Comparison - 6 months

I hear all the time how much my boys look alike. I don't really think they do. What do you think based on them each at 6 months?

I will very likely be doing these often since all their stages/months are the same. And I expect you opinion every time. You've been warned.

It's been a month. I guess I have to accept it.

I turned 30. One month ago. There have already been several times I have claimed to still be 29. Not necessarily on purpose...maybe a little, but mostly just can't believe it. I had a sinus infection on my actual birthday, and the kids both got sick with that nasty, nasty stomach bug for about 5 days following. Good entry into this next decade. I think that is really why I haven't noticed the change in age. My life is still pretty much the same. Wonderful, but just life, ya know?

Anyway, it's not so bad. I'm ready for the thirties. Bring it.

I did get to celebrate though:

My hubs got asked to MC the national Sonic Corp. conference in Vegas a week before my birthday, so we made a 30th B-day trip out of it too.

I touched a sting ray at the Mandalay Bay Aquarium.
We ate good food and went to see Ka, an awesome Cirque show.
The week after my b-day, Lucas and my friends surprised me with a great dinner downtown. Great times.

Thank you to this guy for everything. Glad to be spending my birthdays with you.

Birthday Baker

I have tried before to let Henson make cookies with me, but he was terrified of the Kitchenaid. (how dare he!)
It had been awhile since I tried, so today being Grammie's birthday, I thought we would try again. He was very excited and a great helper. Especially when the dough was finished...

Always the best part of making cookies.
Making sure the finished cookies were up to par for Grammie.
Birthday cookies delivery...and eating Grammie's birthday cookies...

Happy birthday to a wonderful Grammie! We love you!

A milestone Saturday

Simon had quite a Saturday.

1st time in the highchair & first time eating baby food
(The actual eating of the food was on video. Green beans were a hit.)

This is his "I'm humoring you, but you all are crazy" face.

And, the milestone you dream about from the day you find out you are pregnant with that precious little person:

1st time riding a tortoise.

Next thing you know he will be hunting his first crocodile.
They just grow up so fast.
