Our little dude is 6 months old today! How did that happen? In so many ways it’s been a crazy fast, amazingly wonderful 6 months, but in so many other ways it’s been the longest and hardest. No one ever said having a baby would be easy though, just that it would be worth it. And it is. It very much is. Ryan brings so much joy to our life! I know, it’s cliche, but he really does. His random outbursts of belly laughs gets both of us laughing right along with him. As he’s begun to explore the possibility of movement on his own, we’ve rejoiced with his successes and tried to encourage him when he fails. He has quickly developed a taste for water, or at least from drinking out of our glasses. 😉 He had his first taste of food the other day –  just the tip of a spoon of applesauce. He didn’t care for it, but it brought us amusement. Gotta love those first-taste faces! 😀 But enough words, here’s our 6 month old little dude!

Swinging is one of his favorite activities!

He’s rarely happier than the first few minutes after Sam gets home from work and pays him a bit of undivided attention, and, of course, that makes me extremely happy. 🙂
