A Picture's Worth a Thousand Words

Today I got a lot done before Hen woke up. Once he did wake up this happened:

And the rest of the day was pretty much obsolete.

Half-Birthdays and Busy Days

Between Hen and I, we've started: attending a writer's group, SOLIDS,a videography business, ROLLING, 3 books & 2 netflix series,and as of today SCOOTING, since my last post.

It's been a while, but time is flying by for me. Henry is 6 months old today. I can't believe it. I simply can't believe it. I am holding on to moments, both happy they've come and sad they're going. It's given me quite a lot of inspiration for the book of poems (Motherhood themed) I'm writing...did I mention I'm writing a book of poems?!22 so far and quite a few of them edited too.

But what is most important today is that it's my little sweethearts HALF BIRTHDAY. A little about my 6 month (tear) old:

Henry is a laid back little guy who looks on curiously when we are out and about. He never has much to say to people, but he's doesn't shy away either.

At home he is bubbly and energetic. He enjoys yelling at the dog for hours at a time and LOVES his new tot-walker.He also loves all things water so bath time is lots of fun. Sometimes I even get out bubbles and blow them at him.

I worry constantly that I am missing important developmental opportunities, but then I remind myself that I don't want his life jam packed with activities that are "ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL".I want my lovebug to take things slowly, to consider things, to wonder, and to learn by seeing. I guess if that's my philosophy, then its super important to be a really good example for him.

Which is why some of my favorite moments with this little soul have been walking through the park, holding up a lizard for him, imitating birdies and reading stories (coughcough Tales of Beedle the Bard anyone?).

Without further ado, I've thrown together a little video of my chubba chunk , to the beat of the theme poem for my book...which I turned into a song...cuz I'm weird. Enjoy!
