Wednesday's Walk - 6 months at a time

I do my very best to make the most of every day with my kids. Celebrating half birthdays is just one of the ways we do that. Way back in 2007 we celebrated Sam's very first half birthday by going out to eat. In 2008 we were preparing for the big move to BearCountry during April so we celebrated half birthdays in the new house...on the floor, with picnics.

Look how big my baby boy is now! His smile melts my heart and makes me want to wrap my arms around him forever. He wouldn't mind and has even told me that he wants to snuggle forever. He's my sensitive one, my thinker, my builder, my teaser.

He looks at me with his dark blue eyes and all I see is love. He is sweet, kind, considerate, and long as he's gotten enough sleep. In need of a nap and then it's a whole new ballgame.

He's grown two inches since his 5th birthday back in October. He's worn at least a dozen holes in his pants. He doesn't like veggies much anymore, but will eat them S.L.O.W.L.Y if it means he gets to have a treat.

He loves to read his Bible and talk about Jesus. I love hearing him relate something he learned at school to a situation. He loves Star Wars (even though he can't watch the movies anymore because of nightmares), Legos, Dinosaurs (STILL after a YEAR!), candy, Land Before Time movies, baseball, soccer, and tackling with daddy.

Sam I am so blessed to have you for a son. I love you to the angels and back baby boy!

I love your heart, your zest for life, and your smiles...all of them!

  1. I love that you do that for them! remembering the 6months is such a great tradition! :) and the pictures are adorable. :) did you hear jenney had her baby today?

  2. Such a great idea! I should really do this with my kids. Since most of our family birthdays and celebrations happen in the winter, it would be a fun thing to celebrate their half birthdays in August and September.

    Brother Bear is looking like SUCH a grown-up adorable big boy!

  3. What an adorable blog and kids you have! Your son sounds a lot like mine. I never thought of celebrating half birthdays but what a fun tradition to start.

  4. Happy 1/2 b-day Sam!! Love the pics as always.
