At 6 months Luke weighed 19 lb 14 oz and was 26.5 inches long. Still a bit on the short chubby side, but that's ok... we love the chub! He was a champ with the shots and only cried for about 15 seconds.
This little guy is seriously a disposal of food. I would say garbage disposal...but that implies we feed our baby garbage. Not the case. He does eat everything he's given though, including but not limited to:
Squash, zucchini, broccoli, avocado, carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, green beans, apples, mangos, pears, peaches, bananas, and cantaloupe. We will be starting meats in month 7. Stay tuned...
Lots of new tricks were learned this month. Luke is now getting himself to a pretty spectacular plank position, and just a week or two ago learned to get himself into a sitting position. Despite this being very fun and useful during waking hours and play time...it can be quite frustrating at 2am. Nevertheless, we are thrilled to be able to watch our little boy grow and learn new things on his own. We clap and cheer like proud dorky parents.
Towards the beginning of the month, we had a great week long visit from Grandma Barker. It was great to see her and Luke really enjoyed spending time with his Grandma!
Since the fall season is upon us, we took the bean up to Apple Hill so that we could get the mandatory baby pumpkin patch pictures.
We also got to dress up the bean as a little monkey for some pre-Halloween fun. We attended a trunk or treat and he did great. Of course on actual Halloween, he was asleep before the trick or treating really even started...but that's ok. He made the cutest little monkey!
We are looking forward to what month 7 will bring!
