 Nathan continues to be a dream baby.  He lives by his schedule. I can almost set my watch to it.

930 car nap 
10:30 nurse
12 cradle nap
2 nurse
3 cradle nap
5 nurse
730 bath
8 nurse and bath

His six month visit didn't go as swimmingly as expected.  Nathan still isn't putting a lot of pressure on his feet (a 4 month milestone). His head lag isn't as bad, but it's not where it should be. He also can't sit up as well as he should. He also hadn't rolled over until his exam.  We were told he has poor muscle tone and to give him as much tummy and play time as possible. We go back for a check up at seven months.

To say Nathan is easy going is an understatement. He's so chill yet equally engaged. He loves company and attention, but isn't fussy.  His demeanor has been my saving grace this Fall.
