Jonas celebrated his half-birthday last week with a trip to the doctor for a checkup and a few immunizations. He weighed in at 16 pounds, 12 ounces, and measured 27.5 inches long. Even though I feel like he's a big boy, all of his measurements fall right around the 50th percentile. He's not a great sleeper and the doctor advised me to stop feeding him during the night. I am happily accepting this piece of advice although it's much easier to nurse him and put him back to bed than to make several trips up the stairs to offer him a pacifier. It never fails that he starts crying (again) as soon as I get back in bed! Oh well. I'm hopeful that he'll start sleeping better once he starts eating better. As you saw in a previous post, he's not a huge fan of cereal or baby food. Just yesterday he started opening his mouth when he saw the spoon, so hopefully that means he's getting the hang of it.
He's getting pretty good at sitting up and loves playing with toys, especially Elliott's cars. He wants to be in on all the action around here, even if it means that his brothers are tackling him! It's so fun to see him interacting and showing more interest in his surroundings - even the pillow in his chair can be exciting!Hard to believe 6 months have passed already. I can only imagine how crazy things will get at this house in the next 6!
