Six Months Already!

Happy 1/2 birthday AJ. ha ha. Can you believe he is six months old already??

He had his check up this morning. Everything looks good. He is tipping the scales at 18 lbs 6.4 oz. I thought he might have hit 20 lbs b/c he is so heavy. He is also 27 1/2 inches long.

We started feeding him rice cereal this week. I think he likes it. He's still figuring it out though. Here's an interesting thing I learned at the doctor's today.... She said not to give him fruit juice until he is 4 to 6 years old. Wow. I had never heard this before. She said juice is just empty calories, too much sugar. Interesting. Anyone else wait that long?
Anyway, he had a fairly good afternoon even after getting three more shots. Here's some pics.

Hey Jody,

He's getting so big! My girls weighed 18/19 lbs at 1 year! I've never heard of not giving juice until 4 -6 years. I didn't give alot but they had it at the age of 1. She must be a health nut :)
