6 month thoughts {they grow up so fast}



Owen turned 6 months on Sunday.

SIX MONTHS. 

That’s half a year, people.  Half a year is a LONG time. It’s amazing how quickly this past half a year flew by. 



“The days are long but the years are short”. I want time to slow down. I want to be able to soak in all of these moments with Owen – firsts only happen once and I don’t want to miss a thing. 

These past six months have been a combination of joy, a huge amount of love, tears, laughs, hard work, and a sense of accomplishment, pride and love I never knew existed. I think most of the time I have been trying to figure out our little bean, just in time for him to change and move on to a new phase. I need to stop trying to figure everything out, wishing away the current phase, and just be in the moment.

Owen is so much fun – it’s amazing to see him learn – he’s into looking at his hands and you can see the wheels turning in his little head that HE controls THESE things. So cool. And then he invariably grabs something with the utmost precision (usually my hair) and rams it in his mouth. Success. :)




He has changed so much in the past six months, but still looks like the little guy we brought home that sunny day in September. His hair is lighter (and longer, we’ve had to give him 4 trims already!), he’s bigger, and he has a whole array of expressions, sounds and movements. I love seeing his smiley personality shine through. 

I can’t wait to see all the new changes the next six months bring, and at the same time I want to pause everything to really soak it in.

It's amazing isn't it? That you created this little person and he's growing into someone that's part of you but so completely separate? It's a very cool time of our lives that's for sure!

That's impossible! Six months already. Seriously?!? Time flies! Such cute photos. Hopefully you can enjoy some deliciously slow moments this summer (let's not wish for the winter to slow down, lol).

Hehe...I actually just emailed you and in my note, I asked how old your little one was...no need to answer. I know now :)

That is so incredibly exciting. What a cutie pie. Love the name. My nephew's name is Owen...so I'm completely biased. Hope you're doing well, Heather.

Six months already? How did that happen?? He looks like such a happy baby. Babies are such pure joy at that age. Enjoy!

So, So cute!!! Love that you have had to give him 4 trims already. Holy, hair!

This whole parenthood thing just keeps getting better each month, eh? I love all of the new discoveries and joy on their faces.

Have fun!
