6 Months

Marshall turned 6 MONTHS last Sunday, February 21st. I can't believe it. He is doing so much now. He sits up on his own all the time and loves it! He can pull up from laying back some and is working on it all the time. He smiles all the time and giggles too. I don't really know of any time when he is just unhappy. He gets a little fussy when he is getting hungry and tired but that is about it. He is still teething but hasn't cut one yet. We took him on Wednesday for his 6 month checkup and he is doing great. The doctor checked him and the RSV is officially gone and he is very healthy.

6 month stats:

Weight: 19 pounds, 4 ounces 80 percentile

Height: 26 1/2 inches long 75 percentile

Head: 43 cm 45 percentile

Diapers: Size 3

Shoe size: 3 wide so we bought 4

Clothes: 6-9 months for now but changing quickly

He is now eating fruits and vegetables mainly stage 1 but we have been doing some stage 2 now - not giving all at one time but trying different things. He loves sweet potatoes, carrots and squash in the veggie group (not green beans or peas but we got some mixed vegetables baby food and it had peas in it and he ate it up). He has liked all the fruits - bananas, pears, applesauce, peaches, and mango. We have tried some mixed fruits too and loves them! He is now sitting in his high chair all the time. When we go shopping, he is in the shopping cart like a big boy. He does something new every day and changing so much! Can't believe it's been 6 months already!

In a jumper that Paxton let him borrow - he loves to be moving

In the shopping cart in Target...he loved just being able to look around
