For me six months feels like a big milestone to me. He's no longer a tiny baby, he's moving around the house on his own, playing with his toys, eating solid foods, and really beginning to show us his little personality. He isn't crawling, but this boy can move! He gets all over the place all the time. Because he's so squirmy we haven't figured out sitting up yet, why bother when you want to be exploring the world. He has mastered eating his baby food, so far just cereals, bananas, and sweet potatoes. He's loving them!
Today I took his pictures right after his afternoon nap...he wasn't impressed with my timing.
He did warm up to the camera though. This is a mild little smile from Gideon though, when he really smiles he does so with his entire face. His smiles are infectious, I can be so tired and grumpy because he'd keeping me up and he will smile at me and I can't help but smile back and give him a kiss.
Poor guy is dealing with some eczema with the change of seasons so his face is pretty splotchy. That's okay though, he's still cute as can be!
