J-5 Rogers Family

6 Months = ½ A Year

Our Jacoby Cade Rogers is 6-months old today. It is so exciting to think that in 6 more months, he will be a whole year old!

6-Month Stats:
Weight: 17.6 pounds
Length: 26.5 inches

Jaydon at this age was 17.0 lbs. and 27 in. so once again, Jacoby is a little shorter and a little heavier.
We will find out next Wednesday what the doctor has to say, and how he is doing on the growth charts.

He has completely outgrown his Baby Papasan chair - feet hanging over the edge for about a month now, but it's still one of my favorite places to put him, and one of his favorite places to be.

From last month to this month, not a whole lot has changed...okay, so maybe a few things!

1. He is sitting on his own for little spurts at a time, but I wouldn't consider it "sitting up" by any means. He should be there soon though - I can definitely feel it!

2. His mouth is FILLED with teeth...but none of them have poked through yet. I swear that child is going to get them all at once and then all "heck" will break loose from the pain he's in. If you open his mouth and feel, you can feel tons of teeth and you can see the top 2 front ones through his gums...I know it's almost time. He'll have a mouth full of teeth before we know it!

3. He is extremely aware of certain people - Mommy, Daddy, Jaydon and Aba for sure. He gets excited when any of us are in a room, so that's a good feeling.

4. He is definitely a boy and already eating us out of house and home! That child can eat! He eats 7 jars of #2 baby food throughout the day, along with about three 6-ounce bottles. At breakfast, he also has cereal. He just chows down, and it's cute to see him stuff his little face. He lets you know when he's full by not opening his mouth anymore...which usually isn't until the last bite or two.

5. His favorite toys are definitely his little mirror with music (Jaydon's favorite as a child too!) and a vibrating rattle. He is amazed by the ceiling fans in the house, too. Sometimes I wonder why I buy toys because I know that children love remote controls and cell phones. Oh yes...and his feet and hands - he LOVES playing with those, too!

6. He is scooting on his tummy, and he gets up on all fours and then drops. I love watching him as he tries to get up. He is so focused! He is a strong boy.

7. We will be transitioning from #2 to #3 diapers this week. The #2's are getting very "filled", (to put it nicely!) so it's time to move up to the next size. (Note: Pampers donates money to UNICEF {http://www.unicef.org/} so everyone make sure to buy Pampers, please!)

8. The boy has some lungs! He is babbling, yelling, screaming, and making noises non-stop...as you'll see below.
What more can I say?
I can't wait for the upcoming months when all of the cool stuff happens - crawling, walking, talking, and more. I love my little man!

Jaydon asked me last night why Jacoby always says "dada" and never says "mama". I had to give him the only answer I knew... "Because son, he's saving the best for last!" Ha! (Hey - it made ME feel better anyway!)

Have a great 4th of July, everyone!
The next "Jacoby Update" will be on August 2nd - stay tuned!

Enjoy the pictures and video below!
(Please excuse Jacoby's attire. I realized as I was blogging that I didn't have any recent pictures of him to post so I quickly took some. He was about to get a bath, so he's wearing a white trash {in our case, Hispanic Garbage) Onesie and it's stained...NICE! I don't even let my child hang out at home like that, so really...please excuse his wardrobe.)
Foot Loose...
The Eyes Have Won It...

YAY! I can finally answer something. From child studies I remember children make the Ba and Da sounds before the Ma and La sounds....that's why!!!! :)

Also, great to know he doesn't recognize me, I gotta work on that huh?
