I can’t believe our little nugget is 6 months old! He is growing so fast and time is just flying. I am trying so hard to soak up every moment with him and enjoy those middle of the night feedings (no, he is still not sleeping through the night) and early morning wake-up calls. Tucker is such a joy and we are all smitten with him. Weston is obsessed with his “big belly” and Hampton and Sophie are the best little helpers. They love to make him laugh and play with him on his play mat!
Update: Tucker is still refusing a bottle, but I am hoping to get him more used to the taste of formula by mixing it with cereal to see if that helps him at all. We will see. Also, as stated above, he is not sleeping through the night, but we are about to start sleep training him. I am dreading it, but I think it will make a huge difference for all of us.
Currently, Tucker is still sleeping in and loving his Dockatot. The Dockatot helps the crib transition so much. I am so thankful for it and wish I had known about it with Hamp and Sophie. He is loving his little toy car and his Sophie Giraffe (all of my kids have had one and loved it). He still sleeps in a sleep sack some night and we swaddle him with his arms out some nights. He still loves his bottom half to be swaddled, so we are doing that until we start sleep training, then we will use the sleep sack, only.
Another item we have loved is our baby bouncer. We used the same one for all 4 kids and it has been wonderful. He is getting too big for it now and can get his legs out of the buckle. We joke and say he is our Houdini baby. He can get out of just about anything.
I can’t believe our little caboose is already halfway to ONE. We are having so much fun with him and when he smiles at us with those big blue eyes, we all melt.
