Baby Jack- 6 Months Old

Weight and Height- 
Jack now weighs 14.14 and is 24.74 inches long!  He's still wearing lots of 3-6 month clothes. Most of the rompers I bought him are 6 months and he is swimming in them. They look so darn cute. 

Jack continues to go back to his group of specialists. We continue his nebulizer and percussion therapies 2 times a day.  He had a slight cold this month so we took him to the specialist and he received some extra medication through his nebulizer. He is feeling good lately! He will be getting some blood work and chest x-rays in the next few months.

Jack has been having a difficult time sleeping lately. We have been trying to transition him into his crib and it has been tough. He has been struggling with teething too. It has been tough for the both of us. He has been waking up several times a night. He has started rolling over in his sleep too. 

Jack barely cries.He is such a happy little boy. He only really cries when he is receiving his breathing treatments. He has also started crying in the car.  When he can't see me it gets him upset. If I give him my hand he will usually calm down and fall asleep. 

It's growing so well and it is getting lighter. 
I think he may be a strawberry blonde.


Jack is wearing 3 months. He also fits in 0-3. The rompers I bought for the summer are all 6 months. They are all so big!

Jack is nursing whenever he is with me. He only seems to nurse for a very short time and I feel like I'm always feeding him. I pump all day at work. He takes 7-8 oz bottles every 3 hours. He wakes up 1-2 times a night for food. 

We have one down. Most days start at 5am. We begin with this treatments and follow that up with a feeding. Our nights usually contain another treatment and feedings. We all go to bed around 11pm. Overnight is another story! Jack wakes up often at night to eat. He hates his crib and wakes up at let 3 times a night when we put him in his crib. He sleeps much better in bed with us or in the cosleeper!

He is so incredibly happy and friendly. Jack reacts to people he is familiar with and its usually a huge smile. He is now interested in his cousins and smiles at them when they play. He is so friendly with my best friend's little boy. They laugh and smile all the time when they are together. 

Jack went to his first concert in the park. He saw a Beetles cover band. He LOVED it. 

He LOVES being in the water. He even went under and LOVED it. 
Bath time is a favorite too. 
Jack love dogs. 
Jack loves to imitate others. He will cough and giggle when he hears others. 
He is obsessed with phones, iPads and remote controls
Family- He loves his grandmas and grandpas. He always smiles at mommy and laughs when daddy makes funny faces. 
Cartoons especially Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood and Dinosaur Train. The theme to Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood stops him from crying in an instant. 

He is madly in love with dogs, big ones and little ones.
He adores his uncle's pit bull Cinco and she loves him too. 

Breathing treatments
Being in his crib
Being in a different room than his mom and dad. 

Is exhausted all the time. I'm having a tough time. I feel like I have finally hit the wall and I'm tired all the time no matter how many hours of sleep I get. I still hate being at work. Every hour I'm away from him I wish I was with Jack. I want to experience so much with him and I just feel like I'm missing a lot when I'm away. I'm sure most working moms feel the same way.

Sweet Baby Jack!!! Going to bed at 11 would kill me!! LOL This Momma is in bed at 9 nightly I am lucky to see 10 on the weekends, ha!!

Life as a full time working Mom is hard. Some days I am fine and the next I cry all the way to work! It sucks!! I feel so guilty. Can we just win the lottery already?! Hugs Momma!!!
