Boo at 6 mos

This is a short movie I created about Boo while playing around with movie makers. Some of the pictures I've already posted on this blog, but they're probably worth viewing again...

By the way, our "little" Boo had his 6 mos. check up yesterday. He's 20 pounds 4 oz (90th percentile) and 28 1/4 inches long (95th percentile). These discoveries clear up a couple of mysteries: 1. why he is quickly growing out of his clothes 2. why Sammie and I both have sore backs! He's as good-natured and adorable as ever. He was pretty sad when we came home from the doctor's (those dreaded 6 mos shots...) but still managed to smile and goo at me when I put him down. I'm soooooooooooooo madly in love with the little guy! (And the big guy, Sammie, too.)

Laughing, Drooling, and a New Throne!

I know my camera breaking is not a good excuse for failing to post pictures of Boo, especially when Sammie's a "retired" photographer and we have tons of photography gear around the house. But I finally got a new "point and shoot" and so taking pictures of Boo is a lot more convenient. Without further ado...
Extreme Close Up! (admit it, this picture totally makes you want to cuddle with him, doesn't it?!?)
Sammie had Boo cracking up the other night.

The back of Boo's head is a little flat so we're trying to keep him off his back. I bought him this new chair and he loves it! It looks like a throne and he rules over... well... the carpet. It's the only thing shorter than he is.
The new camera has a "kids and pets" setting for active subjects. I tried it out cuz Boo waves his arms and legs so much and so fast. Apparently, it's also good for photographing drool.
And finally... now that Boo can grab things and hold onto them, he loves stuffed animals! This is his favorite... Zack the Duck.
