Beau Samuel James | 6 Months Old ♥
You really are such a blessing, the most lovely, calm, placid and happy little baby I could ever have asked for. You barely make a peep and if you do, it's just you finding your voice, not crying, just practicing your heavy metal screams - you're so funny! Even when you do cry, it's a low little murmur of a cry, you're not a loud little one by any means.
You're always so content, I don't know how or why you're so happy but I hope this is something that stays with you throughout your life. You're never short of smiles and are happy to just lay there, batting away at your hanging toys or sitting on someone's lap. You're so fond of being chatted too and this usually makes you smile and giggle a lot too.
Your eyes are the happiest I've ever looked into, they have such a look of joy in them and I swear they almost twinkle. It amazes me that when I was pregnant I imagined a very happy baby with long eyelashes and here you are, materialised in real life, my happy little cheeky chappy.
Weaning is something we've tried this month and you seem to really enjoy it. You're only having one meal a day at the moment but so far you've tried a range of purees, all with fruit and veg and banana porridge - which you can't seem to get enough of. You now only drink your bottles warm too, but that's fine for the cold weather, they'll help to warm you up.
You're still very much my small baby and I don't think I'm ready to let go of all your babyness just yet. I still cradle you in my arms, hold you close to me, only really dress you in babygros and hand knit cardigans from Grandma, I was even reluctant to wean you but it has to be done...
I love you so much Beau, you've completed us all. You were the missing piece to our puzzle, you handsome, cheeky, happy little babe.
