You’ve reached the middle mark of your first year of life. It’s not an exaggeration to say that it was winter almost that entire time. But seemingly out of nowhere spring arrived, and with it, it seems you’ve grown overnight. You’re filling out, sitting up, and watching us when we eat, with a look in your eye not unlike the one Eller has when Harry eats.
You’ve hit two big milestones in just the past day. You’re now sitting unassisted for a few seconds at a time (at least long enough for me to snap some frames!) and last night you slept all the way till 7 am this morning! Thank you for that.
It might be because you now are rolling onto your stomach in the night. This makes me nervous, of course, but if it results in sleeping all night, I’ll get over it.
You are the smiliest, happiest baby. I went out of town this month (twice!), and when I got back home you just beamed at me. It was a pretty great feeling.
Goodness gracious girl, we just love you so much.
We had dinner with your extended birth family earlier this month, and as they passed you around the table, fighting over whose turn it was to hold you next, I couldn’t get over the wonderful reality of how many people love you so. I hope it settles into your bones so that you walk with it every day of your life.
