Kai is Six Months Old

I can't believe our boy is already six months old...it has gone so fast! He is doing so well and is just so much fun. He is sitting up really well and is great on his tummy...he is not crawling yet but does a lot of "swimming" motions like he would like to go somewhere. He is interested in everything and is constantly reaching for everything so he can put it in his mouth. Yesterday he had his six month doctors appointment. He had six shots and did so well. I think he was trying to be extra tough because Daddy was there. He cried less then he had the last two times. He continues to grow although he has moved down a little on the charts. They said this is normal for breast-fed babies because they are starting to be more interested in the world around them than food. That is definitely true with Kai.
Here are his "stats":
weight: 17lbs 1oz, 38% (he has gained exactly 10 lbs since he was born...and moved up 10%)
height: 26.5 inches, 49%

Here are some pictures I took of him today!

Adorable Pictures! Congrats Kai on turning 6 months old! I am operating under the assumption that boys are typically bigger than girls because Maya weighed 18 lbs 8 ounces at her 1 year appointment (just less than 1 lb bigger than Kai). She was also a little sick at the time so she may have gone up a little since then. In any case, it seems as though Kai is healthy and happy - which is so great to see.

Looking forward to seeing you all again soon!

Yay! I'm so happy to see some more posts, Tracy. And SO happy to hear that you cried for help! I'm learning the same thing and I have way less on my plate than you! Kai is amazing--what a doll! We miss you guys--Dutch is excited to see Kai again. Love you three.
