6 months old!

Silas turned 6 months yesterday! Josh and I can't believe it's been half a year already!  

He can hardly believe it either!!

On one hand it's gone by in a blink of an eye, but on the other, it's as if we've never lived life without him!

And this whole sitting up thing, he's got that mastered. He's been able to do that for about two weeks now.

He's out grown his baby tub! He is way to long for it, so now he gets to enjoy the big boy bathtub.

Josh has a lot of fun taking pictures of our little water baby last night as he splashed around and played with his fishy and duck.

We wanted him to be nice and clean for his appointment with Dr. Jones this morning.

We had an early morning appointment and got the low down on Mr. Silas.

At six months he is...

17 lbs and 6.2 oz (50th percentile)

28.25 inches long (90th percentile)

and has a head circumference of 43.5 inches (95th percentile)

Dr. Jones said in height he is the size of a 9 month old, which explains why he is rapidly out growing those 9 month clothes and is wearing lots of 12 month items!

She was very impressed with Silas and his movements and abilities. We talked about moving from the infant carrier to a full size rear facing car seat since he is so close to maxing out the requirements for his current carrier. I guess I know what Mommy and Daddy are getting Silas for Christmas! I know he'll be spoiled rotten by his grandparents and Aunts and Uncles, so we'll be buying him the larger items that he needs vs toys that he'll play with.

We finished the appointment with hugs from Dr. Jones and then shots from the nurse. Silas was very unhappy with the shots, but as soon as they were over Silas was more than happy to cuddle with me and fell asleep on the way home.

We are looking forward to Thanksgiving next week, our trip to Kentucky the second week of December, and then Christmas! It's so hard to believe that it's the holiday season already!
