Kane: 6 Months Old

Ahh!  I couldn't be more behind!  And these are the posts that are truly just for me.  Where I get to log all those milestones & memories.  The stats & the quirks.  And then with each new month, I read up on what both big brothers were like at the same age.  I love seeing the similarities and the differences!  Yet, seeing as how we are already half way through the month, I've lost the piece of paper with Kane's 6 month stats before I ever had a chance to log them.  Huge third kid fail!  But I do remember he was nearly 20 lbs & almost the exact same height as his brothers (90 something percentile).  Weight wise he continues to stay in between the two older ones, however closer to Finn.  This month he also seems to be a total mix of the two looks wise.  Eye color is still TBD.  Maybe green? Hazel?

This month brought more sturdy sitting & the beginning of the army crawl.  He can make good distance now, it just takes him awhile.  Sleep improved, with him giving me a good 4-5 hour stretch to start the night.  Typically takes three naps a day, with one of them being a super long one.  He can fall asleep anywhere, anytime!  I love him!  I always envied those mamas with babes who could fall asleep at the dinner table.  That was never my kids.  Except now we have Kane, and he gets his sleep when he can.  We pulled out the obnoxious jumper that we have while we were unpacking, and little man just jumped himself right to sleep!  One minute he was wildly jumping, the next his little head just tucked into his chest, and he was snoring!  Now we try and catch him when he's tired and get him in a far more comfortable bed!

He loves being in the sling, baths, & showers.  Full disclosure: he doesn't get bathed often.  Maybe twice a week.  I'm sure that will change with the introduction of foods though!  His body is constantly moving (unless he's in the sling), and he puts everything in his mouth.  He's a big fan of crinkly paper & whatever his brothers are playing with.  He already likes to rough house or wrestle, and will wriggle his way over when Conor is on the ground with the older boys.  He wants to be included in everything!  His brothers get the greatest belly laughs!!!  What I find to be obnoxious and a little too "in his face", he finds hilarious.  Of course!

We're in that "give me everything you have, except not the toys; I want everything but the toys, and they are all going in my mouth" phase.  Sometimes I'm amazed at just how similar certain phases are.  He says "mama" (early like Finn did), but only occasionally and typically when he's upset.  He still has huge eyes and is quite expressive.  He nurses far less than any baby of mine.  Mostly just feeding before falling asleep, occasionally other times.  But obviously the boy isn't hurting for some pounds. His winter wardrobe has been hiding his baby bod, but I assure you he has plenty of rolls to show off with the warm spring weather coming!

Goodness we love this little one!  Cheers to another month!


  1. He's changing every day! I used to only see Liam, now I can definitely see glimpses of Finn too. What a sweetheart! PS: you're in trouble now that you have 3 that are mobile!

  2. If it makes you feel better we just got Clark a baby album this week. Talk about being behind! Love Kane’s eyes something fierce!


I love reading all your comments!
