Six months today

Six months

Would someone please explain to me how this happened? Last time I checked, I was on my phone in the maternity ward waiting for you join us:)

Of course, when I woke up this morning I knew I wasn’t pregnant and tiptoed into your room to find your daddy in there. You are six months old today. I just can’t get enough of your cuddled and drolly kisses. No teeth yet, your friends have started suffering with the pain, it has yet to come for you:( You have a great hand-eye coordination and are trying desperately to crawl more bum shuffle. You are a happy, relaxed baby and I feel so blessed to have you in our life.

Of course, this also marks six months of being parents. I don’t think I could have a better partner in crime other than your Daddy. He has taken to fatherhood so naturally and has been an amazing calming influence on me when I realize I can’t do everything in my lists. How did I get so lucky to love and be loved by such a lovely man? You are truly a lucky girl:)

As for me well, of course I struggle most times with control issues. Sometimes I feel as if it’s an impossible to accomplish everything I need to do in my lists. I often have to remind myself of what is most important you and your Daddy then everything falls into place after that.

Happy 6 months birthday my love
