6 Months

6 monthsIvan was 6 months on Monday. We had our 6 month well visit at the Dr.’s office today and he received a good report. He is 16 lb and 10 oz., and is 27 inches long. This is nearly three pounds heavier and 2 inches longer than his last visit three months ago. This puts him in a lower percentile than he was three months ago for weight and height and indicates his growth has slowed down a bit but nothing to worry about.

He is rolling over as previously posted and is almost sitting up on his own. He topples over after about 20 seconds but is doing really well at balancing himself for little bits at a time and playing with his toys.

He’s a good baby and is sleeping well, eating well, and generally making us all smile. Owen is getting excited about his progress and is looking forward to the time that he can really play with him.

Over and Back Again

Ivan rolled over to his tummy for the first time today. He first rolled from his tummy to his back in April and has been all but rolling back to his tummy until now. I missed it of course. I was out mowing the yard and had left him on his play mat on his back. As I approached the living room windows with the lawnmower I decided to take a peek inside and see if he was still awake. He looked asleep but when I lifted Owen up to see we saw him moving and he looked over at us as if he was really confused by the picture in front of him. The next time around the house I peeked again and this time he was rolled over onto his tummy. Wow…that made me wonder if I would be able to find him when I was able to get back into the house. The third time around I checked one last time to see him soundly sleeping. So he is officially rolling over and back, and just a hair inside of 6 months.
