It's been a month, hasn't it? The longest break I've ever taken from blogging since I started several years ago. I hadn't intended to stop for so long--I was away for the weekend but planned to come right back and post about my small-town thrift finds, but then a week passed without posting, then a week more, and now we're here, a full month since my last post. Phew.
Honestly, the break was quite enjoyable. Blogging for me seemed like just another chore, right there with the laundry and vacuuming and all the other things that I'm not exactly jumping with joy to do. I forgot why I like to blog and why it's fun, and was putting too much pressure on myself. Not anymore! I'm feeling guilt-free and re-energized and ready to go again, so I'll start with something easy--a Gratuitous Cute Baby post!
When I last posted, Porter had just hit the 5-month mark. Today he is 6 months old! Some fun things about Porter at 6 months:
*He's getting his first tooth (bottom left) and consequently drooling like a little faucet. Hard to tell who's droolier--the baby or the dog.
*Porter is adept at rolling all over the floor. He rolls and flops and scoots all over the place! If he sees something he wants, he can easily perform a combination of rolls, flips and pivots to get to it.*He gets up on hands and knees and rocks back and forth like he wants to crawl.
*He pushes up on his side to an upright position. I think sitting up is coming soon.
*Porter's eyes are almost completely turned from newborn gray to brown.*He's stopped spitting up so much. Don't know if that's due to the new sensitive tummy formula or just getting bigger, but my carpets are thankful. (extremely spitty baby + rolling all around = nasty carpet stains)
*Porter is such a happy baby! He rarely fusses or cries unless he's hungry or tired.
*His smile melts me into a puddle of goo. :)*He's still the Most Adorable Baby In The History Of The World!
I was busy on my blog break. Evidence of my Craft ADD to come!
