Happy Half-Birthday, Little Man!

I can't believe it's been a full 6 months since Parker was born. I know that I say every month how quickly the time flies, but it's true! He's like a completely different baby than the one we brought home.

The newborn we brought home was smaller than any other infant I had ever held in my arms. He weighed in at a measly 5 pounds 6 ounces, and dropped to 5 pounds 2 ounces the day we came home. He was nothing but skin and bones.

Now, he's chunked right up. He's got the sweetest cheeks, and eyes that are the prettiest blue. (Please let them stay that way!!) He smiles and laughs all the time. He loves to snuggle, and he's Mama's boy. I am so lucky.

I love you, sweet baby. I look forward to watching you grow and learn every day. You make me smile inside and out. I love every moment that I get to sit and snuggle you, because I know a day will soon come when you no longer want to snuggle. Until that time, I'm just going to squeeze you and rock you as much as I can.

GET OUT!!! I seriously did not realize he was 6 months old today! How did that happen?!?! Wasn't it like, just yesterday that I came down and held that sweet little peanut in my arms? *SIGH* Snuggle and kiss him for me, and enjoy every minute. It really does go by too fast. He's such a sweetie :)

Happy Birthday Parker...what a cutie patutie! You have such a blessed family. I want to personally thank you for all of your kind comments that you have left us from the very beginning of our journey to Halainah. I feel very lucky that our paths have crossed. You truly have helped us with your kind words in some of the darkest times when Halainah's adoption didn't seem possible.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart,
