Oscarโ€™s Half Birthday [6 Months]

I distinctly remember, just after we came home from the hospital, looking down at the tiny baby in my arms and thinking that six months was an eternity away, and things would be so different. Dean and I would be confident and accomplished parents, everything that now felt hard would be easy, and life would be magical and full of joy. Luckily I was at least right about the last one ๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿ™Œ๐ŸŒˆ.

Oscar is all about others at the moment. He loves to smile and giggle at mum, dad, other babies, and total strangers waiting at the checkout ๐Ÿ˜. He loves funny noises, getting little frights, and watching his parents dance badly to 80s music ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ•บ๐Ÿป. Teething has recently ramped up (but still no teeth! ๐Ÿ’ฅ), and heโ€™s been getting extra cuddles to get him through ๐Ÿ˜˜. Oscar is finally an accomplished rolling baby, and thoroughly enjoys flipping over at every opportunity. Heโ€™s still scooting, but only backwards ๐Ÿ˜…, and making great progress on sitting, with only the occasional topple! This month Oscar has explored lots of different foods ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿฅฆ๐Ÿง€๐Ÿฅ‘๐Ÿ—๐Ÿฅ•๐Ÿ ๐Ÿฅ, tackled his very first flight โœˆ๏ธ, and is about to enjoy a week in the wild north of Australia ๐ŸŠโ˜€๏ธ๐ŸŒด. What an awesome month!

Parenting is a hard gig, but with every month that passes I am more and more grateful to be Oscarโ€™s mum. Being with him, soaking up his joy and excitement, and seeing the world through his eyes is my honour and privilege ๐Ÿ™Œ. More of his little personality is constantly revealed, and while a sleep-in wouldnโ€™t go amiss, I love waking up each morning to his happy, smiling face ready to seize a new day ๐Ÿ‘. Half a year has gone like a flash, but weโ€™re working hard at making each moment count! And seven months, come at us, we canโ€™t wait for what comes next! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Happy half birthday golden boy ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿผโœจ๐Ÿ’ซ
