Archive for March, 2011

Isn’t it funny how time seems to speed up the older you get? When I was younger, the days just seemed to creep by ever so slowly. I was born on the 25th day of the month and when my birth month arrived it seemed to take forever to finally hit the 25th. Or when you know you’re going to someplace special, like Disneyland, for spring break didn’t it seem like spring break would never arrive?

But now that I’m in the fourth decade of life, the days seem to fly by. How did we get to March already? I meant to do an update blog on Slugger since she did turn six months old in January, but as the days flew by, she’s now more like seven and a half months old and I’m still holding on to this video that I shot when she turned six months.

Sooo, that means I’m about six weeks late. But the video is so cute how could I not share it with you. I mean, it’s not her fault that I’m bad at posting these things. You can’t penalize her for that.

Sometime in late January, Slugger hit the six month mark. For those of you keeping score at home, she arrived around three months prematurely so her adjusted age is right around three months even though she’s six months old. Got that?

By the way, Keao has a much more current blog with Slugger’s progress. You can check that out here. But without further ado, here’s the video (plus some narration from me).

And of course, for your viewing pleasure, here are some post-six-month pictures.
