Madelyn- 6 Month Milestone Session

Don’t blink.

We’ve all heard the song. Heard the advice from strangers and loved ones alike. That every time you close your eyes your baby is one second older than they were. Time is a thief.

But in the middle of sleepless nights (come on Madelyn, you’re 6 months now….you have GOT to learn to sleep) and busy days, our last baby somehow turned half a year old. All her firsts are our lasts. I’m somewhere in the middle of super purging all the baby things as soon as she is done with them, but with an aching heart as I drive away from the donation station. Letting go of the baby stage for me is hard. I will never again be pregnant. I will never again have a newborn. And while saying these things out loud seems hard, I am ready.

As I type this, Madelyn is happy bouncing away in her play gym…and I know soon enough she won’t fit into it anymore. We’ll soon be chasing a toddling baby around, listening to her happy squeals and her sisters giggles. This sweet baby, the perfect combination of all the rest of our daughters, was the best last bookend to our family.
