6 Months Old! Already!

I have been meaning to post this since Friday, but some things came up (I will explain in a little bit) so I am just getting to it now. The little man turned 6 months old the other day. He even had a doctor's appointment that day and got his shots. Two in each leg. What a trooper he was. He weighs 17 lds and 3 oz. which is the 34% for his age. He is also 26 inches and that puts him in the 23%. The doctor says that he looks great, but we do have a little concern. The other day I was feeding him then all of the sudden he tensed up his entire body and started to shake. He didn't seem like he even knew that he was doing it, but it sure scared me. I thought at first that he was having a seizure. I wasn't sure what to think about it though after that until it happened two more times in the last week. So at the doctor's appointment I was told to time it next time it happens and if he keeps doing it a couple of times a week we have to take him in to see a Neurologist. I really hope that it is nothing and that we don't have to worry about it anymore. I will keep you posted though.

He still isn't rolling over. I really don't mind though. I can still put him on the couch and on the bed and not worry too much. He likes his food finally. He really likes sweet potatoes and squash, not peaches though. Just like his big sister, I couldn't get her to eat peaches either. There is a little problem with that too, he hasn't pooped in almost 2 weeks. Just in the last few days it seems to bother him. I have tried almost everything. Hopefully he will get over this soon too.

I totally love to just sit and hold him. He loves to cuddle and loves to smile. Man, that kid can smile! He can really make my day. He is a tough kid when his big brother comes around, he gets squished, pulled, sat on, and anything else that little dude can think of. He only cries some times.

Well, I tried to get some cute pictures of him on Friday, but he was so busy watching the other two play. So here are some funny pictures of him watching the world around him.

It is so hard to get a cute picture of the three of them, but this one makes me laugh so hard every time I see it! I love it! It is so real!

So there you have it. 6 months! Wow that time has flown by!
Just a little update on what is going on with me.... I got an early birthday present, my hubby got me a laptop. I love it, now that things are set up and working right on it! It is so fun! It will be so much better for me to get things done. Happy way early birthday present to me!

Oh Shannon!!! He's so adorable!!! What beautiful pictures you take. Can you believe how fast it all goes?? Samuel will be 6 months here in a couple of weeks. He's rolling and he's also a wiggle worm...I'm afraid once he starts crawling I'll be in trouble because he just seems like he wnats to get into everything, ALREADY!!! We are all enjoying him so much and the big brothers are GREAT with him. Samuel is also enjoying his solids like your little man.

I can't believe it! He is so adorable, just like the other two! Hope you find out good news when it comes to his health.

Gosh it makes me so sad how fast they grow up. 6 months takes forever to come when you pregnant but flies by when they're here!!! Hailey had the same "Pooping" problems I had to give her apple juice in a bottle at 4 months. Maybe it'll help. Scarey when you don't know what's going on with the babes and they can't tell you yet. Love when they can finally talk. Hope all is well. We'll be thinking of ya.
