Hello Little Munchkin,
Happy HALF birthday!
Today to-the-day six months ago you were squirming your way through the birth canal and I was vocalising my quite large lungs out in the birthing suite at the Mater Hospital. I’m amazed that the time has passed so quickly, and that you seem to have survived your dad and my parenting for six months without suffering any majorly noticeable strange physical or mental effects.
(Aside: Though the doctor when examining you this week did comment on how stubborn you seemed.Â “Is he normally this stubborn?” was her question in response to your repeated attempts to eat her finger then her stethescope, and not be dissuaded by anyone, nor distracted by anything else. Sure meant taking your vitals was a bit harder than normal.Â Well, there wasn’t much chance of that character trait not getting passed down.)
So.Â You’re still a little gorgeous one. When you first came out of the womb, you looked like this:
You’ve grown somewhat over the six months.Â Funnily.Â I still can’t believe how much.Â This week you weighed in at 7.8 something kilos.Â Heavy like a brick.
We had a very chilled-out celebration of this big milestone.Â You practiced laughing a lot, did a lot of rolley polley on the bed with your dad and I, and we took some photos
and had some great play-time:
Happy Birthday darling, and a big self-congratulatory hug to both myself and your dad for getting this far.
Love and kisses
P.S. And if you’re reading this, leave a comment to Poogie to pass on your wishes personally!
Just to remind you that we believe your nickname ‘poogie’ means kiss in Irish and that’s how we love you. You are a little kiss and the photo of your Mum and Dad and you in the mirror looks the way we always hope you feel together.
Xmas is coming fast like a train, a racing bike, a storm-sped cloud, a stream of ants for sugar…… trust it’s going to be a good one.
Happy half birthday, fatty!! One of your books now has extra special meaning to you! Sorry I couldn’t play with you much on your half birthday – I promise I will poke you lots when I am not working crazy non-human hours xo
