Happy Half-Birthday Jackson!

Whaaaaat?????  My baby boy is 6 months old!!!  Cannot believe it.

This teeny little newborn...
Jackson- 1 day old!
Has grown into an ornery, curious, happy baby!

So here's all about my little dude at 6 months old!

Weight/Length: 18lbs 6.5oz  25in
Clothing Size: 6-9 months
Diaper Size:  Size 3
Feeding: Still breastfeeding (and it's still going great), nursing every 2-3 hours.  We started cereal (oatmeal) at 5.5 months so he gets about a tbsp of cereal now in the late morning and then around dinner time he has a veggie (only one so far is peas!) he loves food (both solid and nursing!)
Milestones: Rolling over, pivoting in a circle while on his tummy, ALMOST sitting up by himself (still needs me to spot him lol), can put his toes in his mouth (lol), good hand control, can reach, grab, and throw.  Still no teeth yet (but we are teething!)
Sleep: Not the greatest.  Usually wakes up 3ish times a night.  Right now we are part-time co-sleeping.  He starts the night in his crib and then usually after his first or second night waking we bring him into our bed.  He is getting better at taking longer naps, and we are trying to gradually stretch his time in his crib. 
Likes/Dislikes:  Pretty much the same.  He loves his toys and activity things (like the jumperoo, playmat, etc), he loves stroller walks and being worn in the ergo.  He loves people in general especially mommy and daddy.  Doesn't like to be alone, and doesn't like sleeping alone.

Here's his 6 month video update!

I just can't get over every day what a blessing this little dude is.  Being a mom is sometimes exhausting but I look at that little face and it makes it alllll worth it.  He brings so much joy to our lives!!!
