Maxwell - Six Months

Maxwell has officially made it halfway through his first year of life, and pretty successfully we must say! Big milestones from this past month include rolling from back to tummy (although still not consistently) and sitting up. He has also discovered that his tongue can ALWAYS garner quite a reaction so he sticks it out ALL the time. Everything checked out well at the doctor today too with Maxwell measuring 26 inches (21.97%) and 17 pounds 8 ounces (49.38%). His brain keeps growing too with his head coming in at over the 98th percentile. He was given the green light to eat pretty much anything and everything with honey being the only no-no. We have yet to find a food he doesn't like so I'm sure he will be more than willing to try new things. All this food has resulted in the 6-9 month clothing being pulled out as his little belly just keeps growing and growing. He continues to enjoy games like Peek-a-Boo, and he absolutely loves tickles. We've heard true laughter this past month which is a wonderful sound. He enjoys pulling himself to a stand and he bounces with excitement sometimes so much that he almost bounces right off of Mom's lap. He is getting better at following a schedule and is taking three naps a day when allowed. He now has a bedtime around 7pm  (give or take), and although he is still not sleeping through the night, his 1-2 wakes are for just a quick feed and then he quickly falls back into dreamland. So much has happened during these first six months, and with some major milestones right around the corner we can't wait to see little Maxwell grow!
