Simon turned 6-months-old on the 29th.  His check-up was yesterday.  He's a healthy little boy!  He weighs 18 lbs, 9.2 ounces and is 27.75 inches long (that's the 75th and 90th percentiles, respectively).  Simon's half-birthday also marks the advent of "real" food.  He started with rice cereal a few days ago, and peas will soon follow.  Get excited, Simon!  There's a whole world of deliciousness out there!
Speaking of deliciousness, look what Kira is growing!  Below is the first carrot we harvested.  A little small perhaps, but very yummy.  Have you ever wriggled a carrot gently out of the soil?  It's magical to find that familiar orange shape attached to the fluffy green top you've been tending.  We're enchanted. Carrots may have to become a garden staple around here.

  1. Has Kira seen the episode of Curious George where he grows a carrot? (Ice Station Monkey/The Perfect Carrot) There are some good gardening tips in that one.
