6 Months Old

On Sunday, March 4, 2012, my sweet Jack Alexander turned 6 months old.  He is already half way to his first birthday.  It seems like just yesterday I found out I was pregnant!  Before I know it he will be turning one!!

Ed and I celebrated his half birthday by taking him to the pool for the first time.  He loves bath time so much I thought surely he will love the pool, and I was right!  We only stayed for about 20 minutes, but it was a good first pool experience.  Plus he looked so cute in his little baby swim trunks!  When he turns 9 months we will start Mommy-Baby swim lessons, just in time for summer!

In honor of his half birthday, we also got him a birthday cupcake.  Ed and I ate it on his behalf.

Finally, the culmination of the half birthday, is the pediatrician check up.  He did great at his checkup, even though he had to get 4 shots, poor baby!
We have enjoyed every second of Jack's first 6 months and we have so many fun adventures to look forward to as a family.  As we enter into the second half of his oh-so-wonderful first year, here are his stats:

  1. Height: 28.5" (96th percentile)
  2. Weight: 16 lbs 10 oz (33rd percentile)
  3. Head Circumference: 17.52" (71st percentile)
  4. What's new: Rolls over a lot (from his back to his tummy and then gets mad because he is on his tummy); starting to sit by himself; Riding in the stroller like a big boy (no more car seat); screaming, squealing and babbling all the time
  5. Mealtime: Breastfeeding 5 to 6 times a day & eating solids 2 time a day
  6. Favorite foods: Pears and bananas
  7. Favorite Songs: "Trol Ol' Joe" and "Me You We"
  8. Favorite Activity: Bouncing in the jumperoo
