(Matt with his new “Jack Pack”)
I think the biggest change this month is that Jack really feels like a kid now. Whether it is how much older he looks in his clothes or how he “talks” to us like a kid, Matt and I look at each other and ask where our baby went. And I have a feeling I am going to say this every month but this has been my favorite so far. Jack is just so much fun that I can’t believe I got so lucky.
I don’t think I realized before becoming a parent how babies’ little personalities really appear early. He certainly lets us know when he thinks we are funny. He also is not hesitant to let us know what he doesn’t like. Right now the big offenders on his list include: diaper changes, putting on clothes, and having morning snuggle time cut short.
His likes this month include: bath time (still loves kicking around), chewing on tags and his shirt, silly faces and funny voices, and this toy from Grandma and Grandpa
Last week he and a little friend worked on passing a ball back and forth. I love to see his interactions with other little people. This weekend he cracked up as another friend’s dog kept running by him. I think it melted Matt’s heart a little. Maybe a dog (or two) will be in our future?
Sitting is going really well. His only recognizable word right now is baa-baa (directed at nothing in particular), and he rolls all over the place. He still only has the two bottom teeth.
We have our 6 month doctor appointment this week so we will get his height and weight stats then. I feel like he had a big growth spurt in the last couple of weeks though, so I’m pretty interested to see where he falls. We bought some baby cereals over the weekend and plan to start those soon.
Quick comparison of the past monthly shots:I feel like Matt and I have changed a lot over 6 months too…probably in ways that are too deep for me to think about today. But seeing how silly Matt has become (no one can make Jack laugh like Matt) makes me understand why so many friends said they fell even deeper in love with their husbands after children.
Thanks for sharing in the past half year. I’m sure the next half year will be full of lots of adventures.
