6 months....

i really can not believe it has been 6 months since we had our sweet baby boy!

6 months since i took my last maternity picture!
39 WEEKS
my water broke that night.... 
the past 6 months have been nothing short of amazing!!
our family grew, our hearts grew, love became so unconditional its unexplainable...

bringing baby home, testing out the swing...
so tiny, C didn't fit into newborn clothes!!

cullen is our everything!
of course, as everyone says, our life has changed....FOR THE BEST!!
this is what perfection looks like, for us....
it's like life before cullen didn't exist, our life is now all cullen, cullen, cullen. 
and we're all smiles about it!


everything we do is for him, everything is about him.  
L.O.V.E.
he is the greatest thing to ever happen to billy and i.  
we truly couldn't be happier. 

i think we were both meant to be parents....

billy is an amazing daddy.  
the second he walks in the door, his eyes scan the room for cullen.  the second he speaks, cullen's head whips around and he can't take his eyes off his daddy.  he smiles and smiles.  billy looks at him with a smile and cullen returns the smile. it's all they need.  they have a connection and a bond that i hope all fathers and sons have.  

cullen is...
21 pounds 6 ounces (95th percentile)
27 inches long (70th percentile)
sitting up (with a little boppy help)
rolling over (from back to tummy)
despising tummy time (we're working on it)
playing toys, he likes rattles, sophie, his play mat, sensory balls, jumping in his jumper
eating cereal and just started on squash
fond of his swing
following gus around like he is some sort of alien
enjoying being outdoors (stroller walks are always a hit)
never getting enough of his daddy
visiting gma and gpa twice a week and getting spoiled like any grandchild should 
sleeping in his pack-n-play, still waking 2-3 times a night (to eat)
giggling over auntie's songs (jump, shake your booty)
watching mickey mouse clubhouse 
and always soaking up mommy cuddles
[i could go on and on]
i am so incredibly thankful that i'm able to stay at home with cullen every day. i honestly couldn't imagine being away from him.  he makes my world go round. i stare at him while he sleeps.  i fall asleep with the tv on but turned down so low i can hear him breath.  he still sleeps right next to me, in his pack n play.  since he is up 2-3 times a night this is just what works for us.
our days and nights are filled with giggles and toys. 

i can't [but can] wait to see what the future holds for cullen.  i love watching him develop, it seems like every day he is learning something new. time goes so quick but at least we're having fun!!

happy 6 months to our sweet baby boy!
