6 Months Old



Noah turned 6 months old on Monday! Wow. Have fast it has passed.

I would have written this blog entry on Monday, but Noah has been sick with a sore throat, fever and congestion. And being the loving son that he is, he shared.

I went to the doctor yesterday and was diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection and a sinus infection :( If it wasn't for my mom helping with Noah, I don't know what I would have done!

So - On to the happy news.....Noah is 6 months old!

At his 6 month appointment, he weighed in at 17 lbs 7.5 oz. - 50th Percentile.

He measured in at 27" long - 75th Percentile.

And his head has jumped from the 50th to 75th percentile!

I can't believe that it has been 6 months since we gave birth. I just remember the surprise when Dr. Herr told me that we had to take him that day. I had gone into labor nearly a month early and not only could they not stop the contractions, my amniotic fluid was low and the gestational diabetes was at the point that we couldn't control it.

All in all though, the decision was well worth it - We had Noah Bradley at 6 lb. 7 oz. - Stubborn as could be - never turning upside down.
























Do you see that red mark on his face? That was where my ribs were digging into his cheek! I can still feel that pain!

And then 6 months later, we have an amazingly beautiful and healthy baby boy!





















How God has truly blessed us!
