The one with lots of pictures at the computer and the zoo


Rush is getting huge. His 6 month appointment is in about a week, and I’m sure he’ll be over 17 lbs. He’s really strong and loves standing up, jumping, laughing, jabbering, grabbing things (like my face, hair, or anything in my hands), putting things in his mouth, reading books that he can later grab and lick, and all those cute things babies do. Except I’m pretty sure he’s cuter than your baby, just for the record.

I can’t figure out how to work the gallery settings on my blog, and Jake’s gone, so they’re all posted in one big bunch. The first half are Rush playing with Jake at the computer and the second half are us at the Hogle Zoo earlier this week. Rush loved the carousel but did NOT love going through the tunnel on the train…

Bumbo Chair (or Bimbo Chair, as my mother misread…)


Here’s a few pics of Rush in his Bumbo Chair. These were taken 2 months and about 5 lbs. ago. He still likes the chair quite a bit and we feed him in it since we don’t have a high chair yet. On the menu is rice cereal and oatmeal. Bland city. But he likes it, and he FINALLY figured out how to eat it, so mealtime is much less painful now.
