Six Month Man

Jack had his six month checkup this morning. He weighs 17 pounds and is 26 inches long. The doctor said she thinks he's the most active six month old she's seen. . . of course I don't have a bump on a log child! He's always moving, jumping in his jumper, playing in the exersaucer, or (his favorite) rolling around and scooting on the floor. He can get wherever he wants to go! He loves to be in the pool splashing away.

He is blowing raspberries constantly, loves to look at himself in the mirror, and is always happy and laughing. He loves to read books, play with his toys, and go for walks. He's eaten tons of food -- cereal, apricots, apples, peaches, pears, plums, prunes, avocado, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, squash, carrots, green beans, peas, spinach. . . I'm certain I'm forgetting something. His favorites so far are prunes, pumpkin, and carrots. He's not a fan of the green beans. At all.

He sleeps pretty much all night, but he does get up for a quick feeding. I know if I stopped going to him he would stop waking up, but I don't mind. And he sleeps until almost 8 in the morning, so I see it as a small sacrifice to make! He has the best personality -- smiling and happy all the time and only crying when he wants something. He's so much like Chris in his personality. He's very laid back and go with the flow. I'm so glad two out of three got Chris' very easy going manner! He's such a great boy, and we're so lucky to have him.

Here are some comparison pictures for you. Think they look alike?

So cute!! Jack looks like David so much. Henry reminds me of Sam in that picture....just a little chunky monkey!

I think David and Henry look alike, but not Jack. And I LOVE his dimples. So adorable!

He sounds alot like Olive in his personality. She's such a good baby, her brothers were good, but not near this good. She makes it hard for her to be the last baby.
