Foto Flashback

As I was searching on my computer I came across these from Miles' 10 day photo shoot. I can't believe how tiny every little feature was on him. These are some of my faves from his uncooperative moments.

It is crazy how one picture can bring about so much emotion, but I look at the photo below and beam with gratefulness and love. I think I'm married to the most wonderful man and daddy ever. I love how I still get tingly inside when he kisses me.

I think it is really awesome that Tim and Miles have such a special bond and that they get to spend so much time together.

Comfortable in daddy's arms.

Obsessed is an understatement, because what goes into my child's mouth/tummy is on my mind ALL THE TIME! The last couple of weeks I've been obsessed with making my own baby food. The above picture is hardly 1/5 of what I have stored in my freezer right now. After I was done and all the cubes were ziplocked away I stood back and looked at what I had done--I seriously think I was beaming--I was so proud of myself. It's too funny what makes me proud these days. I've also made apples, plums, carrots, blueberries, melon, cauliflower, and broccoli (of which the last four he can't even eat until he's 8 months old). Miles' fave is apples and butternut squash mixed together and his least favorite is (no surprise here) peas. However, he still eats the peas, but vocalizes his dislike while he swallows--it's pretty darn funny.

Woweee 6 Months?!?!?

I cannot believe where the time has gone. Before I know it he'll be running around making his own rock climbing gear and trying them out on our trees in the backyard (something Tim did when he was 14 years old). There are no other words to describe how we feel about this little guy--the last six months have been the most amazing and memorable ever! I can't imagine our lives without this little peanut. What did we do with our time before he came?!?
This kiddo likes to sit like a big boy...

...stand on his own...

...and play with all of his toys. Playing takes some serious concentration.

Tim has started calling him "blubber chunker butts". Not sure why that nickname has stuck, but Miles giggles when he hears it.

Although this isn't the most attractive picture for Tim or myself I couldn't resist how cute Miles' face looks squooshed up against mine. We just love this kid.

6 Month Stats:
Weight: 15 lbs (9th percentile)

"Mmmm...I like the taste of leaves"

Too cool for school.
