Half a year old!!

Today Silas turned six months old!!! My, where have those first six months gone? I know that pretty soon it will be six YEARS down the road and i'll think the same thing. Time is flying by! I am just loving watching my little man grow...what a blessing to be able to be at home with him! I am also growing so much closer to the Lord through this because I now can understand how much He loves us, His children. The love is so infinite and deep and can be so easily understood when you have a child of your own.

His six month checkup was also today and it went great. He weighed in at a whopping 19 lbs (well, 18lb., 15oz. to be exact :)) and is a staggering 29 inches long! We have a big boy on our hands! So big in fact that the pediatrician said that he's now probably too big for his infant carrier which means we're going to have to invest in a convertible car seat (Jess, I'll be calling you b/c you are the car seat information GURU!!!). Developmentally he is good too....even though he is STILL not rolling over. We are working on it, but he's just stubborn. Doc said it's nothing to worry about now, but he needs to be at least rolling from his tummy to his back before too long. He is sitting up pretty good too (that is, when you put a toy in front of him and pillows around him)! :)

I tried to get a pic of him smiling for his official six month pic, but as you can see from the pic below.....the photo shoot was cut short after just a couple of snaps of the camera!

This is him after I was working to get the gross cradle cap out of his hair with some stuff made especially for it. Well, as you can tell, it's totally greasy so i decided to do some hair stylin' (what can i say...i grew up with sisters!). The comb-over do was my favorite :)

And his too :) Ain't he a stud?

Uh, Aunt Jess can hardly stand it. He's too cute! Where HAS the last 6 months gone??

Call or email any time. It might be easier for me to email you my "list" of seats with the stats so you can take it shopping, or link to the seats and see them. It can get a little overwhelming. I'll get on that right now!
