You know, there's something great about halves. A half full glass. A shared half of the last cookie. Halfway to a destination. Halves become even sweeter when they're won with a little bit of fight, patience, perseverance, and friendship. That's why we're pumped to celebrate Baby Sage's 1/2 Birthday in February.
The struggle was real to get where we are today, a struggle we willingly shared with our faithful friends and customers. Everyone was so supportive along the way. Well, here we are...celebrating the first half of the rest of our beautiful Sage's life! May it be long and full of love and happiness.
These first six months have flown by with rarely a complaint from either Brent or me. Perhaps it was our long struggle with infertility, but we haven't been stressed or frazzled with our first baby. We feel so blessed with her presence, we tend to just roll with the bumps along the way. That's not to say Sage doesn't play her part well, too. She's such an easy baby: happy, calm, and laid back. She sleeps peacefully through the night and rarely cries.
She's sitting up and rolling over (always to the left) and one of her favorite things to do is pull up. We suspect she may skip crawling and go straight for walking. We'll see soon!
At six months, she weighs in at a whopping 16 pounds (50th percentile for her age). Here are a couple of her other stats: 16.5" head (25th percentile) and 26" tall (50-75th percentile). She's a little go-getter who has Daddy wrapped around all 10 fingers and toes.
We're excited she'll start eating foods this week. We'll cook all her baby food at home with our Baeba Babycook. We look forward to learning what her favorite (and not-so-favorite) foods will be!
The first six months have breezed by and all three of us couldn't be more thrilled. Happy 1/2 Birthday, our beautiful Sage! You're more loved and adored than you will ever know. This truly is the beautiful life.
