Half A Year

Six months ago...

Today....

I can't believe how much my life has changed in the past 6 months. I have learned so much about myself and about life...

I learned that it doesn't matter if I have spit-up all over my robe and my hair is a mess - my daughter will smile at me anyway.

I truly don't mind getting up during the night to feed and snuggle my daughter - I know these days are fleeting and enjoy every second I get with her, even if it is because of a growth spurt rearing its ugly head at 3 am.

What my mom always told me is true - shots are harder on the parent than they are on the child.

I can experience contradictory feelings at the exact same time, such as "I miss you and want to play with you" and "please don't wake up from your nap yet".

Children have an internal clock that immediately awakens them from a dead sleep when the microwave or oven has finished warming a meal.

Dogs are not only man's best friend - they are a baby's favorite entertainer.

Time truly does fly when you're having fun. I already miss the tiny baby I brought home from the hospital, but I am so excited to see the little person she is growing up to be. She is smart, silly and oh so sweet. I love my little girl. :)

I ran across your blog from another blogger's page and wanted to tell you that your daughter is so adorable! My daughter turned 6 months old on January 3rd. She had her 6 month shots today and they didn't go well. Before, we'd give her a small dose of Tylenol prior to the shot so that it took the edge off and her muscles didn't get sore. This time, my husband opted to not do Tylenol to see how she did and, wow, it was bad. So, I empathize! I hope your sweet baby is feeling better now!
