Felix: 6 Months Old


What can I say that wouldn’t be a cliché? What hasn’t been said by millions of mothers before me?

Somehow he’s six month old now. He’s been on the outside for half a year. It’s been more joy and more fun than we could have imagined.

At six months, Felix has finally figured out rolling over and does it semi-regularly. He loves being vertical, whether sitting, supported standing or being held. But beware if you dare lay him on the floor and walk away. He does not like that very much.

He is the most generous with his smiles. I’ve never known a baby so quick to smile at anyone. He’s quite the charmer.

I’ve started the life documentation nice and strong with a 10+ minute video of his first six months. Dave teases me that by our third kid, I’ll just give them a 15 second video and call it good. But for now, if you’re up for it, here is Felix’s First Six Months in video format. :)

Felix: Newborn Pictures

Our little guy is here. We’ve been in a haze of love and joy as we adjust to life with him. We try to soak up every little detail even as he changes from day to day. I’ve never felt the passing of time so acutely as I have this past month. This is perhaps why his newborn pictures are that much more precious to me. They capture a time that I wish I could freeze.

The most beautiful moments always seemed to accelerate and slip beyond one’s grasp just when you want to hold onto them for as long as possible.”
