Happy 1/2 Birthday Diego!

I can't believe how fast 6 months has flown by! I know, I say this every month when I post but seriously, half a year? Already? Our lives have completely changed with our new love, and for the better, I really can't imagine life without him now! Diego has brought so much joy and fulfillment to our lives!

His laugh is infectious, and so is his smile. I can't help but smile when he does!

Diego has learned many new things this month! He waves to us, almost every time we ask. He sits up fairly well on his own. He puts his knees up when he's on his tummy...we are in a world of trouble because soon he'll be mobile! Ahhh! He scoots around a bit, mostly in circles while on his tummy. He also makes an adorable kissy face and sound, and I will post a video of that soon so you can all see just how adorable it is! He plays really well by himself with toys on the floor or in his high chair while I make dinner. He is still enjoying cereal in the mornings, but we had to switch to oatmeal after a little tummy trouble with rice cereal. I won't go into details, but there was prune juice involved!!! We are looking forward to adding more variety to his diet shortly! He is also enjoying bathtime in the big tub now! He loves to splash around and play with his toys in the tub!
How can you not smile when you see this?

Diego loves to hang on the couch, and sleep there too!
We took a nice walk with our friends Ashley and baby Jordan this morning, she was nice enough to take a picture of Diego and I, which we have so few of!

Happy 1/2 Birthday my Sweet Boy!

Oh my gosh he is soooo adorable. You would think I would see him more being I live right across the street.

You are so lucky to have not only an easy going baby, but such a handsome little man! He's growing up so fast, and I absolutely adore his laid back personality. And I promise to take more pics of the two of you!!! You look so amazing after only 6 months...I will have to rely on you for help over the next 6 months!

I think you BOTH are super cute! Love your hair too! I'm ready for Ruby to not grow any bigger - some friends just had their first and oh, those newborn pics just do me in!!

Diego seems so happy! It is amazing how babies do change our lives in such a positive way. You are great at capturing all of the milestones that will soon be a memory.
