six months

Hello Friends,
These past six months have been glorious.  Sleepless nights, tasting new foods, belly laughs, breakthroughs, and heart melting kinds of glorious.  We love our little boy.  He brings sunshine to our lives and we are thankful to God for each hour.

Here a few photos from Ernie's 6 month Photo Session:

He loves when Papa comes home from work.  He smiles when he hears his voice greeting us from the door.
 Ernie is getting so strong!  He often props himself up on his straightened arms.  We think he is going to crawl soon.

Ernie loves to play and be silly.  The sillier, the better.  One of our favorite things is hearing his belly laugh!  

If you'd like to see the full photo shoot check out my photography website, here.

a sneak peek

Ernie Boy is already 6 months old!  We celebrated with mashed avocados and a new outfit :).  He sure likes avocados, and peas, and bananas.  He has liked every food he's tried so far!  
Here is a sneak peek from his 6 month photo shoot:
Thanks Auntie Teenie for the cute sock monkey!  
Thank you also to Grandma Jackie and Auntie Britta for Earnest's adorable outfit!

Stay tuned for more 6 month photos...

a birthday gift

My handsome husband's birthday was a few weeks back.  To celebrate his 27th year Earnest decided to give his papa something special.  Josh got to feed Ernie his first solid food!  I'm not sure who enjoyed the experience more :).  
Here's a glimpse of the exciting occasion:

Earnest was very eager to eat whatever was on the spoon.  However, when the liquidy stuff (it was mostly milk with just a sprinkle of rice cereal) finally entered his mouth he wasn't quite sure what to think!

After a few more spoonfuls though; he really liked it!

 The whole event came to a climactic end as Ernie reached for the rice cereal and dumped the rest of the bowl all over the table.  And that was that.
