Wow! I'm Six Months Old! - A Post from the Real Baby

My mom and dad have been pretty busy since we moved to our new house.  I guess it's a lot of work to have a cute baby like me around.  I just turned six months old and I'm into all sorts of stuff.  I have two teeth now, but I won't open my mouth wide enough for Mom to get a picture.  I like to mess with her that way!  I thought I'd share a few pictures of what I've been doing lately.  As usual, I have lots of visitors.

Grammy Marva came to visit and take care of me during the garage sale. She couldn't believe how much I loved avocado! I guess "back in the day" babies didn't eat avocado! Mmmmm!

Grandma Mary & Grandpa Bill came to visit me, too!

Grandpa Bill is teaching me how to fall asleep on the couch!

I think my Grandpa Bob could have taught me that, too!
I'm also getting to be very mobile! I'm backing myself all over the place!

And when I can't get myself out of a jam, I get mad!

Mom says it's only a matter of time before I get my arms and legs going forward--sometimes you have to take a few steps back first, she says, just like in life!
I'm grabbing at things a lot, too. Look what came tumbling down at the yarn shop!

Luckily the "yarn ladies" weren't mad!
I've been a little fussier lately because of my teeth, I think, so Mom's been hauling me around in this get-up.

She says it's easier on her back, and I don't mind because I get to go wherever she goes.
Paddy and I are still best friends and we are starting to play more and more. He doesn't play with my toys, but he brings his to me -- see his deer antler? Not the best toy for a baby, so Mom has to watch us carefully!

So, that's what I've been up to. Sort of a lot for a six-month old, and I've still got lots to learn and lots of new food to try!
Hopefully Mom will get in gear and do a post on our new house soon. The remodel turned out really great, and my room is almost done, too!
I hope you have lots of fun this week!

  1. Baby is getting cuter every day!! Sounds like you're having quite an adventure. Also, Marva looks great. I haven't seen her for years and it looks like she is going strong!!

  2. Hi Kristi Lou,
    Such a cute post. Love the pic with Marie Claire backing herself into the chair in the background. She's a smart cookie, and a great blogger as well. Hopefully the teeth fussing will get better. Can't believe six months have passed already?
