6 months

Dear baby boy,

I can't believe you are 6 months old today.
In just 6 more short months you will no longer be a baby.

Our time together seems to just fly by.
It's a shame though because we have so much fun.
you & i.

You are still my little rolling machine! You just roll and roll until some sort of obstacle gets in your way! The other day I went into the kitchen to make lunch and when I peeked around the corner to check on you there you were right under my feet! I guess you like me just a little :).

You are getting better at sitting up, but you're not really a fan. You would much rather be on the floor rolling around. One of my favorite things you do right now is get extremely excited about cups! It's the cutest thing! You literally attack them! Just recently you started making a clicking sound with your tongue and you also started doing this thing where you shake your head back and forth like you're rubbing your head when you're tired. Sometimes you get in little baby talking rants and you look so serious like you have all the right answers and everyone better stop what they're doing and listen up. Every day you discover different things you can do with your voice-screams, laughs, cries, sounds. It's so fun to watch you learn. 

You are doing great in your crib. Mommy and daddy are so proud. We have also begun the process of de-swaddling you at night. Which hasn't even fazed you. We put you in bed, sing your songs, give you goodnight kisses and leave. Next thing we know you are out. You're our little sleep champ.

On Father's Day we picked you up from the nursery at church and were told that you got the "Best Baby Award" (which wasn't news to us ;). We also took daddy out to lunch that same day and a lady tapped me on the shoulder and said that you were so cute and good. We couldn't agree more.

You are one special little guy and we are blessed by your life.

Love you forever,



  1. He sounds like one very special little guy. You must be so proud! Love that he is a little rolling machine... how fun!!

  2. Happy 6 months!! Yay for being a great sleeper and a good baby. We are proud to report that our little girl gets those awards too! :D

  3. Oh my goodness, this letter is so sweet!! In just 5 1/2 months I will have my own sweet baby to write letters to :) This made me SO excited for that!

  4. Six months? Really? Where does the time go? Enjoy every moment.Rx


  5. you're so lucky he loves sleep! It took forever for Wyatt to sleep alone in his crib - and actually sleep {instead of scream}. You've got a little champ on your hands! xo.

  6. so so precious , happy six months to your little peanut, he's beautiful! you are a wonderful writer;)

  7. awww happy 6 months!! The first year seems to go by soooo fast!!
