Jack: Six Months

Age: 6 months

Weight: 19 pounds
Length: not sure
Size: Mainly 6-12 months, but he's wearing a few 12-18 month outfits
Hair: starting to get a little long over his ears - he might need a trim soon!
Teeth:  We have been waiting for teeth to come for months now, and we are *maybe* seeing the first peek of a tooth, but who knows, Mommy is wrong a lot!

Sleeping: Jack has started sleeping through the night again!  Yay!
Eating: We have officially started solids.  Jack ate avocado every day last week, and has been trying sweet potatoes this week.  He definitely prefers the avocado, but we're going to keep trying on the sweet potatoes.  He is still loving his breastmilk, too - he doesn't want anyone to touch his bottle when he's eating.
Movement: He has finally started rolling back over from his belly to his back.  He can also pivot around on his belly to get to one of his favorite toys.
Milestones: First airplane ride!!  We went to visit Grandma & Grandpa Winters in Florida and Jack did great on the plane.  Daddy hopes that Jack loves flying as much as he does.  He also went to the beach for the first time on our trip.
 Favorite Toys/Activities: Now that Grandma & Grandpa are back from Florida, Jack had to get his own jumper for our house - he loves jumping more than ever!  He also has become attached to a little orange blimp bath toy.  He will search through his toy basket until he finds it.
Dislikes: Falling asleep by himself - Mommy and Daddy can't figure out how to get Jack to sleep without laying down with him.  
Words & Sounds:  He is definitely signing for milk now, and he is babbling constantly - lots of "dadadada gagagaga"
