6 Months of Sweet Baby James

Saturday marked James' 6 month birthday. What a chunka-hunka of love! I weighed him last night, and it looks like he's holding steady at about 20 pounds.

Current Achievements:

-is now rolling back to tummy AND tummy to back, he has started rolling all over the floor to get his toys.
-loves to eat solid food as long as it's in a mesh baby-pop holder. We've done bananas, pureed frozen sweet potato puree, frozen plum puree and his favorite fresh peach chunks.
-sleeps completely through the night every once in a while, I am still getting up most mornings at 4 or 5 to feed him, then he goes back to sleep until 7 or 7:30
-on a normal day takes 3 good naps
-had a GREAT! day in the church nursery today. Took a 2-hour nap and was happy the rest of the time he was in there. This is a major first for him; I get called out of the service or Sunday School most mornings to calm down a screaming baby. (what can I say, he loves his mama!)
-babbles up a storm!
-gives huge belly laughs for big sister
-is wearing 12-month clothes

Needless to say, we are just loving his presence in our family. I could chew on those cheeks all day! He is a constant reminder to me of God's faithfulness and provision and care and compassion.
