6 Months Old

Dear Isabella,
Happy 6th Month Birthday. Six months ago tonight visiting hours were over, and Daddy and I were alone with you for the first time. Our sweet tiny baby girl. We touched your little face, hands, and feet. How things have changed. Now it is you who reach out and touch our faces and our hands. And you love to hold onto your own little feet.

This month you went on your first family vacation. We went to South Seas Plantation on Captiva Island in Florida. We had a great time, and you loved putting your feet in the sand. You weren't too happy about the pool though! We also celebrated your first Valentine's Day, "Our Little Love."
You have become such a little Momma's Girl. If you are awake, you want me to hold you. You have been crying at nap time and bedtime until I pick you up. You still smile at everyone, but if I am there you want me! I absolutely love it, but I get nothing done. I have been putting you in the sling. You are as happy as can be, all cuddled up next to me holding your Giraffe. I am cherishing how much you need me and want me all the time. I can't imagine a time when it will be different.

The past 6 months have been the best of my life. I can't believe that in six more months we will be celebrating your first birthday. I hope the time goes slowly, but if the past six months are any indication, I know it won't. I promise to savor every moment.

Love you Busy Bee,

What a cutie!! I am in awe of anyone who manages to handle 2 or more kids. I've only been a mom of 2 for 3 wks & I'm still overwhelmed daily!
