6 Month Pictures

I've been a little MIA lately on the blog. I'm going to try and get better about blogging. Life has just kind of taken over. I wanted to post this before I forget exactly when it happened!

When we went to Brooks' 6 month check up, the doctor said when we came back at 9 months that Brooks could be pulling up and if he had a tooth we would talk about solid foods then. I left thinking there is no way he'll be pulling up by then. Not because I didn't think he could but because it was going by way too fast. Well little did I know that Brooks was going to be pulling up in about a week and a half after that appointment. Yes you heard me correctly...at about 6 1/2 months old he was pulling up. I couldn't believe my eyes. Since his first time to pull up he's gotten really good at it. Friday when I went to get him from his nap he was standing in his bed. Monday when Ben got home from getting groceries with Emma, Emma had gotten an icee and set it on the coffee table. As soon as she was away from it he spotted it and scooted/crawled over to the table and pulled himself up to try and get it. He was so proud of himself. He doesn't have crawling down yet but he's ready to move on to bigger things. I have some pictures of him standing, I'll post those tomorrow. He's definitely beating his sister in this department!

Back to the title of the post, we decided we'd attempt to take his 6 month pictures ourself. We weren't just overly excited about who did his first pictures or his 3 month pictures (although we got great pictures both times) and so we thought we'd give it a whirl. For Mother's Day we decided to frame some of these and give them to my mom and his. Here are just a few of the couple hundred we shot.

I think we'll do his 9 month pictures ourself as well. We did a frame of 3 pictures of them together for Mother's Day and then a 5 x 7 of each of them and they turned out awesome. I was also able to do an 8 x 10 of the first 2, 1 for my bedroom and 1 for the wall of his first year and we're very pleased!

Happy Tuesday to you all!

You did a great job! I'm sure Emma helped. The camera (and her baby brother) loves her!
