Happy Half Birthday, Shepherd! I can't believe my little doll baby has been in our family for a whole six months. My sweet boy is such a joy--so happy, content, and easy these days. I wish I could share him with each of you for a day, as you can't help but smile when you're with him.
Shep is loving food and doing so well with learning to eat. So far he has had bananas, apples, sweet potato and squash, and he hasn't met a puree he doesn't enjoy. The only "food" he doesn't love is previously frozen milk...this kid has quite the discerning palate. He's working on his sitting skills and can sometimes stay upright for a few seconds at a time. His favorite activity is exersaucer time--I think standing feels good to his adorably chunky thighs. He loves his mini Sophie giraffe, his sterling ring rattle, and some chewy books. He's getting interested in hair, which is painful for mom and the dogs since he knows how to grab on but not so much how to let go. Shep is the wiggliest, rolling-est baby around. He can barrel roll across the floor in seconds, so trying to keep him on a blanket and away from twin germs is proving to be impossible.
We are so in love with our little monkey man and look forward to seeing what the next 6 months have in store.
