6 Month Update

Kamran turned 6 months old this past week. Everyone told us when we were struggling with our teeny baby that it would get easier. It has. We still don’t sleep through the night but we have gotten pretty used to that. If there were spectators in my house for the 3 am wake ups I’m sure they would say I resemble a zombie when I get out of bed. With Fall well on its way it is SO hard to get out of bed and feed the baby. But I do and Kayvan steps in when I need him to. Gone are the days of me laying next to Kamran’s bed crying, “I just don’t know what to do!” because I could not put the child down without him screaming bloody murder. Yes–both of those really happened.

Despite being a preemie, Kam seems to be hitting his milestones or somewhat close to it. He has certainly found his voice and will often yell from his crib. He seems louder every day. We’ve gone from what used to be sweet, quiet, song-like coos to an all out blabber mouth (more like momma). I love his little voice. He is still trying hard to get his feet. He grabs them but isn’t bendy enough to get them in the mouth. If you sit him up he immediately leans forward, mouth agape for the toes. He can keep his balance for a good few seconds before he flops over.

He is growing tons these days. Kam was only in 3-6 month clothes for a few WEEKS and is now really filling out 6 month clothes. We got a hand me down exersaucer last week and Kamran was on his toes on the lowest setting when we sat him in it for the first time. They have to be flat footed in the exersaucer so of course, I took him out. I put him in tonight and his feet were flat and legs bent. Kayvan and I were SHOCKED. No wonder he has been a cranky butt the past few weeks. Boy is a weed!

Here are a few photos that really sum up just how far Kam has come.

Kamran's first time in real clothes. Off the bili lights and no more picc line!

Kamran at 6 months being all sorts of bouncy next to the preemie outfit in the above photo. Yes, that really fit him once upon a time.
