Jonathan at 6 months

Length: 28 inches
Weight: 18 lbs. 9.5 oz.

Jonathan continues to be such a happy boy. He's just the sweetest baby... so easy and such a smiler. In the past couple weeks he has started sitting on his own (for short amounts of time). And just yesterday he started rolling over (back to tummy). He did it a few times today too, and each time he got upset when he found himself on his tummy. He hates being on his tummy.

We have started feeding him cereal... which he doesn't really like and doesn't really eat. But today I felt like we were making some progress. I think he actually swallowed a couple tablespoons worth. We'll keep trying.

He sleeps about 8 hours at a stretch at night, and takes 3 naps during the day. I feel like he should be sleeping longer at night by now. But the doctor reminded me that every kid is different and 8 hours is just fine.

Overall, he is just a joy. He loves jumping in his Johnny-jump-up (or his "Jonathan jump-up") and he loves when people talk to him and pay attention to him. He smiles readily, even at strangers. I think he's going to be fairly social.

We are so thankful for our precious Jonathan. He lives up to his name, "God's gracious gift."

What a precious smiley guy. I love his little tongue smile. He looks strong and healthy, and he's grown so much since we've seen him.
