Jacob is 6 months old! He is really growing and changing so fast these day.
He is almost sitting up on his own now. He has been able to hold himself up for a while now, but only for a few seconds before he tips over or folds forward. His balance is getting much better. He can stand for as long as he wants while holding onto our hands. Even though Jacob still wants to move so badly, he still hasn't shown much interest in crawling. He just lays on his tummy while kicking and moving his arms, all off the ground, and whines to be moved. If the goal was to swim, instead of crawl, he looks like he would be going great!
I think his new favorite thing is Oscar. He loves him! If Oscar is in the room, Jacob is watching him and usually laughing. He loves to grab his hair and pull as hard as he can. Oscar has been so good; he just sits and lets Jacob do whatever he wants!
Jacob still hasn't said any recognizable words, but he talks all the time. I've even heard his mumble in his sleep! He really likes to give hugs and touch faces. As sweet as this is, it can be dangerous. He has actually wiped my contact out before.
He is still taking 5 bottles a day and has worked up to a jar and 1/2 of baby food as well. So far, he likes most everything we've given him, but he seems to like fruit better than veggies. He is also still napping well during the day. Sleeping a night has been kinda iffy, but I blame a lot of that on teething. He doesn't have any teeth yet, but his gums are still swollen and he pulls at them in the evenings.
I don't have his official 6 month stats yet, but I will post again after his check-up next Wednesday. I do have a 6 month picture!
