At six months old, we're deep into bed-led weaning. There's not a whole lot of eating going on just yet, but there's plenty of exploration of tastes & flavors! Whenever we're eating a meal or the girls are having a snack, Brady's in his chair "eating" whatever we're eating!

Brady continues to be a great nurser and a good sleeper. He still usually gets up once a night to nurse, but he goes right back to sleep on his own after he eats. He still puts himself to sleep for bedtime/naps (!!!!) and takes three good naps a day--unless his big sisters' schedules get in the way of his sleep schedule. ;) Sometimes we jokingly say it's a rough life being the third kid b/c Brady's schedule is dictated by his siblings, but in other ways it's so much better being the third! With Shelby, we worried and obsessed over every single detail of her little life b/c she was the guinea pig for us in this whole parenting gig. But with Brady, we're so much more laid back and we can enjoy him more b/c we're not worrying!
Brady's not full-on crawling yet, but he can get around pretty good!! He's also sitting up now for brief periods & can get from the crawling position to sitting up on his own. Because the girls hit their gross motor milestones so late, Brady's mobility never ceases to amaze us.
As you can see in some of these pictures, Brady has bandaids on his chubby little thighs. We had his six month check-up this past week, and he took his shots like a champ!! He weighed in at 18 pounds & 6 ounces (61st percentile--we've never been so low on the growth chart!) and measured 27.56 inches (81st percentile).
We love you more than we ever thought possible, Brady!!!
