Joshua at 5 & 6 Months

Well.....that was quite the little blogging break! I always want to blog, but with Instagram, it's just so much easier to post pics and updates there. BUT, I love looking back at remembering what we were doing, so I want to at least keep up with Joshua's monthly posts.

(he's now almost 7 months, so I'll try to get that post up soon-I feel like this last month has been a big one!)

Since it's been 2 months a lot has happened and I have a lot of pictures!

First...Stats! Joshua is about the same size at 6 months that he was at 5. We even flew to Hong Kong to see a growth specialist. But all the doctor's we've seen think he's okay, he will just be small.

(4, 5, and 6 months)

6 Month Stats:

Weight: 5.9 kilos or 13 lbs (-2%)
Length: 61.5 cm or 24 inches
Size Diaper: Small cloth diapers and Pampers Mediums 
Size Clothes: STILL 3 months.....I am so ready for him to be able to wear the next size up
(*he's just started wearing 6 month clothes, but now he's almost 7 months)
Sleep: Eh.......we've stopped swaddling and for the last few weeks he's been waking up at least once a night. Most of the time we can just give him the paci and he goes right back to sleep. I cherish the nights that he sleep the whole night through! He usually wakes up between 6:30-7:30, just depends on the day. 
He usually naps great-2 long naps and then a short one. 
Feedings: Again, I feel like i'm trying to figure everything all over again.Sometimes he has 4 feedings a day at 7, 11, 3, and 7. But most days he eats every 3-3 1/2 hours. 
Teeth: None yet, but I think we are really close.

We went swimming a few times this summer. Joshua loves his baths, but he wasn't too sure about the pool. I think it may be because the water was always a little cool. 

Because Joshua's growth hasn't been too great, we went to Hong Kong for a few days to see a specialist. They didn't do any tests, but the conclusion seems to be that he's just small.  He's in the negative 2-3%. He is the size Paige was at 3 months.
I love my little travel buddy-he does so great with it all!

This is Paige (left) and Joshua (right) in the same toy at about the same age. You can kind of tell-but they both have the nose scrunch!

Joshua, or Baby Josh as we call him, has never really loved tummy time. This is one rare time that he was smiling instead of fussing during it. Now, he rolls so much that as soon as we put him on his tummy he rolls to his back. But he does sleep on his tummy now most of the time. 

Even though he hasn't gained much weight in the last few months, I still feel like he is changing so fast!

5 Months:

6 Months:

I feel like he literally started sitting up all on his own overnight. Sometimes he does lunge for a toy in front of him and falls, but he'll get the hang of it :)

It won't be too long before he has a plate of little foods in front of him!

Joshua really is the best baby. I thought Paige was an easy baby, but Joshua gives her some competition. He rarely fusses or cries, unless he's really tired. He is very easy going and has the best smile! I love him to pieces!
