Six Months

We started out here:




And now we’re here:



6 months

How can you be around someone every day and still have no idea when such a transformation occurred?


How did I ever live in a world without this face?


How am I ever going to make you understand how completely, overwhelmingly, ridiculously much I love you?

old man

How will you ever forgive me for putting you in these pants and then taking a picture while you screamed because I thought you looked like a little old man from Boca Raton?


I hope you’ll overlook that, because I’m just crazy about you, little girl. Thank you for these past six months.


(And you’re welcome for all those cupcakes in utero. You’ll get to try a real one soon, I promise.)

    Thanks for making a grown man cry at work, Mommy.

    Sadie is so precious. And yes she will know how much you love her, because she loves you back just as much!

    She is one sweet little peanut for sure.

    Cutie-pa-tootie, she is.

    Honestly, I do not normally find babies cute, but she’s an exception. She seems like she has, ah, personality. (:

    Those pictures are adorable. The old cliche is true – time really does fly.

    What, not even HALF a cupcake for her half-birthday? C’mon, Mom. Who needs teeth?

    WAAA!!! Sniff Sniff…

    I like how you’ve co-opted the standard format for forwards to write this little homage… I kept expecting either a witty rhyme or an invitation to send this note to 10 of the best moms in the world!!

    You took the words right outta my mouth. Amazing how fast they grow and how happy and sad it is at the same time.

    I hope that Sadie likes older men, because between her cheeks, and Noah Matan’s cheeks, we could have some seriously cute cheeky grandchildren! 😉

    Squish! What a lovely post!

    When Sadie starts standing and crawling, please make youtube videos of her dancing to hip hop songs. I bet she could beat the pants off of the baby doing the Single Ladies dance. A friend of mine recently had twins, we plan to put opposite gang color bandannas on their heads and do a baby gang war video any day now.
