its been a crazy 6 months

sleep11Lil’ Miss Punkin is six months old today! She continues to amaze and charm us all with her ready smile, funny faces and sweet manner. Of course, I am naturally prejudiced as any mom is toward her own child. Right now she is laying on the bed next to me and I just want to squeeze her sweet chubby cheeks.

I am not exaggerating when I say that these have been the hardest six months of my life. I have cried in exhaustion and frustration and wondered what in the heck I had gotten myself into.  “They” really should give you some more warning about how hard it is going to be with a new baby. There could be a course or something, geez. But we’re in a great place now and things are good. I just can’t believe she is halfway to being one year old! Time flies as they say. 

And now she’s awake so my post comes to an end quicker than I thought. Anyway, Happy Birthday Sam! We love you!

  1. Happy half birthday, Sam!!!! And big kudos to mom and dad for doing such a great job despite the fact that not every day can be a red letter day.:)

  2. She is NOT 6 mos old already! OMG. Even on the internet they grow up so fast. Congrats on making it thru the 1st half-year; only 35 more half-years to go and you can set her free. lol
    Good luck and congrats.

  3. If we knew how hard it was the first 6 months I’m afraid the human race would go out of existence. And some of us even forget that and go for it again!

    And don’t let anyone fool you, it ain’t over at 18, you will never stop being a mom and worrying about your children.
