Timeline: As of Wednesday, our little Georgie is 6 months old! We cannot believe how quickly time has passed.
How We’re Feeling: We continue to be incredibly blessed — George, John and I have been very happy and healthy.
How George is Changing: We went to the doctor on Friday for George’s 6 month check-up and shots. George weighs 15 pounds, 10 ounces and is 26 inches long. In other words, George is growing like a weed! We are still breastfeeding and fortunately everything is still going really well on this front. George feeds 5 or 6 times a day and one of those is typically a bottle feeding (usually given by John or our nanny). When I am traveling for work, George is exclusively fed expressed breast milk. George is also still sleeping really well and typically sleeps for 8 1/2 to 11 hours at night (without waking to feed/change).
We have started solids and George is currently enjoying pears, bananas, squash, sweet potatoes and peas. We typically feed him solid foods 2 times a day, but sometimes 3 times (if he is really hungry). We decided to completely skip rice cereal for a variety of reasons, including my sensitivity with gluten.
How I’m Changing (Body After Baby): I will do another comprehensive update in a few days but I am down 57 pounds and feeling great. Only 10 more pounds to go! Running and sleeping are going well for me too.
How I’m Staying Active: Running, walking and strength training are my exercise of choice these days. I’m loving it!
What’s Keeping Me Busy: In addition to being a Mom, I am still working full-time and am traveling more and more for work these days.
What’s New with George: George is wearing mostly 6-9 month clothing now, with a heavy lean toward the 9 month size. He loves playing in his activity center and loves jumping. George still loves to roll and loves to grab his feet. He has even learned how to put his toes into his mouth. Gross, but still cute! George is very cuddly and loves to snuggle, especially when he is sleepy.
What’s New at Cliffwood: We are still in the midst of a prolonged Winter house cleansing. We are still sprucing up a few things around the house and have some new pieces of furniture and decorative items. I hope to post about these things in the next week.
The Nursery: We are still waiting on delivery of the wall art we chose for the nursery. We are getting so close to being “done” with the decor in the nursery.
