Jacob - 6 months

Age: 6 months
Height: 27.5"
Weight: 20lbs 1oz
Milestones: Jacob has been sitting unassisted really well for a few weeks.  Now that he can do it, that's ALL he ever wants to do.  Sit and watch everything and everyone around him.  He still hasn't rolled tummy to back, but he sure wants to!  He has also started making crawling attempts/movements, but nothing so far (thank goodness).
Sleep: He's still sleeping pretty well at night - goes to bed around 7:30, wakes around midnight to eat and then wakes around 7:30 for the day. He's also still only napping 30 minutes at a time, usually 3-4 times per day.
Eating: He's still mostly breastfed.  We do 2oz of solids (usually a fruit) in the morning, and attempt 1oz of solids (usually a veggie) around 5:30 for dinner, but he doesn't really like vegetables (sounds like someone else I know...cough, cough...Josh). Foods he's tried include: sweet potatoes, squash, bananas, apples, pears, avocados, peas, green beans.
Clothes size: 9 and 12 month
Diaper size: Size 4
Best Moment: Gosh! We've done so many fun things this month, and he's just been so good! But I'd have to say his first Thanksgiving was really fun, and of course - he was an angel.
Worst Moment: He went through a wicked 6-month growth spurt about 2 weeks ago, that lasted about a week.  He was up every 3 hours at night. Owe! I wasn't used to that :)
Favorite toy (I'm adding this): He is currently obsessed with a plastic serving fork (yes, from the kitchen) and a Baby Einstein piano that his Uncle Doug & Aunt Jenny bought him. He's also really enjoying his Baby Einstein jumperoo.
Teeth: No teeth, and no teething!
Looking forward to: His first Christmas! He loves looking at our Christmas tree, and the lights on the house.  I can't wait to take him to church to hear all that beautiful music!
