The Six Month Miracle!

Jamesy Boy, I have a confession to make…Newborn stage is not my favorite. I have really tried to enjoy it with each gift/baby boy I have been given.DSC_0409

And if it makes you feel any better. I have enjoyed your newborn stage more than the other brothers:)

DSC_0418You really were such an amazing baby, overall.


This time it was a little more difficult for me after you were born than after your other brothers were born.

There were times I forgot to eat and started getting dizzy.  I was tired and my eye sight was going a little wild.  I was trying to protect your from your brothers, who LOVED you so much.  And my body seemed to be telling me that I was not as young as I used to be, and was starting to rebel.

There were weddings to go to, reunions to see, people to meet during those six months.  Which added to your schedule being off a little bit, but let’s be honest there was no schedule:)  And it was worth it!

You LOVED me, but a little bit too much.  You would not really go to anyone else…


You spit up a lot, but I never needed to worry about your weight, thank goodness for that!


Just when I thought that this is just how life was going to be, and the suck it up and go on as a martyr.

Six months arrived, and then the magic happened,

You started to SMILE

You let your brothers by you. (Which you are still wondering about:))


You finally realized what all your brothers realize eventually, that you have the best dad of all time. And a lot more fun than mom…No offense taken.

You started eating solid foods.

You could sit up and play with toys a little bit more.


And the biggest reason of all, you let me have a decent nights rest.

We are starting to have a schedule, which makes all the difference in the world.

So those who have a newborn or soon will have an angel arriving.  Take heart, remember, six months is magical:)

And then you will forget these crazy moments…


And just remember this:

And this:
