Abram Thomas 6 Month Update

September is here and it's starting to feel like fall. My favorite season. Abram is currently 6 1/2 months, but I figured a little update about little man is never a bad thing.
I took Abram to his 6 month wellness visit and he weighs 18.1 pounds and 26.5 inches long. He is currently wearing 6-9 month clothes and Allen's wardrobe is working out quite nicely for little man.

Abram overall is such a happy baby. He loves his big brother and is always curious as to what Allen is doing. Abram is a blankie baby. He loves having one of his A & A blankies with him and I have caught him quite a few times trying to snag Allen's blue blankies.

Abram is also officially on the move. Its more a a scoot/crawl, but if you set him down on the floor he is on the move. He's also very determined so if he spots something or someone on the floor that he wants he's on a mission to go a get it. He's moving a lot sooner than Allen did and I think it's because he sees his big brother on the go and he wants to catch up with him.

Abram's new addition to all of the sweet things that he does is he sucks his thumb. I can't get over the cuteness of the above picture. He will still take a paci, but when that doesn't cut it he goes straight for thumb.
We are also letting him put himself to sleep. We aren't using the CIO method, but we let him soothe himself in his crib. The sleeping positions he ends up in after he's put himself down are quite hilarious. Most of the times he's wrapped up in one of his blankies, butt up in the air, and completely turned around from the position I laid him down in. He's still a tummy sleeper and has been from day one.
Abram is still a champ at breastfeeding and we have made it officially 6 months which was my first goal. Now on to my second which is a full year. Abram has also started solids which is just crazy to think that 6 months have truly flown by and he's already half a year old. He was not a fan of cereal and that only lasted a couple of days until we started introducing actual solids. He currently loves bananas, avocado, and banana/apple mix. He HATES peas. I am making all of his baby food which I really enjoy. Our next batch of foods to try is carrots and squash, maybe even trying peas again.
I can't wait to see what the next 6 months will hold for you little man.
