Friday Rainbow Baby Blog: August 12

At almost 6.5 months old, Simon measures in at 30 inches long and 20.7 lbs! He's now made his way into the 75th percentile, but is just tall for his age...he's in 12 month clothing.

I thought the hatred of his car seat had passed, but he had an atrocious trip yesterday. He's perfected this shrieking squeal that is really something. Still hoping it passes at some point, but feel bad for him still.

His hair is really growing in. I'm going to show off the red again. I'm tickled that it's stuck so far.

I'm entering the above photo in Paper Mama's "eyes" photo challenge.

  1. oh my goodness so adorable! and twenty pounds! wow. Probably a silly question, but have you tried anything like this to make him like the carseat more...http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html/186-0619866-7865410?asin=B000ZG2JH6&AFID=Froogle_df&LNM=|B000ZG2JH6&CPNG=baby&ci_src=14110944&ci_sku=B000ZG2JH6&ref=tgt_adv_XSG10001

  4. He's darling! The car seat thing is just SO hard. A shrieking baby is way more distracting than a cell phone or eating while driving could ever be.

  5. He is just SO cute. Cooper weighed in at 23 lbs and was 34 inches tall at his 15 month old check up, so you have one big boy! As for the car seat, Cooper hated his car seat up until we got to move him to a forward facing seat. He still complains if he's in it for too long, but just going to the grocery store isn't as hard.
