Peewee-pint @ Six Months...
It's hard to believe that Peewee-pint is already six months old! Having said that, we've had a LOT go on in the past six months!
Peewee-pint is truly delightful (except when he's just awake in the middle of the night, which does happen occasionally). Everyone (except probably Daddy) describes him as "very laid back" He seems to just hang out and go with the flow...he hangs out with me, the bigger boys, Daddy, Grandma...whoever wants to lug him around.
He's typically pretty happy to play on the floor, wrestle toys in his bouncy seat, have tummy time, guard the kitchen from his high chair, chill in his car seat, and especially just being held by anyone big (like adult size). He always lets us know when he's had enough...usually very loudly-then he will NOT be ignored. Up until that deafening piggy squeal, he's generally laughing, cooing, babbling, growling and (his current favorite) spitting. Sometimes the bigger boys comment on how noisy Peewee-pint is...and it's true.
Mr. Grabby Fingers has gotten awesome with fine motor skills (at least on par with the ability of a 6 month old with chubby hands) and even uses his two feet together as one prehensile unit to grab anything that come between them. He's an expert at putting things in his mouth...EVERYTHING goes into his mouth (but I wouldn't expect anything less) which makes Quarter-pint crazy since everyone is always telling him to take his fingers OUT of his 3 year-old mouth.
Peewee-pint is still working on sitting up. Generally it's the folded-in-half tripod sit, so I have to be careful and NOT let him practice just after eating. His FAT thighs make for a pretty broad base...it's just that darn big head that's so heavy to hold up!
Here's the Six Month Stats:
Length 25.75 inches (25 %ile)
Weight 17 lbs., 5 oz. (50 %ile)
Head 45 cm. (85 %ile)
Weighing in at only 17.25 pounds officially makes Peewee-pint the runt-by 2 pounds.
