Half Way to One

I can't believe that Jace is six months old. Part of me feels like he has been in our world forever, while the other part feels like we were just at the hospital bringing him home! He is the joy of my life ... and it kills me to leave him every day! It is so fun to watch him grow up and get better and better at new things. He is such a doll :) We go to the doctor's tomorrow for his well visit, so I can post all of his stats then.

At 6 months I can ...

At 5 months Jace mastered the roll from back to belly. Since then, he won't stay OFF of his stomach. Anytime we put him down he always just flops over -- he even prefers to sleep on his belly. While on his belly ... he looks like a frog out of water. A frog out of water that can only travel backwards! He is mobile ... but only in the negative direction. {But as I tell my geo students ... distance can't be negative -- it's still positive movement :)} Jace is a good eater -- he will down anything he can get his hands on. Sometimes he even tries to help you get the food into his mouth faster than you currently are shoveling it in. He has tried the following: Butternut & Acorn squash, peas, green beans, carrots, sweet potatoes, sweet potato & apple, yams, plums, bananas, and will try pears at the end of the week. I make all of his baby food and am having a great time doing it. Jace is happy {almost} 100% of the time. He has a smile that will just light up a room. Jace loves to talk, sing, giggle and laugh. He has his ticklish spots and if you hit them just right ... he'll laugh and laugh and sometimes even squeal. OH -- and his eye goobers cleared up! FINALLY!!

Here's a recap of the last month
Cheering Mom on before the race.

Me and my DADDY!

Wow ... all that running tuckered me out! It was probably because my dad came in 1st!!

He is so cute, I love all of those pictures. It is so crazy how time goes so fast when they are small. Great job on a wonderful boy.

He is such a cute happy little guy! He reminds me a lot of Leah, she had chubby cheeks and was always smiling! Happy babies are great!

Jen, Jace is so darling and healthy and wonderful. He always looks clean enough that he glows -- Where to you buy your baby polish to make him shine?!!
