Half A Year

Six months isn't a long time period, but it can take forever to run it's course. When I look back over the last six months, I am absolutely in shock. My little boy is six months old today. Wow.

Over the last six months, I have grown as a person. Maybe I physically lost 40 pounds, but I also gained so much wisdom and love that I never anticipated. Being a mom is such an amazing experience. I've heard people say that you can never be completely prepared to be a parent. It is SO true, but I felt sure that I had waited long enough to be almost prepared. I don't feel like I'm behind at all, but I learn new things everyday. Yesterday, I learned that my son likes to flail like a fish in his little duck bathtub and laugh. The day before that, I learned that sweet potatoes are harder to scrape off a highchair than oatmeal is. Every single day is something new. I can't wait to learn today's lesson.

There are moments when I wish for peace that will never come, but I will never wish that I didn't have my son. He is a blessing and my everything. God has truly blessed my last six months. The best part is that I have a whole lifetime of blessings to come. I am one lucky girl.
