Half of a year... Where has the time gone?

I can't believe how fast my baby boy is growing up! He is 6 months old today! It feels like just yesterday I gave birth to him. In another 6 short months we will be celebrating his 1st birthday. SO CRAZY!
This week he has moved up to stage 2 foods... He started eating them this past Tuesday. He tried apple sweet potatoes and apple vanilla mixed grain. He really liked both of them. I think apples are one of his favorite things. He starts grunting for more every time I feed them to him!!! He has also started crawling backwards... It will only be a matter of time before he takes off!
In celebration of his 6 months since birth, he also got his 1st haircut today! He looked like such a big boy sitting on daddy's lap with the barber cape around him. He didn't fuss at all!!! He just looked at the man, looked at James, and looked at me! He didn't even freak out when he turned on the shaver or blew the cut hair off of his neck and face!!! He looks so much older now!

Tonight we also received some sad news about a dear friend and colleague that I teach with at Oak Ridge. Betsy Thomas passed away today after battling cancer for the 2nd time. Betsy was an an angel, a light, and a source of inspiration to everyone she ever came in contact with. Every day at school she would greet me by saying, "Hello Bebe" and then would go on to ask about PJ, and life in general. The world has lost a wonderful educator and friend. She will be deeply missed and I know she is looking down on us and protecting us all! Rest in Peace, Betsy... Because I knew and loved you, I have been changed for good...

That picture of him looking in the hand held mirror is priceless! He is such a little ham.
