*6 Months*

Jacob just turned 6 months today! It's crazy to think that my kids are growing up so fast! Everyday I try to take it all in and enjoy him while he is somewhat small still. He is so much fun and are so greatful and blessed that he choice ryan and I as his parents! Since he started with collic at birth, it's been on occation rough 6 months, but he is getting alot better, and is alot happier!
The other thing that he was going through for a couple of days was "strike". He wasn't nursing very well cause he is so spoiled with the bottle that is a medium flow nipple. So I called Le Liche' League (it's a club.) And when I call and leave a message, some one anywhere in the U.S. calls me back. I talked to a lady from Minnesota and she gave me alot of points on what I could do. One of the suggestions were to take a bath with Jake, cause skin to skin is the best, so.,.. that is what I did. Well.. that didn't work very well cause Hunter was playing and putting his hand in the water and splashing so it was distracting Jacob alot and he would twist his body. So, I finally got out and the later it got, the more I got frustrated cause he was just not nursing at all and so I would pump and then give the pumped milk to him in a bottle.
Now, he is getting alot better. As long as he is hungry enough or tired, he will nurse. I just hope that I'm not loosing my milk supply. I guess I need to try harder to drink more fluids so that my milk supply will come in better.
Anyway... the new things that he has been doing are:
*reaching for everything!
*smiles and laughs alot*
*as soon as mommy puts me on the floor, I roll from back to stomach and get stuck, and then get mad cause I can't seem to roll back over yet.
* He loves to sit up. No more laying down!
*He loves his brother, Hunter and watches everything that he does and then laughs some more.
*he loves to watch t.v. with the family.
* he an excellent sleeper! Sleeps at 8:30 p.m. and gets up only once at 5 a.m. to eat. and then goes back to sleep till 7:30 a.m.!
*loves baby food. (pears, prunes, sweet potatoes, bananas)

I need to give him more green beans and veggies so that he will like them when he is older. :)
Well... i'm going to take some pictures of him so I will post them soon.
that's all for now.

up date

Wow! It's been too long since I up dated our blog, so while I have a short time, I will give some up date on what has been going on.
Hunter is going to school on wednesdays and fridays. He loves it .... i think. His teacher's aid says that he is doing really well. Ryan and I drill him every day with words that he can say... the words that he is now saying are:
mom Animal sounds:
cookie wolf
love you (wuv ooo) cow
mama (grandma) kitty
juice bee
apple (pple) dog
hello(almost clear)
baby (bebe)

Well... anyway... he is getting better! He says more than this, i just can't think right now.
Jacob is almost 6 months! He is constantly rolling and then gets mad that he can't roll back over!
Hunter and jake are like best friends! Hunter makes Jake laugh all of the time. His personality makes my day! He is so much fun and a blessing in our lives!
Ryan is busy with work and has gone back to school. He has about a year left and I can't wait to have him done!
I'm still working at the Provo Temple. I went from 20 hours a week to guaranteed 4 and then on call during the week. Things have been really tight but we have been so blessed at the same time.
that's all i have to report right now.

*5 Months Old

Jacob turned 5 months just after christmas. On Jan 3rd, I had him on the floor on his gym mat and all of a sudden he rolled! I got so excited that I scared Ryan a little bit!

Now, everytime i put him on the floor to play it takes him only 2-3 minutes and he is on his stomach! After a few minutes he gets frustrated and can't roll back over. It's kindof cute. I'm sure that he will figure it out really fast too.

Today, was Hunter's first week of going to Primary! Yes, I can't beleive that he is now a Sunbeam! I took him to class and soon as I was out of his sight, he cried so hard that big alligator tears rolled down his cheeks. I felt bad so I stayed with him during class. Then after that, it was time for singing time, and I left and went to R.S. and after church he had one shoe off and had been crying again. Anyway...I think that after a couple of weeks of going, he'll be better.

Here are some cute pictures that I took of Jacob eating rice cereal for the first time.
