6 Months

{Gray with his Nana Labor Day Weekend, Block Island RI}


Six months ago today my life changed forever. Words can't express how much I adore this munchkin.

The poor little guy is sick with the first cold of his little life and we've both been laying low. I'm slowly getting used to the idea of wiping boogers from his nose as well as off my shoulders, my hands and from pretty much every surface he comes into contact with right now. Who knew that babies don't know how to blow their noses? That's just one of the many things I never thought about before I had a little one.

the following will totally help you out:

those bulb syringes (use them, they work!)

saline solution in their little noses... especially at night

Johnson's Soothing Vapor Bath... love the eucalyptus-y menthol aroma...

and a nice glass of wine, for Mama of course!

Gray has changed so much! He's so sweet and beautiful. Love the grin. As far as illness and babies, you'll get used to it. I always find it remarkable how devoted I feel to them when they are truly under the weather. Pure devotion. xoxo

He's a cutie. I hope you are finally getting more rest, a routine and at this time it gets easier.

Hello! I happened to come across your blog. I hope the little one recovers soon! Try using those suction bulbs that help to clear his stuffy nose, we find it helps for us (mine's 8 months and he's constantly clogged!). Take care, and happy half birthday to him! :)

I love BI. We were there earlier this summer in July. Hope the little guy feels better soon!
