Happy 0.5th Birthday Miles!

I can't believe Miles is already six months old! Wow. Time definitely flies. It's been a trip watching him grow up and learn before our very eyes. He's our little textbook baby - hitting those milestones according to the latest and greatest baby books out there. I know, all you seasoned mothers out there are going to tell me not to put all my stock into what the books say. But hey, as a first time mom it's the only blueprint I have to work with. And so far - textbook. Two little teeth started poking through last week. Literally one day there was nothing, and the next - ta dah! He also started sitting up by himself - well, for about 30 seconds at a time anyway. He's like a game of Jenga. You get him all balanced, sitting up like a big boy, then slowly as you give or take away a toy from his hand he starts to topple. So cute!!

We had a rough couple of weeks last month battling the sicky sickness going around. Miles got RSV which is a respiratory virus that has the potential to be particularly dangerous in young infants. Thankfully, we caught it early and I was able to keep him on lockdown for about 8-9 days. He also had an ear infection along with it, so that wasn't fun either. But today he had his 6 month check up, and he looks A-OK! He weighed in at 17 lbs, and is 27.5 inches.

In other news, Miles has officially outgrown his infant tub and has moved on to the wonderful, sophisticated, inflatable ducky tub!

He is growing up so fast. Thanks for the pictures and update. I check it every day and look at him.
I can't wait to see him again.

Love, Nino
