Jack: 6 Months!

Length:  27.5 inches
Weight:  18 lbs

Based on measurements from your 6 month checkup on 11/8/13

Milestones this month:
  • Starting solids...right now you are just on rice cereal, but boy do you love it!
  • Sleeping on your tummy sometimes
  • You are not quite sitting up unassisted, but you are getting so much stronger. 
  • Scooting on your butt
  • You learned that kicking your legs in your bouncer and mamaroo makes the toys bounce around so you are a busy guy with those legs
  • Reaching and grabbing for everything.  When you want something you start clenching your fists
  • Much more talking
  • Discovering how funny Tucker is and wanting to grab him
  • First fever after your 6 month shots (this isn't really something to celebrate, but I wanted to document it...I guess it is cause for celebration that you made it 6 months without getting sick).  Knock on wood! 
  • Recognizing people other than mom and his Mimi {who is now squeals and laughs everytime he sees her}

Things you like this month:
  • Mirrors
  • Shrieking...especially during church
  • Music
  • Animals
  • Being outside
  • Your mommy, Nanny Y and Mimi
  • Bath time
  • Watching Tucker
  • Your stuffed animal friends
  • The Exersaucer is your favorite, but you also love the Jumperoo
Things you don't like this month:
  • Afternoon naps
  • Getting lotion applied after your bath...oh the screams!
  • Getting your fingernails cut
Special memories this month:
  • First trip to San Antonio and first time in a hotel
  • Spening the weekend with Mimi and Papi in San Antonio
  • Laughing hysterically with Nonni singing "What does the fox say"
  • First trip to the pumpkin patch
  • Taking holiday family photos
  • Showing you off at my company picnics in Houston and San Antonio
  • Discovering Snuggles the cat at Pops' house
  • Getting more comfortable nursing in public...we are both getting so much better at this!
  • Feeding you rice cereal with a spoon for the first time
  • Screaming and laughing with Mimi while in your exersaucer

Dear Jack,

No way has it been 6 months.  We just brought you home.  Next thing you know we will be planning your first birthday party.  I am so proud of you and love watching your personality develop.  You have the cutest little smirk these's like you know how cute you are!  We have so much fun together and I miss you like crazy when we aren't together.  I've always been a bit of a scrooge during the holidays...until this year!  I can't wait to celebrate this special season with you and create new family traditions for our little family of Tuck!  I love you so much Little Jackamus.
