Mason is 6 month

We had Mason 6 month appointment yesterday. The doctor said he is growing very well and catching up quickly to a full term baby. He is in the 80 percentile of a 4 month old which is his corrected age and in the 35 perecntile of a 6 month old which is his birth age. He weighed in at 16lbs and 26 inches long.

Mason can now roll from tummy to back and he gets half way from back to tummy. He still does not enjoy belly time but can now do a full push up. He is always trying to grab stuff that is in his view. He has a lot more control of his arms and hands. He looks at everything and everyone. While we nurse he gets easily distracted now, the world is very interesting for him. When it comes to sleeping he still takes two naps during the day and usually is ready for bed at 630-7 but does not actually fall asleep till 8. We are still co sleeping half the night since when he wakes up in the middle of the night its easier just to put him in bed and nurse him back to sleep. Talking about nursing we are still exclusively nursing and still going strong. He did try some rice cereal last week and he seemed to like it but at this point anything that goes in his mouth he likes. His doctor said we could probably start solids in the next month or two so im looking forward to making my own baby food. We think he has also started teething which has not been very fun I feel sorry for my little guy cause there is very little I can do. We are cloth diapering full time during the day for 3 months now. We still have not found a night time diaper I like so we use sposies. Right now we use Fuzzi Bunz which are Rauls favorite since they are like sposies. In the past two weeks he has also found his high pitch voice and I mean very high! He has gotten very vocal and loud too. He makes us laugh all the time.
