1/2 a year gone

six months ago i looked like this...

a glorious 185 pounds and pregnant
p.s. i've lost all the weight but 3lbs, so guess what dr. morisetty, i didn't keep 30% of suck it

ok back to it, and this was my baby girl

8lbs 8 oz 21 3/4" long 
beautiful and i loved her so much.

now she's this

six months old and sitting!
and sleepy.  

she's more beautiful than the day she was born.  like her father i love her more than the day before.  i just can't believe my baby is so big.  she has the best personality and is just so fun.  her eyes are gorgeous like her dad's and i love just staring at them in awe that they're not brown.  i just can't believe how much my life has changed in 6 months.  life is not as easy anymore, but whoever said kids were easy.  what i do know is that, no matter what, she will make you smile.  you can have the worst day at work, loose a loved one, just be in a dull mood and she will brighten you up.  it's the best feeling.  waking up at 2, 4, 6am, isn't so bad when you have this

smiling up at you.  
it's hard to believe that in 6 more months, kylie and i will be talking about a 2nd baby.  i'm pretty sure i'll be pregnant or nursing for a solid 3-4 years.  depressing to think about, but the reward is SO worth it.  

happy 1/2 birthday "carol bean"

she's precious, she has changed soooo much. she went from a scary misshapen head to a beautiful, smiley baby. (haha i had to add the part about her head because i was a little worried about it)

Geez I'm emotional today & could bawl over this - really I could. I love her like my own & she's more and more beautiful each day. She's so sweet & special - I just adore her & can't wait for baby number 2. PS - you were ridiculously small at 9 months pregnant and I threw up in my mouth over it!
