Six Months Old!

I meant to post about this yesterday, but as usual, life intervened and I didn't have time.

Yesterday, Alex turned 6 months old.

My first reaction was:
"It's been six months already?"

My immediate second reaction was:
"It's only been six months?"

If I had more time and brain cells, I would now launch into a dissertation about the ability of infants to warp the time/space continuum into shapes that the adult mind is unable to fully perceive, causing a kind of long-term cognitive dissonance. Extended exposure to this phenomenon reduces the adult brain to the consistency of tapioca pudding... not, as some have argued, tapioca beads, as found in Japanese bubble tea.

But I digress, and time is short.

It seems like just yesterday that we brought him home from the hospital... and also like a lifetime ago. So weird...

Six months ago this amazing little kid came out of the womb and into our lives. Absolutely nothing has been the same since, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s amazing to watch him grow and learn and develop such a sweet personality. He smiles and laughs like a maniac, and wants to crawl more than anything on earth. He has places to go and things to do, and I’ll be happy to go to those places and do those things with him for as long as he’ll let me.

Happy Six Months and a Day, Alex!

Don't over analyze, just go with the flow. Just some advice from someone whose daughter turns 17 in 2 days. Luv ya man, keep up the good work.
