shots, stats & a "faux hawk"

We just got home from Barrett's six-month shots a little while ago and now he's sound asleep in his crib. It's so hard to see my baby boy in pain with that 'scared to death' look on his face. But is there anything better than being a MOM, and able to comfort them with your touch and soft words? I couldn't wait for that moment when the nurse put the last band-aid on and I knew I could pick him up, put him on my shoulder, kiss his sweet head and tell him we were all done and it was going to be okay. We were in the office for over an hour this time, and he was a little trooper as always.
Here are his six month stats:
Weight-16 lbs, 10 oz
Head-17.5 inches

And here are some (okay, several) pictures from an impromptu photo shoot we had this morning, before he was traumatized from the shots! We gave him a "faux hawk" while Daddy was home for lunch, and he was in such a good mood, I couldn't resist capturing it on camera. What a little man...he's such a crack up!


  1. the 4th picture is so cute!!!
    Emily was ALWAYS trying to put Barrett's hair in a mohawk so she is very impressed with these pictures.

  2. Great pictures! Glad the check-up went well. I hate watching them get shots :(

  3. Oh my gosh!! Could he get any cuter?! Seriously...I am not just saying that because you are my friend...he is adorable!! Wish I lived closer to I could take his pictures!!

    That hair do and outfit are too cute for words...but that smile? He is one happy baby!!

  4. Such a little PIMP! You can't look at those pictures and hear him laugh, it is infectious! See you soon.

  5. what a handsome little man!!! I love the pictures! :) And I know what you mean about being able to comfort them... as much as I hate seeing him that way I love that I can make him feel better. Now he gets a 3 month break from any pokes!!
