Our last official milestone, 6 months. Of course there are many still to come but when breastfeeding was just starting and not going very well, in the baby fog, life has changed so much I don't even know what to do with myself - 6 months was the goal.
And here we are. There are too many things to write about on what the last 6 months has been like for us as a family but the main thing I want to say is, we love her so.
It's hard to explain what I feel for Poppy. In one moment I love her so much I can't take my eyes off her and in the next all I want her to do is go to bed so I can have some "me time" and for her to stop crying/whinging. Then as soon as I put her down and she nods off I want her to wake up again because I miss her. So I sneak in her room and watch her sleep, then regret sneaking in because I've woken her up and now she wants to play and "me time" is over.
It's a kind of love that you literally can't explain and has so many facets to it if you did want to explain you wouldn't know where to start.
Any-who, here's to the next 6 months Poppy, we love you so. I hope the needles you had today treat you well and you sleep like an angel today in celebration of you having a half birthday!
