Make it Meaningful, Baby!!
Ah crap!!

6 months

Happy half birthday to my littlest sweetheart!

6 months is such a bittersweet step for me.  In one sense it's amazing that he's grown and developed so much in just 6 short months.  That's he's a sweet cuddly thing that gets excited about EVERYTHING, even boring wooden spoons.  He loves his momma, adores his big brothers and squeals with delight when Daddy comes home.  So why is 6 months bittersweet, then?  Well, in one way I'm releaved he's past the delicate stage where you have to watch every little cold and fever and shelter him from others who are sick, but at the same time, I can no longer call him a little baby!   He's not a teeny fragile baby anymore.  It's been a while since someone's peered into the stroller and commented on the teeny baby, now it's just baby.  He's a big baby, 6 months, eating solids, sitting up, reaching for everything...  all grown up.
