Austin is now 6 months old and will actually be 7 months old next week! Time sure does fly! He was about 17lbs and 8oz and 26.5 inches at his check up. He has been enjoying new foods, from pears to avocado! I bought a hand held mixer so making food this time around is sooooo much easier! Yesterday I would have said that there was no sign of him crawling, but late last night he got up on his knees and he did today several times! Now, I know that crawling is still probably a month away or so, which is fine because I think he will be a terror (i love him!) He is so different than Logan, he grabs everything and anything in his radius. He doesn't want his own toys but only logans, especially the puzzles! He will get into everything when he does crawl! Austin is sleeping through the night which is awesome and he did that all by himself, but he barely sleeps during the day, which is really hard for me. Logan was so different! Nursing him was great in the beginning but something happened in August and he had a major nursing strike...like only eating 2 times a day!!! It lasted for almost a week so I took him in to the doc and of course he was fine. But with all that stress and him still not nursing right for another week, my milk dropped (despite all the things I was doing to help my milk stay up!) and I had a really hard time with all that. After some major praying and support from many people close to me, we became ok with the idea of changing to a bottle if he continued this way. Well, things got better with time and he started nursing again real good. Now again of course he is nursing funny, so with Mike's guidance, if things get to stressed out and frustrating we will switch to bottle. Both ways of feeding have great benefits and they both can fit our lifestyles. It just took some time for me to be ok with it all! He is just wanting to be a boy and be himself perhaps!!!
Enjoy the slideshow! We just had my sister Kelly visit and it was a great, relaxing and fun weekend! I wish she didn't have to go and I know that Logan didn't want her to go either! He was asking for her the day after she left!
