Yes, I am fast asleep!

Mommy came in to check on my while I was taking a nap today, and I scared her a bit, because this is how I was laying. She almost panicked, but did notice that I was breathing, so she went and got the camera. I was just fine...but Mommy worries about me, because she loves me!

Aunt Anna's Birthday

Aunt Anna wanted to go to the mountains to go tubing for her birthday, so we (Nana and Papa, Uncle Philip and Aunt Lindsay, Aunt Anna and Bryson, Mommy and Daddy and me) went to Boone, NC. It was my first trip to the mountains, but I didn't see much on the way ( I slept the whole 3 hours!) We had fun staying in a hotel. Mommy and Nana stayed with me while everyone else went tubing. The next morning after breakfast, we had cake! (well, I didn't, but everyone else did). It was a really neat giant cupcake Mommy made (she even used Skittles for the sprinkles!) So this is me, with Aunt Anna and her giant cupcake cake!

28 weeks...look out Lily!

So here I am at 6 1/2 months. Mommy says I'm growing fast, and I'll be moving fast soon, too!
I really like creeping (as Mommy calls it) and trying to get to my toys on the other side of the blanket, and even try to follow Mommy around the room.

Mommy's excited, because my hair has finally started to grow again. (Mommy hopes I have enough hair to wear a bow for Easter.) I'm excited, because now my head will stay a little warmer, when I don't have one of my cute hats on.

Oh, I can almost reach her...Well, since I'm starting to be a little mobile, Lily had better watch out, because one of these days, I will be able to reach her, and then to chase her around!

I'm a me go!!

I've been working hard and building up strength...I'm on the move now! It won't be long before I'm crawling, and then I can really start trying out my legs. I love to stand. I am already pulling up when someone lets me hold onto their fingers, and I can even take a few steps. Mommy better get ready, because before long, I'll be mobile!

Bananas and a bath

For Christmas, I got these really neat little food nets and I finally got to try one out. Mommy put a piece of banana inside, and I got to suck on it! I really liked the way it squished out into my mouth! I hope Mommy lets me try other new foods this way too!

This is me in my cool high chair...this is where I get to sit when Mommy tries to get me to eat my fruits and veggies. I just figured out that I'm supposed to open my mouth when the spoon is right in front of me, and it seems to have made a big difference to Mommy...she is a lot more relaxed when I eat.

So I made a bit of a mess, and had a lot of fun, eating my banana, so it was time for my bath. Mommy just got me a new bathtub, since I had outgrown my first one. Now I can sit up and play with my rubber duckie and my cups! Baths are much more fun now.

Play Ball...

Since I can now sit up on my own, a whole new world has opened up...I can play with so many more toys and see so many more things. Daddy has been trying to get me to play ball with him, but I'm not quite ready for throwing and Daddy likes to bounce the ball off my head! He gets in trouble when Mommy sees him doing it. I don't really mind now, but maybe some day I'll get him back!!

6 Months Old!!

So I made it to my half birthday, and I heard that a lot of people stayed up til midnight to celebrate as soon as it officially became my half birthday! I, however, was sleeping peacefully in my bed, and Mommy and Daddy said they were in bed too, but lots of people were celebrating for me, because Mommy and Daddy heard fireworks going off, which made Lily bark...and I slept peacefully through it all.

In my first 6 months, I have been very busy. I have been to the beach and dipped my toes in the Atlantic Ocean. I have been on a big plane, I have already been to 4 states (VA, NC, IL, WI), and I've been to 2 weddings.

I have grown quite a bit too. I just had my 6 month check-up and found out I weigh 14 lb 9 oz and I'm 26 1/2 in long! I'm in the 25th percentile for weight and the 75th for height, but I am less than 5th in the weight/height ratio. (Yup, tall and skinny just like my parents.)
I have gained many skills the past few months...holding my head up, controlling my arms and legs, rolling from back to front and front to back, baby push-ups, sitting up on my own! Now I am moving on to crawling. Look out world, here I come!!!!

Me and Ava

So over the past week or so, I have had the pleasure of playing with my friend Ava a few times, which means that Mommy got to hang out with Ava's mommy Andrea...girl time!

So this is me playing at Ava's house.

And Mommy holding both of us.
