Six-Month-Old Roman James

“Promise me you’ll always remember: you are braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” –Christopher Robin to Pooh Bear

My baby boy is six-months-old. We are halfway to a year. It’s crazy & it’s beautiful. The past month has been extraordinary beyond measure. Everything is changing. My only complaint about his temperament was only ever that he didn’t sleep and now he is sleeping, only up once or twice a night to eat or be soothed. I feel as though I am the luckiest mama ever. There has been a major shift this month. Roman is coming into his own. He has gone from being the best baby to being my best friend. I literally cherish every, single moment with him. M. & I were just talking about how I wake up him in the middle of the night and hop right out of bed with ease. I explained how it is so easy for me because I love to be with him. I miss him when we are apart, even for a little while. Our nursing sessions and cuddle time in the middle of the night, when all the world is quiet, are some of the most precious moments of my life. I never tire of this boy. I cherish every moment with my entire heart. I know full-well how soon they will be passed.

Roman, you are smart & wild & curious. You have the spirit of the falcon & the baby wolf. Everything fascinates & delights you. I wish that you are always full of such wonder. (Don’t let this picture fool you. You are not sad. You are intently watching & waiting. Bella is on the other side of the yard and you are patiently waiting for her to come over & kiss you.)

You are my greatest accomplishment, my greatest hope, my greatest joy. Happy six months, my little love. ♥

    He is seriously the cutest! And I loove the 6-12 month age range of babies – my absolute favorite. They develop such adorable personalities! I love it!

    I love how the blue sweater highlights his extremely handsome blue eyes! You have yourself a lady killer!! But, seriously, he is adorable!

    I remember the 6 month mark! I thought it would never happen and was super shocked when it did happen. I guess mainly because I didn’t think it would happen so quickly! Now, my baby girl is 9 months and I try to hold her whenever I can! They grow too fast!

    Side note, normally I get your posts via email and today is the first time I have seen your new blog design! It looks great 🙂

    Have a good weekend!

      Thank you, Rebekah. We are in such awe over his blue eyes. Matthew & I both have brown/hazel eyes and we never imagined that our baby would be blue-eyed. But here he is! He honestly has the most gorgeous eyes that I’ve ever seen! <3

      Glad you like the new design!!
