6 Months Old!

Steven turned 6 months old on Friday. I can't believe how much he has grown- he's not a little baby anymore. His 6 mo. stats at the doctor were: 16 pounds 4 oz. and 26 inches. He is doing well with solid food so we got the Ok to start meats and "stage 2" baby food- he's gonna love that! Steven's food repertoire already includes sweet potatoes, carrots, squash, green beans, peas, peaches, pears, bananas, prunes, and applesauce. He loves it all. Although, I do have to mix the greens and prunes with rice cereal for him to like it, otherwise he gags very dramatically (I wonder who he inherited that from). =)We met our friends from my women's bible study at the neighborhood playground on Thursday. Steven loves the swings so we went back with Ashley and Jackson on Friday. That time I had the good sense to take my camera for his offical 6 month birthday!
We got a surprise last week when Steven's first tooth surfaced on Friday. He also just started making raspberry sounds which is pretty funny with all the drool (well, I think it's funny and cute, Charlton thought this next picture was kind of gross). Then today, his second tooth popped though too! So, soon we'll have a picture of him with two bottom teeth. He's been a champ and the teeth haven't caused him to wake during the night (thank goodness!) but have been sore day during the day making naps harder to take.

Way to cute !!! Wow, hard to believe it has already been 6 months. He is so handsome, and how exciting... teeth !! So far we were still toothless :o) Kenna didn't get teeth until she was about a year old so I guess we still have some time.

Love the pictures at the park, he looks like he is having so much fun.

~Happy 6 months Birthday, Steven ~
You are a handsome young man and have a great set of parents !!!

He's so cute with his little hat on . . . we're so jealous . . . Hattie is 8 months and still has no teeth! I love the picture of him in the slide.
