6 months old!

Dear Carter,

Happy Birthday my sweet boy. I can't believe you are 6 months old today. I remember thinking back when you were around 2 months old that the 6 month mark would be so far away. It really has crept up on us and I am daily amazed at how fast you've grown into a perfect little boy.

You get cuter and cuter everyday. You are also more and more fun as you learn new things. You stare at your hand like you are on a far off trip. You have recently discovered your feet and often gnaw on your toes as to let us know that you are hungry. You do this fun little move* when I hide behind a toy or blanket. You inquisitivly whisk your head around the obstacle to peek at mommy hiding from you. This really is so cute it makes me cry with laughter. You have accepted the idea of playing on your tummy for extended periods of time and now are scooching backwards. You are never in the same place as where we put you. You are not far from crawling (Yea!…I guess!?) You love for mommy to pick you up from your crib in the mornings, you love to watch "Maisy" as you sit in your chair with your favorite blanket "snug-as-a-bug-in-a-rug", but what you love most right now is falling asleep on daddy's chest while mommy makes dinner.

I am so blessed to watch you grow up before my very eyes. I painfully regret when each day ends for I know that tomarrow you will be another day older. I truly cherish each moment I get to hold you, each smile I receive, each hug I feel, and the precious times we have together as a family. I love you for how happy you make me and the fulfillment I get from being your mommy.
