6 months......Already????

I can't believe Grant is 6 months already!! He is such a happy little guy as long as he is fed and when he's hungry, HE'S HUNGRY!!! LOL I started looking through some pictures this morning from when he was born and just broke down at the computer....not because I was sad, but SO THANKFUL!!! It's amazing to see how far he has come and what a blessing he is to have in our family. In the past 2 weeks I have heard of 2 preemies that have passed away, one was born at the same gestation as Grant and the other quite a bit earlier. My heart goes out to those families and I couldn't help but squeeze my little man a little tighter and smother him with kisses. It's hard for me not to think "that could have been us", but then I remember how great God is and how he allowed our son to live and I should never take that for granted. He is and always will be our "miracle man"!!!!

My eyes filled up when I read this. He is such a precious little miracle and it is so wonderful to see prayer answered when I look at him and his great big smile. Muah! I love you guys! Happy 1/2 birthday, little man!

It's so hard to believe it's been six months since that scary day. He has just made amazing progress. Truly a a miracle. I can't wait to see what special things the Lord has in store for this little man!

I remember when Meredith called me to tell me you had him so early!!! It really hit home to me, since you and I were due at the same time! You have much to be thankful for...a healthy little boy and a healthy YOU!!! :)

How much does he way now? I'm curious...Kendall is SO petite and I don't know where she gets it from!!! She'll be four months on Saturday and she's still wearing lots of her 0-3 month clothes. (I put 3-6 on her sometimes, but a lot of them are still big!)
