Time has escaped me. I’ve been thinking about this post every day since Jan. 21st. because on Jan. 21st we celebrated this little dude’s first half year of life:
You are the most amazing baby, ever. You continue to amaze me, every single day. This month you are easily rolling all over the place, sitting up with little effort and doing killer down dogs, cat cows, and Pilates v-ups (Auntie Nicole would be so proud!). I have never been more proud to be a mom. It doesn’t hurt that after a long day I walk into a room and you smile this HUGE smile and practially jump in place when I go to grab you. The feeling is mutual, I practically jump out of my skin when I see you after work.
[look mom! no hands!!]
You are so independent too, you will nicely play all by yourself but you also have your needy moments which I love because I want to indulge you and still hold you close (you still love cuddle time, it is WITHOUT A DOUBT the best part of my day, everyday). You make us smile so much, your smile is the most contagious thing on the planet, grandma and I comment on how our cheeks hurt at after smiling at you so much! You still do this awesome thing where you gently reach out to touch peoples faces, it is the SWEETEST thing ever. I hope to never forget how awesome it feels, you are my little gentle giant.
You love hanging out with family too, and everyone is simply smitten by you – I mean, how could they not be?
You are playing in your pack and play these days, it is so cute how you sorta scoot around it playing with all the different toys we shove in there. What else you are loving? Splashing at bathtime! It is so cute!! You just slam your hands and feet in the water. You talk a lot when you are tired, grandma says you start singing to yourself, but your eyes always give you away they turn a bright shade of pink all around and you start to rub your eyes. You communicate so well, it really amazes me. You simply AMAZE me. Everyday.
We are still nursing! 6 months is a huge milestone for a nursing mom, and I’m so proud to still share this with you.
You light the room up my little love. I’m excited about everything when it comes to you. You have also embraced our move! I’m so excited we get to provide a stable home for you and I everyday I look forward to making memories here with you. My life has never felt more complete, daddy and I are so proud of you.
HAPPY HALF BIRTHDAY!!! xoxo
