Just a little slice of life

Samuel turned 6 months on Friday. We had his doctor's appointment yesterday and for those who are interested, here are his stats:

Length: 27 1/2 inches (75-90th percentile)
Weight: 15 lbs, 13 oz (10-25th percentile)

He is long and lean...he can't sit up yet (there is no fat to keep him sitting up :), but he rolls both ways, all over the place. He jumps like crazy whether he is in him Jumpster or not. Our arms get a work out when holding him!

Today I looked at his car seat and realized it says it is good for up to 20 lbs and 26 inches. Oops. No wonder the straps are really tight on our little guy. My sister-in-law is coming to the rescue with a bigger car seat for us to use.

Recently Samuel has eaten peas, prunes and squash. Lesson learned by mom: when wearing a white sweatshirt don't open squash while container is facing you. Soon you'll be wearing a white and yellow sweatshirt.

Just a little slice of life in the May household these days....

Any sittings?? :-)

I'm excited you found me in online and look forward to following your story unfold. It's a great journey!

There is another gal, Jess, that posts on my blog as well. She has babies just as we do: but six months apart. Mine are about eight. I believe your's will be eleven.

God has a great sense of humor doesn't he?
