Today my little baby turned 6 months old! Wow! Everyone says that this age goes by so quickly and you know what, they are right. It only feels like yesterday that I was holding George as a little 8 pound 6oz baby in my arms for the very first time and thinking ‘how the h&ll are we going to look after this kid’?
As overwhelmed as i was at first i absolutely love motherhood. I love seeing my baby grow into a happy little infant. I love seeing him exploring his world (i.e. putting everything in his mouth) and hearing him laugh hysterically at some lame attempt to make him laugh.
But i won’t lie. Being a new parent is hard. There is no instruction manual that comes with a baby and over the first couple of months i was feeling pretty overwhelmed by everything. But we are learning, slowly, and thankfully we have more laughs than frowns these days.
We are starting to see snippets of his personality now. He is still pretty serious, but he does have a cheeky side and he is very, very determined. He started to do this crazy crawl thing a few weeks ago and now we are just waiting for his first teeth to make an appearance.
But all the tears, spit up and poop have been worth it, it’s been such a joy having him in our lives and we are so happy to have started a little family of our own. Happy 6 months my beautiful boy.
