Brady's half birthday

Brady turned 6 months on the 6th. I only wish the first 6 months of pregnancy had gone this quickly!  He went to the doctor for his well visit today.  He weighs 18 lbs, so he has doubled his weight since birth, and he is 26 and a half inches long, putting him the in the 75% for weight and 50% for height.  He is doing great, meeting all his milestones for this age, just eating, growing and being a happy boy ready to conquer the world like his older siblings.
Here are a few of my favorite shots I took of him this morning.  He is such a happy baby, he smiles when he wakes up in the morning and smiles when I put him to bed at night.  I don't remember any of my other babies being this joyful.  He is very social right now and smiles at everyone.  If a stranger doesn't notice him, he smiles bigger trying to get their attention.
I guess he is used to me looking at him with a camera in my face, I think he finds it funny.

I picked up this Vikings sweatshirt at a yard sale last week.  In Kentucky, Minnesota Vikings gear is hard to come by, especially at yard sells.  It's definitely going to be too small for him by winter so I went ahead a took some picture of him in it, regardless of the fact that it was 95 degrees outside!!

This picture is really too blurry, but I had to share.  He started making this face over and over this morning before I ever even got the camera out.  I don't know why he kept making it but it was cute and adorable.

We've have moved on to carrots from peas and he is almost as crazy about them as peas.  He is rolling all over the place and scoots a little.  This is such a great age and I wish we cold linger here a little longer.  Love you Bubba!

What wonderful pictures! He's such a cutie and I love the red hair. I didn't know Joseph when he was that age, but Brady kind of looks like him. Is he sitting up by himself? He looked pretty confident in the picture sitting all by himself! I miss him and you guys! Give Brady some hugs and kisses from us (Mylee would literally give him 1,000 kisses if she saw him- she loves babies [right now]) ~Erin
