Sitting up- Yep January 31st he sat up for the first time on his own. What a big boy he is now. He is such a cute little petite thing it is so cute to see him sitting up all by himself. He had his six month appointment and was in the 25th percentile for height, weight, and head circumference. Dr. Pickens said that is just fine and that he is growing as should be.
Eating solids- I started out with the good ole butternut squash and pears, and he loved it. He chowed down and enjoyed every last bite. It might have been because both helpings were fresh from my Baby Food maker and he dug that! Now the frozen stuff just isn't the same. Ok sweet boy, I can't make you fresh baby food everyday!
Cuddles- He is such a sweet little cuddler. So I admit I have spoiled him a bit and rock him to sleep for his naps but if you knew how little he sleeps you would be doing the exact same thing. He loves to be held and loved on. So I enjoy it every bit as he does!
Starting to reach- When he is in a position or spot he does not like, he will reach for me. For example if he is in his bouncy chair but wants mom to be holding him, those little arms go up like "get me out of here." It is pretty cute.
Rolling- Yep he sat up before he rolled. I was a little worried because it was taking him so long to roll, but one of my good friends who is a pediatrician said they don't even consider rolling a milestone anymore. So that made me feel better that we were not missing out on anything and Jonah is right on schedule.
Life is pretty exciting around here. It has been a long day because our heat and A/C both went out! AHHHH. So Jonah and I have been hanging out in the kitchen all day so the guys can work on getting everything installed right above Jonah's room of course. Yep we have been in the kitchen with heaters pointed at us all day. Oh fun times. So because of the noise throughout the house Jonah napped a whole 10 minutes this morning and then 15 minutes in my arms this afternoon. Oh my it might be a long evening, but I think they are suppose to be done done in 2 hours. Anyway here are a few pics of the little munchkin!
For the first time since Jonah was born I finally see a little of me in him. I really didn't think I saw Tim or I in him. I have thought all along that he looks like a mix, but in these pictures here during bedtime stories and totally see me. Funny how everyone can tell you who your baby looks like but you don't see it. Now I do:)
