Blake made it painfully obvious yesterday that I actually look very different when I have make up on and do my hair. Because my hair ends up in a ponytail by noon, I usually just blow dry it and put it up. The weather has been nice lately and it hasn't been very humid, so I decided to straighten my hair and wear it down for the day. That is until I walked in and Blake looked at me as if I was a total stranger. I can usually get a smile out of him when I walk into a room, but not yesterday. He just stared at me with a look that said, "Umm who are you? You sound like my mom, but you certainly don't look like my mom. She usually has dark circles under her eyes and her hair is in a ponytail." And I kid you not, it wasn't until after we got back from his doctor appointment when I put my hair in a ponytail that he actually gave me a smile of recognition. I guess it's good to know that he still loves me even when I'm not lookin' so hot (or that he may even prefer it to my more put together look.)

Blake had his 6 month check up and now weighs about 17 pounds and is 27'' long! As far as his cuteness goes, he's in the 100th percentile. He also had to get some immunizations and didn't cry at all! Such a brave little boy!
P.S. Did you know "stats" is a palindrome?

Good to know--I'll have to remember to switch things up so my children recognize me. I almost *always* wear my hair up and I don't even have a kid. The first graders always draw me with a ponytail.

I'm glad he's doing so well!
