It seems like just yesterday that I was pregnant with Finn, so it's hard to believe that he's already six months old.
It's been a crazy half year. From getting used to my new job as a mom, to learning what he likes and dislikes (he's actually pretty clear about his preferences), to figuring out how to find myself in the midst of being a mother... it's been a busy time!
I had thought that given my challenges in getting and staying pregnant that I would be blessed with an easy baby. If you've read my posts you know that hasn't really happened. The purple unicorn of sleep combined with allergies, eczema, and "failing to thrive", I feel like we've gone through a fair bit with little Finnley. Still, I feel very lucky. I know there are families who manage through much harder times than us. I know that one day he'll sleep better (at least I'm fairly sure he will). And most of all I feel so grateful simply to have him in my life.
His personality is really starting to shine through. He's an emotional, loving, goofy little guy. He loves to observe the world around him and be in the middle of all the action. He smiles and laughs more and more every day and it's amazing to see his mind at work.
He loves to eat. Like, LOVES, to eat. I don't think he's had anything he's truly turned his nose up at. And it's exciting to see him growing and developing his own preferences.
As I reflect back on how much has changed in the first 6 months on life with Finn, I find myself also looking forward to the next 6 months and what we have in store for us. Sitting, crawling, standing, finally figure out what colour his eyes are, and maybe a tooth or three? So many rapid milestones ahead!

I love to cook, entertain, craft and create - all while being a wife, friend, daughter and a mom to a little boy.
