6 month stats

I know I've said this before, but Chase is growing so fast,
I can't believe that he is 6 months old already!

He is now 28 inches long (90th percentile),
and weighs 18 pounds (75th percentile).

He has such a cute laugh and smile, and thankfully we see them often!

This past month has been full of changes.
Chase started on solid foods and is still getting used to eating them.
So far he's not a big fan of anything,
but he will tolerate sweet potatoes and butternut squash.
(We're doing homemade baby food-- it is super easy to make
and saves a ton of money!)

Chase is getting really close to crawling.
Right after he turned 5 months old he started rolling
from his front to back (he was already rolling back to front).
Now he rolls all over the place,
can change directions by pushing with his arms,
and has started rocking back and forth on all fours for short periods of time.
We can't leave him on the bed alone for longer than 2 seconds
because he is so fast!
His favorite toy is our remote.
The second we sit down on the bed he looks around and dives for the remote.
The phone is second best.
And his feet are a close third.

We switched Chase to his crib right after he turned 5 months old
because he started rolling over the sides of his sleep positioner.
He did great for the first few nights,
and then he started rolling onto his tummy
and just couldn't sleep that way.
Thankfully he now sleeps on his tummy just fine.
And hopefully one of these days he'll start sleeping through the night!
We all just adore this cute little guy!

He's definitely looking more "grown-up." :) From these pics, he looks like a great combination of Ethan and Julia to me. What a sweet boy!

Wow! I can't believe he's 6 months, either! And I still haven't met him! :( He is SO cute though, and definitely a Borsky!! :) Like Robyn said, he looks just like Ethan and Julia all mixed together! :) Perfect!
