6 Month Archive

Today its snowing! Its the most amazing thing I've ever seen. This is the first time I've seen it. I can't wait to sled on the big hill in my backyard. I bet we would have done it today but my daddy has the flu now. And for those of you keeping track, 5 mice down.

Dear Henry,

Today you are 6 months old. Again, I can't believe how fast the months go. Today is the first day of winter, and its very timely that today is the first day its snowed at our house! You look out the window and seem excited about it, but maybe it just me reading into things.

Now that you're 6 months, thing are going to be changing. You are going to be taking on some new responsibilities and are going to be gaining a little more Independence. Today is the last day I'll be nursing you. I don't know if you're sad, but I am a little. Although, I just can't bear to haul that breast pump to work one more day! And to be honest honey, you're just eating too much for me to keep up with these days. This weekend we're going to do our great experiment in rice cereal and the sippy cup. I hope you like it; I'm sure you will. You're sitting up better and better all the time, but we're still waiting for the roll over. I really think you can do it, but you're choosing not to. You're SO strong. And that blond hair is really starting to come in baby. We're going to be rockin' that faux hawk again in no time! I want you to know how much Daddy and I love you. Do you know that every night before we go to bed, we stop in your room together to check on you? Every night we do, and every night we do it together. We even wait for each other if one makes it up the stairs sooner. I make sure your blanket is on, and Daddy turns on your humidifier. He's better with electronics. Then we talk about how cool you are and how much fun we're having. Every night.

I love you Henum, Mommy

Happy Birthday my dear sweet Henry. I hope someday you will realize how much you are loved. By the way, I really like your new frog outfit. Soooo cute. Did you get it for Christmas? Do you like your new chair? It fits you perfect. I gotta go now and wrap more presents for you....
