Six Months Young

Aug 11, 2010 | Full Time Family, On Motherhood | 30 comments

Six months.
I can hardly bare to think about it.
She is six months old already. Actually, closer to seven in the last few days…
My baby,
Juliette Élisabeth.

Sweet Baby
Shabby Boogaloo
and how could I have forgotten… “Baby J.”
She is a sheer joy to me.
The greatest pain of motherhood is the time that
speeds by with nothing you can do to stop it.
Six months old. Already.
Soon she’ll be driving a car and getting married and aaaaaaaah!
But not today. Today I will hug her and squish her and love her as much as I can until she cries. And then I’ll pass her off to someone else so they can have a turn.
Maybe. I gave birth to her.
That means I get extra snuggle privileges.
Momma loves you, Hoolie!

    Happy six months to Juliette! She is precious.. have you noticed that she looks a little different than A and A? I couldn’t place it, but after the farm I realized she looks like Thelma.

    Except in those glasses, where she looks Anna Wintour. =)

    She is so beautiful. We are both enjoying babies at the same stages – my little boy is 7 closer to 8 months old now and soon to crawl. He’s never far from someone’s arms. Oh how I have cherish the first year. So precious I call it the ‘jewel year’ because it reminds me of when you have a new sparkly diamond ring and you cannot help but keep on admiring it!

    Hello Angela,

    She is such a beautiful baby! What a very lovely name you have bestowed upon her. The time really does go by so fast. My boys turned 23 and 19 last month and, courtesy of my eldest, I am now a Nonna!

    Oh my goodness I just want to SQUEEZE her! Love the image of her in the sunglasses~too cute.

    Your sweet mom has been reading my blog for a bit longer that you have. It was fun to learn of your connection. Prior to this I had no idea that you were related.

    I’ll let you in on a little secret. It is hard enough for me to make sure that I return a comment to each and every person who is gracious enough to leave one on my blog. As I work, go to school and do all my own child rearing, cleaning, gardening and cooking, I rarely, if ever, have the time to read the comments left by others on blogs that I am visiting.
    So, I am assuming your recent comment was in regards to the sweet link your mom recently had on her blog. In my mind I am sure you only had a “Who would’ve thunk!” moment in learning that you and your mom read the same blogs. (See you and she are more alike than you thought. 🙂 I however choose to be deeply honored that you both stop by to visit.

    Be blessed.
