I have decided that life is about as good as it can get. I get to do so much now that I am six months old! I can play on the floor in my bedroom and go exploring under my crib. I can sit in my big boy car seat and watch trucks drive past the car window. And today, I even got to sit up in the grocery cart like the big kids. Mommy had a special blanket for me with toys for me to look at. I'm sure the toys were great and everything, but I really didn't notice-I just couldn't stop looking around at all the people and all the things on the shelves. I was so overwhelmed, I just didn't know what to concentrate on. It comes from being such a big boy, I guess! I can't wait until the next time we go to the store.
I can finally do it! At least, for a few moments. I can sit up all by myself. Mommy sits me up and I can hold myself there without falling over. She keeps her hands close so I don't crash on the floor, but it's still fun to sit up like big people do!
This is Emma Claire. Remember when she was born about three months ago? Now she is getting even cuter and smiles more. Here we are, checking each other out. I like hanging out with my friend Emma Claire, except that when she cries really hard, I get scared and cry, too.
I have a whole lot to say these days! I like to say "bababababa." It's my favorite thing to do. I say it on the changing table. I say it in the car. I say it in my booster seat. I say it a lot when I am trying to fall asleep for my nap. Who needs other words when "bababababa" says it all?
This is my big buddy, Zachariah. He's a year older than me, and he came over to visit. Even though he's big, he still got down on the floor to play with me. He's so funny! He made me laugh lots and lots.
Here I am with Mommy. We are having fun taking pictures of ourselves. Mommy didn't want to post this picture because she said she was all yucky from exercising. But I told her, "Mommy, everyone's just looking at me, anyway."
Today I had a fun adventure with Daddy. Early in the morning, a long time before breakfast, Daddy got me out of bed and put me in my jogging stroller. Then we went running! He goes a whole lot faster than Mommy, and we had a great time. It was so much fun that I got really drowsy and went back to sleep. I hope he takes me running again soon!
Mommy and Daddy took me to the doctor today for my 6-month birthday. It was pretty fun to be the center of attention the whole time! Unfortunately, the doctor didn't let me eat his stethoscope. It looked yummy. (That word even sounds yummy!) In this picture, I'm finding out that I weigh 18 lbs., 10 oz. and I'm 29 3/4" tall. That's really tall, huh? (Daddy says that's higher than the 99th percentile. Daddy likes numbers.) Maybe I'll be as tall as Daddy when I grow up...or maybe even as tall as Uncle Todd!
