Rilian is 6 Months Old!

Rilian is now 6 months old! It is hard to believe that the past 6 months have just flown by. I am sure the next 6 months will go just as fast, if not faster! Rilian now weighs 19 pounds. He is one big boy! He is wearing 12 months clothing. It is hard for me to believe that my baby is that big. None of my other children were that big. The boys grew with the clothing. Piper grew behind the clothing. Rilian is growing ahead of the clothing. He just learned how to roll from his back to his tummy. He has been working on it for a little while now. He just couldn't get past his shoulder. Every part of his body was rolled over, except the shoulder. He looked quite humorous. He doesn't have any teeth yet. As a nursing mother, I am not too disappointed. I keep thinking any day now he will have them. He is drooling alot and chewing on whatever is within reach.

Here Rilian is on his dragon blanket, again. I have a feeling the more mobile he becomes, the harder it will be to get his picure on the dragon blanket. I had a hard time this time, and on his six month birthdate, he hadn't quite mastered the rolling from back to tummy. We shall see in the coming months.
A close've gotta love those bright blue eyes! He has recently discovered his tongue and likes to play with it. His tongue looks a little funny in this picture because he was playing with it.
Another close up to show off those beautiful blue eyes! I am sure he will have to fight off the ladies with them. Or should I say, Reagan will have to fight the rest of the ladies off. Lauren and I have decided he and Reagan are going to marry each other.
On his tummy...He is not looking at the camera, but I had to put this picture in, because his smile is so cute!
Another tummy shot...this time he is looking at the camera and showing off his beautiful smile!
Rilian was trying to grab his foot. But I just couldn't get a picture of him doing it in this photo shoot.
No pictures of Seven and Rilian this time. I think Seven was napping again. But here is a picture of Piper and Finn with Rilian. Piper wanted to hold Rilian and I realized I hadn't taken a picture of her holding him recently. This picture kind of shows how gigantic Rilian is. I must apologize for Finn's mohawk not being fixed, again. Jeremy was on a mission trip and he is the one who can fix Finn's mohawk really good. I have stopped trying. I just can't get it to fix the way it is supposed to, so when Jeremy is not around, this is how it looks.
Rilian has recently discovered his feet with his hands. He has always known that they were there. Since he was a newborn, if he ever felt anything by his feet, he would touch it or kick it with his feet. He has a mat that he lays on and has toys dangling down that he can play with and pull off. On one end, there is a ball to kick. A few months ago, he grabbed the ball with his feet and pulled it down. I was really impressed! I really think he will play soccer when he gets older as much as he grabs things and plays with things with his feet.


  1. Ahh, I missed him rolling over while I was gone. So sad! But I haven't missed much with Reagan. She STILL isn't walking yet!
