My baby is 6 months old today!!!

****I forgot to mention how much Jack hates the car and I mean he really despises it! He cries almost everytime we are in it! I am hoping that he will grow out of it soon! I don't think any of us will ever forget how much he doesn't like it but I wanted to add it to the blog just in case! ;)********

Jack is 6 months old and here is what he is up to these days:

He is now sitting, eating a wide variety of baby foods (all of which he LOVES...this child was born to EAT!!!), rolling back and forth (he has been doing this for a while now), playing with his toys, he now enjoys bath time (whew!), he smiles all the time, LOVES to jump in his jumperoo, tries to feed himself with his spoon and holds his own bottle (for short periods of time), talks to us with all his sweet baby sounds and tries to imitate our facial expressions, he grabs anything we have in our hands if it is food or drink related, sleeps 12 hours at night and naps maybe twice during the day for a max of 30 minutes each...yeah...we are working on this one still! Jack still loves to chew on anything that gets near his face including his hands and has recently really taken to sucking his thumb. He never really liked the pacifier and still doesn't. He is eating 7oz of formula 4 or 5 times a day and 2 full containers of fruits/veggies as well. We have his 6 month check-up on Wednesday so I will post his weight/measurements then! Jack's favorite song is If you are happy and you know it! He grins from ear to ear when I sing it, absolutely loves the clapping part and even if he is fussy or crying, I can usually calm him down by singing it! (I don't sing well at all so it must be my enthusiasm that he loves so much! lol :) We can't go anywhere without someone commenting on his size! lol, this kids rolls have rolls! ;) I adore every one of them and I know that once he is crawling and walking those sweet little rolls with disappear! We have been enjoying this wonderful weather by spending time at the zoo and park with friends and family!

He is so cute!! Those legs are to die for!!

Hayden had a spell where he screamed in the car at about 6 months. He did this for about a month or so. I would just cry with him because I didn't know what to do. I never figured out why. He never really liked the paci either. But, around 6 or 7 months we gave it to him (especially in the car) and he took to it. Now he loves it (not sure that is a good thing, but it has helped us a lot especially on long drives).
