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.
