In two days, Ollie will be six months old! I’m not sure how the time passed so fast, but here we are. Six months! These past months have been an amazing roller-coaster of learning, exhaustion, tears, laughs, and love.
I have to say though, that I have been very lucky so far. So many of my friends had babies too, making it so much easier to talk, gripe, and question. I’ve also been very lucky that Ollie has such a great temperament. He has his bad days like anyone, but they are well out-weighed by the good ones. It has been a truly amazing past six months, and I am looking forward to the next six!
That being said, the next six seem a little daunting. Six more months before Ollie is a year old! Will he be walking? Talking? So many adventures to come, but will they go by too fast? And what about work? Do I HAVE to think about it now? Do I stay home like B and I discussed, do I go back? Do I find something new, from home, or somewhere else? So many questions, and the biggest one of all: When do we start trying for another baby?
I know! I read that it feels like a switch flipping. Those first sore, tired months, the question makes you cringe! But one day without notice you find yourself sitting on the couch discussing baby names with your husband! Do you still like the girl name you had picked out for the first (who ended up being a boy), and what if you have another boy? What do you name him?
How did this happen? Where did the time go? I can’t believe six months has passed, but I am grateful every day that I didn’t take a second of it for granted! To all my fellow mommies I wish you all the joy you can handle!
