Six Months

Dear Henry,

You are undoubtedly the sweetest baby I have ever known. Each month that passes shows us more and more of your easy going spirit. You rarely cry, and when you do it is always for a reason. You go to bed easy, wake up easy, and are easy all day long. You are so content to be held, but also so happy to spend endless amounts of time using one of your many toys. Your office is a favorite. It is so funny to watch you "work". You just squeal with excitement as you play. You have mastered the ability to move around the entire office, taking full advantage of all the exciting toys.
This past month you had your very first Halloween. Mama wanted you to go as a nice little woodland creature like an owl, but Papa knew what he wanted you to be...he had his heart set on you being Jean Luc Picard from Star Trek. It turns out that your Papa was right, it was the perfect costume for you! We spent Halloween with Wesley, and you all had so much fun. I know Wes can't wait for you to be big enough to run around and play with him!
You are growing so fast, sweet Henry. You can now roll over from your back to your belly, but you don't do it often. You do love to sit up on your own, and don't seem to mind at all when you fall over! When you lay on your stomach you try so hard to hard to crawl. With a little help from Mama or Papa you are able to scooch along. I know you will be able to crawl on your own soon, and it just amazes me.
You study everything around you. You now have the ability to truly use your hands, and you are taking full advantage of them! You love to pull out your passie and look at it, tasting all sides to see which is best. Actually, you like to taste EVERYTHING! Anything your little hands can get a hold of goes straight to your mouth. You love looking at the world around you. The animals in your nursery are very exciting. I find you in the morning, awake in your crib, with your hand on the deer on your bumper pad. You move over just to be close to him. The same deer is next to your changing table, and I love to see you turn to watch him, always placing a hand on his back. You are so amazing to watch, as you learn and remember. As you try to work out how this world works.
I cannot believe it has been six months since I had you. Half a year since you came and made our family whole. I cannot imagine my life without you in it. I cannot believe how lucky I am to have such an amazing son. A sweet, loving and precious six month old boy. My boy. My sweet Henry. I love you so.



  1. Cannot believe it has been six months! Wow!

  2. He gets more beautiful every day! I'm looking forward to baby-sitting.

  3. Wow, I can't believe it has been 6 months already. I remember when you told us all that you were pregnant.

    I love it when you write letters to is just so cute!
