Happy 6 months, Sweet Mr. Goopy Eyes

Yesterday was your 6 month birthday! And, just to keep it real, I took a picture of you on the actual day that you turned 6 months old. This is how you looked. . .

You were sleeping soundly, eyelids closed, when I picked you up and put you in the car. It was time to pick up your big brother from elementary school, and so I was in a bit of a hurry. I didn't even look at your face until I was strapping you in your car seat!! And, there you sat, eyes all matted together, smiling. . .

You are a gem. And, I'd like to keep you forever! What a precious little soul your cute body houses! Today we went to see your pediatrician for your 6 month well baby check up and shots! You weighed in at 19 pounds and 14 ounces and were 29 inches long! You weigh almost as much as some of your brothers did at a year! But, the pediatrician said that this was completely normal. You doubled your birth weight just like you are supposed to! You just started out big, little one!

You continue to be a sweet little soul, and we all adore you! Even Lijah cannot get enough of you! The two of you are so close in age that it will be so fun to watch your little friendship develop! You are rolling around, but not yet crawling or sitting up. I haven't attempted solid foods with you, but I will very soon! I am just enjoying you, sweet little friend. I enjoy your sweet smiles, toothless grins ~ but not for long I am afraid! I tell Erik all the time, "We have to stop here because we'll never have a baby this sweet again!" You are spoiling us, little man.

Plain and simple, I adore you.

I love you with all my heart.

Let's journey on, my sweet goopy eyed little one!

This precious picture made me laugh out loud! It is days like this that we forget about and they mark our lives more often than than the well-dressed portraits.

I cannot believe your baby is already six months old when it does seem like yesterday I saw you post pictures of your pregnant self holding the big brother ... and he was the baby then ;)

Hi! I live in a sweet country home overflowing with love, laughter, and little ones. I have been blessed to journey these days beside a man that I love, respect, and admire. He is my soul-mate and best friend. Together we are seeking to raise our seven children to be lovers of God, to be wise and discerning, and to be all that our sweet God created them to be. I am in the goldfish and cheerio stage of life, but I am keenly aware that these days are slipping right through my hands. This blog is my attempt to keep our memories safe for years to come.
