Time flies when you're having fun. And, though I can think of several words to describe our first six months with Noah (sleep deprived, overwhelming, and evil-smelling all come to mind), I could definitely use fun as an accurate description.
It's fun watching Noah grow and learn right before my eyes. It's fun acting like a moron to make him laugh. It's fun taking walks on nice days with Einstein on the leash and Noah in the stroller. It's fun giving Noah a bath. It's not fun mopping up the floor and changing my soggy clothes afterward. It's funny when Noah pees on someone that's not me (hey, fun is the root word for funny, so i think it counts). I could go on and on.
My point is, in all the fun, time has flown by. I can't believe it's already been six months. Six months! It wasn't that long ago that we had his newborn and then three month pictures taken. He's changed so much since then. Take a look:
Oh how I long for the days when he was that light. I think carrying six month old babies in car seats could qualify as an Olympic event in the weight lifting competition. No, seriously. I'm not joking.
But I better get to the reason for this post. I did shamelessly steal it after all. We got Noah's six month pictures back the other day, and they're awesome. They better be awesome after the abusive candlestick incident, right? Let's just say I would have had a better handle on things if I'd have been there.
Seriously, Chriselda is amazing with her camera. She has been everything we could ask for in a photographer. Since the time Noah was in the womb, Chriselda and Libby have been emailing and GoogleTalk-ing each other, shooting ideas back and forth about the next session, or just talking about whatever. They've really developed a great relationship. We love how she captures Noah in his everyday moments and turns them in to awesome pictures that we'll always be able to keep.
Anyway, enough about all of that. You're really here for the pictures, so I won't make you wait any longer. (Even though I know half of you cheated and have already clicked on the slideshow.) Here are some of our favorites from Noah's six month session:
And of course, Chriselda had to get one of just Einstein, so his feelings wouldn't be hurt. Isn't he pitiful?
Hope you enjoyed the pics. Have a great week.
