So, I am saying that Jake has said his first word... its "heeyyyyy." When we say "Hey," he repeats it back. Now, he doesn't do it all the time, but he does it about 40% of the time. SO, I'm claiming it! :) Of course, when he says "momma," I might change my mind and say that was his first word!
He also knows his name! You can say, "Larry, Mike, Tom" and he doesn't look. You say, "Jake" and he looks right at you! He's a genius baby, I know! :)
Jake had his 6 month check up today and is doing great. He's 19.5 pounds and 26.75 inches long. Big guy!! He's happy and health, and we're feeling pretty dang lucky! His shots today were, of course, no fun. But, Jake was a trooper! He cried while she was giving them, but was smiling seconds later.
He has two teeth now and is completely facinated with them. He'll rub his tongue over them and play with his mouth constantly. I'm not sure, but I think he might be getting number 3 right now. He'll have a mouth full before we know it. He's also sitting up on his own. We still put pillows around him, just in case, but he does really well by himself.
He also LOVES Roxy, our golden retriever. Everytime she comes in the room, 100% of his attention is focused on her. She's a great dog and lets him pull on her when he wants. He chases her down when he's in his walker...its pretty adorable.
Here are a few pics of Jake from the last few weeks...
