    <p>Excuse me while I take this <a title="" href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/netframework/" target="_blank">.NET</a>&nbsp;/&nbsp;MCMS / SharePoint / gearhead blog away and share a bit of my life.&nbsp; It&#8217;s been six months to the day since our son (our first) <a href="http://stevenconnell.net/archive/2005/01/26/164.aspx">Steven</a> was born.&nbsp; I was one of those guys who never went charging into it saying &#8220;I&#8217;m ready to have a baby!&#8221;&nbsp; I was more of the type &#8220;Now is a good time, don&#8217;t want to wait too long and be 60 when he&#8217;s graduating.&#8221;&nbsp; </p>
    <p>So the first two months were good&#8230; had some weight gain issues, but that was settled within a month and he was quickly packing on the pounds.&nbsp; Around month 2.5, he started to really follow us, look around the room for our voices, and start to find his arms/hands.&nbsp; Months 4&#8211;6 have been a&nbsp;blast!&nbsp; Everyone says it, and now I will&#8230; these are great times.&nbsp; It&#8217;s absolutely hilarious to see him start laughing&#8230; just a little party animal!&nbsp; A 45&#8211;50 minute commute each day makes times we get to spend with him Monday-Friday slim, but things are fine, and weekends are great.</p>
    <p>Today was his 6&#8211;month birthday as well as his 6&#8211;month checkup.&nbsp; As <a href="http://stevenconnell.net/archive/2005/07/26/3649.aspx">Meredith posted to his site tonight</a>, he&#8217;s now 23lbs 6oz and 30&#8221; long.&nbsp; The doctor said he&#8217;s the size of an average&nbsp;one year old!&nbsp; A few weeks ago we took a great <a href="http://www.andrewconnell.com/blog/Now-THAT-was-a-vacation">two-week vacation</a> where we got tons of great pictures &amp; videos which I've included in this post.</p>
    <p>These are good times.&nbsp; </p>
    <p>If you care to see more of his pictures over the last few months, check out his very own blog (<a href="http://www.stevenconnell.net/">www.stevenconnell.net</a>)&#8230; complete with it&#8217;s massive overload of comment &amp; trackback spam (I&#8217;m working on a solution, just don&#8217;t have the time to keep up with purging all the junk, but it will be done soon).</p></td>
