These last 6 months don't feel like half a year has gone by. The baby of the bunch is growing up way to quickly.
With the third baby, I have learned to cherish the little things a little more because I know these moments will pass by in the blink of an eye.
These days, I look into my girls' beautiful brown eyes and am reminded that those were the eyes that once stared at me when I was cradling them in my arms while they were nursing.
So as I sit there with my little Conrad today, I'm lingering a little longer while he's falling asleep in my arms.
To my dear Conrad,
We love you so very much. While you are definitely not a cuddler, you know how to smile and bring that charm on. That deep belly laugh when your sisters are playing with you are sure to make everyone else smile around you. Even at daycare, girls twice your age are lining up to talk to you even before I can get you out of your car seat.
Even though the doctor said you were going to be on the shorter side (you got my genes there, sorry), I see no problems with that considering I think you're going to take after your dad and play soccer with those legs. You don't need to be tall for that. Those little chunky baby legs .... I love them soo much!!
A few days ago, you finally sprouted two baby teeth. One on top and one on bottom. More recently, we're pretty sure you've found your love for solids after you ate TWO large Gerber food containers in one sitting.
We might regret saying this, thank you for being our easy baby.
Just when we didn't think our hearts could be more full, you came along.
We love you so very much!
For each of our children, we have done a 6 month video session (in lieu of a dedicated portrait session) to capture these memories in motion. They are only so little for such a short time that I just wanted to capture it.
