holy cow, i can't believe my baby is almost 6 months old. where in the heck did that half of the year go? any other moms feel like pregnancy drags on and on then your little babies just grow too stinking fast?! As much as i miss J being a sweet newborn all swaddled and tiny, i'm loving seeing his little personality develop. We live in Rexburg, in a married student ward, so it's no surprise that there is a new baby born almost every month in our ward. While nursing J in the mothers' lounge on sundays those sweet new moms bring in their brand new babies and their little cries are so sweet, needless to say, J's cry is not-so-cute anymore, he's figured out the more noise he makes the faster mom moves, so he generally skips the sweet little coos and goes to full on screams. *sigh, but that's ok, most of the time he's a pretty happy go lucky kid. This chubby kid eats more than i do sometimes, i swear. He LOVES big people food. of course we don't share our food with him, but if he doesn't get to see us eat he'll cry. He loves rice crackers and bread, apple juice. He's started babbling really loudly at nights, and when he's sleepy, it's cute, but it gradually gets louder and louder until it's practically a yell, and it's usually at a time we need him to be quiet, like during scripture study or FHE. I like to think it's just because he's excited about the scriptures. :] J thinks the darndest things are funny, the kid laughs when you scare him. I know, crazy, he loves dad to "get" his belly and play "high in the air" (i know our names for games need a little help) i've never been one confident enough to act a fool to make a baby laugh, but i do for J, and i'd say it's worth it to hear the kid giggle, it's so darn cute it melts my little heart.
