Colton was a really good boy this year and Santa came to visit! Not only did he get great goodies from Santa, like a walker and toys, but he also got great gifts from Gigi/Pops, Grandma/Grandpa, and all the aunts/uncles/cousins! He definitely has more than enough toys now!!
Colton went for his 6 month check up last week; he weight 21 lbs & 15 oz and was 28 1/4" long! My big lil' man is in the +95% on weight and 90-95% on length. He is a big boy, but the pediatrician said his is in proportion so he isn't worried about it. Maybe we have a line backer on our hands...
Last week Colton also rolled over for the first time from his back to his tummy; he's all over the place now! Since he can officially roll over and back over, he just flips and flops all day it seems like :) He is also sitting up great! We still put something on the floor behind him, but not to support him, just to soften the fall if he decides to launch backwards. He just sits there and plays with his toys and is starting to reach for things when he wants them...that means crawling is in the near future!
We officially switched daycare's on December 3rd and Colton now goes to daycare at my work :) I didn't think I would like it at first, but now that he has been here a couple of weeks, I really love it!! I love knowing he is just on the other side of campus, I love seeing friendly/familiar faces, and I love that there are kiddos in the room that I know their parents and will get to see them grow with Colton. The staff is so nice and awesome with Colton...and again I know them! The one thing that scared me most about moving him to work, ended up making it the one thing I love; seeing all the familiar faces. Loving it so far!
My oh my how time flys! I can't believe Colton is already 6 months old! In the last 6 months we have accomplished many things:
sleeping through the night
eating fruits, veggies, and meats
rolling from tummy to back
trying to roll from back to tummy
It is just crazy how fast everything happens, and how much they change in a short 6 months. When I was pregnant and before, 6 months seems to drag on, but now 6 months is flying by before my eyes. Before long he will be crawling, walking, talking, and growing bigger and bigger. It is crazy how much they change in a short amount of time...and to think how small he was this time last year. Tomorrow Colton is moving to a new daycare, one closer to me...like AT my work :) I am super excited to have him so close to me during the day and to know he is in good hands. Our last daycare wasn't really working for us. I know that no place will be perfect, but I felt like he needed to be somewhere else other than our original daycare. This month will also be Colton's first Christmas. We already have the tree up and he love staring at the lights and reaching for the ornaments; I'm soo happy he can't crawl yet otherwise I don't think our tree would survive!
