1/2 Year

6 months already! I truly can't believe it's been 6 months since I first held mr. itty bitty baby O. We're now zooming our way towards him being a year old and I find myself trying to push the brakes and slow this growing up train down. I finally started sorting through his clothes and packing away the NB sizes that barely fit his head never mind his body. It was a little sad and I'm going to miss a few of those outfits.

6 months in and there a few things that I wish I could go back and do differently. Mostly I wish I had done a better job of capturing and recording those little moments.
Blog more! either here or somewhere. I had started out keeping track of O's days in a notebook so that I could transfer it to a baby book, blog or journal type thing later on. The first 3 months are well recorded but after that I started slacking.
More photos! I don't take enough pictures of the baby. I have lots but there have been some weeks that I don't take a single photo. The horror! I really try to just enjoy and really be in the moments but I need to do a better job of getting in some "cheese" too.

Monthly photos! When I was pregnant I thought a lot about the monthly baby photo. Heck I was even planning on doing a daily photo! Should it be in the same chair? Next to the same stuffed animal or other object? at the same time of day? and on and on. Once O arrived I was so overwhelmed and just never settled on what I wanted to do so it never happened. Starting with this month I'm going to do something like this:

Coming up this week: Mr. O's first taste of real food! I'm going to skip the cereals and give Baby Led Weaning (BLW) a try. I'll let you know how it goes!
