6 months...

it is still pretty amazing to me how incredibly fast the past 6 months have gone by. and somehow, at the same time, newborn life feels so far away now. to think that my little guy is now half a year old just blows my mind. stop.growing.so.fast. (or don't. but slow down a bit little mister). we have got to the halfway point of your first year of life so quick and i know the second half will go by just as fast, if not faster. 
while i look forward to all the coming milestones, i get a bit emotional at the thought of the newness of my baby going away right before my eyes. sometimes i wish he would just stay little a little longer so that i can be the protective mama bear i am, a little longer. just a little. you see, i always knew i wanted kids. lots of em'. i was made to be a mommy. i just knew it. but now that i have my little brandon, i am more certain even that this here, is my element. i LOVE being brandon's mommy. i love the bond we have created. i love nursing him. bathing him. playing with him. watching mickey mouse clubhouse with him hours on end. i love waking up in the middle of the night to his little noises and giggles. i love how big his eyes get when he sees me approach his crib. and that oh so precious smile he gives me in the dark. that intimate mommy and son time we have while he's nursing at 3, 4 in the morning. those are the things i will miss the most as he grows older. i love how he laughs and giggles when mommy is being silly. i love that he thinks i am funny. i love that he makes me feel a different kind of love...a love i never knew existed. i love that he loves me back. i love our love.
oh brandon. i don't know if there ever will be words that will do justice to the immense amount of love i have for you. you are my everything. happy six moths sweet boy. mama loves you!
