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!

  1. Soo crazy how our little guys are growing. It’s awesome to read this because Rocco is doing the same things now. It’s really crazy because I have a wordpress that I’ve been using since we found out we were prego and I just got out that same outfit this week and held it up to Rocco in comparison of what he used to be when the preemie outfit was too big for him! I’m so proud of our little ones!

    • It’s amazing to see them grow so well! Our NICU follow up AND 6 month pediatrician appointments are both tomorrow. Dying for new weight.

  2. just wait darlin.. the growing doesnt stop! the milestones dont either. Not that you “want” them too.. but they just come so fast!

    • I’m so happy to see him growing so well. I’m just shocked at HOW MUCH he has changed this month. I love seeing how he reacts to new things.

  3. it really is amazing! just wait!
