6 months!

Baby Jack | Amy Tangerine | Photo by Ann-Marie EspinozaIt's Jack's half birthday today! It's true what they say, time flies when you're having fun. He's been delighting us daily for 6 months. He's a very happy-go-lucky guy who has been sleeping through the night for a month and half, which makes us very fortunate and nearly fully functional during the day. He started on solids a month ago and so far has only had vegetables. His first food was avocado (I know, technically a fruit), then green beans, carrots, butternut squash and peas. Though he only eats about 2 tablespoons or so, he is a good eater. He's still nursing well and gets a bottle a day usually around 5-6pm. We attend mommy & me class together once a week. He loves going on adventures and thankfully is back to being ok with falling asleep in his car seat. Bamboo likes him a lot and wags her tail and tries to kiss him, while Buster is still a bit apprehensive, though doesn't mind being next to him as long as there isn't major eye contact or swatting going on. Jack's hair is getting long and the mohawk is starting to fall down a bit. He still loves tubby time and is really into putting stuff into his mouth. No pacifiers for him though, he prefers his thumb. Other people's knuckles are fun for him to chew on as well. No teeth yet, but we are thinking any day now. He is now getting fussy when it's diaper changing time. And when he is tired he gets cranky as well. Most of the time though, he is smiling, talking - saying dadada during the week and mamamama on the weekends, which could be a coincidence, but who knows. He started making funny noises with his mouth - you know the ones I am talking about. He loves his hands and feet, being outside, and has started giving kisses. Or maybe he's just still looking for something to gnaw on, and my chin happens to be there. He giggles about every other day and it's our favorite sound ever.Baby Jack | Amy Tangerine | Photo by Ann-Marie Espinoza
