See that smile in that picture up there? Well that is how this boy is all day long! He is the happiest, most smiley baby you could be around. You flash him a smile and he glows! He is such a little joy.
This week Henri turned six months old. His weight has slowed a bit, but he is still a nice, hefty, 22 pounds and is now exclusively in 18 month clothing. My wonderful friend Mai-lin was passing along her one year old's clothing to me, but Henri has officially out grown him. He's a big one!
This month Henri said his first word and it was...Mama! Oh yea!
He is sitting up in the boppy without support now, scooting along the floor, and has TWO teeth!!! He also is starting to feed himself small pieces of food we put on his highchair.
He LOVES his Mama too. I mean, most days, if I am in the same room as him, he will follow me with his eyes or whine if I leave the room. He loves being held and is so cuddly! We love our Henri Boy so much.
Here are some pictures from our six month photo shoot.
This month was also special because we held a small dedication at our home with close family and friends. If you don't know, a dedication is when you dedicate your child to the Lord. Kind of similar to a christening...but different. It is saying that we promise to raise this child according to the Bible and do our best to point him towards Christ in all that we do. My Uncle David dedicated Lucia when she was a baby and he also performed the celebration for Henri. It was beautiful. Henri is our miracle boy knit perfectly together by God. He gave us him when we needed him most. When we were staring into the face of sickness, God gave us new life. Henri's middle name means "servant of Yahweh" and we will do all in our power to make sure he lives up to that name.
Here are a few photos from the dedication...we didn't take as many as I thought...but we got a few good ones.
