Jackson Reed is 6 months!

Jackson Reed More
March 31, 2015
It's been 6 months since this little buddy entered our lives. And it's been a really fun 6 months!
Jackson is the easiest, most laidback baby I have ever been around, which has made the transition from one child to two that much easier.

Jackson has the BIGGEST hazel eyes and light brown hair. We think his eyes are going to stay this color - he'll be the only one in our family that doesn't have brown eyes! Jackson is sweet and smiley. He rarely cries, loves to snuggle, and is happy playing on the floor and rolling around with his toys.

We chose Isaiah 30:21 for Jackson's life verse:
"Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”
We pray that he will always hear that voice...and follow it.

This baby LOVES to eat and has tried tons of flavors so far! Bananas, pears, apples, corn, pumpkin, squash, green beans, green peas, sweet potatoes, and blueberries. He really likes everything except the green beans and honestly, I can't blame him!
Gentry Claire LOVES him (though she wasn't so sure those first few weeks!) and can really make him laugh. He watches her every move when she's in the room. I think the feeling is mutual.
Jackson's 6 Month Stats:
Weight: 16 lbs. 3 oz.
Height: 27 3/4 inches (95th percentile - whoa!)
Eats: 7 oz. formula 4x per day and has veggies/fruit 2x per day
Sleep: Usually 2-3 naps per day and sleeps from about 7 p.m. until 6 a.m. each night
Clothes: Mostly wears 6 or 9 month sizes - mostly 9 because he's so long!
Favorites: his paci, playing on the floor, sitting up (with help) and looking around, being outside, and being rocked at bedtime
We LOVE this little guy and are thankful to have him in our lives!
