6 Months!

Today Elijah is six months old! What a milestone!

Thinking back...
A year ago, my waistline was starting to thicken.
A year ago, we were looking at baby furniture and dreaming about the future.
A year ago, we were talking about names for a boy or a girl!
A year ago, I was just getting over the first trimester nausea and exhaustion (praise the Lord!).
A year ago, we thought we'd be moving to Colorado soon (Haha!).
A year ago, we decorated for Christmas anticipating our baby's first Christmas next year.

Six months ago today, I pushed for what felt like FOREVER trying to bring this little (big!) boy into the world.
Six months ago today, we scared our family half to death because we told them we were going into surgery for a C-section and then didn't get a chance to call for two or three hours! (Still SO sorry about that, by the way!)
Six months ago today, we met a 9 lb 3 oz baby boy who has already totally changed our lives!
Six months ago today, James and I became parents. Responsible for the life of someone so tiny, so helpless, so miraculous!
Six months ago today, we received one of the biggest blessings we could have imagined!

Today, Elijah is a child of laughter and joy, a constant delight to us!
Today, Elijah loves to jump, be sung to, be read to, and chew on everything he can get into his mouth.
Today, Elijah is babbling, grasping, rolling over, sitting up, eating "solid" foods, sleeping well, and growing like a weed!

I wonder what the next six months will bring.
