Easter… Eli – 6 Months

Eli turned 6 months right around Easter, so we decided to wait until Easter to take his 6 month pictures. At his 6 month check up, he weighed 18 pounds, I think. I somehow forgot to write it down on his shot record. Bad momma. I do remember him being in the 75th percentile for his weight and the 50th for his height.
As most parents know, it pretty hard to stage a photo with a three or a 6 month old, and much harder to get both to cooperate at the same time. The first three are the best I could do, but I included the rest just for laughs. I’m so glad I’m not a photographer for a living… I don’t think I have the patience for it!
And here is the whole session…
Children are quite humorous little subjects, aren’t they?

So here’s the lowdown…
My computer is about to bite the dust. We have incredibly slow internet event though its ridiculously overpriced. My Mac is so old that it won’t sync with my iPhone. These are all excuses as to why I haven’t been up to my blogging duties. I take most of my pictures on my iPhone these days and can’t stand to wait half an hour while seven pictures upload to Picasa. Plus, Patrick gripes when I spend more than 15 minutes at a time on the computer at home. Either way, I’m uploading pictures now and have lots of fun things to share. Maybe I’ll get to share them before my boys graduate from high school.

First up on the list: pictures of my cute kids

Every picture tells a story, so I figured there was really no reason for me to narrate. Happy St. Patty’s Day!
