Six months of Wonder

I can't believe our little man is 6 months old :) It has been such a magical journey so far that I thought I would share some of what I have learned and feel about being Wren's mom!

He smiled at me for the first time when he was about a month old and I melted immediately and then to get him to do it again i acted like a monkey hanging from a tree :)

I now know how to make a bottle with one hand, change a diaper in the back of the car, buckle and latch wren in a car seat, stroller, bouncy seat, swing etc.... flip open his stroller with one hand while holding the car seat:)

Singing songs in our quietest moments even if it is the police or bob marley. I just can't remember all of the nursery rhymes like I should  and he doesn't seem to mind :)

Sniffing a tush is second nature and poop talk is the main topic of the day:)

That I can survive with little sleep. I get a tad slap happy but I am ok :)

A look from wren can melt my heart instantly :)

It is possible to take wren yard saleing and junking!! I think he really loves it:)

He loves looking at every little thing and will climb all over me to see what it is that has him in a trance at that moment. I don't mind being a mommy jungle gym.

Before Wren arrived I was afraid  I wouldn't  know what he wanted when he would cry or fuss. My mommy intuition kicked in immediately and I now know what every little sound means. This is a wonderful feeling to have. I believe in it.

When we go out he is so social and enchanting. He just loves people and faces and is not afraid to grab them if you get to close :)

I wake up more than I need to to check the video monitor just to make sure he is sleeping okay.

When he wakes up from a nap I can't wait to run in and see him smile back at me as if he just had the best sleep ever.

He talks to me as if we are having our own little conversation. Sometimes he really gets going and I believe he is already telling me all about his day.

My diaper bag is my purse now :)

I love my husband even more and love watching him be a super loving dad :)

I love wren's smell it radiates throughout the house.

I know more about Yo Gabba Gabba than I ever thought I would. But love that show and my favorite theme song is to OLIVIA!! Love that little pig:)

As I write this I am realizing I could just go on and on but I will stop here and save some for the next 6 months :)

He's beautiful! I think he looks like you. I can agree with you on all that you wrote. Except for Yo Gabba Gabba. I don't get that show and it freaks me out a little bit. But Sadie loves Olivia, too. We sing that song and dance over and over.
