Oh this little man of mine, I couldn't be in more love with him. I know every single mother feels this way, but oh man I just can't help it!
I wake up each morning to him smiling at me, and it melts all my grief...you know the ones from the bedtime struggle. But more on that another time.
The last I showed you of him he looked like this
and oh do I miss him that little!

So as you can see he has grown quite a bit!
and to think we are just days away from the half birthday...I can't believe I've had him for half a year now. It seems impossible. I miss the little baby so much it hurts sometimes, but then he "talks" at me and laughs at me and reaches out grabs my face and kisses me and I'm totally ok with how big he's gotten.
