6 Month Update - Breakthrough!

6 Months Old

It's hard to believe that half a year has gone by since Ty came into this world. On one hand, it seems like yesterday; on the other, it feels like he has been a part of our family forever. He has brought us so much love and happiness over these past few months.

Sleeping: He still sleeps great; 11-12 hours per night with two naps (about 1-2 hours each) during the day.

Eating: like crazy! We have successfully made it through all of the stage 1 baby foods and are moving onto stage 2. He eats 36-40 ounces of breastmilk/formula per day plus three "meals."

Accomplishments: He transfers an object from one hand to the other and can sit up for a short period of time (before he falls forward)

Breakthrough: His two bottom teeth broke through last week! There was a lot of drool, but he did great.

Stats: He weighs 17lbs 14oz (60%) - he was in the 30% two months ago! His height is 27.5 inches (85%). The pediatrician couldn't believe how much he had grown!!!

This past weekend was absolutely gorgeous, so we decided to climb Stone Mountain. MJ made it all the way to the top by himself! Steve did carry him at a couple of the steep parts, but for the most part he did it solo. I carried Ty in the baby Bjorn, and he had a blast!! Here are some pics...
