Moments to Remember

Today, on February 22nd, it was an amazing 72 degrees outside. Absolutely beautiful weather. Little Pirate and I decided to play outside for a little bit.

It was probably the first time he's been outside for an extend period of time. It was so fun to watch him check everything out. Watch our dog run around, follow all the birds with his eyes, pat the grass, attempt to eat the grass, and enjoy all the new things there was to see. He had some sweet potatoes to eat and took about 45 minutes to finish the one serving. This is something he'd typically finish in 10 minutes or less. He was definitely having a fun time.

I loved watching my boy explore new things. I loved talking to him about everything we were seeing in God's creation. I loved being a Mommy and son just getting some fresh air together.

6 Months

On February 8th my sweet baby boy turned 6 months old. I haven't been a very good "Mommy Blogger", but a milestone like being 6 months old is enough to make me return. We'll see how long it last. ;)

I can't even begin to explain what an overwhelmingly wonderful feeing it is to have been a mommy to Little Pirate for half a year now. I spent three years crying on almost a weekly basis over my infertility and empty arms. Now I have spent six months crying (happy tears) on almost a weekly basis over my full arms.

Not to say that Mommyhood is all sunshine and roses. I am currently typing this with one hand while holding a finally asleep Little Pirate who has been very fussy all day. Dang teething. But I'm holding my boy. My arms are full and it's such an amazing feeling.

Little Pirate is a wonderful baby. We really lucked out. He's truly only fussy when he's tired, hungry, or teething. Otherwise he's a happy little guy who loves smiling and laughing at anyone and everything. My life is so richly blessed because of him.

Loves playing in the bath.
