Happy 1/2 Birthday!

Happy 1/2 Birthday Mollie!! You are officially 6 months old today, my precious:)

Thinking back on my childhood & some of the normal and abnormal (in a good way!) things I was a part of, most every memory brings a smile to my face. I had a GREAT childhood. One thing that has always been a part of my life are half birthdays...little did I know, this is apparently not the norm. Ha!

With my birthday being January 3, that makes my half birthday July 3- so needless to say around the time of the 4th of July, there is always a party going on! We'd most likely be at the beach (Gulf Shores, AL) and I'd have friends with me & we'd wear ourselves out swimming in the Gulf or pool. Mom would always make a special cake for my half birthday and it was just another sweet day each year to look forward to.

I guess sometimes you don't realize how those simple memories or traditions will seep into your own children, but funny how they do. And probably WILL turn into your mother at some point:) Lucky for me, I'd be honored.

So, now is the time to celebrate Mollie's first half birthday - cupcakes are on the menu I think! The fun part is that she & I can share our real birthday cakes with each other for their 1/2 birthdays since we're just 3 days different:) If she'll share...

Matt & I have been blessed these past 6 months with a sweet & healthy baby girl, who is just growing before our eyes! At times, I think I cannot wait until she grows up & she can do 'this or that' with me, and then times like last night where she is cuddled in my arms very ready for bed, not too big for me to just sit there & snuggle with her for a bit, I think- wait, I don't want to lose this!! As she rests her head on my shoulder, tousles my hair and touches my skin, I've never felt more content. I know these are the moments I'll miss so much once she grows up.

Can hardly believe we're half-way to 1 year..WOW! She's wonderful & we're blessed to call her ours!
