Madden-6 months old

At 6 months old, Madden weighs 22 pounds and is 27 1/2 inches long. He is now in size 4 diapers and wears 12-18 month clothes. He is a big boy!
Madden doesn't like tummy time and doesn't really like to roll. He has rolled a handful of times (while on his playmat) and only from back to stomach. He prefers to sit up!
This month Madden has mastered sitting up. He is doing really well! He loves to sit and play :)
Sleeping is going about the same. He is still waking up at least once if not twice a night. I asked his doctor at his 6 month appointment and he said that Madden could have stopped his night feedings at 1 month (ok great...we are 5 months to late on that one) and that he is waking up just as a habit to eat. So we began to decrease his feedings. And then he got sick and wasn't sleeping well anyways so we put that on hold. We also tried transitioning Madden to a sleepsack that didn't swaddle his arms but so far he isn't having it.
Madden is always full of smiles! He loves his sister, and he's turning into a daddy's boy. He loves to sit by Manny and play or watch football/basketball with Manny.
He is eating 3 "meals" a day of solid foods and drinking about 6 ounces at each feeding. He loves sweet potatoes, squash, carrots, apples, pears, and bananas. Really the only things he hates and refuses to eat are green beans and peas.
We are having a blast with this little boy and watching him grow, grow, grow! He is pretty laid back and goes with the flow...well except when we are in the car. He hates his car seat. We love seeing his little personality start to form and learning his likes and dislikes. He brings us a lot of joy! :)
