A gorgeous day!

Jack, Yaya (my mom), and I took a trip to the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens yesterday. The weather was beautiful and Jack really enjoyed looking at all the different plants and water features. He especially liked looking at the fountain in the Rose Garden. We also took Little Man's Halloween coustume and took some great pictures. We had so much fun and Jack just LOVES the camera.

Mmmmmm... lunch!

Butternut squash was on the menu today.

Jack's been eating solids for several weeks now. We've had a lot of fun experimenting with different foods and I've really enjoyed cooking for Jack. I make all of Jack's food and it's really satisfying knowing that I'm responsible for everything that goes into his body. We've tried lots of different things and haven't had Little Man turn his nose up at anything yet. I think we'll try something new tonight... give peas a chance (ha ha).


As I was picking up the kitchen yesterday Jack was playing in the living room. I peeked over the couch and this is what I found...

Sneaky kid.

6 months old!

Jack turned 6 months old this past Sunday. I can't believe how quickly time flies (I think I've said that in every post every month, but still...) He's accomplished so much in the last few weeks and I'm amazed every time I look at him. He's sitting up, rocking back and forth on his hands and knees, eating solids (if you want to call it that), "talking", laughing, squealing, and the best of all, hugging. How blessed are we?!

We had to go to the doctor today for Jack's 6 month checkup and all is well. Jack now weighs in at an amazing 18 lbs, 6 oz and is 26.25 inches long. Jack did have to have some icky shots today which was NO fun. He'll be fine once he sleeps it off.
