you are 6 months old today little man and you are our dream come true. i sometimes can not believe that i am so lucky that you picked me for your momma. you are so special and sweet and you melt my heart each and every time i look at you. you awaken in the morning with smiles and coos. you pat my face and stroke my hair and curl your little body into mine. you can not wait to see what the day has in store and what exciting things you will see and learn. you giggle endlessly at the most ridiculous things. i spend hours discovering new ways to bring on belly laughs that morph into fits of hiccups and eventually end in shrieks when it has all become too much for you. you still love nestling in the moby wrap where you can both hear my heart beating and be part of all the action. you are the nosiest boy, always turning to hear who is talking, who just walked in the room, where we are going, and what we are doing. your gentleness and patience amaze me. you are content to just lay on a blanket and watch me move about the room, smiling each time i look over at you. you are the most wonderful thing that has ever happened to us and we can not wait to show you all the good things in the world. you are just magical and i love you more than i ever thought it was possible to love someone. thank you for being the greatest gift to me.
