Happy 1/2-Year Birthday Ryder!



Huh?  What happened to the past 6 months?  Where did they go?

Ryder celebrated his 1/2-year birthday today and somewhere in the past 6 months my little baby (who was actually big to begin with) turned into an even big(ger) baby.  Despite his almost 11 lbs. birth weight, he was this little creature who fit perfectly on my chest.  Today, six months later, I have a 22 lb. baby who, in addition to lots of love, giggles and heart warming moments, has also given me biceps that have never been stronger, and that would easily take on anyone for an arm wrestling match.

An overview of the past 6 months:

I am incredibly grateful for all the blessings in my life and despite the challenging and trying moments we experience at times, this journey is a joy and I am loving every (well, almost every) moment of it.
