It's been 6 months since you were born. Six whole months. In some ways, it feels like I was giving birth yesterday, and in others, it's as though you've been in my life forever. You completed our family, Dylan. We were not expecting you, but could not imagine life without you. I have been able to enjoy and treasure every day with you. You are the happiest baby in the world. Honestly, I've never met another child who smiles as much as you. Last month, we had you at the emergency room with a high fever, and I was ready to just turn around and take you home because you were smiling at all the nurses. I'm glad I didn't, because they admitted you for three days due to a severe infection, but even that didn't stop you from being my happy little man.
We all love having you around. Kadence likes to "babysit" you if I have to run into the kitchen for something. She is constantly entertaining you and making you laugh. And Gavin, he tries to comfort you when you cry by giving you a pacifier or a toy. It's so sweet. I love watching all three of you interact. When the bigger kids are running around like little maniacs, you squeal with delight and start moving your arms as though you can't wait to join them in the mayhem.
Thank you for being my baby. Thank you for being in our family. I am looking forward to watching you grow and learn. I love you more than words could ever properly express.
