I have a six month old baby! How is that possible?! Where has the time gone?! How can I be so blessed to have this amazing little person be a part of my life for half of a year?! God is so good!
Ella is six months old today, and getting more beautiful, coordinated, fun, smart, and independent every day. She is such a joy, and now that she is a part of our lives, I can't imagine my life without her.
We made it all the way to our goal of exclusively breastfeeding for six months before introducing her to rice cereal this evening, which she seemed to love. She kept reaching for the cup where the rice cereal and breastmilk were mixed as if she understood that's where the food was. I think most of it made it's way into her belly, but I couldn't help myself but to laugh when she tried to blow bubbles into the mush.
If I'm this excited about her turning six months old, just think how ecstatic I will be when she is a year old! I have so to which to look forward. Like I said--God is so good!
Aside from the fun of feeding Ella rice cereal, today's blessing was the chance to write a letter of recommendation for a former colleague as she applies for a role similar to mine. She is currently a teacher, but has a daughter who is a week younger than Ella, and looking to do something that is more conducive to being a mom. It was such a blessing to reflect on the year that I spent with her on my staff.
