No. . Seriously?! He's Super Cute

We recently had a photo shoot done for Micah's 6 month birthday.  We wanted some family shots and some pics of Micah to document how much he's changed.  We used Ashley from Painted Peacock Photography and she's super great and super nice!  She posted a preview of the pics and I can't wait to see the rest.  They are just so cute!

How Cute Is My Kid?!

Micah has learned a new trick.  He's sticking out his tongue and sort of "licking" the air.  It's so stinking adorable. . . I think so at least.  You don't really have to agree with me but just tell me you agree with me.  ;)

He has since associated a sound with it but I can't seem to capture that on video today.  If this doesn't make you smile just a little bit then you need Jesus to give you a new heart!  ;)

Happy Tuesday!

365 Project - Week 1

So, I've been pretty good at keeping up with my 365 project so far.  If you don't know what I mean, check out my original post.  I've successfully taken and posted a picture for 8 days now! Woohoo!  That being said, I know that, realistically, I most likely will not be able to post the pics every single day but I fully intend to at least take the pic every single day.  Ya'll keep me accountable.  If you haven't seen any new pics on my gallery. . . then call me out (nicely though, I'm fragile). 

So, here is a recap of the first 8 days of 2012.  We took down our Christmas decorations, fed Micah green beans, babysat our cousin's baby, built a fire, played with Micah, got my nails done, took 6 month photos with Micah, and had lunch with my parents (among other things that didn't get documented). 

What have you been up to in 2012?!

Micah is 6 Months Old

Wow, these 6 months has flown by.  I know I say that every month, but it's true.  It doesn't feel like we have a newborn anymore.  We have a full-grown baby (haha). Micah has changed so much in this one month, it's crazy. I'm again late on this post.  December was so busy with traveling multiple times and many other activities.  The pics are kinda random but all documenting Micah's 6th month!

At his 6 month appointment, he weighted 15lbs. 1oz. (14%) and was 25.5" tall (24%) and his head size is in the 87th percentile.  He got some more vaccines this time and was diagnosed with Eczema, but the medicine the Dr. prescribed has already made a huge difference.

Micah cut his first two teeth December 3rd.  We were shocked.  One day they weren't there and the next they were.  So crazy.  I can't really get a good picture of them because he's always rubbing his tongue over them, which is so cute!

He has really started to sit up almost completely on his own.  He can hold himself up without much help but still not good enough for me to walk away.  Plus, he doesn't know how not to face plant when he falls.  Even with help, he is loving sitting up and playing with his new Christmas toys.

Micah also learned to roll over from his back to his tummy.  This is such an accomplishment!  Now he's rolling all over the room and even all around in his bed.  He likes when he rolls over to his tummy but he gets tired and has to lay face down on the floor for a rest sometimes.  It's so cute!

Finally, Micah experienced his first Christmas, as you know, this month.  We had such a good time with family and everyone showered Micah with lots of fun toys and cute clothes.  He is a loved little boy and for that we are so thankful!  But all that love tuckered him out!

It seems like Micah is going to be a very busy little boy once he can become mobile. He doesn't really snuggle, won't let you rock him to sleep and is constantly moving around when you're holding him.  It sometimes feels like he's trying to get away from us.  I have a feeling once he learns to crawl, I'll never ever sit down again.  So. . . take your time little man!!!

I have a lot more pictures so I'm just going to post them all below.  Enjoy!

It's A New Year

Happy 2012.  I'm still alive if you're wondering why I haven't posted in awhile; but I've had a lot going on.  Anyway, like every year, I've made a few goals for 2012.  One of them is to start the 365 project.  You take a picture every day and post it in a gallery.  I think it's a cool idea to document your life for a year and also to make yourself a better photographer - which is one of my goals.  I'm also taking a photography class in February, which I'm very excited about.

So. . . 3 days into the new year I'm, in fact, keeping up with my 365 project.  This pic is called "Green beans are super gross".
