My little Boomba turned six months old yesterday–which was a HUGE milestone for us–especially because it meant that I met my personal goal of exclusively breast-feeding for at least the first six months of Ida’s life. I must say that I am really proud of myself for making it and it was NOT easy. Remember how skinny she was when she was a newborn? And that first month when she kept getting skinnier and skinnier was really hard–but she’s actually getting really chubby now and it’s so satisfying.
She’s like a real person–she laughs (hysterically even) she eats stuff
(so far, avocado and yams are her faves) and makes ‘mmmmmmmm’ noises when things are delish. She points and squeals at the kitty, she sings and loves bath time–she’s got a really chill vibe and, in case you can’t tell-her father and I are crazy in love with her.
These six months have certainly flown by, and the lack of sleep, the physical bananas-ness, the turn-your-life-upsidedownedness of it all is certainly no joke–but amazingly enough I am feeling more energized than ever, so happy to be a mom, and so super duper lucky to be Ida’s mom, specifically.
Happy 1/2 birthday sweet Ida Sky. I love you more than anything.
