How Is That Possible?!

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.


  1. Can't believe it's been 6 months!

    I just bought a baby food book. I think it will be so neat to make my food for my baby.

    Guess what, I found a DIME yesterday!! Woohoo!!

  2. I didn't realize our babies are exactly 1 month apart. That makes it easy to remember :) Believe me, the blessings just keep coming as they get older! While I love this age, I am so excited thinking of baby J as a toddler and beyond! All the while, trying to take this season in because they are just too cute and cuddly right now!

    Anyway, I love reading your blog :)

  3. Oh Laura! I'm so happy for you. 6 months was my goal too. The most recent post I wrote I was thinking of u. I can never thank u enough for your kindred and fervent prayers. I really believe during the most difficult times God heard your requests and for that I am thankful. Madison may go home next week. We'll keep you posted. Just wanted to say thank you!


I love to hear what you think!
