Jack is 6 Months Old
So I am finally a half of a year old! So many things have changed in the last 6 months, it's hardly believable. I have learned and seen so many new things I don't even know what to make of it all! I think the last time I talked to you I was just barely starting to sit up, and I had just started rolling over from my stomach to my back. Weeeellll, I am here to tell you that I am a sitting and rolling machine!! I roll all over the place, and if Mommy and Daddy sit me somewhere, I can stay there and play for 20 minutes at a time without falling over. It is sooooo nice to be able to sit up on my own.
I have also been practicing my swimming strokes. I think Mommy said that I was a little scared of the penguin pool that Grammy Anderson bought me, but that was a fib!! I love hanging out in the pool and can't wait to go to the big kids pool. Mommy told me there was a wading pool close to our house, and the next free weekend we have, we'll be checking it out.
I also have a new swing on the deck. I really like it when Mom or Dad pushes me out over the deck- the higher the better! I can even face both ways. I think I like facing out more because there is a lot of neat stuff to look at behind my house.
I've also been eating a lot of solid food that Mommy makes for me. I've had peas (yuck!), green beans (yuck!), sweet potatoes, squash, avocado, pears (my favorite!), apples, and bananas. I like most of it, but I really wish they'd just give me pears and bananas all day, but they say something about vegetables being good for my health. I say, "Who needs them!".
Oh yeah, I went to the doctor recently and had my 6 month check up. Everything went well, except for the shots! I hate those things! I only cried a little bit, and I hope to never have to get a shot again. Here are my stats:
Head Circumfrence: 17.5 inches (70th percentile- it went up! Thanks Dad.)
Height: 26.75 inches (60th percentile)
Weight: 17.8 pounds (56th percentile)
Well, I know in the next month I'll be doing a lot more stuff, so I will be keeping you up to date! Talk to you again soon.
