Ready for Christmas!

We can't wait for Christmas around here and we're excited that Dad has a week off after Christmas!! Yah!!
Jimmer turns 6 months on Christmas Eve and he's doing pretty well. At his doctor's appointment on Monday he weighed 15 lbs 11 oz and was 26 1/2 inches long. The doctor said that his weight is normal for a baby born under 7 lbs. And apparently Jimmer has a big noggin. Hopefully his body catches up with his head soon :).
Jimmer was sleeping through the night for about a week and then started waking up again (once or twice a night). At our appointment, Dr. Freestone asked how he was sleeping and then told me that I needed to let him cry at night because he is just waking up out of habit now :(. Last night we let him cry and the crying lasted on and off for about an hour and a half. Hopefully it won't take too many more nights to get back to sleeping through the night because it just broke my heart. I'm trying to tell Jimmer it was the mean doctor's fault. I don't know if he believes me.
We also have to schedule an ultrasound for the back of Jimmer's neck because he has a fatty lump back there. The doctor thinks it is just fat around some lymph nodes, but wants to make sure it is not a cyst. Don't know how he'll treat it if it is.
Other than that, James and I are just enjoying life with Jimmer and getting excited for the holidays. Not really the snow...but the holidays. I'm already talking about how I can't wait for summer, and we just had the first day of winter...yikes.

Jimmer has been practicing his sitting up skills lately. He's getting better by the day. (At first I wrote "spitting up", but Jimmer doesn't need to get better at that. He's already a pro.)

Eating, Rolling, Playing...

Warning...lots of pictures!

Trying rice cereal for the first time

Loving the jumperoo

Playing and rolling

Trying squash

Jimmer is 5 months now and he's growing so fast. He definitely thinks he's big now. Lately he's been eating rice cereal and squash, rolling all around, laughing, playing in his jumperoo, jabbering, and scratching things. His favorite toys are my cell phone, the remote control, and the wipes box.

Oh and for 4 months Jimmer weighed 13 lbs 10 oz and was 23 3/4 inches. His doctor doesn't really tell you the percentiles, but when I looked them up I think he was about 25th percentile for weight and 10th percentile for height. Definitely not a really big guy. But hopefully with this baby food eating he'll beef up :)
