The Conversation with Ava

This particular conversation went a little something like this:

(Set the scene- Harrison had just spit up while I was holding him. Ava comes to the rescue...)

Ava: Momma, I just cleaned up all that spit up off the floor that Harrison did.

Momma: Ava, hold still while I get the camera.

Ava: Why?

Momma: Just because....

Ava: Momma, what are you taking pictures of?

Momma: (laughing uncontrollably and thinking that a freak out is coming)

Momma: I'm taking pictures of your hair....

Ava: Why?????

Ava: What is that?

Momma: Harrison spit up on your head too...

Ava: Get it off! Get it off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mommy..... (insert lots of crying here...)

and here...................

and anger here....
Ava: Mommy, why you make me do that?
Mommy: (just more laughing....)

Too big for his britches

Harrison started pulling up onto furniture right around the day he turned 6 months old. I wanted to catch this milestone on film so I waited for him to pull up and grabbed the camera. When I called his name, he turned to look at me and then a second later he decided to come towards me. And then I think he realized "Uh, oh! I can't walk yet!" The next picture would have been his face hitting the ground because that is where he went; straight down onto the ground. Poor baby! He is trying to be too big for his britches and grow up too fast!

Harrison at 6 months

Here is a look at Harrison at 6 months:

  • You are a big boy! You weigh 20 pounds and 5 oz and are 28 and 3/4 inches long.

  • You wear 12 month clothes, but an 18 month also fits, and 24 month onesies do the trick too.

  • You LOVE broccoli and chicken baby food.

  • You are addicted to baby "puffs" and shove them into your mouth by the handful.

  • You are a Momma's boy!

  • You squeal a lot and like the sound of your own voice. You also like to growl.

  • You wear size 3 diapers, but will be going into a 4 as soon as we run out of 3's.

  • You love to cuddle.

  • You love the outdoors.

  • When you see Ava, your face lights up.

  • You have 2 teeth on bottom.

  • You are learning to use a sippy cup.

  • You usually don't sleep through the night.

  • You have outgrown your car seat!

  • You stick your tongue out a lot, especially when you are focused on something.

  • You crinkle your nose in one of the sweetest faces!
