Seasons of Love - 6 Months


Little Man,


You've come so far. I look at you and can't believe that you used to be that squishy little guy who we couldn't keep awake. Not even to eat. Now, you're eating big boy foods, crawling (in your awesome backward way), and trying really hard to say words.

It seems that your personality develops a little bit every day. You're very quick to giggle, which I totally appreciate. Sometimes you just look at us and crack up. I'm convinced you're going to be one of those guys who fully appreciates slapstick. Lord.

You're always quick to annoy, which I don't appreciate, but totally get. A morning person, you're not. You, like your daddy, have a no-fly zone for the first half hour of the day. After the "all clear" alarm sounds, you're sweet, happy, and charming. I can deal with that half hour.

You love the cats and think they exist solely for your amusement. All of the worries I had about the Diva and her biting habits were for naught. The other day, you grabbed a handful of her hair and she just glared. But no bite. Not that it's okay for you to grab the kitties, because it's not.


With your increased mobility, your daddy and I feel almost as unprepared as the day we brought you home. I'm still not sure how the hospital let two clueless goofballs take you home, but I'm very grateful they did.

These are the days Nathan that you turn from a wee baby into the personality that is developing. You are entering into a special age of innocence where the smallest thing will entertain you and in turn, your Mom and Dad.

This is such a short time that goes so fast; I hope your parents treasure every second they have with you. When you are older it will be hard for Mom and Dad to remember this precious time but they will want to. You are going to grow quickly and all too soon you will venture into the outside world....

You are an adorable baby and have the cutest smile! I have enjoyed following your journey and hope your life is filled with joy and happiness.

Happy 6th month milestone!

Happy 6 months, big guy! I've enjoyed watching you grow.

Happy six months, Nathan! You're getting so big and growing so much!

I know the two 'goofballs' who are your parents love and adore you beyond anything. You are the light of their lives. :)

Now Nathan, you are going to have to one day figure out how to go forward. The reason: it is a lot easier to chase the cats going forward! You are a very cute little boy who seems to bring his mommy and daddy a lot of joy. Don't grow old too quickly!

Eeep! *sniff* So sweet. I can't believe 6 months have flown by so quickly!!! Wow! (the pics are awesome, btw, esp. the one with him and Mystic)

Oh, Nathan, you are so beautiful and growing so fast. You're smile can brighten the darkest of days. You are such a lucky little guy to have parents who would go to the ends of the earth for you. Someday you are going to think they are dorky and uncool, but I also know that someday you'll realize what a blessing they are. Happy 6 Months!
