Six months.

"The great paradox of parenting is that it moves in both slow motion and fast speed. "

Little girl, you're now halfway on your first trip around the sun. Six months flew by for all of us. Each and every day you surprise us with little things about yourself. Oh how you enjoy tickles, giggles and laughs. And that spark in your eyes when you laugh or smile... oh-so-priceless. You're now so active and mobile - grabbing onto things and especially enjoying pulling mum's hair. You'll get yourself in a bind from time to time, finding your way around the floor and your cot by just rolling around. It's getting harder to leave you now with you moving around so quickly, it won't be long that I'll be chasing you around. And that voice of yours, oh boy - can you scream and shriek like there's no tomorrow. 

I can tell you now recognise all of us - somehow at this age you know who's who. You always look around for me when you need to feed. As with your brother it's more of a love and not-so-like stage: you'd give him your coos and giggles and sweet smiles and there are days when you seem to be pretty annoyed at him without him even batting an eyelid. Yep, just the standard sibling stuff and probably a foretaste of the years (many years!) to come. And your dad, you seem to gravitate towards him on pretty much everything else.

Happy half-birthday (albeit belated post), my love. 

It is so awesome to see your personality come out at this age. How you are your own person with your quirks, likes and dislikes. And though it feels like I know you better, I still feel there are still facets of your personality that I have yet to unveil. So yes, I look forward to know you more. 

It is amazing how you fit so perfectly into our lives and how somehow, having you around makes us all cohesive, so complete. Ahia will always look for you first thing in the morning and before he sleeps. Without being told, he'd grab any chance to cuddle and hug you. He can't get enough of you and feels sad when you don't look at him or smile at him. Today my heart swelled up a bit when I overheard him say, "I love you, Keira! You're my sister, we are family!!!" 

In as much as I want to say that I am looking forward to the next 6 months to your first birthday, it is bittersweet for me to accept that you are growing way too fast for my liking. Time's like that, I suppose.

You are a blessing. More than anything else, know that you are so, so loved.
