Time for Samuel’s monthly pictures!
Here’s a link to Month 1, and Month 2, Month 3, Month 4 and Month 5 in case you missed them! And here is a link to a page that I’ll be updating every month with all of the pictures together, so you can see them side by side!
So, Samuel’s six month birthday was a few weeks ago, but I hadn’t gotten around to editing his monthly pictures until yesterday. Whoops! But he is doing great. He’s still on the small side, clocking in at 24 inches tall, weighing 14.5 pounds, putting him beneath the 5th percentile for height and weight. He is eating solids like a champ, loves sweet potatoes, carrots, peas, applesauce, and oatmeal.

His colic seems to have subsided, and he’s a much happier boy, but when he is tired all bets are off and he turns into kind of a whiner. He melts down pretty easily. We’re working on getting longer naps. Currently he will only stay asleep for about 45 minutes at a stretch during the day, so he takes about 5-6 naps a day. It makes it a bit hard to be out and about, since he constantly is getting up and going down from naps. But nighttime sleep is getting better. He will typically sleep from 7:00pm-12:00 or 1:00am until he wakes up to eat again, and then usually is up again around 3:30 or so, then will sleep until 7:00am. We’re hoping now that he’s eating more during the day he will sleep longer at night.
He is the funniest little ham, he will turn very cheesy if he knows the camera is out. He’s also very ticklish, and always has a smile for people who stop to talk to him. Happy six month birthday, Samuel David!
