I know. I can’t believe it either. 6 months, really? Where has the time gone? These are some of the things I love and want to remember about Simon at this age:
-His huge infectious smile.
-The way his face lights up when he hears or sees Violet, so priceless.
-How enthusiastically he jumps in his bouncy chair.
-Discovering his toes for the first time and subsequently trying to get them in his mouth at any opportunity.
-The way he grabs my face to pull it closer to him, then wraps his chubby arms around my neck in the wee hours of the morning when I go in to feed him. He acts like he hasn’t seen me for 10 years. I seriously look forward to seeing him at 1am just for that extra cuddle. So sweet.
-How desperate he is to be mobile. He gets so frustrated that he lacks the skills and strength to crawl, poor guy.
-The way he smiles and stares at his dad. He loves to get his attention any way he can. I have a feeling they’re going to be tight once he gets older.
-How good he smells. Except when he poops. We started solids. No more sweet smelling mushy yellow breast milk poop. Sniff, sniff.
-His curiosity and excitement for life. I love it.
We love, love, love our boy. Thanks for joining our family little guy. We couldn’t imagine our lives without you!
