6 months old!

It was quite the celebration as we woke to an unexpected snow!! And not only the kid's first snow, but he hit the 6 month mark today as well:) 6 months old. First snow. First time eating peas. Teething. Sitting up on his own. Reaching for Everything. Doctors appointment for a well baby checkup. Dr says he looks good, weighing in at 15.5lbs, 26.5 inches long, and a head circumference of 17 inches. We had only given him rice cereal a few times before todays appointment. Since he had done well with that the dr gave us the go ahead to try other things. So we can home and celebrated with green peas! yippee. thats what i would want on MY 6 month birthday too - right!?

We took pictures of the kid outside this morning in the snow and they are too cute. Yet i can't load them onto the computer because our camera or the cord that connects the camera to the computer isn't working. I'm so disappointed but will post the most recent pics we took of him, which were made on Nov 16, 5 days before his 6 month mark.

And last but not least, the kid is sitting up on his own, even though he's terribly unsteady. He tries and realizes whats going on, and is SO proud of himself:) Here is a short video of him showing off:)

GD Adorable!!!! The black and whites are super. What software did you use to turn them b/w or do you have camera settings?

Michelle - Thanks! and Wow, jack was a big ole boy:) and he's still a cutie!

Julia - Awwe, Thanks:) My husband used his laptop to change the pictures (taken in color) to b/w. The program he used is iPhoto on the Macbook Pro Apple Laptop.

Oh my gosh. These are SO cute!!! I cannot believe how much he has grown since his little baby shower. You know, he's what started off my "baby fever" right? : ) I LOVE the little wobbly sitting up pic. Absolutely adorable. Now, I want a little boy!! Love and miss you!!
