6 Months!

Happy Half A Year Birthday Cal! How are you already 6 months old?!

6 Month Stats:
Weight: 14 lbs. 1 oz. (2%)
Length: 25.39 in.  (7%)
Head Circumference: 17 in. (44%)

Clothes: Calvin is wearing 3 month and 3-6 month clothes and just switched over to size 2 diapers. 

Current Nicknames:
Super Cal
Cal Pal
Cal Paolantonio

Sleep: Something clicked and sleep has gotten a lot easier this month. We are working to get Calvin to 3 naps a day but he sometimes still needs 4 if he wakes up early or doesn't take long naps. He is sleeping in our room in the bassinet and is still swaddled but with one arm out. We are going to move him to his own room in the next week… why is this so hard for me?! 
Typical Day-
8:00 Wake up
10:00 Nap
1:00 Nap (He sleeps 30 mins, eats and then sleeps more)
4:30 Nap
7:30 Bath, Book, Eat and Sleep- usually is asleep by 8:30 on a good night but sometimes 9/9:30
He wakes up 1 or 2 times a night.
Calvin's awake time is about 1 1/2-2 hours.

Playtime and Activities: Calvin got a jumper this month which has been really fun and he still loves his activity mat. He is playing with his toys a lot- he likes balls, tag blanket, elephant and owl. He grabs them, holds them and chews on them :) It has also been really fun to see Calvin and Christian play together. C likes to lay down next to Calvin on his mat and they giggle and look at toys together. Calvin took his first trip to the cabin this month, tagged along on lots of park trips, walks and play dates.

Development: Calvin can roll from his back to his tummy and not so much the other way around. So he  is usually found playing on his tummy, screaming. He loves to squeal constantly, smile and laugh. He will grab and play with his toes and reach for toys. He doesn't like tummy time but can hold his head up about 45 degrees on his tummy and has good control when being held. He is still exclusively breastfeeding. His acid reflux is getting so much better and only needs medicine every few days.

Calvin's Quirks and Favorites:
He laughs the hardest when you sing "What does the fox say?"
He loves to have you touch his nose.
He wakes up happy, even in the middle of the night!
He started sucking on his two fingers and all of a sudden likes the pacifier
He screams ALL THE TIME and it is a happy scream! :)
He is the most chill baby- always  happy... unless he is tired
He is most ticklish on his neck

Racing Off to Dreamland

Oh these boys! I love how much they love each other. I can not get enough of the matching jammies either. :) Daddy was out of town so we decided that we should end our night with baths, matching pjs and a photo shoot! I pray that they will always find so much joy in each other and fill our home with lots of giggles and smiles.

Each year, Alicia blesses the ladies in our church by providing professional pictures of us with our kids, or moms or grandmas. Each year I look forward to getting these pictures as they always turn out beautifully. This year was no exception! I love my boys and am so blessed to be their Mama :)
