Wyatt's 6 Months

He's 28" long
19 lbs

He's getting up on his knees and pulling up to his knees while holding onto things.

I almost got a picture of him pulling up to his feet but he fell over before my camera was ready! lol Yes, I caught him before he hit the floor :D

He still creeping around although he's incorporated rolling over into it :D He's always rolling over, esp. when he's about to do really well with crawling. And he's finally rolling both directions... okay, he did both directions a while back but didn't really continue rolling from his back to his tummy until today. There's been occassions where I've found him (like in bed) where it was obvious he must have rolled from his back to his belly but only seen him actually doing that like one time when he was like 2 mths old.

Its crazy because today, it seems like he's really, really, really putting in a huge effort to crawl! Its exciting!

He still seems to be teething... lots of drooling going on, chewing on my fingers and on his own, pulling on his ears.

He must have gone through a growth spurt because he's barely fitting any of his clothes! He's definitely out of the 3-6 mth outfits... he can kind of fit the 2-piece in those sizes... but, even those are snug. I can't imagine trying to put him in a cloth diaper and putting them on! Definitely wouldn't fit.

The onesies he has on in these pictures and video are size Large. Pretty much what fits him right now. He does have a few nice shirts and shorts that he can fit (sizes 6-9 or even 12 mths ones) but most of the rest of his clothes are for colder times... lots of pants and long-sleeved shirts; useless to us right now. So, the next times I go out to thrift stores, I'll have to keep my eyes open for clothes for him... I thought I wouldn't have to worry about clothes for him... but, I guess I was wrong.

Click here to see the video if the above isn't working.
The video is of him bouncing... its so cute (naturally! lol). His dad finally got it out of the attic (had since Calista was a baby) yesterday evening . He's really enjoying it; esp. when his sisters are close-by, making a mess :D This will help him build up those muscles so he can get around; he really can't wait to be able to crawl/walk... I can tell! He even tries to walk while in that bouncey thing.

Just wanted to tell you how adorable your Wyatt is! I've just had my first with my wife and you're three months ahead of us on the curve, so I'll keep checking back in to see what to expect!
