Peas Please

Everett is 6 months old now!  How fast time has flown by – just the other day I thought about how much more sleep I get now and even that doesn’t feel like much – but somehow we’ve just made it work.

For Everett’s half birthday we didn’t really do that much since it was in the middle of the week and graduation week at Baylor on top of that.  So we put E in a new outfit for school and baked ourselves a gluten free chocolate cake with strawberry icing – and enjoyed it with our dear friends Mike & Kristin Dodson and Tracey Kelley.

We’ve started new foods with Everett now that he is 6 months.  Adam and I decided to start with vegtables instead of fruits based on some advice we recieved from several new moms we know. So yesterday we took an adventure with peas – bright green squishy peas! Everett is still not so sure about them but he was very brave and took several bites.  Next we will explore squash…. I’ll let you know how it goes.  I’ve enjoyed making his food so far I hope to be able to keep it up.

Today at UBC, Everett and 4 of his friends were dedicated.  This is a milestone for our church and shows how much we are growing in new and somewhat unexpected ways. Everett was pretty sleepy during the whole thing and actually about half way through just fell asleep.  At the end when the church clapped it startled him awake but not to worry in true Everett fashion by the time we returned to our seats he was back to sleep and slept through the rest of the service.

We have a tooth on the way – or so it seems – so the entire house is getting less sleep these days.  We go back to the doctor tomorrow for his 6 month well visit – we’ll find out exactly how big our big guy is…

    6 months already?! Wow. Eating solid foods is such a milestone. Peas are such fun. Gabriella did well with squash. Kudos on trying veggies before fruit. Gabriella LOVES veggies. I can’t wait to see a picture of Everett and his first tooth!

    I guess you will forgo feeding him beets, since I over loaded them on you and your sisters when all three of you were small rugrats!
