Our baby turned six months young today…well it is now past midnight so I guess his birthday was yesterday but you get the picture. He and I celebrated today with a nap and then we all celebrated after dinner with red velvet cupcakes. No I did not bake them, Trader Joe’s did. They were delicious by the way. Baby enjoyed his sweet potatoes so much that he had seconds. 6 months feels like a huge milestone to our family. So much has happened but I’m not sure where the time went. I guess it crept away in between naps or something because I feel like I was just in the hospital yesterday sleeping with him on my chest and wondering if he’d ever open his eyes. I love everything about having him and we are all so in love. He has the best smile and the most hilarious chuckle. He has a few wisps of hair that are holding on for dear life…and blue eyes. I never thought I’d ever have a blue-eyed baby. He loves the baby jogger and looks around happily, then dozes off while I run. He is fully embracing solid foods…avocados and sweet potatoes have both been given the thumbs up with whooping and shrieking in between bites. The house is constantly a mess but nobody cares. He has the chubbiest thighs I’ve ever seen. He is (and I hate to even write this as I fear that I’ll jinx myself) an awesome sleeper. He hates being on his stomach. He loves his older brother more than anyone, I think. I get to watch him grow and discover life. I’m so lucky.
Happy 6 months baby E, we’d be lost without you!
