My Valentines (pics) and O's Doctor Update

We don't really ever do anything huge for Valentine's Day, but it's still lonely without him, you know? So, it was really sweet when I got some two-lips from 1-800 Flowers at school today--a vase full of kisses. My students didn't get it. I laughed. And it really made my day.

You know what else made my day? Receiving two valentines first thing this morning with prints of my two littlest Valentines. Our babysitter is an amateur photog, and she surprised all the mamas with sweet pictures of their babies. And it's just in time, too, because as I was making O's six month post, I realized I haven't taken pictures recently. Before I share those with you (she gave me the digital files also), I want to recap O's doctor's visit today.

At six months:
Weight: 16 pounds, 14 ounces
Length: 26 inches
Head: 17 3/4 inches

To compare, here were Elsie's six month stats:
Weight: 16 pounds, 14 ounces
Length: 26.5 inches
Head: 18 inches

Dr. ST said she wasn't worried about O not rolling over, that he may just skip it altogether since he's working on being a pretty good sitter. We discussed introducing solids and getting him to sleep through the night while Daddy is away. So, we'll see.

Now, without futher adieu, my two smallest Valentines:

I'm in love all over again and again and again (see, times 3, one for each of my Valentines).
