My baby boy is six months old. He’s almost a year! Oh my goodness, how the time flies! Those first few weeks were so hard- I didn’t think we’d ever get to this point, but we’re here and I’m loving every minute of it.
Jack is pretty awesome right now. He has so much personality. He is pretty laid back, unless it’s time to eat and then you better feed him immediately! He has started some solids- he eats rice cereal, oatmeal, applesauce, bananas, carrots and sweet potatoes. We’re trying to introduce one new food each week or so. So far, he’s loved them all. He says “mmm mmm” between bites and just follows the spoon everywhere it goes. He still spits up, but it seems to be less that it used to be. By less, I mean amount- he still spits up, but not as many of those giant, all over everything spit ups.
He’s a very happy baby. He smiles everytime he sees us, and has the sweetest little laugh. He’s started laughing when you pick him up from school and again when you put him in the car. He thinks it’s hilarious! He loves bathtime, and he usually gets one every night. He has outgrown most of his 3-6 month clothes and is moving right into 6-12 months. His 6-month check up is next week and I think he’ll be about 16.5 pounds. Still somewhat little, but he’s filled out so much in the past few weeks. He has chubby little legs! He loves to play-he grabs everything and puts it in his mouth. He loves his Rainforest Exerciser and now also has a play table with a seat attached that he enjoys.
He’s sleeping a little better. Usually wakes up between 2-3 to eat, then goes back to sleep until 6 or 6:30. I’m hopeful that he will make it all night one of these nights, but at least he’s stopped waking up more than once. I think teeth will be coming in any day- he’s very drooly and chews on everything. He loves to suck on oranges in the little mesh bag things. He has a line around his head where most of the hair on top is gone. He looks like a little old man- Danny DeVito style!
He’s so adorable and we are so blessed to be his parents! We enjoy every second with this little man and can’t wait to watch him grow!
