Six Months Old!

Yesterday was Chase's half birthday! It seems like the last 6 months have gone by so quickly, but I also feel like Chase has been around so much longer than that! He woke up right around 10:30 last night (the exact time he was born) so I could wish him a happy half birthday! Ok... so he didn't really wake up for that.. he really just wanted a little mid-night munchie. He finally cut his first tooth over the weekend. I was standing in the middle of the aisle at the grocery store. He was crying, so I decided to put some orajel on, and there it was! Sharp little tooth! I was so excited, I jumped a little... then noticed that people were giving me strange looks... so I continued shopping.

We also went to Picture People for his Christmas photos last weekend. He was very cute. I don't want to give away the photos until the Christmas cards get sent out, but here's a sneak peek (this is not the card, but just a little fun I had with Photoshop):

I'm so ready for Christmas. I can't wait to put the tree and decorations up! I think having a child brings so much more joy over the holiday season- seeing things through his eyes as he experiences everything for the first time. Looking forward to eating lots of turkey tomorrow (sweet potatoes and squash for the munchkin)! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

A Day of Firsts

Today was Chase's first time trying my homemade baby food. I made carrots and squash. I don't think he liked the carrots very much because he was gagging on them! We'll try them again later. I think his teeth were really bothering him today. It was also Chase's first time getting a haircut. I buzzed the back of his head to get rid of his little mullet that was beginning. It really stood out because most of his hair is very thin and light colored, but the back was really dark and thick. It looks much better now. And, today was Chase's first time showering with mommy! We wanted to clean him off from his little haircut excursion. Overall, it was an exhausting day. I don't know who's more tired, me or him.... well, I guess Chase wins because he fell fast asleep at 6:45 pm! He's been sleeping 11-12 hours straight, so I'm feeling blessed for that! He's approaching the 6 month mark very quickly (one more week)... where does the time go?

Weekend Dinner Party

Chase got to have a fun evening out with his girlfriend, Sierra. We had a fun time at Heather and Sohrab's appartment in Waltham with Jenna, Isaac, Aidan, Sierra and Lindsey. It's fun seeing the kids grow up together!

Feeding time!

Cuddle time with Lindsey!

Giggle time!

Fall Fun!

Life has been very busy these days, and I've been awful about keeping up with taking pictures and blogging. Here are a few of my fall favorites.

You may have noticed that sticking out his tongue is his favorite thing to do. I think he learned that from daddy.

Swinging with cousin Lily!

Huge Weekend Blowout!

No, it's not a sale at Macy's....

It's Chase's poop.

This is just what exploded out of the diaper. I guess those prunes really worked.

p.s. Sorry for not posting in 2 months. I've been a little preoccupied with the above-mentioned matter.
