6 MONTHS OLD!




My little boy keeps growing up!  Little could I have imagined how much this little man would change my life for the better in 1/2 a year.  Not that I should be surprised as his daddy had the same effect on me! :)  What a blessing motherhood has been & continues to be.  It's amazing how much his smiles & laughter brighten my day.  He is a very happy little guy!  He's currently rolling all over the place & scooting a bit to get to his toys.  I've tried to prop him up on his knees, but when I do he immediately lays his head down & laughs, his little legs are very ticklish, an unfortunate trait inherited from both his parents.  So, no signs of crawling any time soon.  Teeth haven't made their appearance yet either, though I sometimes try to blame a cranky mood on teething.  He loves making & discovering new sounds, the louder the better, which is cute until it breaks into a scream occasionally.  He is also very fascinated by fingers, especially his own.  Sometimes when he is eating he will stop & start staring at his hand, then he starts moving his fingers around & is totally focused on them.  It's a crack up!  He also can have a very serious face when he is working at getting toys & more importantly getting them in his mouth.  We sure love Troy, he's amazing, we feel so blessed to be his parents.  We're looking forward to a fun summer in the sun & his grandma & grandpa Trask returning from the Philippines next week!

Your little boy is adorable. They do grow up way too fast. It seems like the more kids I have, the faster they grow bigger.
