Happy 6 months my little lovey. In honor of you 1/2 birthday you grew a tiny tooth! A little pearly glimmer peeping out of your gums. A declaration of your exit from infancy and emergence in to baby hood. It seems that everyday you are changing and growing.
You are a ball of sweetness, fire, energy and charm. These days you are completely mobile, although not yet officially crawling. This morning you made your way to the DVD player and reached out your little finger and turned it on. Then with equal precision you turned it off. You are becoming so dexterous and clearly rebellious as you know your Mama wants to keep you away from technology as much as possible.
You are a revelation in joy daily. I am so blessed that you are my own. In all my dreams of and longings for motherhood I never knew that it would be this….much. So much love, joy, exhaustion, tenderness, patience and discovery. The world is blooming for you and in all of your exuberance you are taking it in. And everyday you are stretching and shaping my ideas about love.
