M(om): Joash, can you believe you are 6 months old already?
J(oash): Sure I can, Mom. It feels like I have been around for a long time.
M: So, what is new with you these days?
M: I don't quite think you are ready to handle plates, glasses and silverware. I think you need to start smaller, like with a sippy cup or something. What are eating these days?
J: I have started eating rice cereal, which is really yummy and today I had oat cereal for the first time and that was really good too.
J: I love going to different places and seeing all of the different people and things around me. I also like playing with many of my toys, but my favorite right now is either the ExcerSaucer or the Red Ring Rattle I have. Oh, and I really like this green star.
J: I like to sit, but I get so excited with all of the other things around me, that I tend to tip over while I am reaching for stuff. So, I am glad that you put this pillow around me for support.
M: Anything else you would like to say?
J: Well, I am excited to see my grandma and my aunts this week. I am a little sad that the people that make flight schedules decided to change my grandma and Aunt Dawn's schedule so much that they now arrive 1/2 a day later, but at least they still get to see me. So, Aunt Joy, I will pick you up at the airport on Wednesday and Grandma and Aunt Dawn, I will see you on Thursday.
M: That's right. See you all then!
