Charlie has been in the outside world for a whole 6 months today. He went to the Dr today and is now 17lbs. 1oz, 26.3in tall, and his head is 43.5cm around. I think the head measurement was off last time, or maybe this time because it only changed 0.3 of a centimeter. In 2 months. I don't think that's possible. I wish they would let me do the measurements, especially since I actually know what I am doing. According to these he has gained 1 lb 10 oz , and grew 1.5inches in the last 2 months. Pretty good. Things continue to improve with the reflux, it's still not perfect, but it's pretty close. He loves being down on the floor now for most of the day, but spends many late afternoon hours in the Ergo. He actually gets excited when he sees me putting it on. I find I can get a lot more done during his fussy period if I just wear him. He is sleeping somewhat better, but still wakes at least once. We are trying hard to get him on a schedule/routine because I think he does better with some sense of what is coming next. He is amazingly mobile now, and is working so hard on actual crawling motions, he has all the right moves, but can't get the order down quite yet. He manages to get far though by squirming and pushing with his feet to shove himself forward. He still rolls well from tummy to back and has almost mastered back to tummy. His favorite things these days, other than Will, are his giraffe, his crinkle book, and his musical flowers. He recognizes his name and you can ask him where William is and he looks toward him. It's so sweet to see how much he loves him. We have had a wild 6 months, but I am so happy that God decided to send Charlie to us. I can't imagine our family without him!
