6 months old!!!

Barrett is 6 months old today!!!  Half-way to one year!!!  This is crazy!!  Time is flying by so fast and we are having so much fun with our sweet baby boy!  Today, Barrett had to go for his6 month well check and he also received 3 shots...poor baby, mommy, and Nonnie!  Nonnie went with us.  Her and Papa T also brought Barrett a couple 6 month birthday presents!  (pics below...)  Barrett's appointment went well.  He did so good.  Him AND Nonnie cried for a bit with the shots but recovered quickly.  :)  His doctor did say that we probably need to go visit the Cranial Technologies place to see if he needs a Doc Band.  I am really praying he doesn't but if he does, it is a small hurdle compared to what some little ones face.  (I will have to keep on reminding myself of this.)  The back left side of his head is a tad flatter because he has favored sleeping on that side.  It is not severe at all...some can be though.

Thank you God for our sweet, perfect, healthy, bundle of joy!!!  We are blessed beyond what we could have ever imagined!!
