6 Months Today....

You have made it to half a year already. It's almost hard to believe that my precious tiny little infant is now an active and mobile baby. You have changed and grown so much in these short few months and I know that you will only continue to grow and change much more as the rest of the year progresses.  It's hard to imagine that only 6 months ago you were in my belly getting ready to make your entrance into this big world. For awhile there I didn't think you wanted to enter it. You wanted to stay softly bundled up inside mommy's belly forever, but you came none the less because you had too.  You have remained close to mommy since those early moments and I think you will always remain close to mommy. You do love your daddy too very much and he loves you more than he's ever loved anything (i think even more than mommy). I see it in his eyes every time he looks at you. You are the shining star in his life. His reason for living, as well as mine.  Well let's share what's been going on for the past month shall we.....

Make it Monday oh I mean Tuesday

Sorry for the delayed  post, but yesterday was a holiday. We spent it with family swimming in the pool, searching for a dress for my little one's upcoming Christening and eating dinner together. It was a nice day.  While doing all this I managed to finish the crochet gnome hat I have been meaning to make for him. It is from and it is super cute and super easy. Don't mind the breakfast pictures. It was the only way I could get him to sit still. The hat is supposed to be for size 12 months, but I used a smaller hook and it fits my boy and he is 6 months.

"Ok I'm all done now"
