I just had to share these cute pics! We had them taken at JCPenney with Josiah's cousins on my side of the family. We are planning on getting some official 6 month pictures made next month when he is 6 months from his due date and able to sit up on his own a little bit better.
I weighed Josiah today, and he is getting close to 15 lbs! He is too long to fit on the baby scale, so he may actually be 15 lbs since his legs were partially hanging off the end of the scale.
Have a great week everyone! Jason has ONE more class left (tomorrow night), and then he is done with school!!! YAY!

Don't Blink

Josiah is growing up so fast! He is now over 6 months old (5 months old from his due date). Last night he had rice cereal for the first time. I think he liked it because he was really excited - kicking his legs, "talking", and trying to grab the bowl while we fed him.

Here's a picture from after he was done with his cereal:

Other stuff he's been doing lately...
*He has rolled over from his tummy to his back a couple of times in the past week, but is still not rolling consisently. Not that I'm complaining - I know that when he does become mobile, our lives will take on a whole new level of complexity!
*He has been figuring out that he can make different noises. When he gets excited he sometimes does this high-pitched scream that can shatter glass up to 1/2 mile away.
*He is able to sit up by himself for several seconds at a time before losing his balance & falling over.

Josiah now knows who Jason and I are, enough to get upset if we leave him. We left him with friends for the first time last week (thanks Ray & Kate!) so we could go out to eat to celebrate our 4th anniversary. Ray & Kate reported that he cried for about the first hour we were gone before settling down. We had fun going out without him, but it was weird!

In other news - Jason has TWO class periods left until he is done with his MBA!!!! We are super excited. After next Wednesday he will be able to come home after work every day of the week! That hasn't happened very often in the past 2.5 years.

Here are some cute pics of when we were with Jason's family last weekend. Happy Friday!
