Six months

Andrew had his half-birthday yesterday! He is growing up so fast and doing new things every day. He is now able to sit on his own and really wants to crawl, although thankfully he can't yet! He is also very adept at grabbing things, so we have to make sure and put everything out of his reach. I'm not sure exactly how much he weighs now (his 6-month checkup is next week) but I got on the scale with him last week and he was 19 pounds. Wow. Here is a funny series of his 6-month pictures.
Amelia continues to be quite the artist and have a flair for the dramatic. This week she decided that she didn't want Fletcher in her room, so she made a "no Fletchers allowed" sign for her door. Here it is:

Amelia was a little disappointed when I told her that Fletcher can't read, so it wouldn't be very effective, but oh well. At least she tried!! She cracks us up all the time. You might have noticed that she made her Fletcher anatomically correct by including a "bottom." I explained to her after she drew it that we probably shouldn't draw "bottoms" anymore! Ha! Gotta love an almost-4-year-old's mind!

First, let me thank you for writing his age in months! Weeks are too hard for me to figure out without my calculator..... ;) Second, awww, I'm kind of sad that Amelia is kicking Fletcher out of her room. All of their photos seem as though they are best friends! What happened?

I notice he didn't put the paper in his mouth. Brylee LOVES paper, it's her food of choice right now :) Can you believe we've had our babies a half of a year already? CRAZY!

No Fletcher allowed?! How hilarious...and sad! And how frustrated she will be when Andrew starts finding his way into her room...
