6 months

Dear Carson,

The other day someone stopped me and asked how old you were.  When I answered saying, "He will be 6 months on Thursday," I couldn't believe it!  6 months.  You are a half a year old.  The last 6 months have brought my life new meaning and somehow it's as though I didn't live before them.

I am so excited to spend the summer with you.  These months are so fun.  You are laughing and playing and clapping and cooing and moving so much.  I can't wait to take you to the swimming pool, the park, go for long walks and runs...  We have so many new memories to make.

You are starting to look (and act) more and more like a little boy and less like a baby.  As much as I want time to slow down, I love seeing you change and develop.  I can already tell you are going to be strong like your daddy and smart like your mommy.  You are going to be independent, problem-solving, and patient.

You already have a great sense of humor and love making people smile and laugh.  When feeding you, you've started making noises and blowing food looking for a reaction.  When you get it, your face lights up.  I love your curiosity.

I love you baby boy.  More than you will ever know.

Exciting Moments:You started sitting up on your own 6/10/14.  Sometimes you lose your balance and fall over, but for the most part, you've got it down.
You discovered your feet and how to get them in your mouth.
You put your toes in the ocean for the first time.  It was pretty cold and you weren't a fan.
You stayed with Aunt Jane and Mamaw while Mommy had to work one Saturday night and Aunt Jane claims you know how to turn the pages in a book when being read to!
Momma's Milestones:
I am running an 11 minute mile with the jogging stroller.

I am back in all my pre-pregnancy clothing.


  1. you probably hear this a lot - but he looks just like you!! Especially in that 2nd picture (out of the last 4)
    This makes me want to cry thinking of my little boy growing. It's so amazing that theyre so healthy but it's so hard at the same time. Kudos on him sitting on his own!! My little guy isn't quite there yet but we are practicing!! He'll be 5mo in 6 short days..... I hope by 6mo he can kinda sit on his own as well for pictures haha

  2. Such a cutie! I can't believe he's 6 months already!!!

  3. He couldn't be more adorable! And way to go mommy fitting in your pre-preggers clothes!!! :) AWESOME!!!


Feel free to leave me some love. It makes my heart smile.
