Eating has still been a ton of fun! Jacob absolutely loves eating anything and everything we put in front of him-so I'm going to enjoy it while it lasts! His current favorite foods are still peas, bananas, and apples, but he has loved some of the combinations of foods we've made for him lately like blueberry/banana and carrot/apple. He is eating solid food at least twice a day and is down to nursing just in the morning. My supply tanked this month when Jacob went on a nursing strike New Year's Eve. Yeah, not fun and not what I had in mind, but he is taking formula like a champ and had a great six months of nursing!
Ugh, if it's not one thing it's the other! Just when he started sleeping through the night, the nursing strike and teething started. Our perfect sleeper is now waking up 3/4 times a night again...but has started taking naps at home! It's frustrating when you think you have a routine down and then everything changes overnight. However, we are going to go back to the Ferber method and hope that he will be sleeping better soon.
Christmas was so much fun with him this year! He has started sitting up on his own and loves playing with his toys this way. He constantly giggles and laughs, we discovered he is ticklish, and he has learned to "fake cough" to get our attention. It is an absolute joy seeing him develop! He still refuses to roll over all the way from back to belly, but I think it's because he hates being on his stomach still. He definitely has the physical ability to do it, but just refuses. Everything will come in time.
He continues to be the best baby ever...what more can I say?
