It's so hard to believe that six months has already come upon us. So much has changed and continues to change as time goes on. You are doing so many exciting things now. It still seems like mere hours ago that you entered my world, changed me forever. I don't remember life without you. It's as though you have always been with me, always been a part of me. I think in some ways, you always were a part of me. You were my dream, my wish, my prayer. And for six months now, you have been my answered prayer, my dream and wish come true! It's so hard to believe that you are already six months old. Time flies too quickly. There are days where I just wish I could stop time, soak in every moment, absorb it like a sponge. But time marches on and so does your growth. It's just amazing to watch you, to see all that you do that's new each day.
Tonight, you're sleeping soundly in your big girl crib for the first time. Of course, Mommy is nervous about it and in some ways, sad. It means you're growing up already, growing up to the point of not needing to be in the same room as me all night long. You've been sleeping through the night since October, but in some ways, it feels like I'm not as needed as I was before. Not the truth, but it's just a Mommy moment.
Well, my love, it seems I spoke too soon and you are now awake and nursing again. So I must go and start bedtime again with you.
