Spending time with my boy

The other day it was beautiful outside, so I decided to take William out to play in the backyard. I turned the waterfall on, laid out a blanket w/ toys on it, & let William enjoy.He loves playing with his blocks from his aunt RachelHe's sitting up so much better on his own. (I love the pink flowers in the background.)He loves watching the waterfall:Love that little guy:And I think he loves me too.He's starting to lose his baby look & turn into a big boy.Making sure I'm still in the room - he doesn't like being left alone.Playing peek-a-boocomplaining:happy again:Eating sweet potatoes - I think they might be his favorite (even though the look on his face might not show it).

Tehachapi Visit

Here are a few pictures of our trip to Tehachapi. My battery died, so all the really good pictures were taken on Dennis' camera.

6 Months

William is 6-months-old today! He went in for his shots, & he started screaming with the first poke (he had to get 3 as well as the rotavirus). He weighs 15 lb 15 oz & is 26 1/2 in. He's a lightweight for his age, but in the 50th percentile for height.
William loves to play w/ his feet & hands, listen to me sing "Old MacDonald," "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star," & the "Itsy Bitsy Spider" (he loves the hand motions), rolls over in both directions, sits up pretty well on his own (I still stay close by because he doesn't completely have it down yet), sticks his tongue out & drools a lot, gets "pee shakes" (or at least that's what it looks like), throws his hips up in the air & grunts when he's on his back & wants to be picked up, likes to talk by sucking air in instead of blowing it out, hates eating solid foods, loves his bottle, & is officially sleeping through the night (we've been letting him cry it out for the last 4 nights, & the last 2 nights he slept almost 12 hours w/o waking up - 8:30 to 8:15 w/ us waking him up to eat one last time at 10:00 before we went to sleep). We love you baby boy!

Swing, Bear, & Backyard

This last week, we went down to my parents' house: this is one of Will's new favorite toys to play in while we're there. He was exhausted, & it only took a few swings for him to fall asleep.I dressed Will up in his fuzzy bear outfit today - he's got to wear it while he can before it gets too hot! (Don't judge me for not being able to pick just one photo of William: I'm his mother, & as such, I'm at liberty to post as many pictures of him as I want. How can you expect me not to? :)
"Why I oughtta . . ."Our backyard: finally, pictures of the grass.The tree on the patio is a lemon tree (I've always dreamed of having one) - we just need to buy a pot for it.Close-up of the landscaping: there's a bird in the "little Christmas tree," but it's hard to see. I was just so happy that he chose our backyard to play in.
