Everyone talks about how quickly time goes by. “It goes so fast!” They say. With the challenges that come with being a first-time mom, I never imagined the time would fly by. How did my helpless 6lb 14oz little girl grow into this free-spirited 6-month old? So, why not celebrate Aspen’s 1/2 year of life? The next 6 months are only bound to fly by just as swiftly, and I’m trying my best to embrace every moment!
In a world full of horses, be a unicorn.
In these short 6 months, Aspen has shown every bit of individuality that an infant can demonstrate. She doesn’t just exist, she thrives. Just as I get used to the fact that she sits…she crawls. And just as I adapt to crawling…she’s trying to stand! Nothing stops this resilient daughter of mine. She is unique and wears it with pride. Her beauty only radiates onto those around her and her smile is contagious. This is why I embraced the unicorn theme in celebration of her 1/2 birthday!
Aspen’s Major Milestones
- Smiles regularly when spoken to
- Gives full belly giggles
- Sits up on her own
- Crawls independently
- Transitions from tummy time to sitting
- Easily rolls in both directions
- Says “Mama”
- Pulls herself up to a standing position
All babies have their cranky moments
That pacifier is not just for show! As it turns out, the time of day when the lighting is the best is when Aspen is the crankiest! With a pacifier and vigorous shakes from her favorite maracas, we were able to power through it! Once the cake came out, she was all smiles!
We’ve all heard of the classic “cake smash.” Well, that was the goal here. The truth is, the cake was so well constructed that the best she could do was smear the frosting all over her hands and face! Still, I’d say she thoroughly had fun with it…what do you think?
