6 months old

Today, Carson is six months old and I as a mom am having a bit of a difficult time accepting the fact that my baby is already six months old. I can hardly believe it.

It happened--- before I even knew it, before I could catch my breath, it has happened. 

It was just over 8 months ago that I found out that Carson had spina bifida. I was 32 weeks along... I was so busy getting the nursery together... sewing... shopping.. planning.. dreaming... and  BOOM! The 100 mph whirlwind I was a part of stopped. I stopped.... And you know at that particular moment Ididnt think that I would ever be going again.

I was wrong, a incredible new whirlwind begun. This time more than 200 mph. His name was Carson and he has kept me busier than I ever could have imagined.

Busier feeding

Busier holding

Busier smiling
 Busier tickling

 Busier laughing

So busy and so worn out :)
It's the unexpected moments that definitely affect you the most.

I can't believe it has been 6 months either! I remember chatting with you when you were still pregnant! Months ago you asked me what my Carson's middle name is. What did you end up choosing?
Thanks for posting all those adorable photos. I miss the 6 month age, enjoy it!
