Campbell | Six Months

Weight: Campbell had a doctor check up yesterday and he weighed 12 pounds, 13 ounces. Five weeks ago he weighed 13 pounds, 1 ounce. I freaked out (and cried) when I discovered he not only didn't gain any weight within the last month but he's actually lost a few ounces. The doctor didn't seem concerned at all?? He said most babies drop weight at some point but it typically happens when they start crawling or walking. He said Campbell is just small. He always has been. He told Scott and I to not be concerned because he's really healthy and very strong. I asked if there was anything I could do to fatten him up and he said no. Just leave him be. My little peanut is such a little peanut. I'm very anxious to see if he gains weight when we go back for his 6 month wellness exam in 2 weeks. Campbell's weight will officially be the new stress in my life.

Height: 26 inches

Sleep: 7:30-7:00 pretty much exactly on the dot.
Eat: Campbell still nurses 5 times a day and eats solids twice in addition to that. My child loves any and all food. I let him suck on a pickle the other day thinking I would get a funny face out of him. Nope. He loved it and begged for more. It's hard for me to tell what his favorite foods are because he seems to love everything equally. I hope he's always a good eater!
Clothes: About a week after Campbell turned 5 months old we moved into 3-6 month clothes. We have so many adorable fall outfits for him and I'm so anxious for this weather to get cooler so Campbell can start wearing layers, jackets and knit beanies!

Diapers: Pampers Swaddlers Size 2
Likes: Food, bath time, and being outdoors are Campbells 3 favorite things. He still thinks it is the most hilarious thing in the world when we pretend like we're eating him. Campbell is obsessed with Ivy and Madison and loves watching them play with one another. Ivy and Madison love their little brother and when they give him kisses, Campbell gets a really big grin on his face. Campbell still loves sucking on his fingers.

Dislikes: Getting lotion put on him after his bath. He screams the entire time. He hates naps and fights me so hard on them. Campbell isn't the biggest fan of being alone, even for a short period of time. If he's in his jumper, he requires me to sit on the floor right in front of him.

Milestones: Campbell is getting really good at sitting up on his own! We practice all the time and he does great before he goes to reach for something and topples over. Campbell can feed himself with his Ella's pouch or Nuby Nibbler. If he's lounging back (in his stroller or propped back on pillows) he can pull himself to a more upright, seated position. He also likes to "help" me get him out of his car seat by sitting up and leaning forward. Campbell "talks" constantly and when I say "Momma" to him, he listens so intently and tries so hard to say what I'm saying.  He reaches for everything, and I mean everything, around him. If he's successful at getting it, it goes straight to his mouth. When we stick our tongues out at him, he sticks his tongue out too!
Month Six: Campbell has turned into such a clingy baby. I pretty much hold him the entire time he's awake because he cries and cries if I don't. Campbell is 100% not interested in a paci. He prefers his fingers instead.

All About Campbell: Campbell is a one of a kind baby! He is quick to let you know when he doesn't like something. Most of the time, he's happy and smiley and loves taking in the world around him. Strangers will come up to us in a store and he will get a huge grin on his face and smile so big for them. I love that about him! This little boy has turned into my best buddy. We go everywhere and do everything together :)
I love him so.
