Ashten had his 6 Month Baby Well Visit and here are his stats:
Weight: 13lbs 1 1/2 oz (Under 5%)
Height: 26 3/4 inches (50%)
Head 18 inches (90%)
Yes, our Peanut is a little Peanut...Following in his brother's footsteps he is now off the charts on weight-- he is long and skinny!
(At 6 months Preston was 15lbs 31/2 oz (25%), 28 inches long(90%), 17 3/4 head (85%)We have just started cereal and food a little later with Ashten, closer to 6 months rather than 5 as with Preston so perhaps that is part of the difference in weight. Ashten is now enjoying his cereal, fruits, veggies and puffs...We are stuffing him as we did Preston per Dr orders!
Ashten has been rolling since before 4 months, started sitting alone better around 5 months and now at 6 months is really into army crawling...not a full fledge crawl but he gets from point a to b without too much problem when he wants to! Such a different kid than Preston who was fully crawling and pulling up at 6 months!
Ashten loves his excersaucer, jumpy's and sleeping in his own bed. He sleeps from 7:30-7:30 pretty consistently now with the occassional wake...and naps twice a day for a good 2-4 hours usually...Ashten is a better sleeper than P was at this point...Preston was going down 8-7 and then barely ever napping throughout the day...and usually not in his crib as Ashten does. Both boys have always been put to bed awake though!
Ashten continues to be quite the hamm...and loves attention from everyone...He is a generally happy baby and loves to give his gummy grin...However it won't be gummy for long...his bottom two teeth have finally broken through...It was quite painful for the little guy and had much more problems with it than Preston but Preston also did not get teeth until much later...
It has been so much fun watching Ashten grow and I can't believe he is already 6 months!! It seems like yesterday he was our newborn...I love to see the difference in the boys (as you can tell above) not to compare of one better or worse than the other but rather to cherish their individual achievements...They truly are two quite different boys...but brothers nontheless that love each other very much...
