Doesn't this photo look festive and nice and holiday-ish? Well, in truth I think this was actually back in November. It's fitting for this time of year though, am I right? I think six months in my very favorite month of pregnancy. The belly is usually round enough at this point that it closer resembles an actual baby instead of a beer gut. However, it's not so round that it's up to your chest causing you to be out of breath by just walking down the hallway. Six months is just right. I have a bit of a strange look on my face in the above photo, but I couldn't resist posting it. This kid was too cute. We were trying to take photos of the baby bean, and Alder just kept sneaking in the photos with a mischievous smile on his face. I just love that kid.
