Baby Max - 6 Months Old

6 Month Old Baby Milestones

I Can't Believe It ... Our Baby Is 6 Months Old ... 6 Month Milestones

Where does the time go? It seems like I gave birth to Baby Max just a month ago, but today marks his 6 months "almost birthday" and I am just in awe over our incredible little baby.

1) He showers us with kisses all day long.

2) He has been eating food for months now.

3) He rolls all over the place while playing on his floor mat.

4) He has just about figured out how to get his bottom up to crawl / starting to crawl.

5) Max can walk a 60 foot porch BACKWARDS in his little walker and he did this 3 times.

6) If I feed him a bite of peas after giving him a bite of apples, he will spit them out at me.

7) He goes crazy after he makes a #2 and then fights us the whole time we change his diaper.

8) He sleeps about 10 minutes when I want him to take a nap, but konks out completely when I do not want him to nap.

9) He has become a textbook case for "separation anxiety", so I dare not leave him alone too long at all.

10) He also started nursing roughly and pulling my hair and laughing.

Our baby still throws up all of the time, but it is getting better. I breastfeed mostly, but do use soy formula when we are out and about. It was worse when I used regular formula. I watch what I eat (reduced dairy, no spicy foods, etc) and it seems to help, but the doctor says this has
nothing to do with it. That it's just reflux because of the stomach muscles.

I want him to stay 6 months forever ...

Here is a complete list of 6 months old baby milestones:
  • Babies are starting using receptive language at around 6 months. This means that they start associating words with objects. Your baby might point to things when asked.

  • Your baby still needs and loves physical contact with you. Although not newborns, 6 month old babies are still changing and learning so much. Your physical love is comforting to them and maybe even needed more this month.

  • 50% of babies are babbling one syllable sounds / word over and over again. For example, "ba ba ba ba" or "da da da da". The repetition helps them learn, plus it gets attention!
Two more details about what our baby is like at 6 months old:

It sounds like Max can already say "Hi" and "I love you". It is so cute to hear him say "Hello" to Elmo, Caillou and his brother. I love having a 6 month old; they are so cute and start to understand more each day.

Our baby has also developed quite a little temper. He kicks his feet and suishes up his face when he is upset. I know that part is that he is frustrated with not being able to communicate with us, but sometimes it is because he wants picked up (after we have already held him for a while) or a toy that we have in out hands. We are thinking that this is the age to start catching and redirecting those bad habits, so that he is not "spoiled". Regardless of his little temper, I still love having a 6 month old baby. He is just one precious little boy and we are so grateful to have been blessed with such a loving and incredible new addition to our family.

In Motherly Love,
Mother Baby Child

My heart just tugged a little. As much as I love every stage, I miss my kids being 6 months old. I miss those baby days, as hard as they sometimes were. It really goes insanely fast.

I really enjoyed sifting through your blog, Lea.

Have a great Fourth!

What a beautiful baby! The 6 month milestone always makes me a wee bit sad and excited at the same time. It just goes so fast.

Lea, Hopped over from Blogfrog to visit you. You're certainly courageous to start over with a 6-month old when you older kids are teen and preteen. Glad you're enjoying the journey and indeed you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.

Thank you, Theresa. I know that it is only by the grace of God that I have made it this far with all of them. I was a single mom for many years, so this has been quite a different experience all the way around. Blessings!

(Lea) Mother Baby Child said...

Hi Lea,
Your boy is adorable! It is amazing that he can already say "I love you" and walk that distance (even with the walker) being only 6 months old.
I can only imagine how tough it is to start all over, but on the other hand, you get the chance to enjoy the every day moments and milestones again! My daughter is 4 years old now and my heart melts when I see her baby pictures.
