At this point, Jarin is "chatty", even though no one can understand him.
When put on his back, it takes only seconds for him to roll over to his belly. While he cannot crawl yet, if he wants to get to another side of the room, he will actually roll over there. Cords and plastic bags are his favorite toys... :sigh: much to the dismay of his parents.
At this point, he has moved to "solid" foods. Solid is defined as banana, carrots, sweat peas, sweat corn, and peas. We have a very funny video of him attempting to eat peas... I did not realize a baby could react that way to food, I thought it was more a psychological response of "older" people, like 2 year olds!
Speaking of media, I know a LOT of people are wondering where the pictures are, and I have a lot of them, and will have them converted and put up to a new system (same address, however, you will not have to change any bookmarks or the like). It will take me a little while, however, I shall comment when this is complete and ready, and I am sorry it has taken me so long.
Today, Friday, Jarin was taken in for his six month check up. He currently comes in at 27" (up 1.5" from 7/13) and 15lb 12.5oz (up from 13 lb 11.5oz on 7/13, meaning he is gaining a pound a month!) He got his shots, and recovered quickly from it. His next appointment is scheduled for December!
Jarin currently sleeps rather well, even though when it is ready for bed, he normally wails out when he is tired and ready for bed. There have only been a few times when he did not stay asleep as we would like, or would wake up and stay up at odd hours.
At this point, his hair is extremely long, so it does not seem to have slowed down, and while many babies born with lots of hair seem to lose it, this is not the case with Jarin.
