Today you are six months old! I can't believe that so much time has already passed, but I also can't believe that there was ever a time that I didn't have you. I love you so much, and I am so proud of you already. You make even the worst days better and the long nights worth every minute. Your one toothed smile can light up a whole room and your big blue eyes look right into my heart. You already know so much and you learn something new every day. I just wish that I could hold you forever, but every time you inchworm away or sit by yourself (even if only for a few seconds) I am reminded that you are growing up. It is so bittersweet. I am excited for the child you are becoming but I miss the baby that you were. I can't believe that you can already say "Hi" and wave to people. I love when you're nursing and you look up at me and smile with a mouthful of milk. I love when we are sleeping in bed and you reach out and hold my hand. I love when you reach for me when someone else is holding you. I love that you always smell of lavender. You never stop amazing me. I love you!
P.S. Daddy loves you too!
