Half Birthday

Happy Half Birthday Oliver Jude! We didn't realize how full our hearts could be. Each day is a joy with my little morning lark. You wake me up with your beautiful smile and laugh at sunrise. You've grown a lot during your six months earth side. You're 18 pounds 11 ounces and 28 inches long.  You're on your way out of 6-9 month clothes and almost ready for 12 month because you're so long! Things you enjoy include nursing, pulling Papa's beard, your play gym, jumping, and visiting with the special people in your life.  You especially love being sung to. Your favorite songs are The Rainbow Connection, You are My Sunshine and Little Red Caboose. You've recently discovered Buster dog. You like how he hangs around your highchair while you eat! Pretty soon you'll be throwing him treats from up high. You like trying new foods. Your current favorite is peanut butter and bananas. You've been practicing sitting by yourself and standing.  You can roll back and forth eager to be a part of what's going on. Soon we will be chasing you around.  We're pretty proud of you.

  Love, Mama and Papa
