Six Months and Merry Christmas

My baby has been six months old for 24 1/2 days. And until yesterday, I hadn't taken any pictures of his six month old self. Somewhat shocking--I know!! We did attempt to take some pictures of him in a cute basket. However, apparently, the basket wasn't very stable and he tipped over on his nose and that was the end of the "photoshoot."

So yesterday, despite the fact that my baby has a fever and a terrible cold, I attempted some pictures again. Sounds like a great combination, right? Now before anyone sends child services to my door for not cuddling my baby when he wasn't feeling well--please know that he has been well cuddled in his sorry state. His fever was down (thanks to some infant ibuprofen) and his tummy was full. He was actually being down right pleasant. And because there is no sound with these pictures, no one can hear his little scratchy voice so in a few months no one will know that he was sick in these. Oh, wait, I guess it is now documented on the internet. Oh well!

(Sorry about the foot, Laurel. I just love little chubby baby feet, though, and couldn't resist!)

Did you ever squint your eyes at the Christmas tree when you were young? Do you remember how it made the lights fat and star-like? Well these last pictures remind me of doing that when I was little. I hope you all have a MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Since I am rarely in pictures, I thought I would include this self-portrait. Ignore the "real-life" in my living room.

Thanks for the foot shot, Gayle! Actually, baby feet are okay. They are still little and sweet. It's the clod-hompers on adults that make me shudder and gag! But Jacob's little toes are cute. :)
