In Which She's Six Months

My daughter is six months old now.

Six months.

SIX. MONTHS.

I don't know who is responsible for this, but someone has to have cranked up the knob that controls how fast time advances. It simply cannot be possible that my little daughter (who I swear was just born yesterday) is six months old already.

The Boss and I are very lucky parents to have such a happy baby. She has her moments, sure, but overall she has been very nice to us. I can still count the occurrences on both hands the number of times she's gotten us up in the middle of the night. She hasn't been sick or gotten hurt, and is transitioning to baby food and a sippy cup like a pro. Her daycare loves her, and she's right on track developmentally.

Essentially, she's perfect. And I say that without any bias.

Want further proof that she's a happy baby? Look at these pictures, where she is so happy, she looks... well... for lack of a better word, stoned.







Of course, there is sometimes a side effect to being so happy all the time. Just like what I'm sure can happen when you've been smoking too much of the ganja, she gets a little scared/paranoid of the ghosts in our apartment (more on that next week):




It's been an amazing six months, watching her grow and develop her personality. I know there is a lot in store for me, and I simply cannot wait.

Have a good weekend, everyone.

Yep, the good times haven't even begun yet, trust me. And I know you'll enjoy every minute of it (as we will since you'll keep us updated. As a father of kids who are 8.5, 7, 5, and 3.5, I can tell you it's nothing but the best roller coaster ride around!

People tell you it goes by so fast, but you don't realize it until the time is zooming by with your own children. I still struggle to think that my oldest is 19, and my youngest is already 5.

Love the last photo. :)

Gorgeous!

Mine was just born yesterday and yet is somehow 2 years and 8 months...

Enjoy every moment, take lots of pictures / videos and write down the funny, important and silly stuff so you don't forget!

That's such a funny face--love it!

She is darling! Those first 6 months just fly by. 6 months from now you will look back at the pictures and says "remember when she wasn't mobile" and sigh in a nostalgic way.

Kristina: Glad we agree. =)

Jennifer: I laughed so hard when The Boss sent that one to me.

Kat: Oh, yes.

Mine are now 20 - 22 - 24.

My husband and I were already at the 30 year mark when we got married and there was a question as to whether we would be able to have children, so advised to just go for it. 3-1/2 years later we had 3 young ones in the house.

TIME! - all I remember was having that first child and the it was 18 years later and I seemed to be a lot older looking.

I still don't see how it could have flown by so quickly, but there's no way to slow it down - just enjoy the ride.

Wow, she's gotten so big! I love the one of her falling asleep.

Hope you're well! I've been so bad about keeping up with people lately.
