Harvey at 6 months

Oh Harvey! We just adore this little guy. If we could keep him this age forever we totally would. I can't believe how quickly these 6 months have gone. 

At 6 months, Harvey still has just 2 teeth. There have been several times where I can see and feel new teeth just below the skin but then they back up and don't come in all the way. Such a bummer. He's been working hard on those but they're just not here yet.

He eats solids 3 times a day and has loved everything he's tried, but now that he's tried lots of stuff he doesn't like peas anymore. Can't blame him one bit. I pump 2 times a day and the rest of the time he gets formula. I feel a little bit bad that nursing him will not have lasted as long as the other kids, but it is what it is.

Harvey weighed in at 19 lbs 9 oz (85%), was 28.25" tall (97%), with a 17.9" head (96%) at his 6 month checkup. He's a growing boy!

He's a pretty curious guy and can army crawl where he needs to go. I've had several talks with Millie and Max about leaving their stuff around, especially little stuff. Harvey ate some paper instructions to one of Max's toys and it was a good lesson! 

Harvey's best laughs come when he's on the verge of tears.

He takes 2-3 naps per day and does well at night. He had a little cold a couple weeks ago and slept 12 hours straight for the first time in his life and now does it almost every night! Not bad! He's enjoying his crib. We moved him to his own room a few weeks ago... maybe around 5 months? I don't remember exactly when.

He is just a super happy and smiley boy and we love him to bits!
