6 months old

Finn is being really fun at this age! He smiles a lot, and we're able to get him to laugh more. Well, he still doesn't really smile for pictures. He's more interested in just looking at the camera.

Here's the low down on his stats. He weighs 11 lbs 6 oz and is 23 3/4 inches tall. I'm a very visual person, and I'm sure many of you are too. So here's a visual representation of Finn on the charts (or not on the charts...).

As you can see he is following his own growth curve (imagine a line). I might add though, that his head is in the 10th percentile. Yep, he's a smart one.

Lately I've been really defensive about Finn's size. Not because I care how big he is because I don't (his doctor says that he'll probably catch up at around 1 year). It's because in the future if he ends up being a small guy I don't want him to feel self-conscious about it... There's a stigma out there that girls can be small, but guys can't. As Finn grows up and if people say anything rude to him about his size, I'll SMACK them!! Don't think I won't. Well now that I've vented, here are some pictures.

Wouldn't smile for me, but as soon as dad walked in from work...
All smiles! He was just sick of looking at my mug.

He's the cutest ever! I can't get enough of these pics! I'm going to snuggle him like crazy over Christmas.

And people are going to stay rude things no matter what...

...I hope I didn't hurt your feelings the first time I saw him...

No, I don't really care that much when people say he's little right now... It's just as he gets older is all.

Booyah for following your own growth line! I'm a believer in it. I was small all growing up now I'm on the small side of average. I can't complain. The Prime Minister of Russia is 5'6" and General Petraeus is 5'8". John Stewart is 5'7" and soccer star Wayne Rooney is 5'9". I'd say the size thing is more of a stigma in the US. You really do learn to be a survivor when you're smaller. You develop a lot of cleverness.

However, you might end up having to trace his head on butcher paper.

6 months already?!?! Wow, that is hard to believe. I love those pictures...and don't you love how they will ONLY do their best smiles for daddy? I guess after being with mom all day dad seems cool and exciting. Oh, and looking at Dennen's height, I wouldn't imagine that Finn will be too small. He'll be perfect!
