six months

Just pretend this was posted 13 days ago. =)

My baby is now 6 months old. Wahh!!!! I just want to make it stop! He's getting so big and developing his own little personality. A few tidbits of info for me to remember:
- he weighs 16lbs and 12ozs
- he's 26 inches long (when does it go from being "long" to "tall"?)
- he has 2 teeth
- he can sit up by himself for a split second but then he topples over (it's actually kinda cute to watch - don't worry he's perfectly safe!)
- he LOVES to hear himself squeal (LOUDLY!)
- whenever someone new comes over to talk to him, he just smiles and has this flirty little look to his face (a small amount of drool, dimples, bright eyes and a big smile are usually his weapons of charm)
- he's still spitting up a lot but we're working on that with soy formula and cereal in his bottles
- he LOVES baby food, in fact I think he'd take a full diet of baby food and perfectly happy w/o formula
- whenever he watches us eat he looks longingly at our food (poor kid!)
- he reaches for toys and gets very mad when they're out of his reach
- he can scoot/roll his way towards something if he wants it bad enough
- "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" is his favorite song
- he loves to hear that he's pretty and that he's loved (literally - "you're so pretty" and "i love you" always make him smile and laugh)
- he very rarely does a full-blown belly laugh, mostly it's just a half laugh (only his Daddy can get him to really laugh)
- his favorite toy (and mine!) is his exersaucer, he probably spends more time in it than he should LOL
- big brother is still a favorite source of entertainment and ALWAYS makes him smile
- he's started the "empathy crying" - if Dylan is crying about something you can count on Jackson starting to cry pretty soon afterwards
- he loves to get in the bathtub and he's just learned how to kick the water and make it splash
- he's realized that he's a separate person and loves to play with other people's faces
- he loves to look at shiny things like aluminum cans, jewelry, etc.

Sorry for the novel there. You're welcome to skip over all that to get to the best part - the pictures. He's such a cutie!! But then, I'm biased. =)
The quilt he's laying on was a gift from the fabulously talented Amy Hummel. This girl is Supermom - she quilts, she decorates, she scrapbooks, she's a photographer, she does it all! Thanks so much for the quilt, Amy! We've really enjoyed it.

I can't believe he's already six months old! I love all the little facts about him. The one about him squealing is my favorite! And I love his passion for food. I can't wait to see him eat some finger food.
