Oh my goodness...has it really been almost 2 months since I've blogged?! Geesh! Obviously, life is in full swing here in our household! This mommy thing is keeping me busy-& I love it!
The latest news around here is that our little Jett man turned 6 months old August 1st! SIX MONTHS- I cannot believe it. He is getting such a personality, & is doing something new each & every day. He is growing so big, & while I grieve the fact that my baby isn't staying little, I also embrace the changes & fun we are having every single day! It goes by in a blink of an eye, & is the most fun I've ever had!
Here's what our little meatball is up to:
*At 5 months, we started Rice Cereal- he LOVED it!
*We gave up on breastfeeding due to him fighting it & refusing to nurse- resulting in him not gaining much weight, & my milk supply tanking. I am now pumping & he is getting breastmilk that way! It is working for both of us, & is a lot less stress on the whole family :)
*He is rolling over like crazy, but sometimes gets "stuck" on his belly- a quick "flip-over" from Mom or Dad, & we're good to go!
*He is sitting up on his own- that seemed to happen overnight. He occasionally will fall over, but is pretty solid most of the time.
*My newest favorite thing that he does- reaches for us! It is so sweet! He first reached for Jared when I was holding him. Now he will go back & forth between the two of us, & it just melts my heart!
*He FREAKS out when he catches sight of his bottle! I mean total meltdown like he is starving- have you seen his chubby legs? He's NOT starving, lol!
*At 6 months, we started his first baby food- we tried green beans. He wasn't so sure at first- but after a gag, some shivers, & a few funny faces, he decided green beans are yummo! We are going to try carrots next week!
*He is still sleeping through the night like a champ! He loves his bed & goes right to sleep when we lay him down. He has bumped up his wake-up time to 6:30-7 (used to be anywhere from 7-8:30) I told him 6:30 is as early as I will go, so I'm hoping he listens to his momma ;)
*He loves loves loves his Daddyboy. When Jared gets home, & Jett hears the basement door open, he immediately cries until Jared is in his sight scooping him up. I love it! (Jared just eats it up too!)
I am sure there is so much that I am missing- hence the reason why I should NEVER go this long without blogging again! I am so mad at myself. It just seemed that the summer FLEW by, & we were so busy having fun that I didn't stop to document it all, which I already regret. I will do better. I will do better. I will do better.
Well, here are a few pics!
