I'm having to think back on what J was doing at 6 months because things change sooo fast! I look at how much my sweet boy has already grown and it makes me sad and makes my heart sing at the exact same time. Is this just parenthood? Will I always feel like he is growing up so fast but always love his current stage so much? Such a strange thing.
These two pictures pretty much capture our boy at 6 months. That face? It kills me. He is so excited (and I can hear the squeal in my head) that he can barely contain himself.
At 6 months, Jonathan...
...has grown sooo much! He is sitting up on his own and is getting busy, busy, busy. At his 6 month check up, our doctor kept commenting on how busy our little guy is. I have a feeling my hands will be full very soon.
...has such a happy spirit. Yes, he has very cranky days and definitely lets us know when he isn't happy. But, he is typically very happy and ready to play. When his dadda walks through the door, he squeals, smiles, flaps his arms, and basically jumps out of my arms so they can play. Love it.
...is loving his solid foods! He eats oatmeal, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, peas, bananas, apples, and pears. This is such a relief to us because getting enough food into him was such a struggle early on. I make most of his food and really enjoy doing that.
... checks people out for a long time when he meets someone new. He is stares for a long time and then eventually smiles and is ready to interact.
...is almost mobile!! He is always up on his knees rocking back and forth. It will be soon. I can feel it.
... puts everything in the mouth. Everything.
And now for his stats. He weighed in at 17 lbs. 5 oz (44%), was 26 1/2 inches long (50%), with a big head (90%). Love every oz and inch of him.
It's been hard for me to keep up on this but am glad I have because I think I'm going to love it at the end of the year.
Have a great day everyone!
