Yesterday I turned 6 months old! My parents threw a surprise 6 month / half birthday party for me. I got a balloon, which was awesome! I also got to open some presents - clothes and a teddy bear. I really needed a teddy bear of my own, because I found my mom's old one, but I don't think I can keep it. The one I got is very soft and much more my size. Don't worry, you didn't miss anything, my parents took a video of the whole party. Since we last spoke, I've been up to a lot of stuff. I added some new foods to my appetite: peas, carrots, and cereal. Peas are, well, ok, but kind of weird. Carrots were delicious. The cereal is a little bland after all these fruits and vegetables, but I'll take it!
I also took my first trip to the beach! It was a long ride - more than 6 hours in the car, along with my dogs (yes, they're mine now). I went with my Mimi and G-Daddy who also brought their dog. As you can imagine, it was a madhouse with all these dogs and people. Everybody was apparently eating lots of seafood, whatever that is. It was pretty nice, though, long stroller rides on the beach, morning and night.
I'm working on standing. I've got a way to go on balance, but I'm getting there. It works best if I have something to reach for and somebody to make sure I don't fall. Check this out!
And just for fun, here's a shot of me relaxing with Mommy!
One last shot, from my half birthday party, in the Georgia Tech outfit I got from my cousins when I was born:
Alright, that's all for now. I've got to take a nap. See you all again soon!
