Happy first half birthday, Fox!
Oh wow, 6 months. I can't believe it has been 6 months since I held this little cutie for the first time. Emotions, emotions, emotions, sentimental feelings, I can't believe how little you used to be, reminiscing, old photos, memories, emotions, emotions...
...ok, I think I got it all out. Now onto how cool this kid is right now.
Fox had his six month appointment yesterday and took it like a champ (as usual). Yes he wet his diaper when he saw the nurse come in, and of course he screamed when she gave him 4 shots to his thighs, but he was back to his calm and collected self before she even left the room. He quickly celebrated by rolling all over the table and tearing up all of the table's paper.
At six months, Fox is 26.5" long (50%), weighs 14 lbs 3oz (10%), and has a head circumference of 16.75" (25%). He's always been on the skinny side (just like mom and dad), but I'm thinking he'll finally start bulking up in the next few weeks as we start him out on solids. As excited as I am to start making him new foods, I am dreading the effects it will leave on his diapers -But more on that when the time comes. As for now, Fox is basically just wowing us left and right. This little guy is sooo close to crawling. He scoots all over the place -now if he could only learn to scoot forward instead of backwards. Along with the scooting, a new skill he just busted out this week is to sit up! He just did it on his own one night while Cam was watching him. It was such fun news to come home to:) Fox is also now in size 3 diapers, making purring noises with his uvula all of the time, and doing push ups like a maniac. He also loves to grab anything within reach, drop it, grab it, drop it, grab it, drop it, and grab it for as long as we let him repeat this new game for him. My favorite though, is to enter his room in the mornings to get him up, only to find him rolling around and chatting/giggling to himself in his crib. I love that he is just as entertained by himself as we are.
