Sad boy

can't believe it

this kid is just getting huge. he's growing up so fast. i seriously cannot believe that in just 6 days he will be 6 months old. he's doing so much great stuff---he can sit totally unsupported for several minutes at a time. he's totally chowing down on rice cereal. he's figuring out the whole rolling over thing (you know, that skill that he learned back in like February or something, but decided to just stop doing...). He's even got a pair of sunglasses so that he can be the coolest kid on the block (forget the fact that we're the only family on the block).

as the weather is warming up, we're going out more and more. yesterday we went back to the park and tried the swing again. we took it a lot slower than last time and he did not cry or get freaked out at all. In fact, we got a few smiles out of him while he was swinging. the rest of the time at the park was spent sitting and people watching, which henry seems to like doing when we're out in public. we forgot to bring a camera, so we didn't get any happy baby swinging pictures. oh well.

Lots of pics to share this time...these are the ones that i have deemed to be the best, but there are of course many many more, so please feel free to checkout the whole album ...

Totally giving Molly the stink-eye for interrupting his meal.

OK, So I've been slacking. I've been on a special project at work, which have required me to change my hours at work, which makes it less convenient to write about my life with Henry. Apparently, it is now MUCH less convenient as it has nearly been a month and a half. Whoops.

Since my last update, Henry:
1. weighs 16 pounds 14 ounces
2. can sit in his high chair and mostly support himself
3. can sit on the floor or other fairly firm surface without immediately falling down
4. is not terribly impressed with rice cereal
5. has developed the cutest squeaky noise EVER
6. is not a fan of the swing at the park
7. has his very own castle (thanks to Iris and Simon)

Henry does apparently like the coolness of the glass of ice water, and will try to eat the glass. Come to think of it, he tries to get at anything that you have (including your beverage, snack, cell phone, book, magazine or anything else that you have that he decides should be his).

Sweetest boy!

Henry LOVES nako-time!!! Especially if it takes place a) on the floor of the bathroom, b) standing up in the bathroom so he can see himself in the mirror, or c) anywhere else

Henry also enjoys being stuck in his/my sling, zipped up into my jacket and going for walks. Especially if it is semi-close to nap/bed time. It calms him down quite nicely, and he'll often nuzzle in (like here) and take a nap...very cute.

So, sorry about my slacker-ness. I will try to do better next time.

OK, here's some updates since I typed this out yesterday (it's Tuesday the 8th now)...
Regarding rice cereal---Henry did the BEST job ever eating yesterday. He spit almost none of it out, didn't "tight-lip" when I came at him with the spoon, and didn't make horrible gagging noises. AND, he ate everything (well, everything that didn't spill down his chin).

Regarding the swing at the park. Listen and watch---especially pay attention to the last couple of seconds.
