Half of a Year!

6 months ago:

4 1/2 months ago:

Wow, how much change has happened to us in the past six moths. Sophie is 6 months old today! A half of a year. I can't believe how fast time has flown, and how much she has grown. It makes me sad to think that she came out weighing a mere 5 pounds 10 ounces, dropping to 5 pounds 3 ounces before deciding to start gaining weight! She is well over 16 pounds now- the girl likes milk!!! I can't believe how much she has changed me. We tried so hard to get pregnant with both of our kids, and both pregnancies were plagued with toxemia- Sophie's with gestational diabetes too. I often wondered why God would do that to one person when some people seem to have the easiest pregnancies ever. Seeing both of my kids makes me realize that it was all worthwhile. Sophie is an absolute joy. She has just recently started putting herself to sleep in her bed- she has always insisted on the swing. She is a very independent baby- only giving love when SHE wants to. She is always smiling, and always laughing. Nothing brightens her day like her brother. When her daddy walks in the room, she squeels with excitment. When mommy picks her up, she tried her darndest to get into the feeding position. I have learned that anything worthwile is worth the price. I would do both of my pregnancies over in a heartbeat, struggle with infertility all over again if it meant getting just one hug and kiss from each of them. The reward that a single smile beamed your way gives is indescribable. I am so blessed.
