6 Months

Will is 6 months old today! I cheated and took his 6 month pictures last Sunday. I knew today would be a busy day and I wanted to take some with Chris, so we did them early. I think 6 months might be the perfect age to take pictures. We had so much fun doing them. The rest of his 6 months pictures can be seen here.

We celebrated his half birthday by giving him avocados (mixed with milk) for dinner. He didn't love them, but he didn't gag either. I'd say he did pretty well for his first taste of solids (if you don't count the time we tried to give him a carrot on a whim). We took some pictures and video taped him, but we haven't uploaded them yet...I'll have to post them later.

He also had his 6 month check up and shots today. He did really well with his shots. He just cried for minute as if his feelings were hurt, but seemed perfectly fine minutes later. He weighed 15 lbs, 4 oz (25th percentile) and was 25.5 inches long (20th percentile). However, he was 15 lbs, 4 oz when I weighed him at the hospital a week ago and the hospital scales are more I'm guessing he actually weighs a few ounces more.

I called Chris after we left the pediatrician's office to tell him about the appointment. This is how that conversation went:

Me: He said we need to give Will cereal.

Chris: Oh, like Cheerios?

Me: No! He can't eat Cheerios yet!

Chris: Oh, so what...Malt-O-Meal?

Me: No....rice cereal.

Chris: Rice Krispies??

Dear Lord, please don't let anything happen to me! I'm not sure Will would survive. :)

Denae - Will is so cute. The pictures are amazing. 6 months is a fun age. Time flies. Before you know it, Will will be 16 months like Jackson and running everywhere and getting into everything! Enjoy every minute!

I randomly came across your blog and was wondering how you made the white background for your pics. They are great! And the reflection is neat too. If you have time, can you email me at Sorry for the random comment!
