I'm about two month behind on posting Crew's updates on the blog. Oops. I've tried to keep up with his weekly growth and firsts on my phone though! I also slacked and didn't take his "official" 6 month picture. #yolo
weight: about 22 lbs
clothes: mostly 12 months
diapers: size 3 in disposables and wearing OS cloth
hair color: Blonde...though every now and then it looks like it has a reddish tint to it.
eye color: blue-ish...seems to be turning green/brown like Will's eyes
eating: Breastfeeding, formula, yogurt, bananas, fruit and veggie puree
nicknames: Crewboo, Crewster, Crewby, boo boo, handsome, precious...basically just anything that comes out of our mouths
likes: (loves) baths, talking, smiling, laying on his belly, chewing on his hands/trying to stuff his whole fist in his mouth, bananas, being outside, going on walks, chewing on his toes, his Nana!
dislikes: being hungry, sleepy or getting his clothes changed
Crew's set up to sleep in his crib didn't last very long because it started wanting to roll to his belly. I was paranoid to actually let him sleep on his stomach though. I was scared he would bury his face into the sheet and not be able to breathe. Crew's always had strong neck muscles so I don't know why I let it worry me so. Anyway, Will finally tested out letting him sleep on his belly for a nap and we haven't looked back since!
We also went to Nashville this weekend to celebrate our 4 year anniversary. We LOVE going to Nashville for a quick weekend getaway. Crew came with us and he was perfect. No surprise! We got a hotel with a king size bed instead of taking the Pack n' Play and it was great. We really enjoyed meeting up with some friends in Franklin for lunch on Saturday and visiting a church in Chapel Hill on Sunday where Will's good friend is the Pastor. A great weekend overall!
On the 3 hour drive to Nashville, Crew found his feet! He chewed on them all weekend!
At 23 weeks, Crew started eating bananas out of the mesh feeder (which quickly got trashed because those things are IMPOSSIBLE to clean)! He loves it, but it makes such a mess. He also started sucking on his bottom lip and it is hilarious. It just makes his chubby cheeks stick even more and he looks like a little chipmunk!
This was a rough week and we thought he may be teething. He wasn't sleeping much during his naps and just was cranky this week. When I checked out the Wonder Weeks app, there was a storm cloud on this particular week so that theory may have some truth behind it!
He started sticking his tongue out all the time...just another funny thing he does!
(Here he is sucking on his lip like mentioned above)
He really started paying attention to the dogs this week. He laughs hysterically when Remi barks or growls (when playing). Guess he'll never be afraid of dogs!
He's also eating yogurt and mashed bananas all the time now!
We experienced sleep regression this week. I kept thinking he was teething...but still no teeth. It's been hard to get used to lack of sleep again after he had been sleeping all night!
He also stretched his time between feedings to 4 hours for the most part! Yay Crewboo!
Hopefully I'll get month 7 posted before he turns 8 months!!
