Happy Half Birthday Lula!

Oh how time flies...my baby is 6 months old. I'm having the hardest time letting this one grow up. She's my last one and I just don't want to believe that I won't get to do this again. Is it wrong to wish I could be a Grandma soon? I'm not kidding, I find myself counting the years until I can be a Grandma and hold a precious baby that I love like it's my own. Maybe I'll just have to become an annoying Aunt and obsess over my nieces and nephews as they come into this world. First I have to convince my littlest sister to have a baby and then to move back to Washington so I can take it away from her. Next I have to convince my other sister who's actually pregnant to not move away like she's planning and...well...give me her baby! I'm sure they'll go for it, right?
Seriously, I don't want this to be the last time I get to nurse, rock my baby to sleep, fit them in my arms, carry them on my hip, squeeze fluffy baby fat, hear my baby giggle for the first time. I would keep going but I'm sure you'd stop reading so I'll stop. I just really love the 1st year and that goes by in a blink. We're already half way there for crying out loud. Tallula still thinks I walk on water, give her a few more months and she'll be done with me. They all do it to me! They love me until they figure out Daddy is way cooler than I am. This happens about the time I stop nursing at one year old. I guess I'll just have to nurse her forever! Just kidding, I promise I won't be one of those moms nursing their kid before they head off to Kindergarten. I will promise to cherish every moment I have left of being her everything! Soon she'll be bad mouthing me just like the rest of the lot!

Baby Lu

I feel the same way about Hannah...it goes by too quickly especially when you know it is your last....makes it harder when they hit those milestones.

what a doll she is! NO, you cannot take my baby! but, you can hold it and love it and squeeze it's little baby fat anytime you'd like... As long as it seems to be taking with the border patrol i think our kids may be grown and in college before we make it there...
