Jude Mark : 6 MONTHS OLD

Jude is 1/2 a year old. Yes, he is already 6 months. I am amazed... he is the sweetest little babe. We are so in love with him!

Jude weighs 14lb 5.5oz - In the 5th percentile! Way to grow baby!
He is 26 1/2 inches long, too! Long & Lean.
He makes the sweetest faces and his eyelashes are my favorite. I love how he bites his lower lip and loves to blow bubbles. He is too cute for words. Everyone comments on his bright, blue eyes. I love them!

He can ALMOST fully situp by himself. Here he is grabbing his blanket, ha! So funny!

Jude still loves being outside... going on walks... he isn't crazy about the grass though, ha! Just when I think we have a "schedule" my bug likes to switch it up on me. He just LOVES his sleep it cracks me up. I love my sleep too so I can't blame him.

He decided to not want to nurse for every feeding anymore as of 1 week ago. So now I just nurse him early in the morning and sometimes at night otherwise he takes a bottle. He has been EXTRA fussy with his bottle and will go 4-5 hours in between before wanting it. He LOVES his solid foods and would eat those for every meal if we let him. Must be like his dad... loves his food :)

He is still a happy, happy baby! He loves life and I can already tell his personality is developing. He is chill, calm and relaxed. He LOVES buttons, zippers, clasps anything he can grab... too funny!
Another big thing is that he LOVES being on his tummy and will scoot to get things. I think crawling may be in our near future. He can't quite figure out his arms but his Thurston thighs are sure strong enough :)

Milestones this month:
** Always on his tummy - wants to crawl!
** More solid foods (bananas- constipated him :(, pears, sweet potatoes)
** Dropping a few feedings

Dear Jude,
We love you baby boy!! I am so happy we have had 6 months with you :) I love every day I get to spend with you and watch you grow. We are so thankful you are gaining weight and growing stronger. You are the sweetest bug around. We love our jujee bee. KISSSSSSES!

Glad to know I'm not the only one with a long and lean babe. People often ask if we're feeding him, but he just isn't a chunky baby! And Jude's blue eyes really are so beautiful and striking :-)

Ria he is so precious! I can't believe he is 6 months already...where does the time go?!

I absolutely love watching him grow! We had the same problem with bananas here. Apples, pears help to un-constipate :) I found that around this age when Jackson would refuse a bottle/feeding and go longer he was either growing or teething. Schedules always change, sounds like you and Josh are doing well :) xox
