Otto is 6 Months | Feature Friday

6 months into my pregnancy with O…

PIN IT

It was last June. My feet were starting to swell, rendering most of my shoes unwearable (but thank goodness my glitter ones still fit!) My belly had taken a huge leap in growth, and I was in the throes of finalizing the baby room. Ryan and I were preparing to go on our Babymoon, and as far as I was concerned, September couldn’t come soon enough. It was only 3 months away…

Somehow, the past 6 months have gone faster than those 3 months did. “Once you have kids, life goes by so quickly,” they said. “You blink, and you’re baby is graduating high school.”

Those statements always sounded so cute and cliche to me, but now that I’m living that reality, they feel more like a mean trick. Every day, I am acutely aware of how rapidly this time is flying by. All I have to do is look at that above picture… less than a year ago, my baby has gone from a 24/7 womb environment, only 2/3 of the way developed, to a sitting, eating, giggling boy. WHAT IS THIS LIFE?

Otto is a joy. He’s SO happy, smiley, and easygoing. The “passionate temper” that he had early in life has seemed to fizzle out a bit, although he still has a flair for the dramatic at times. He knows how to turn on the tears, but just as quickly turns them into giggles if you offer a few kisses on his neck.

We love our Otto Ryan and while I can’t wait to see what 8 months, 1 year, and 5 years old brings… I’m learning to be present in each moment of each day because somehow, months 1-6 are already over.
