Little Si turned six months old on September 1st! Our sleepy little newborn is now a loud, flirty, smiley, quite rambunctious little guy. He loves to bounce, roll, suck his toes, and screech. He’s always moving his legs, and he loves to watch his older brothers.
He started solids the day after his half-birthday, and what a champ he was. He stared at the spoon with anticipation, reached out for the bowl, and gobbled up his food. So far he’s tried and enjoyed rice cereal, winter squash, sweet potatoes, peas, carrots and yogurt.
I took in him for his six month well baby visit. Doc says he’s a healthy guy, and right on track. Interestingly enough, he’s the smallest of our boys (both shortest and lightest). At six months of age, he’s 1 lb and 2″ smaller than Avery was, and 4lbs, 1″ smaller than Kieron. I suppose if we had to give them labels, Avery would be our lanky, Kieron our tanky, and Silas our tiny. Here are his stats:
Height: 26.5 in (40.93%)
Weight: 16 lb 9 oz (30.5%)
Head: 17.01″ (43.4%)
