dancing in the minefields

so i've been mia for a little while now. i've just been enjoying being a mommy and wife and watching my little man grow and change daily. it amazes me how things can change from one day to the next at this point. i can not believe that silas will be 7 months old next tuesday! the time has just flown by and he is growing and changing and it's so much fun to watch. he is the sweetest little guy and has so much personality. he is definitely mobile now (not completely crawling but can get where he wants to go no problem). he has two little teeth on the bottom and as of his 6 month appt is 15 lb 6 oz and 25 1/2 inches. (8% for weight and 5% for height). he's my little peanut and i love him more and more each day and am so thankfully to be his mommy!
tuesday i went with a friend and her 2 little ones to the zoo in jacksonville. silas seemed to enjoy looking at everything, though i know that he will really enjoy it a few months from now. here are a few pictures from that and a couple extras thrown in for fun. (i forgot my camera so they are iphone pics)

this is us on the train ride
 relaxing during lunch (in his new peg perego stroller i scored off of craigs list for $50)
 the elephant that came right up to where we were standing
 me and my little man looking at the ostriches
 this little guy is just 2 weeks old.

 at the christmas parade
 his new face he likes to make. 
i hope to update more often. i'm trying to get better at taking more pictures and having my camera with me all the time.

They do grow like weeds! Asher and I just got back from a bike ride around the block. He is officially riding on two wheels now and I was thinking to myself how amazing it is they learn stuff so fast..
