My Dearest Aubrey Rose,

Today you are six months old; time has flown by. Six months ago at this time they were wheeling me into the recovery room and I was pumped full of adrenaline, just itching to be able to hold you. You were so tiny and so observant. You didn't cry very much after you came out. I like to think it was because Papa was singing Three Little Birds to you - you were (and still are!) the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.

Today I have been feeling all kinds of emotions about your 1/2 year birthday. Thankfully I had to work so I was able to keep busy and not think about it for too long. But of course, all of my customers asked about you today and I couldn't help but tear up every time I told them what today was and that we were going to be starting you on rice cereal. Every mum just smiled that knowing smile and said I know how you feel  and then they would start in on their own stories about their little ones.


There simply aren't enough words to say what the past six months have meant to me, let alone the past 15 months since I found out you existed. You have changed my life in so many different ways and I cannot thank you enough for that. That's not to say that I had a horrible life prior to you but that you have enriched my life and shown me how to look at the world with fresh eyes. Whenever you see something new or make a new discovery your little eyes just light up. I cannot thank you enough for showing me that regardless of what terrible things are going on in the world this place we live in is still incredibly magical.

Please don't get me wrong, a midst all of the beauty and wonder and fabulous moments we have had some tough times. Just yesterday nothing I did made you happy and when you finally took a nap I cried in the bathroom and begged Papa to come home. But I still love you and all of those tough moments have taught me that I need to work on my patience.

You have your six month well baby appointment soon and I can't wait to see what your stats are!

I have so much more to say but I can see you peeking up at me, you just woke up from your nap.
Aub at Gymboree!

I love you more than you will ever, ever know.



  1. Beautiful post. Mine just turned 6 months recently too. I definitely think it gets easier from here on out, but nothing teaches you patience like motherhood!

    1. Thank you!
      I definitely have to say that patience was never my strong suit and I am very quickly learning that Aubrey is the same way! The perfect example would be tonight as I was getting her out of the bath I had to adjust her pajamas and she threw a fit because I wasn't fast enough - All I could think was "oh man, I am in for it when she is a teenager!"


Hi! Thanks for taking the time to show us some love. I really appreciate each and every comment and I will respond as soon as I can! Thanks!
