B just celebrated his 6 month birthday! With that excitement comes all sorts of new milestones he seems to be reaching for, whether I want him to or not!! He was blessed with his 2 bottom teeth on his 4 month birthday, and not to be outdone, his 2 top teeth keep playing peek-a-boo! He is also a baby on the go! He wants to crawl! Desperately! Anytime, anywhere, without regard for personal safety! 

It makes me sad that when I look at him I no longer see my chubby little baby, he's slowly turning into a little boy. An active, noisy, (occasionally dirty), little boy. Whenever he gets on all fours and starts to wiggle and rock, in my head I want to gently push his little bum down and encourage him to still be a baby. Ok, maybe not just in my head, I did try it a couple times when this "crawling" idea started to present itself to me. The joke was on me though! He still practiced, at night, while I was trying to sleep. Touche little man, touche.

It's crazy to me to think that this time last year he was still very much a mystery. We knew he was developing well but that was all we knew. To see him now, see his personality developing, his stubbornness with figuring out the world, his desire to learn and grow and eat-everything, makes me sad to see the last 6 months gone, but excited to see where the next 6 months will take him. I've said it before the only constant is change. He's only consistent at being inconsistent. I only hope that 6 years from now, when my life is completely different, I'll read this post and remember exactly how I'm feeling as I'm watching him right now; rolling all over the floor, squealing with excitement each time he makes it to his knees. I know the sleepless nights will start to blur, the concern about how, when, where to babyproof will fade, and I'll just remember bliss. No television on, windows slightly cracked with birds chirping, and B on his belly, scooting towards our poor, unassuming dog Harley, determined to eat the tags on his dog collar. Yup, that's my bliss. :)

  1. My baby girl just turned 9 months and I feel the same way! She's starting to look more like a little girl and less like a baby! Plus she just started walking using her little walker toy and I just can't believe it! She's growing way too fast for my liking! lol :)
