just snuggled him and we both fell back asleep.  It was the best!  He’s been fussy this past week which we found out was because he has an ear infection.  Lucy never had one, so this is the first one I’ve dealt with, but all things considered he’s still been pretty good.  He’s growing so much!  He now weighs 15 lbs 14 oz, and is 26.9″ tall.

He’s starting to teethe.  It looks like they’ll be coming in on the bottom.  He’s been eating and chewing on everything, including those cute toes.

He’s been rolling from his tummy to his back, he doesn’t like to stay on his tummy for very long.  He can roll from his back to his tummy, but doesn’t do it too often.  He’s getting better at reaching things that are out of reach.  I’m starting to have flashes of all the things we need to baby proof.

It’s been so nice having better weather, we’ve been able to get outside.  He’s been in a swing a couple of times now, but seems kind of indifferent. He’d rather just watch Lucy.

Lucy is still definitely Preston’s favorite person.  The other night he was awake and really fussy and I seriously considered waking up Lucy to have her help calm him down.  I didn’t, and he did eventually calm down, but I bet she would have sped it up.  They play pretty good together, hope it stays that way!

He still eats about the same amount – about half of a container of baby food.  We still have to feed him things that will help him poop like prunes and pears.  He likes the sweet stuff!  I also got him a mesh feeder thing so he can start chewing on fruits and he really likes that, especially with teething.  Also he has the cutest hair that sticks straight up, I love it!

He likes his toys, but he really likes being held too. Sometimes he has a hard time deciding what he wants.  He’s really been enjoying the bouncer we borrowed from the Pratt’s.  He definitely has more upper body control than Lucy had at his age.  I think probably within about a month he’ll be sitting up, but we’ll see.

This is our new favorite app, face swapping is hilarious with a baby.  His cute face looks so weird on ours! I especially like the drool. He’s pretty cute, and we’re glad he’s ours!  I’ll end with a pic of his big beautiful blue eyes.

    Haha, so cute! I love that Lucy and Preston are such good buddies. She’s so sweet! My kids miss her. We need to get together sometime. And those face swaps are hilariously terrifying. Haha, so good.
