you, at six months: will.


You are almost 7 months old! Here's a glimpse into your personality right now.

You are the sweetest, calmest, most content little babe there ever was. If all babies were like you, the average size of families in America would be something like 25. You never cry, and only make the quietest little whimper when you are upset accompanied by big alligator tears that just melt my heart.

You are still a spitter, but you've improved a lot over the last 2 months. Your tummy is happy these days.

You are a Mama's boy. Or maybe I am just a William's girl? You have me wrapped around your tiny finger in a big, big way. I cannot resist your sweetness or the way you squirm and kick your legs and arms and squeal when you see me to try to get me to pick you up. It works every time.

You love to sleep on your tummy and will roll there to fall asleep no matter how many times I place you to sleep on your back. You always wake up first in the morning with the softest little noises and a beaming smile.

You are skinny and long with a perfectly round face and really thick blonde hair. You drool nonstop and have permanently rosy cheeks and huge blue eyes. You are gorgeous.

You love Nora, but you don't like her to get in your space too much, it stresses you out. You especially don't like it when she gets excited and reaches for you but just ends up scratching you instead. This is a constant issue between you two.

You can be shy and have a bit of stranger danger. You prefer to be held by Mom and Dad.

You are more reserved and observant in your personality and like to hang back and watch things unfold. You give strangers a bashful little smile until you've warmed up to them and then the giggles and personality come out.

You just cut your very first tooth on the bottom two days ago.

You love rice cereal, are a PRO at eating, swallowing and grabbing the spoon, and you want a bite of everything else, while we're at it.

You love to stand and have a strong little body. You aren't much of a cuddler because you stay stiff. If I lay you in a chair to play with a mobile you will flex your little tummy and do a crunch until you are almost siting upright. You can sit up in the boppy and are close to sitting up without it.

You are the calm and peaceful in our family. You make the world stop spinning when things are hectic and crazy. I am so grateful for you, William, and I love and adore every thing about you.

These past six months have been a total pleasure. Please never grow up. I can't even bear to think of it. Oh, the heartbreak.

All my love,



  1. Isn't having a boy great? I can't get enough.

  2. How have I missed this and the wonderful post on Nora?! Oh I have been away from the blogging world for too TOO long!! What a sweetheart!! He looks like a mini you to me & Nora looks so much more like Greg. Oh my, they are so big and adorable!!! Clearly, it has been too long since I've seen you. In fact, I had this nagging feeling in my mind for the last month that blogging was what really brought you and I together as friends. That has been the case with others as well, but YOU were forefront in my mind that I want to know what's going on with you & to get your feedback/advice on things I go through and think about and such. Hope to see you soon!



thank you for your shout outs!
