My little sweet potatoe pie!

What a difference 6 months make. Today I took Lance in for his 6 month appointment. He is doing FANTASTIC. He came in today at 50% all round (weight, height, and head)- - - yep, I have quite the proportionate little babilicious! He weighed in at 16 lbs 11 oz, and 26 3/4 inches - I mean, come on - can't you just round up to 27! I wanted to post a picture of him at a few days old. He was born at 5 lbs 10 oz and 19 inches long - and 29 days early! The doc said he is doing wonderful - in fact, we came home and gave him his first canned food - mmmm, sweet potatoes (truthfully, I thought they smelled awful, but luckily he seemed to like them - wait - he loved them in fact, enough to eat the whole jar plus a bunch of milk right afterwards!) Great job Lance - you are doing SUPER!!!


In case you are wondering... yes that is a newborn onesie and socks along with a premie diaper - he was sooooo miny!

don't you love big chunky babies. They are the best!
We are doing great. We actually live up by the U hospital which has been so nice. Billy is in his third year! I'm pretty excited to be in 4th year and figuring out where in the world we will be living during residency. Who knows...maybe Arizona is in our future.
Your little family is absolutely beautiful. So good to hear from you Katie.

Wow--he's grown soooo much! What a good feeling that is for a mommy to hear! I understand completely! You're doing great!

I really can't believe how much he has grown and changed in just the last month or so. What a darling little boy that I hope to see (and hold!) in person someday. Those stats look fabulous and at this rate, he is only going to get bigger. Roman started at just 5lbs 2 oz and is now so big for his age so keep that in mind!
