6 Months Already!?!

A whole half a year has gone by since my baby was born, and I don't know where the time went. We got his pictures taken on Saturday, and we'll post those when we get them, and today he had his six month appointment. His stats are as follows:

~Weight: 13 lbs, 9 oz, 1%tile (down from 2%tile)
~Length: 24.5 in, 2%tile (down from 7%tile)
~Head circ: 16.7 in, 16 %tile (up from 11%tile)

big smile on my half burfday

Okay, so he's little, anyone surprised? Have you seen me? Nathan isn't that big either, and hey, I wasn't even on the charts until I was about 6 years old, so this is doing great. Most importantly though is that he is healthy, he's never been sick (had the sniffles once) nor had an ear infection, he eats a ton and loves solid food, he is reaching milestones ahead or right on time, and he is the happiest baby anyone has ever seen. James has his two bottom teeth that are sharp! He can roll both ways and likes to roll everywhere, gives kisses, sits up all by himself, can stand, and most importantly, sleeps through the night, still! He had a little trouble at Christmas time with everyone there and so many new things around (and a growth spurt because he ate a TON of food while there), but after we got back home and back on a relative schedule, he is fine. Can you believe how incredibly cute he is! We are so blessed to have this little one in our family.

Just a happy kid in jammers

He's such a happy little guy. Time does fly and they get so big so fast.

I can't believe it's been six months either, and I'm not at all surprised by how tiny he is. You're right... the most important thing is that he's growing and healthy! I hope you're enjoying your new car! We need something bigger, but we're waiting until we have two carseats. In the meantime, road trips are awfully cramped! :) So I want to hear the rest of your "big news"! What else is going on over there??
