It’s just crazy to me that S is already 6 months old. It seems like just yesterday we were bringing him home from the hospital. We love our little guy like I can’t tell you. Every day brings new discoveries (hello, tongue! hello, voice!). He is sitting up really well at this point, though he can’t get into the sitting position on his own yet. We started rice cereal last Thursday, and tried banana on Sunday. He was not feeling it. I think we’re going for it again tomorrow. Next up: avocado! Guacamole for Mamas and avo for S! Yay!
We are starting to get desperate with the sleeping situation. It is just so bad. Even having him in the bed doesn’t really solve it as he wants to nurse constantly and I get very little sleep. We were at the pediatrician’s office yesterday because S has a little rash (was nothing serious), and he told us to “let him cry – no intervention.” No way I can do that. We let him cry last night for 10 minutes and he really started to get himself worked up (coughing, etc.) and I totally caved. I can’t handle hearing him get upset like that. However, we also can’t go much longer on no sleep. DW was in tears yesterday morning and she is like a rock usually. Where it’ll end, I don’t know. Sorry to bore you all with our sleep woes, but it’s where we are right now.
We go back to the ped on Friday for S’s 6 month appointment. Poor bug will not be happy with more shots. I’m so curious to see what he weighs. He seems so huge!
