Six months ago exactly to the day my daughter, my little miracle was born. I can still remember the birth like it was just yesterday, and somehow it’s already been six months. Since becoming a mother I have realized how slow the moments feel like there going by, but in the long run it seems like the days and weeks are going by quicker then they ever have.
I’m so beyond proud of my daughter with these past six months, she’s accomplished so much and made her mother so proud. I’ve loved watching her try to turn over, again and again and then finally getting the hang of it while on the diaper changing table (we use our kitchen table as a diaper changing station) while trying to put her pajama’s on after her nightly bath. I’ve loved watching her go quite and shriek with glee when a musical toy is held up in front of her. I love watching her munch on a wooden baking spoon and become so happy with her “new toy” that shes enthralled in the spoon for hours.
This past week has shown me how much and how fast she has grown up. Finding not one but two teeth about to pop out of her gums, watching her be so close to crawling (she has the position and moving her knees down pat, she’s not sure what to do with her arms, and when she does think to move her arms sadly falls over due to her balance) I’m proud to have been able to watch as she feeds herself her Farley biscuit, or when she leans in for the spoon filled with her rice cereal.
I also am able to notice personality traits in my daughter, and see some things of myself in her, one thing i’m noticing that when she laughs she snorts, which I will be honest I also tend to do sometimes when I really get into laughing. We notice how inquisitive and curious my daughter is, she won’t sit still she must look and discover everything around her. My daughter also seems to be a daredevil, she loves to be thrown into the air, she loves us pretend “dropping” her (we keep our arms around her but quickly move our upper body forward until shes close to the ground) she squeals and gets the biggest widest smile on her face.
These six months have gone by quicker then I could ever have imagined. I’m amazed that in six months by beautiful baby will be a one year old. My miracle has helped me grow these past months just as much as she has grown these past few months. I’m proud of everything my daughter has been able to accomplish these past few months.
