6 months

On Feb. 4th Jackson turned 6 months! (That went fast!) We were in MN when he turned half a year and then he has been sick, so I am just getting around to doing this post.
At his 6 month check-up he was 6 months and 1 week.
he weighed 19 lbs 4 oz 85th %le
Ht. was 27.6 inches 85th %le
and head was 17.5 inches- 70th%le
He got 4 shots, which he was not happy about. He cried pretty good when he got them, then he stopped and would just start crying again off and on until we got to the car. Poor baby. Luckily he had a nice long nap when we got home. This is him after his nap checking out his bandaid on his leg.
At 6 months he is a pro at sitting up. He loves to sit on the floor and play with toys. He also loves to motor around the kitchen in his walker and jump around like crazy in his jumper. He loves food. He eats all of the vegetables, but squash w/ corn is his favorite. He's not so sure about fruits yet, but he'll eat pieces of a real banana. His Dr. said there are new food guidlines and that the only thing he can't have until he's 1 is honey. So he's tasted yogurt, bread, potato soup, etc... and loves them all.
He's a relly good sleeper during the day. He usually takes 2 good naps, or 3 short naps. He goes down really easy and loves his crib. At night it's a different story! He goes down well, but then he usually wakes up about 45 min. later and needs to ne reswaddled or burped. Then he's up every 2-4 hrs. Uh! I think we'll start letting him cry it out when he's totally over his sickness.
He loves his big sister and thinks she's pretty funny (most of the time!). He loves to grab her and they even roll around together on the bed. He also likes to pull her hair. She doesn't like that too much! On Feb 13th he cut his 1st tooth. He was the exact same age Londyn was when she got her 1st tooth, to the day! He also said his 1st word the other night, "mama"! He was sick and up in the middle of the night. Cody was holding him and trying to get him to stop crying and while he was crying he said "mama"!
I can't believe the first 6 months have come and gone. But I am excited to watch him learn and grow over the next 6 months!

The 1st week of Feb. we went to MN with Cody. He had some business meeting Wed.-Fri. and then the rest of his family came out for the weekend to celebrate his grandma's 90th birthday!
The kids did great on the plane. The hard part was getting through the airport with all of our bags, 2 carseats and a stroller! I'm sure we looked really funny!
Londyn had a BLAST playing with her cousin Charlie. He lives in Las Vegas so they don't get to see each other very often.
This is Jackson at the birthday party. He figured out how to put food in his mouth by himself. It was pretty funny. Except he destroyed my roll!

Mall of America

I finally fulfilled my dream to go to the Mall of America! So cool! Next time I go I want to go with money to shop! This time we onlyhad about an hour so we just took Londyn to the amusement park.
Her favorite ride was the orange roller coaster behind her and Jackson.
This little coaster was pretty lame.
And as you can see she was not excited about the last ride. It took you staright up and then dropped you several times. She hated it!!
