It's become a tradition in Sean's family to do a little "pumpkin photo shoot" for each baby's first Halloween. Last Saturday, our amazing photographer friend Alta took some 6 month pictures of Beckham (pics to come later), so we took our pumpkin with us and she got some cute pics of our little buddy! I'll post more later, but here's a preview...

Beckham turned 6 months old today! This morning Sean grabbed Beckham when he woke up and when I walked into the room, Sean was singing "Happy Half-Birthday to You" to him. It was really cute! I can't believe how quickly these last 6 months have gone by. We are so glad that Beckham is part of our family. He is such a happy little boy and we just love him more and more each day!

The last couple of weeks, Beckham has been staring at and salivating over anything Sean or I put in our mouths to eat. (Okay, so the slobber is probably from teething more than it is from his taste buds revving up, but whatever...). In any case, seeing as he's going to be 6 months in just a week and a half, we decided it was time to start feeding him some solids (can you really call it solids when it is so diluted with milk???), so tonight we gave him his first taste of rice cereal...
|Politely waiting for his first bite...|
|Beckham would get mad when I didn't get the spoon there fast enough...|

One of the things I love the most about Newcastle (and England in general...) are all of the beautiful parks. We're lucky to live within walking distance of several, and when the weather is nice, there's nothing better than a nice walk in the park. One of our favorite (and closest...) parks to go to is Jesmond Dene. Sean took the camera on one of our walks and got some good pics...
