Here they are in all their glory!! We were lucky, teething didn't seem to really bother him at all. And he does look so cute with teeth, don't you think?

A Sleeping Baby

As many of you know and I'm sure just as many do not, Jack used to be a great sleeper. Sleeping through the night at 10 weeks of age. Well we've recently experienced a regression and he started getting up 2, 3, and sometimes even 5 times a night! Every 2 hours or even less. It got to the point where I COULDN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE!! So Daniel and I tried some strategies and after only 2 nights... AHHHH! We have a sleeper again! And he's even better than ever! What a relief! And I'm no longer a walking zombie! Here are some pics so you can enjoy my sleeping baby, too!

6 months

Our little guy is 6 months! I can't believe how fast the time has gone. I still clearly remember being pregnant and anticipating his arrival. Daniel and I celebrate our 6th anniversary next month and last year, while we were in Mexico, I remember thinking - next year at our anniversary we'll have a 7 month old. And now it is upon us already. I hope I've enjoyed it to its fullest. I think have, it has just gone by too fast.
Some of his latest accomplishments are:
-getting teeth (as previously blogged - they aren't in quite yet)
-rolling over BOTH ways finally! (when we were in California, Jill's Gwen could do it and we kept asking Jack why he couldn't if Gwen could and I think he got sick of it) (and this morning I had laid him on the bed, I was RIGHT there, he rolled over and over so fast I had to run around the other side of the bed to catch him!)
-blowing raspberries
-sitting in the restaurant high chairs (with blankets stuffed all around him)
-sitting (with the help of a boppy)
-bathing in the big tub (in his duckie)
-and wearing bigger diapers :(
Here are some of his latest pictures. Some of them were taken with my phone so aren't the best quality but were too cute to resist.

Other California Highlights

There were plenty of highlights that went undocumented by photo in California but the ones that were taken are below. We miss our California family so much already! See you all at Christmas!
Meeting the Fernley cousins and getting a picture with Grandpa!
Meeting 2nd cousins and taking a great grandbaby picture with Grandma Gerry!
The 2 newest on Grandma Vicky's side, Jack (5 mo) & Taylor (9 mo)
Meeting all of the uncles!!
And getting to play video games with them!
The 2 newest on the Fernley side.
Baby Gwen is only 3 days older than Jack but about 50 lbs bigger.
Gwen is just as smiley as Jack and even more mellow!
They loved each other from the very start!

We went lizard hunting with Grandpa, Jake and Hallee.
We caught 4 lizards - one was a blue belly - and found a possum skull.

Here are a few more pictures of the week.
Being held by mom, dad and grandpa.
