My little man

I am pretty proud of myself at the moment, I actually got pictures of my little guy on the day he hit a baby milestone. Rare accomplishment for me. I am usually saying, yay my baby is 3 months old! Hope you enjoy these pictures of him from a month ago because that is the last time I picked up my camera. But this little shoot right here is the day my little guy turned six months old.

I had to get a few shots of him in the buff, it is hard to appreciate his many rolls otherwise. And really, if I had to pick two words to describe Rhode at this age it would be fat and happy.

He has most recently discovered his tongue, and it it is constantly dancing outside his mouth. Scarlet was tongue tied at his age so she never did this. It cracks me up all day long.

Rhode has also discovered the joys of finding things and sticking them in his mouth. For example, this flower.

But instead of embracing the world of baby food as his sister did, he usually reacts like this to new things in his mouth.

Still not interested in rolling over, in fact this picture is the closest I have seen to him even trying.
But he is starting to be a solid sitter. I love it when they can sit up by themselves. They are so much more entertained! At last check, he was up to 19 1/2 lbs. and is in the 85th percentile for height, weight and head. What a great six months it has been.

Oh I LOVE the rolls!! We think we might have found a baby that will give our Meg a run for her chubby. haha. Meg just finally rolled over a couple days ago, so you're little man isn't alone. Isn't this age so fun?? He's a cutie. big time.

Those rolls are great!! Okay so Rhode weighs more than Trip!! How funny!! Why aren't my babies fat. I was fat and so was Tyrel!! Trip eats all the time too!! He loves all food.

Wow... I don't know if I've seen a baby with rolls like that!! (Of course, how many babies do I really see naked besides my own, not many probably). Rhode and his rolls are ADORABLE! Isaac is and probably will always be a skinny one (I mean, look at Ned). I believe Rhode is the weight that Isaac was at 12 months. He weighed just barely enough to be able to turn his car seat around on his first birthday. Good for you with the camera too... those shots are awesome!

Rhode is so cute! You need to get Jon to photoshop him next to a shar pei. Rhode looks a human shar pei. I love fat babies. They look like they could survive anything! Happy 1/2 birthday Rhode!
