6 months already?

Oh Sweet Journey. I just can't kiss you enough. Your cheeks beg it from me. I love watching you roll all over the floor. I love hearing you moan when you are tired. I can't help but join you when you let out a rich giggle. You are so content with where you are in life. You don't seem anxious....you seem to know that you have time. Yesterday was your first go at organic rice cereal. At first you were curious and enjoyed the experimentation but grew tired of the experience after a short while. There are lots of adventures ahead.
You have such patience and tolerance towards your brother. It fills me up to see the relationship between the two of you grow. You are both so lucky. Your smile is as warm as the sun...your spirit continues to be calming and peaceful. But I must tell you...I think there is a surprising spice in all that sweetness. You have found your voice and you let everyone know about it when the moments are right. Asher loves to mimic your screams...and you can't understand why he chooses to be so loud. I hope you are always confident enough in yourself to speak up. From the sounds of things now....you won't have a problem with that!
I am so thankful for your first 6 months on this earth...for all that you are becoming...and I look forward to more surprises from you.
Love,
Mama

What a blessing you are to all of us Journey. I love your name....Watching you grow and develop is a sweet journey for all of us and I for one love the trip. Love you my little sweet lady,. GG

You are heaven sent little one. Such an accepting little love bug, but like your Mama says, I think you are going to have a little spice to you!! Watching you smile, sometimes, I wonder how it could possibly get any bigger! :)
