Jackson's Sixth Month

Could we ever have known, Baby Boy, when you were born, how much we could ever love you and how much fun you would be?
These past 6 months have been amazing, full of tired nights, dirty diapers, and those bright blue eyes. At 6 months:

Your smile is the best. You have a big one for just about everyone.

You love the water! Your little legs kick so fast underneath that float!
 You love to look at the fish at Petsmart. Mesmerizing.
 The laundry basket is one of your favorite places to play.
 You loved the swing at the park.

 You loved playing in the water with your toys on the back porch. You were not ready to dry off!
 Your first trip out of state was to Georgia! We went to Atlanta. So what if it  was Mommy and Daddy's anniversary? We didn't want to leave you at home!

 You are just about as cute as can be in your jammies.
 You liked tolerated Ikea.

 You loved swimming again.
 You had your 6 month check up. You are 24 and 1/4 inches long and 16 lbs, 7 oz.! You loved the doctor and nurse but your favorite activity was ripping up the exam table paper.
 You found your "little boy" paci. It was like finding a new toy!
 You loved playing with your Uncle Brian.
 and snuggling with Aunt Stacey.
You loved watching Uncle Brian play softball.
You are liking new foods! You have eaten bananas, sweet potatoes, apples, pears, rice cereal, and oatmeal. You are still nursing and that seems to be your preferred meal still, but you seem to like trying new foods.

You sit up well, roll around, and are starting to pull forward from a sitting position to your knees. You're about to be mobile! You sleep about 10 hours at night but naps are not your favorite thing. You love to jabber and talk and sometimes it sounds like you are singing. You love bath time now and like playing with your toys.You love puppies! You giggle hysterically at a puppy even sitting across the room. You are playing more purposefully. One of your favorite toys is your stacking rings. You like the different colors and pulling the rings of the stack.

I could go on and on. Your Mommy and Daddy think you are amazing and love getting you out of bed every morning. We never dreamed there was love like this. Keep growing, Baby Boy. Know that you are loved and the most special thing to us.

So Excited!

Hurray for the Olympics starting tomorrow! Can't wait for some gymnastics and swimming, which are my favorites. I will be tuning in to various other events throughout the Games. I just love the spirit of the events and of course watching Team USA win gold! You may now call me a nerd. :)
