Sorry a lot of them are sideways (or upside down!) I don't know how to rotate them in here.

Quillan is now 6 months old!!! He weighs 14.6 lbs and is 26.5 inches long. He has outgrown his 3 month clothes and moved into 6 month clothes. He still has very little hair that appears to be coming in in some combination of red and blonde. His eyes are still blue. He has no teeth.
Quillan is still 100% breastfed. He has been showing some signs of interest in food (trying to grab our food, moving his mouth while he watches us eat) so we will likely be introducing some food to him in the near future. We plan to use the Baby Led Weaning technique for introducing food again.
He wakes about once a night most nights and easily goes back to sleep after a diaper change and a quick feed. He still sleeps on his belly and he still moves around quite a bit in his crib. As much as I've tried to nip it in the bud, he does still suck his thumb. I continue to try to replace it with a pacifier though.
Quillan has been more interested in toys lately. He can grab them and play with them now. He really likes holding rattles, chewing on teethers, and playing with his Freddie The Firefly sensory toy. He also likes looking at pictures in books and looking at himself in the mirror. Matt put the crib mirror in his crib and many times I find him looking at himself when he wakes up in the morning or after a nap.
As of yesterday he can now roll over both belly to back and back to belly. We all got to witness his first time rolling back to belly last night and cheered him on. He was confused at first and then got a big smile on his face like he thought he was hot stuff. So cute!
This month, of course, Quillan got to celebrate lots of Halloween festivities for the first time. He dressed up like a raccoon for Halloween. He got to go to The Zoo Goes Boo, the Halloween party at the Children's Museum, and trick or treating on Halloween night.
Unfortunately, my computer is broken so I am unable to post any new pictures. I will do an updated picture post once I get a new computer. Until then...
