Our October

Oliver's 1st time at Morris Orchard. This was also Harlow's 1st Orchard that she ever visited.

Auntie Alison came to visit from Atlanta!

We love when Grammy and Pop visit! 

Yoders' Farm.

Bring on Halloween weekend! I have a little get together planned for Friday morning to start off Halloween weekend: we'll be painting pumpkins with some of Harlow's friends. Harlow has been practicing saying "trick or treat" and is ready to dress up as Dorothy.

Oliver: 6 months

It's crazy to say we have a 6 month old!

Weight: 18 lbs. 12 oz. (74th percentile)
Height: 26.5 inches (44th percentile)

Size: 3 diapers. Wearing 6 and 6/9 months.

Looks: Dad and Harlow.

Eyes: Blue. 

Hair: So much blonde!

Sleeping: Ugh, sleeping hasn't been the best this month. He's had a cold 2x and that has thrown his schedule off. He still goes down between 7/7:30 but he's been waking up between 11 and midnight and then again at 2 and 4 a.m. I'm ready for good sleep again!

Eating: Every 4/4.5 hours. I only nurse in the morning and night and he gets formula the rest of the time. I introduced him to food. At first I had to mix everything in his oatmeal but he's now eating squash, prunes, and sweet potatoes. 

Milestones: Doing really well with sitting up. Still wobbly but he's getting there. Becoming more chatty.

Memorable Outings: Pumpkin Patch. Traveled back to back weekends to the shore (wedding and my 10 year HS reunion) and was an awesome traveler.

Loves: his sister (they both love each other so much) and when she interacts with him, jumperoo, the bath, nap time/bedtime, food, music, his plush book, his hedgehog lovey.

Hates: being hungry, when I take him out the bath and get him dressed, cleaning his nose, and putting a bib on him. 

Words/Sounds: coos/agoo, a lot of babble, and mama.

Nicknames: Oli, Oli boy, bubs/bubba.


Happy 6 months Oliver!

At his 6 month appointment.
