Six months of Sammy

Sammy is Six months today, and looking back at the past six months, I can't believe that he ever was this small

That he slept almost constantly the first couple days:

That he ever had trouble smiling at us

That we used to swaddle him and constantly keep him in hats

Or that he would laugh at the most benign things

Because for me, even though I look through the pictures, and recognize that he was so much smaller, and couldn't even hold his head, or that he didn't eat real-person foods, or show any interest in toys, I still will always hold him in my head as a generally naked, smiling and loving baby, who is curious and handsome and smart and loves to explore, and has exceeded every expectation I've ever had.


  1. Just wait until he gets his nipples pierced.

    Happy Halfsie-Birthday, Sammy!

  2. Happy 6 months Sammy! He's adorable - I like that 2nd picture of him all wrapped up like an Eskimo.

  3. Oh, man. He is so adorable!

  4. He's really an adorable baby...if we lived closer, i have no doubt he and Luke would be great friends. Im amazed and humbled at how much more I love my baby every day. You really cant understand until you have a child!

  5. Happy 6 months Birthday Sammy! You're adorable!!!

  6. Happy Halves, Sammy!! I'm glad you're documenting this because one day, right after he's thrown you the finger behind your back, he'll back out of the driveway and into a light pole. And you'll need to remember smiling, happy baby who loves you to the end of the earth and back. There's a reason why some animals eat their young. But he's too sweet and precious to destroy. Remember that.
