6 months

How did half a year go by already? Jack is 6 months old and I can't even remember when he was tiny. A friend brought her 8 pound baby over and he looked tiny. Was Jack ever smaller than that? Yup, but it seems impossible now. Holding this little guy (who weighed 16 pounds 1 ounce on his birthday) now makes my arm go numb.

He can't quite sit up on his own but he's working on it. He has no interest in rolling over all the way.

He loves to read books (when he's in the mood) and splash in the bathtub. He does not like getting dressed after his bath - I think he's going to be a naked toddler. He watches his dogs & cat intently and is learning to pet them.

Jack also discovered how to jump in his jumperoo this month and has me wondering if a baby can give himself shaken baby syndrome from exuberant jumping.

He's surviving basketball & football season and even sleeping through his daddy's yelling at the defense...or offense?

And he doesn't yet mind when I smother him with kisses.

Jack is (by the time I got this posted) 6 months and 9 days old.

Speaking from my (obviously limited) experience, they'll still let you kiss them when they're five, but you have to be willing to fit the kissing in around the playing.
