Well, we took the opportunity a couple of weekends ago to enjoy some sunshine here in Minot and get Jarvis' 6 month pictures done!! He wasn't a very happy camper at the beginning (the mosquitoes here are HUGE and in large swarms all through out the day, and he did not enjoy the lemony smell of the bug spray!), but he calmed down and we got quite a few smiles out of him!
My good friend Stacy did them, and she has posted them here :http://www.stacyvandyckphotography.com/clients/mccown2/
If you want to order them, just view the picture you like, and click Add/View cart in the bottom right. She offers several packages and flip books, or you can just order individual pictures. If you have any trouble, let me know!
More big news on the Jarvis front is that he nows sits consistently on his own. He catches himself most of the time if leaning to one side or the other, or to the front. However he still leans back and can't catch himself, so he still needs someone nearby! He is attempting to move with everything he's got!! He rolls repeatedly to get around, and leans and reaches, and tries to scoot to toys. He desperately wants to crawl and has no problem pushing up on his hands and knees for several seconds. We have no doubt he will be on the move in the coming weeks!! His vocal abilities continue to expand with clicks, more tones and pitches, and attempting to make different sounds. He loves the kitty and puppy, his jumper, and any silly noise you can make!
Duckie is now 12 weeks, 3 months, and the morning sickness is finally subsiding. We have another appointment in a couple of week, and hope to get an ultrasound in 2 months or so!
We love you all and miss you!
J, C, J, & Duckie
