Sophie is 6 months today!

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

It’s been 184 days since my beautiful little baby was born! I blinked and 6 months just passed me by. I feel like it was just yesterday that I brought her home from the hospital, all tiny and puffy eyed.

The past 6 months have been so completely amazing, terrifying, exhausting and at times overwhelming. There are days when I feel like the worst mom in the world and days when I feel like there is nothing I cannot do.

Regan and I have evolved so much as a couple in the last 6 months. We have gotten to know each other all over again. We’ve succumbed to our baser needs and displayed moments of total shame, like raging fights over who’s had the least amount of sleep, who knows more about a particular baby ailment or my personal favorite, who woke the baby. But in between these small arguments I come to know him not just as Regan the love of my life, but also Regan the amazing father, Regan the expert baby hair washer, Regan the patient man who will put up with my unwashed hair and unshaven legs without once commenting on either.

Getting to know my baby has been, for lack of a better word, incredible – I wrote a bit about what being a mom feels like to me so I wont go on about it again – suffice as to say, she melts my heart with every giggle and gurgle and watching her discover this world she lives in has been so exciting. She has made me believe in miracles.

Life… whoa life… doo do do doo! It’s pretty grand right now.
